The Hell Next Door: A Novel




FREE on Kindle Unlimited:
Paperback edition forthcoming.

Miles Cooper is surprised when the workers in three moving vans drop off expensive furniture at the empty house across the lane. One of the items is a huge black door with a beautiful face carved on one side and the image of a skull on the other. He befriends the new residents of the house – a young man and his three aunts, all of whom share a bizarre secret.

So begins an adventure that crosses dimensions, taking Miles to Hell and back. He learns the shocking truth about what really happens to human souls in the Afterlife, and discovers that Heaven, Hell, and the human world are all threatened with destruction. To save those he loves, he must work with both angels and demons to defeat a rampaging, ravenous evil.
