About David Enochs

I live in the northeast portion of Kansas with the love of my life, Jamie, who supports and encourages me in everything I do, especially my writings. I am relatively new to the world of professional writing but draw from a long history of reading and my travel experiences to more than thirty eight states and three different foreign countries.
My favorite reads are usually anything with more than a 1000 words. I have a few select authors I really enjoy covering a wide variety of genres such as Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Brian Lumley, H.P. Lovecraft, Ann McCaffery, Terry Brooks, Timothy Zhan and one of my newest favorites, Claudy Conn. There are few things I enjoy doing as much as reading, the exceptions being writing, playing chess and spending a quiet evening at home with my family.
Inspiration for my stories comes from many places, it could be from someone in a crowd who catches my eye or an interesting idea I’ve seen throughout the day which doesn’t leave my mind until I write it all down. I’m a firm believer that if you put your mind to something, the possibilities are endless as to what you can do.
I love to hear from fans with good, or not so good, feedback and can be found on facebook, search for David A Enochs Author, or on my blog at denochs.blogspot.com.
I hope you enjoy what you read and I’m looking forward to giving my readers many more stories in the future.
Thank you,
David.

Review by: Vanessa Hamlin on Dec. 30, 2011 :
Dark Twisted Tales is a quick read novella consisting of five separate and unrelated stories. The title of the novella is quite apropos for the tales inside. I would not stick this novella in the category of horror, but the tales a definitely creepy reads. I was able to read the entire novella in about two hours. With it consisting of five stories I would recommend this as travel read. I love to read this type of book while traveling via airplane. The lengths of the stories are perfect for waiting for the other travelers to board the plane or while waiting at a short layover. I travel by plane often and I look for this specific type of book to travel with.

Inside the Envelope gives readers a glimpse into how past deeds have a way of finding you not only when you least expect it, but also by the method of delivery.

The Maple Tree is the sad tale of the bunch. Kyle and his mother are running from an evil in their lives. Being the new kid at school and eager to make new friends Kyle never questions some of the oddities about his new friend Johnny, or perhaps it is just the naiveté of a young teen. Johnny is a good friend though and there for Kyle when he needs him.

Lured was my least favorite of the group. I think it shows that perhaps you should sometimes ignore the things you think you may see. Chasing the things that your overactive imagination allows you to see can often lure you to trouble.

A Cute Little House with one very creepy room! The potential new renter gets a little more than she ever dreamed possible while checking out her little fixer upper rental property.

A Matter of Conscience… yeah sometimes that voice in your head NEEDS to be ignored. A gentleman who has lost his job and continues to watch his life spiral down the toilet there after learned that lesson the hard way.
