About Richard Schiver

Richard has always had a fascination with the macabre. He grew up listening to ghost stories told by his grandmother while screech owls punctuated her words. He and his cousins would spend summer nights camping out in the backyard of the haunted house next door when he was young.

He acquired a taste for reading at an early age that became a voracious appetite. He reads every day, his tastes having become more eclectic, with his interests ranging from horror to historical narratives. The only thing he really looks for is a good story.

His goal as a writer is to give the reader a story that will stay with them long after they've closed the cover of the book.

He currently lives with his wife in Lavale, MD, where they share their home with four furry, four legged, children. When he's not spinning tales of terror he can be found tossing the ball for his lab Max, or making a mess in his woodshop.

Richard can be contacted directly at and would be delighted to hear from you.

Review by: chucklesthescot on March 22, 2014 :
Donald and Susan are a couple at war and are going away for a few days to try and sort things out. The two of them bicker about Donald getting them lost and hating each other and then comes the car crash...

After exiting the car to get help, they look for help but only find an abandoned town and Susan can hear music from the forest but all Donald can see are shadowy figures. He fears that something bad is lurking there but Susan wants to explore.

OK so I did know what was happening and how it was going to end as I have read quite a few similat stories through the years. It may not be an original concept but it was still a decent short story worth a 2.5 as opposed to just a 2 star, but I can't give half stars out.

I love this story. It has real emotion, and is proof that you should be careful what you ask for. You have a wonderful description-filled flow, and great dialogue. Also, i love the twist at the end. I hope to see more in the future. Two thumbs up....five stars.
