Scorn Kills is a disturbing and poignant look at unfaithfulness.
William Branch brags that he has been dubbed as The King of True Crime. A successful writer, he authored 15 wildly popular books, one of which was made into a hit movie.
Now Bill’s nothing special to look at. He’s plain and weak looking. But he’s got one thing other men want — money and lots of it. You see Bill makes good money writing but that’s nothing compared to his wife’s bank account. She’s loaded. He married into money and he’s not ashamed to spend it. His wife doesn’t mind as long as he’s faithful.
But Bill has an Achilles Heel. He fantasizes about the women he meets. All is fine until he meets a femme fatale who loves money just as much as he does. One sultry glance is all it takes for Bill to blindly enter into an affair that rapidly gets out of hand. He’s powerless to stop himself even though he knows his wife’s bound to find out.
He tries to juggle his lover and his wife but what he doesn’t realize is that there’s a secret involving one of the two women in his life that’s about to explode. When it does, it will twist their lives in ways none of them ever expected.
About the author
I love to write horror thrillers with intense personal relationships between characters. I started reading earlier in life than most of my friends and spent many hours hidden in closets and under beds, sneaking in just another ten minutes of whatever book I was reading. As soon as I was old enough, my mother would send me to library to pick up books for her. This delighted me because it opened up a whole new world of books not available in school.
I read everything I could get my hands on but was drawn to sci-fi, horror and thrillers. As I matured, I would say my main influences became Stephen King, Dean Koontz and William Faulkner. My writing definitely reflects those influences.
I can honestly says my twitter bio describes me to a T – Write, scare myself, turn all the lights on, write some more. Take a break, play pool, kick butt/get butt kicked, go write more horror, double lock door.
