Author B.J. Myrickabout this book: DARK SIDE OF THE RAINBOW is a collection of five tales of dark fiction. The title story is based on a real event when neighborhood bully boys killed my cat by pulling a potato chip sack over its head and smothering it to death. Unable to get revenge on the real boys, I wrote my anger out in a short story.

"The Seduction" just happened. The co-author, Hazel Hart, and I decided to write an unplanned story by trading paragraphs through e-mail. The story begins, "Surrounded by caskets, the widow smiled." With that opening, we began our exchanges, which lasted close to a year. The most fun about writing the story was having to realign the plot every time the other writer twisted the story in a new direction.

"Kiss Mummy Goodnight" by co-author Hazel Hart came about because we had a vampire and she thought we needed a mummy. Enter Sadiki, a 3,000-year-old mummy who will grant the main character's wishes--if she kisses him goodnight.

I wrote "Lady in the Dark" because next door to me was a forested empty lot, a dark and creepy place full of mysterious sounds. It triggered my imagination as I wondered what might be lurking there in the dark of night.

"Erasure" was inspired by an abandoned '62 Valiant rusting away in tall weeds. Whose car had it been? Why was it there? I found the answer in the story.

Hazel and I so enjoyed putting this book together, that we published a second collection, EDGE OF NOWHERE.
