Behind the Author
C. Thomas Cox specializes in suspense and thrillers. He lives in Maryland with the love of his life and his two wonderful sons.
When he's not playing baseball or basketball with his boys, he can often be found at the lake attempting -- and often failing -- to catch a trophy fish.
Memories Never Die
Thirty years ago, Jim got away with murder. Today, his victim came back -- and he brought trouble.
The dead farmer whom Jim thought he had left behind in Vietnam has revenge on his mind, and Jim's wife and son are his targets. Unless the threat the farmer imposes -- and possibly the man himself -- is only a figment of Jim's PTSD-driven hallucinations.
While Jim races to protect his family, he battles the mental demons that the farmer's re-appearance rekindles. Will he be able to save his family before his memories destroy his mind?
The dead have feelings, too.
Self-proclaimed author Paul Fick just knows he has enough talent to top the best-seller lists...even though none of his works are good enough for publication.
His persistence, however, agitates the spirits of some of the great -- but deceased -- authors. They decide to stop him before he sweet-talks some unsuspecting publisher into giving him a chance.
