Many readers consider Where Darkness Dwells my best novel to date. I usually agree with this sentiment, if for no other reason than it was the most difficult to write. It wasn’t the meticulous research involved, or the setting, or the various character points-of-view that hindered the novel’s creation. No, it was the bleak material itself that nearly did me in. I was possessed by the story, compelled to climb from bed at 3 am for several months to commit the horrors of Coal Hollow to paper. In the end, I’m glad I went through that crazed ordeal. It shaped me as a writer, and everything I’ve written since has been better for it.
I’m sure many of you have already read Where Darkness Dwells. If you have, thank you! If not, now is a great time to pick it up for just $.99.
“Glen’s storyline was really interesting and fresh, and his depiction of a small coal mining town during the Great Depression was very believable. There is a bleak atmosphere to the story as he paints a somewhat depressing picture of the town of Coal Hollow, but there is also a sense of hope, community and self-worth within the characters that adds a touch of realism and depth. It is readily apparent that he did a lot of research on this time period and it definitely pays off.”
