….he felt the wet slide of the dog’s burning hot tongue on his face, and the scrape of its razor sharp teeth against the top of his head. A white-hot agony of crushing pain followed, as the jaws began to close.”

The wine-red trillium that carpets the forests of the North Carolina Mountains is considered a welcome harbinger of spring—but not all such omens are happy ones. An Appalachian legend claims the Black Dog, or Ol’ Shuck, as he’s often called, is a harbinger of death. If you see him, you or someone you know is going to die.

But what happens when Ol’ Shuck starts coming for you in your dreams? Nightmares of epic proportions haunt the deacon of the Light of Grace Baptist Church, and bring terror into the lives of everyone around him. Even MacKenzie Cole and his adopted son, Rabbit, find themselves pulled into…

    • Aw, that’s so nice to hear, Mary. I really hope you like Rabbit! He’s part of my life now, keeping me company in my head, and commenting on daily events as only Little Rabbit can. (He’s an old soul.) Some people don’t need “book learnin'” to be profoundly clever, even at ten years of age. 😀 Can’t wait to hear what you think.

    • Well, the legend of the Black Dog IS a bit freaky. And deaky, too, probably. 😀 But Rabbit shines a light that pushes back the darkness, you know. It’s his gift. 🙂 Thanks for sharing, Linda. You are always so good about that! It’s a special pleasure to have you in this group! ❤


    • Thanks, Debby! I might actually get around to launching this book, if I’m not careful. 😀 In the meantime, it’s lovely to have such a nice review, plus a couple of others already on Amazon. And boy, do I know exactly how rare those spare moments are. And then you have one, like I just did, run outside to trim back an overgrown plumbago bush, and get stung by a wasp!! So much for the joy of a spare moment! Hahaha.

        • Nope, but I found out that vinegar really IS the thing for wasp stings. You wash with soap and water, immediately, pour vinegar over the sting, then make a wet compress with vinegar, and in fifteen minutes, it feels pretty good. All the swelling went down, too, and it had been BAD, because I didn’t do anything for ten minutes or so, until the pain really set in. So. Baking soda for bees and ant bites, vinegar for wasp and hornet stings. And now I know. 😀

            • It’s like a miracle, now. No swelling, barely even pink, and it’s stopped hurting. I will NEVER forget to keep vinegar on hand. We have lots of wasps and bees in our yard, as we are pretty much a live and let live environment, here. Mostly pesticide free. Normally, I work around them all the time, and we leave each other in peace, but when I started whacking away on the shrub, I disturbed their little nest, and they came out in full attack mode. Luckily, only one of them got me.

              I’ve had honeybees land on me to drink water off my hand, when I’m using the hose. Wasps can be more aggressive, but they don’t normally bother me. I guess I looked like Godzilla, come to destroy their beautiful home. 😦 I’ll be more careful, next time. This particular wasp builds a very small nest, only about 2 inches across, and there are usually never more than 5 adults hanging around. (Paper wasps are a whole ‘nuther story. RUN AWAY, RUN AWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!! 😀 )
