About Allan Krummenacker

I was born and raised on Long Island New York. Always a dreamer I fell in love with Fantasy, Sci-Fi, and Horror shows and movies. Some of my favorite all time TV shows that I still watch on DVD are the original Dark Shadows, the original Twilight Zone series, Doctor Who, The Outer Limits (original) and many others.

I came to California in the mid 1980's with my Mom and one of my brothers. Once here, I fell in with a great crowd of Doctor Who fans who introduced me to other science fiction clubs and conventions. It was while attending the Sacramento Doctor Who Fan Club that I met my wife Helen. Together, we got into costuming and attending sci-fi conventions where I learned a great deal from authors, actors, and those folks in the special effects departments. All these experiences helped fire my imagination and I began writing short fan-fic stories for the club newsletters.

in 2008 my career in Real Estate took a downward spiral and I began to rewrite story-lines of shows to keep my spirits up. Soon I realized my rewriting efforts had taken on a completely different life from the original shows I was watching. Eventually, I began taking the story lines I'd created and re-populated them with original characters of my own. I brushed up on my grammar and began researching agents and publishing as well.

The result was my Para-Earth Series where I introduce both my characters and readers to a whole new take on the parallel world concept. To date I've produced two novels in this series and am currently working on my third book with more coming next year.

So pull up a chair and sit back as I share with you tales of ghosts, psychics, and mysterious beings unlike anything you've ever read before.

Not my usual genre but I enjoyed it nonetheless. It was genuinely creepy and engrossing. I felt like the last half of the book is where the author really got into the groove, the characters, dialogue and story became powerful. I would have gone 5 stars but some of the early dialogue and characterization felt unrealistic and would have benefitted from a bit more research, especially in the area of the police work and human relationships. All in all though, it's an awesome first novel, I look forward to his next book!

Exhilerating! The story kept me tense the whole way through. I normally don't read horror as I prefer science fiction and fantasy but after receiving a copy of the novel it is my habit to always read all the way through and I'm glad I did. There is even a touch of sci-fi in the mix which pleased me. The story was creative and, at times, frightening, the good way a horror book should be. A number of sub-plots rounded out the novel but it is the main plot that is so riveting. I don't want to post any spoilers except to say the concept of the evil hidden in the river is a nice change from coming from underground. For fans of the horror genre, this is a must read.

Good ideas, well paced and well plotted, with interesting and engaging characters.

But it needs a thorough editing; I felt like I was reading an unpublished draft. The common banter style made the characters tend to blur together, and really, could they not sometimes just get on with their bloody jobs instead of making with the constant sexual jokes & innuendos? And the author very badly needed to consult someone actually British for the voice of the supposedly British characters - these are teeth-gratingly bad at times. (What is Oye even supposed to mean? Oy? Oi? Aye? What kind of English are we even talking about? Seems to veer randomly cockney & posh.)

I got the book free in exchange for a review; I hope this isn't so harsh as to be discouraging. There's a lot of good in it; it just needs some balancing and tweaking.

Thrilling book with a lot of twists and turns. The author takes the reader on a ghostly and psychic journey. It's a quick read that proved to be very entertaining.

He did a great job of mixing horror and spooky story lines with character development. Once I was able to sit down and read the book, I was sad to see it end.

There were a few spelling, missing words, and grammatical errors in the book, but with a great plot line those can easily be overlooked. I was too entrapped in "what the heck is going to happen next?" to really focus on the issues.

I look forward to any upcoming books in the series.

The Bridge was a fantastic story that completely sucked me in. The characters were great, with witty banter that had me cracking up. You will not be able to put this down! This story takes a charming English psychic into a dark, mysterious, and evil world.

Twists and turns will have you thinking, "did that really just happen?"

Wonderful story reminiscent of my Dean Koontz days. I will be watching for more from this author.

"Just then the human wall, known as Casey stepped in front of him and gesteured to a table, 'The ladies are waiting for you.'
'So is St. Peter,' Alex muttered turning and heading towards what he hoped would not be a last meal."

I absolutely loved, loved, loved The Bridge!!! I do have to say
that there are a few spelling and grammatical errors, and a few places where the sentence structure could use a little bit more editing/proofreading. However, this was not bad enough to cause any problems with reading through those areas.

With that said, I absolutely fell in love with the characters and the plot! The story was absolutely amazing! It has a
wonderfully amazing supernatural element and I really loved the way the author portrayed Native American Shamans. The mystery was so intense and suspenseful ... I had a hard time putting the book down for any reason. The plot is full of twists and turns that kept me guessing and the ending was absolutely amazing with a twist that I did not expect! I really hope that the author, Allan Krummenacker, will write a sequel to this book! Either way, I look forward to reading more from this author!
