Until These Voices Quiet, a novel

A state trooper blazes along undulating mountain roads after a speeder refuses to pull over. Something is not right. Something is in the air. A series of increasingly bizarre events precipitate the destabilization of the entire region. Phones stop working. Digital signals are lost. An ancient language breathes in the evergreens, soughing through the pines: Asinîya mihkâwa. The rocks are red.

Outside of the small town of Red Rock Falls, Sheriff’s Deputy Aletha Pruitt arrives at a farm house. She has Tom Blackburn, a young Native American man, in custody. The Morgan workhorses are kicking up a fuss in the barn. Her FTO, a grizzled cop named Bickford, gets out to investigate a suicide call when something comes rushing around the farm house at him. In the commotion, Blackburn escapes.

Until These Voices Quiet features a ensemble of characters, many of them transplants to the region. The Stender family is from New Jersey, as are the two sisters who go missing in the woods after a wedding goes drastically wrong, and a drunken groom skulks off into the night. What is happening? Each of our heroes – the young, unstable Raymond Stender, the rookie deputy Aletha and a host of others carry restless demons. Has something come to collect the markers of their pasts? Is it something more, too? Something to do with Blackburn’s father, who, a transplant himself, once boarded at the old farm house? It’s this very farm house where these people find themselves converging… fighting to stay alive.

Until These Voices Quiet is a twisting, turning adventure in a post-apocalyptic atmosphere. Think you know what’s going on? Think again – the story moves ever onward, unveiling the histories of the heroes one chapter at a time, uncovering the source of the spell which grips them all one whisper at a time. Asinîya mihkâwa. The rocks are red. Indeed they are, and more blood will spill before the nightmare is over.
