In 1994 in Woodcutter's Grim, fifteen year old Cheyenne Welsh frustrates her “Romeo” James Beck by her constant parenting her five years old sister Dulcie. Since her sibling was born, their mom has been mentally ill and their dad always away on a dig or in the basement nurturing his latest find. When she races home in a panic with James following her, Chey’s fears prove real as Dulcie and the child’s favorite doll, hideous Ajuoga, are missing. Making it worse, she realizes their Daddy satiated his ivory nymph the now alive Die Diep in the basement of the Welsh home.

Fifteen years later, still grieving her loss, Chey comes home to sell the family property following the death of her Daddy; though she refused to attend his funeral. When she fled, James angrily said no to her pleading for him to leave with her. Now a doctor he prays she comes home unaware that her Dad’s evil steadfastly welcomes home the prodigal daughter.

The eighth Woodcutter’s Grim thriller (see Beauty Is The Beast and One Night Of Eternity) is a chilling horror tale “loosely based on Metamorphoses: The Story of Pygmalion and the Statue by Ovid”. The second chance relationship between James and Chey enhances the strong main storyline of a good earth mother fighting the ancient evil her Daddy wrought upon his offspring. Readers will relish the latest work by this wonderfully talented writing wizard.
