Scott A. Johnson is a native of Texas: a state filled with ghost stories, legends, and folklore. The latter tales had a great influence on Scott during his childhood. Scot enjoyed watching Chiller Theater as a child along with his brother, and he came to appreciate the work of Borris Karloff, Vincent Price, and Bela Lugosi. During his educational career in junior high school, Scott fell in love with the art of writing when he read The Cask of Amontillado by Edgar Allan Poe. He began his fiction writing career during his attendance at college at Texas State University-San Marcos, formerly known as the Southwest Texas State University. He graduated from the university with a Bachelor’s Degree in Mass Communication and Advertising, and he later took on a full time position working as a Media Technician for the English Department at the same university. During his employment at the college he met with a number of fantastic authors including authors from the faculty and visiting authors.
Scott has since published short stories in a variety of magazines including “The Corpse Magazine,” “Alien Skin Magazine,” and “All Hallows.” He also presently writes a column called Cold Spots for Dread Central and he has authored numerous novels and nonfiction books. Scott resides in San Marcos with his wife Tabitha, and his two daughters Zoe and Anna. He currently teaches the Masters of Arts in Writing Popular Fiction program at Seton Hill University.

After borrowing funds from his mother and father to purchase a small house in the historic district of San Marcos, Gabriel slowly begins to realize that he has bought into far more than he bargained for.

Bill, seeking to reunite and connect with his seemingly crazy father also seeks to leave his emotional pain behind him.
