Mike Shererabout this book: In my Middle Grade paranormal adventure 'Shadytown' a young boy encounters evil spirits entering his small suburban town. Sean is overwhelmed and terrified at the beginning of his journey, but grows to become a fierce warrior defending his family, friends, school and entire community against this evil. He is mentored by his paternal grandmother, who gives him a Celtic cross passed down through the generations that can open hidden doors, and a pet rattlesnake with secret powers. He rallies close friends to fight at his side, and as they do they develop abilities they never realized they possessed. This is a rousing battle to the finish between the forces of good and evil.
Shadytown is a place like Hawkins, Indiana, in Stranger Things - an ordinary place where extraordinary things happen.
I enjoy doing research for my books. That is one of the joys of writing, acquiring new knowledge. For example, while writing Part 2 - Cedar Bog, I needed a nocturnal activity to take place at a campground, and came across moth walks. They are more popular in Europe, but are starting to catch on here in the U.S. I've yet to go on one myself, but I will at the first opportunity. Yet with research I was able to describe one.
'Shadytown' was published January 27th B.C. (Before Corvid). I have already sketched out the next 2 books in the series, and have ideas for additional ones. I hope it will be a long strange trip.
