About Chad P. Brown

Chad P. Brown was born in Huntington, WV. Once he outgrew his childhood fears of haunted houses, clowns, and toy monkeys with cymbals (although those still creep him out a little bit), he discovered a dark love for writing and an affinity for macabre and eldritch matters. He holds a Master's in Latin from Marshall University and is an Affiliate member of the Horror Writers Association. In October 2011, he released his first horror novel, The Jack-in-the-box. He has appeared in the anthologies SPIDERS (August 2012 by May December Publications) and Gothic Blue Book Vol. 2 - Revenge Edition (October 2012 by Burial Day Books). His current projects include a recently released zombie novella, Messiah of the Zombie Apocalypse, and various short stories, as well as a dark fiction novella, The Pumpkin House, which is in submission.

Review by: Tobyann Aparisi on April 25, 2013 :
I loved this story I found it to be a fabulous Halloween tale! The characters are rich and scene is set up just right for a good Halloween haunt. This would make for a great movie. I could just imagine it all as I read it. This story was not as scary as the others I have read from the author. However, I enjoyed it all just the same. I like stories where the abused and beaten are able to exact their revenge/justice in one way or another. I think this story handles that nicely. This author has a keen mind for writing where one falls into situations that may lead them to need to get revenge, or resume power of their lives. I like how he gets us to that point, and through it in his stories. I like how he will use young adults to think these things through and learn a lesson from it at the same time. I just like his stories period! He is very good at spinning a story you would want to read/hear or even see if that was possible.

I loved this story! I found it to be a fabulous Halloween tale, that you would want to pass on year after year! The characters are rich and scene is set up just right for a really good Halloween haunt. This would make for a great movie. I could just imagine it all as I read it. This story was not as scary as the others I have read from the author. However, I enjoyed it all just the same. I like stories where the abused and beaten are able to exact their revenge/justice in one way or another. I think this story handles that nicely. This author has a keen mind for writing about where situations arise that one needs to get back that revenge, or resume power of their lives, and when they do you want to stand up and cheer because of the way it was handled. I even like how he will use young adults to think these things through and come out victorious (and while learning a lesson of life as well). I just like this authors stories period! He is very good at spinning a story you would want to read/hear and even see put into a film if ever possible.
