Many thanks to Loretta Lynn for her fine take on my horror novel. She noted that my Lovecraftian story device—the book of dark unholy magic, the Necronomicon—has been mal employed by other writers.
" . . . Imagine my delight and surprise, then, in Hallow Mass, to find that the book's used as intended. And what a narrative built around it."
Protagonist Mercy O'Connor dodges a number of female tropes to "stand out" as "her own personality,"

|(Where the psychopaths grow.)|
Under the Florida sun, Barbara Goodheart taps out her eclectic writing, penning thrillers such as The Wild Place, as well as medical books—co-authored with her scientist husband—dealing with diabetes control.
And now Barbara opines most delightfully on my Lovecraftian horror novel, Hallow Mass:
"Devotees of this type of book will . . . find . . . wonderful writing you
don't typically [see] in this genre.
'. . . unkempt children who watch you like coyotes from trash-littered yards . . . '
'. . . the campus dozed like a drunk in a hammock . . . '
'As the stars rose above, a young prisoner kneeling between Frye and Hutchins commenced to shake like a dog passing a coconut.'
And many other examples of great writing that are too long to include in a brief review . . . "

It's Saturday. Indulge.
