first set out to write about Whiterock and Doctor Victor Tesla, the book was never intended to be a vast series. The first draft followed the hauntings of a family over the course of one night. Beyond Whiterock and the Tesla family, there’s not a lot of correlation between the new Ghost Town and that first book. That story had been written and was set aside for some time before I decided to revisit it. In making notes for a rewrite, a new direction took shape and the Ghost Town series was born. The original draft has now been reworked with a lot of its content appearing in my short story, ‘The Reaper of Geneseo Falls’ which should be released in a year or two.

The ‘Ghost Town’ series started out as experiments in a small farming community that saw a peaceful and serene rural town get ravaged and destroyed. The perpetrator was one Doctor Victor Tesla, a scientist who was working on a weapon only to be betrayed by his government. His wife and daughter murdered, Doctor Tesla fled to America to continue his work only to discover that another government was getting ready to betray him. Plans were in the works to kill Tesla and his team and steal his work. That’s when Tesla decided to take revenge.
