Angst-ridden Ayden is forced to revisit his past.
Angst-ridden young man, Ayden, finds himself held captive by his former friend, Phillip. Phillip is convinced Ayden holds the key to finding his missing girlfriend.This shocking claim forces Ayden to revisit his past—an adolescent world shared with his older brother, Everett. It is a world filled with wondrous and often horrific experiences, where truth is uncertain and dreams and imagination blur with reality. Yet digging up the past doesn’t come without its consequences. And soon, Ayden finds himself thrust straight into the path of old demons. ‘Where the Cats Will Not Follow’ is a surreal coming-of-age psychological horror novel.
From the Author:
Beyond the surrealism and nightmarish qualities, I see ‘Where the Cats Will Not Follow’ as an exploration of unhealthy relationships. At its core, it’s a coming-of-age story filled with manipulation (who is manipulating who?), angst, and gut-wrenching self-discovery. I wanted to capture the emotions of someone resisting the transition into adulthood so vehemently, so keen on staying in the past and attempting to relive it, that he is practically kicking and screaming against growing up.
About the Author:
I am the author of ‘In the Graveyard Antemortem,’ ‘Cracking Grace,’ and ‘Where the Cats Will Not Follow.’ What interests me are stories you can’t quite put your finger on, stories that may start in a familiar reality, but begin to cross the line a bit into the whimsical and surreal. I am drawn to darker themes and like to dabble in horror, although I also like to mix different genres depending on where the story takes me.
