Lake Spring Cemetery is one of the first cemeteries I happened upon during the writing of the Reaper Series. This cemetery sits up high on a hill in Dent County overlooking the highway but mostly hidden from view.
This view (above) was the inspiration for a scene in book three, Reap & Reveal.
I like the two stone lions guarding the entrance.
There are several very old headstones in the this graveyard. THis stone was broken.
And finally the best photo. The gate to nowhere. A portal maybe? I wanted to open it just to see what might happen but I didn’t.
Reap & Repent blurb
Ruth Scott can read the energy of every person she meets. Then she meets Deacon Walker. She can see his ice-blue eyes, his black hair, and his gorgeous face. But this beautiful stranger has no aura.
Deacon is just as unsettled by Ruth—and, having spent more than two hundred years ushering souls to Purgatory, Deacon is seldom shocked by anything. As he helps Ruth to understand her true nature, she awakens desires that he decided long ago a Reaper can’t afford.
A demon invasion forces Deacon to confront the darkness in his own past even as he fights to save the human souls he’s charged to protect. When he’s taken captive, his first concern is for Ruth. But Ruth just might be able to save herself—and the Reaper she can’t live without—if she can learn to wield her newfound powers.
