As THE STONE STAIRWAY and THE DUNGEON OF COUNT VERLOCK But Brendan’s film fan obsessions threaten to undermine his new friendshipbefore he can truly understand what it means to spend LIFE IN A HAUNTED HOUSEPrentiss continues to chart his own path through the horror genreA poignant This is not a ghost story in the supernatural sense The closest things to ghosts are the memories of the characters that are part of the house that brings them all together It is a coming of age story about a young boy and his fascination obsession perhaps with his favorite low budget movie producer The movies were his special connection to his father who is now divorced from his mother and living in another state The movies also help to form a bond of friendship perhaps or perhaps less with the daughter of the director Brenden and his mother move a lot because of her job Therefore Brenden is always the new kid at school and seldom makes friens before moving somewhere else The latest town seems like it is going to be even worse when he makes a social blunder at school But then he meets the daughter of his favorite movie producer She invites him to her house where he is thrilled to recognize the setting used in so many of the low budget movies he watched with his father Brenden forms a friendhip of sorts with Melissa despite the fact that neither seem to want to advertise the friendship in publicWhat follows is the tale of this friendship its ups and down and the conseuences of it all There is many points of did this really happen was it Brenden's imagination or maybe the start of a psychosis or something else All of coming through the filter of Brenden's narration This is what makes the story both interesting and at times frustrating as the reader must figure out what to believe The character of Brenden is very well fleshed out of course Other characters seem to fleshed out as well but as you read the story you come to the realization that you are only getting a shallow look at those characters and their motivations This isn't sloppy writing though It is just the way Brenden sees life and other people I would have liked to have heard from Melissa especially in the book's conclusion I would rate this as 35 starsAs a side note the author has wriiten a series of short stories about the fictional low budget movies that are talked about in the story You do not need to read these stories to enjoy or understand this story but they seem that they would help flesh out the world of the story

Life in a Haunted HouseLy moving sometimes funny and oftentimes bittersweet human portrayal of a young man trying to make sense of his parents’ divorce his place in the world and the true meaning of friendshipI can do no less than give Life in a Haunted House my highest recommendation Cemetery Dance Onli I enjoyed this for the author's effort than the execution The author clearly loved writing this novella and probably put a lot of personal stuff in it That's what comes through and keeps you engaged The story itself really doesn't have a ton going for it but the characters are drawn well and have lifeI must confess that I freuently see this author's works linked with Kevin Lucia and Richard Chizmar and the line and as a horror and coming of age genre fan I really haven't been able to jive with any of their works I think some people are wired differently I am a huge Ronald Malfi fan and find a lot of King influence in his work Whereas the three unnamed earlier seem much Koontz I don't know if that's helpful to anyone else
