The fun, believable characters who populate the tales of New Brunswick author, J.B. Cameron, are the result of a rather unorthodox style of writing that he employed early on in his career to help him develop lengthy novels. He usually writes the first drafts in the form of a screenplay, allowing him to focus completely on the pacing, plot, atmosphere, and characters of his books in a more fluid and dynamic way. Once the tale is complete in this format, the script serves as a template when fleshing out the actual story, allowing him to cherry pick elements from his first pass that work and easily rewrite things that don't. The result is a book that is so vivid at times, it will make you feel as though you're watching it on television.
J.B. Cameron is a member of Crime Writers of Canada, the national professional association for mystery and crime writers in Canada. Presently, he has three novels and a companion novella completed of a planned five-book paranormal police procedural comedy adventure series, entitled "Reading The Dead: The Sarah Milton Chronicles." He also dabbles in science fiction and horror short stories, an ongoing zombie adventure series on Wattpad, and "Magpie & Jynx," a run of urban fantasy novellas for a multi-author collaborative series entitled "The Twin Cities Series." Future works on his desk include a comical Jim Butcher-style paranormal detective series and four additional novellas, spanning multiple genres.
When he's not head-first into his imaginary worlds or working in the capacity of an eLearning developer, J.B. Cameron enjoys PC gaming, graphics design, writing online interactive fiction, and other pursuits that make his inner geek squeal with delight.

Reading The Dead: Fidelius in Aeternum (The Sarah Milton Chronicles, #2)
I received a free copy, through LoP, in exchange for a review.
Now on to the next, or so Sarah Milton thought. She never really thought she would be revisiting the “Fancy Dress Killer” Harry Sands, since he was convicted and locked away. But now, copycat killings are starting to surface, leaving Sarah and Anna, her ghost partner in crime, trying to figure out are they truly just copycat killings or is there something more to it, something otherwordly? This investigation along with another one, where her former partner and mentor is being accused of murdering a woman, (another police officer) has Sarah right on the edge of sanity. A lot of surprises and old memories are going to be brought to the surface and hopefully Sarah and Anna can get to the bottom of the mystery, before more dead bodies show up.
'Sands wrapped his weapon in both hands, before looping it around the police officer's slender throat. He lifted her head by her windpipe, savoring her distressed gagging as she struggled for oxygen. Her body twisted and flopped under him as she attempted to free her hands and escape, but she couldn't move. Her attacker pinned her to the ground. Sands pulled her leash tighter, relishing the feeling of her life fading under his hands.
“Don't fight it, officer,” he breathed into her ear as he tugged her head further off the ground. “Death is the natural conclusion to everything. Give into it. Welcome its dark embrace as you would a lover.”
GREAT second book! I was so hooked, from the very beginning. Loved the pace of the story line and also all of the flashbacks. It explained what had happened between Sands' and Sarah's characters and how everything comes full circle. Highly recommend!
