An American Slavery Horror Story

Southern United States of America, 1858.

A slave auction goes wrong leaving a group of slaves, that were meant to be sold to Billette Hall, in the hands of a cruel slave master. That sale left slaves separated from their loved ones and family members. Marion’s life changes when Master Jesse of Billette Hall Plantation summons her into his quarters for an important task. She must sneak into the auction grounds and help the displaced slaves escape. Those slaves are to be brought safely to Billette Hall.

Armed with a Revolver and a single shot, Marion, the 15-year-old slave girl, must lead the displaced slaves on a 4-day trek through the wilderness to safety. The trek is harrowing and filled with danger as they are forced to avoid bounty hunters, slave catchers and their dogs.

Making matters worse, Marion and the rest of the escaped slaves soon discover that there are nightmares more frightening than the slavers. They are being hunted! A strange unknown man, covered in mud and wielding an axe, stalks them. Everyone who has crossed his path is dead. Marion and her tiny group of frightened men and women will suffer the same fate unless they can rise above their fear.

BILLETTE HALL – COMING SOON – Historical (slavery) thriller/horror

Read the first un-edited chapter here

When I first started Billette Hall my thoughts were “why aren’t there any stories that take place during slavery times that isn’t actually about slavery?” Yea, it takes place in slavery time, and that is the backdrop but the story can just be a story that happens during that time and not directly related to slavery.

I started out to write a screenplay with that in mind. yea, it has slaves, yea it takes place during slavery but it’s a horror story on its own and the horror part is just horror… not slavery or slave related… other than the setting and using that time to help with the rules of the story, etc.

Well. I didn’t completely accomplish what I set out to do because the story is still being driven by the character being slaves dealing with being slaves and slavery times…but it is still a horror story and it gets part of the way there. I think in this case it makes it interesting.

HYPO: EXORDIUM coming soon!

Chauncy and Tre are childhood friends. Tre, who works for a pharmaceutical company, is in town on business. Chauncy hadn’t seen Tre since college and decides they should catch up. After picking Tre up from the airport, they are ambushed and kidnapped. Held hostage in an old abandoned house. With hopes of escape, Tre and Chauncy use an experimental drug from Tre’s company that gives them abilities.


This will be the first book in the Hypo Series. Hypo: Exordium.  It is a Serial Short and will be available on September 17th (estimated). There are 3 parts of an ongoing story.  They will be available in Ebook format through Amazon’s Kindle bookstore. I will release the second part within 2 weeks of the first, and the final part soon after!
