At some point in each of our lives, most of us have experienced extrasensory fear – whether it was brought about by personal events, a movie on the widescreen, a television program or series, exchanging scary stories with our friends, or reading a tale told on the written page. And as you know, many of those experiences were capable of staying the test of time. Hitchcock’s “Psycho” forever took care of my taking a shower in a motel room – especially if the stall had a curtain.

The tried and true masters of fear are established in our minds, and we believe that time spent with their works will give us the chills and thrills we are looking for. However, the world continues to revolve and change, and the 21st Century has spawned new talent with fresh blood and tales with haunting twists and turns that assuage that need, that desire for a tingling in your spine, the feeling of some one or some thing creeping up behind you, or the need to have the lights on when you close your eyes at night.

Along with my co-authors of the Voices Anthology and our never before told paranormal stories, I believe we have created that atmosphere. Whether it is the middle of the day or a dark starry night, during calm weather or a turbulent storm, if you are in the mood to be afraid and aren’t wary of tales from beyond, your answer for fear is, Voices … written for you by Christine M. Butler, Peggy Randall-Martin and J. M. Tresaugue.

Looking for Timmy, by Peggy Randall-Martin

My brother, Billy and I, hadn’t a notion that our misbehavior would trigger a horrifying nightmare for the folks in the small rural area where our grandparents lived … it was a wide place in the road that some said was a stone’s throw to nowhere … the residents were haunted by the young boy who went missing from the area in 1945, and ten years later, my brother and I were a big part of the reason they were once again looking for Timmy …

"Kissed in Paris" Review

"Kissed in Paris," by Julette Sobanet

Review by Peggy Randall-Martin

When I tell you that once I started reading “Kissed in Paris” I couldn’t put it down, it’s a reality not a cliché! The lead-in is creative and snappy, and the story continues to build from page to page - through to the last word on the last page. Juliette Sobanet’s characters don’t just exist – they live! Her descriptions of the French countryside, each back street and café take the reader on a colorful Parisian journey. Click on the link below to read the rest of my review:

"The Disappearance of Mavis Woodstock," by authors Rosalind Burgess and Patricia Obermeier Neuman

Review by Peggy Randall-Martin

Rarely are two polar opposites as well suited for lasting friendship as Val and Kit, but the combo is dynamic. What one doesn’t research, the other imagines … they could have been the love children of Erin Brockovich and Columbo! Click on the icon below & read the rest of my review:

5.0 out of 5 stars Kept me reading till I finished!, December 21, 2011
By S. A. Lane "Books Galore" (Oklahoma City, OK)
As a life long reader there are very few books that I've read that I can't figure out the ending within the first few chapters. The end of this novella truly caught me unawares, not to mention scaring me silly. When you get close to the end of it, make sure the lights in your place are all turned on. This novella has one twist after another. It introduces evil early combined with love, murder and a healthy dose of the occult. I started it after the news went off and couldn't put it down until I finished it. Then I had to read a little something lighter before I could go to sleep.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Tale of the Dark Side, December 12, 2011 By PVine
A tale of ambition, love, lust, and betrayal entwined with a thread of paranormal manifestation that both fascinates and horrifies. Just as you think you know what will happen next, a new twist appears. Don't miss this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Creepy and Intense, December 6, 2011
By MoonlitDreams (South Carolina USA)
This short novelette is a paranormal thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat and guessing until the end. It actually reminded me of some of the scarier urban legend style ghost stories I used to hear in my youth. Peggy Randall-Martin is definitely a master storyteller when it comes to all things that go bump in the night.

Backwater Runs Deep! 5* Review

Backwater Runs Deep!
March 8, 2012
By A. Wells (Oxford)

Believe me, if you think that your family is plain and boring, by the time you finish Backwater you'll be counting your blessings. Anything is a blessing in comparison with being a member of La Bauve circle.

he novel starts off as a light-hearted drama set in the exciting city of New Orleans in the 1950s when 'girls were girls and men were men.' The main character, Aldric La Bauve, enjoys double portions of the life's juiciest bits: he has two cars, two homes, two daughters and two wives. He is equally devoted to each family and is almost, well ... disturbed when the circumstances change and he has to lose half of his pleasure. And how does he make a choice?

As he starts a dangerous and a cruel game, beings of darkness are awoken and take control of the events. When the master becomes the prey, a true hunter is revealed in an innocent and wholesome daughter of his. Now, I get uneasy when the children are concerned, but when a child is an offspring of pure evil, the reader finds herself challenged trying to stay on the side of good. The key scene, when the girl shows the true self, is well set in the surroundings and the accompanying events.

And just as you think that you've got it all figured, a surprise leaves you dumbfounded and you want to go to the beginning of the book again, now looking out for the clues and symbols. Peggy Randall-Martin masterfully employs an array of stylistically devices to enhance the readers' immersion. Madness and mythology, love and literature, spirits and spooks, all play a role in this wonderful, Gothic drama of hers,
