Synopsis for Born a Serial Killer (an excerpt from Born a Serial Killer)

Johnny Delmer was born in a cabin that should have been condemned in a small town known as Docerville. Johnny’s parents didn’t have much money to put food on the table for little Johnny to eat. Johnny’s father Jack worked at Doc’s gas station in Docerville whenever he wasn’t drunk. Johnny’s mother Susan worked as a waitress at Dugers Diner also located in Docerville, but only part-time because she had an alcohol problem as well. The Delmer’s didn’t own a car, so if they wanted to go to work or to the store they had to walk in the heat, rain or snow. Being that Johnny was just a little boy with dreams and visions like any little boy his age. All Johnny knew was the poor life he was given and had no idea most people owned cars or had running water in their homes. If little Johnny wanted a drink of water he would go to the well in the back of the cabin and if Johnny was lucky he would get enough water in his cup to wet his lips.
Johnny’s father had a short fuse and it didn’t take much to set him off. If little Johnny wanted to spend time with his daddy. His dad would kick him and tell him to go play with the chickens while he scolded his wife Susan about how awful her food tasted. Johnny didn’t like the way his father treated his mother. For instance, if Susan didn’t cook his food on time he would beat her or if he thought the food was too cold he would throw the plate of food at her. Jack would make comments like, “What kind of woman are you, you can’t cook or clean. I don’t know why I married you.”Jack would also call her a fat pig. Seeing the way Johnny’s father treated his mother was the early stages that would mold little Johnny Delmer into a Serial Killer.
As Johnny was reading the dirty newspaper, he came across an article on Ed Gein who was a Serial killer. Johnny was over taken with excitement and the more he read about Ed Gein’s killings the more excited Johnny got. Johnny said, “I want to be just like this man Ed Gein. We have something in common, we both enjoy killing. But I have never killed another human being. Maybe someday I will kill another human being. Who knows maybe I’ll be the next Ed Gein?”

My Review for Born a Serial Killer

Finally a book that is sick and twisted! I have read a lot of books, and some are morbid, but nothing like Born a Serial Killer, and let me tell you, I want to read his other short stories! I have become obsessed! If you like mutilation, serial killers, blood, gore, and more, you would love this and I am sure his other works!

Synopsis for Floor Four

An old abandoned hospital haunted by the ghost of a serial killer. A group of friends too curious for their own good. An old man hiding a secret.

The old and vacant Saint Vincent Hospital is said to be haunted by the ghost of David Henry Coleman, the notorious serial killer known as The Mangler. Coleman died on the fourth floor after being shot by police. For Brandon and his friends, their curiosity gets the best of them as they explore the dark halls despite ‘Old Man’ Jake’s warnings. No one knows of Jake’s past connection to the serial killer and the hospital.

Now, on the anniversary of The Mangler’s death, a group of high school kids are planning a private party on the haunted fourth floor. Jake must keep everyone out and protect them from the true evil that lurks on Floor Four, while Brandon falls deeper into the Mangler’s supernatural world. 

If you like your scares with a twist of the twilight zone, then you’ll love Floor Four’s take on the supernatural.

My Review for Floor Four

The book kind of reminded me of the second season of American Horror Story, where they were at Briarcliff. It had that same creepy feel to it. I loved the way the author wrote the story, as I was able to see clearly what was going on. Of course, my imagination runs wild, and every time I hear something in the house, I have to take a pause on the reading. If you like serial killers and haunted hospitals, check it out!
