Following the death of Virginia Andrews in 1986, the Andrews family worked with a carefully selected writer to organize and complete Virginia Andrews’s stories and to create additional novels.

The identity of this writer was kept a secret from the general public for years, but the ghostwriter has since been identified as horror novelist Andrew Neiderman, beginning with the completion of Garden of Shadows and the later novels of the Casteel series.

Neiderman has carried the VC Andrews torch, satisfying her devoted readers for many years, as well as writing dozens of other novels, which include DEFICIENCY, Unholy Birth, Life Sentence, Deadly Verdict, Garden of the Dead and THE DEVIL’S ADVOCATE, which was made into a major film starring Keanu Reeves, Charlise Theron, and Al Pacino. He also wrote the screenplays for Rain, based on the VC Andrews novels, and Duplicates.

“The Ghosts of Ravencrest delivers on every level. Delicate, creepy, detailed, and beautifully crafted, this reinvention of the gothic ghost story into a sexy, sleek modern chiller is a marvel of suspense and atmosphere. A knockout of a horror yarn!”

Jay Bonansinga, the New York Times bestselling author of The Walking Dead: Invasion, Lucid, and Self Storage.

“Ghostly secrets abound. Tortured spirits wander the hallways. Star-crossed lovers walk the paths of time. Servants connive, and the heroine faces an uncertain future …Run, do not walk, to get The Ghosts of Ravencrest. Tamara Thorne and Alistair Cross take the reader on a delicious journey of twisted family secrets, troubled dreams, and barely-concealed passions. Wrap yourself in the silken robe of this story and escape to Ravencrest.”

THE WALKING DEAD Author, Jay Bonansinga, Joins Us for a Chat


If you missed last night’s show with THE WALKING DEAD author, Jay Bonansinga, be sure to give it a listen. We talked about Daryl, Carol, Rick, Carl, and Michonne, and got an inside peek at the creation of this crazy-addictive series.

Jay also told us about SELF-STORAGE, his new supernatural thriller about a lonely divorced graphic novelist, Johnny Fitzgerald, who has a six-year old son … and a drug problem. Deserted for ten days in a self-storage unit, they face horrors both real and imagined as they battle hunger, thirst, and withdrawal symptoms. My co-host, Tamara Thorne, and I agree that SELF-STORAGE is one of the best books we’ve read. Ever. Just click the pic below to listen.

MOTHER: Coming Soon From Thorne & Cross


Coming this spring: MOTHER – a new novel by Thorne & Cross.

MOTHER

A Girl’s Worst Nightmare is Her Mother …

Priscilla Martin. She’s the diva of Morning Glory Circle and a driving force in the quaint California town of Snapdragon. Overseer of garage sales and neighborhood Christmas decorations, she is widely admired. But few people know the real woman behind the perfectly coiffed hair and Opium perfume.

 

Family is Forever. And Ever and Ever …

Nothing escapes Prissy’s watchful eye, nothing that is, except her son, who committed suicide many years ago, and her daughter, Claire, who left home more than a decade past and hasn’t spoken to her since. But now, Priscilla’s daughter and son-in-law have fallen on hard times. Expecting their first child, the couple is forced to move back … And Prissy is there to welcome them home with open arms … and to reclaim her broken family.

 

Home is Where the Terror Is …

Jason Holbrook loves his wife. He’s heard Claire’s stories about Priscilla, but now it seems Mother has mended her ways, and as he uncovers a cache of vile family secrets, he begins to wonder who the real monster is. Lives are in danger – and Jason must face a horrifying truth … a truth that may destroy him … and will forever change his definition of “Mother.”
