Girl with a Black Soul

A Novel of Suspense

YA supernatural Fiction

When teenager Chad Montgomery is targeted by a bully after his father’s death, he takes the wrong fork in the road—a trap set by the evil one—to destroy the very talents that define him.
When his beautiful new girlfriend offers him a place to crash in her uncles run-down abandoned gas station, he leaves home to “get his head on straight.” But he soon learns that deprivation, encounters with murderous bikers, and scrapes with the law is a slippery slope that only leads from bad to worse.


Skillfully written suspense. I couldn’t put this book down.
