Grave Discoveries: Twilight Cemetery

Twilight Cemetery is behind the Twilight Church and overlooks I-44 just outside of Phillipsburg, MO. I drive by it several times a week. Want to know where the bodies are buried?

Check out Find-A-Grave.It was an older cemetery than I had expected. Handshake engravings seemed to dominate.

I love when the top half of broken stones are leaned against the remaining marker. Arts and creepy all at once.In the use-what-you’ve-got vein, this marker is a big ass rock cairn. Practical if not descriptive.I liked this one a lot.Tiny stone, big plant. Works for me.And these? Just lots and lots of rock markers. I have no idea how they know who was ever buried there. I suppose now it doesn’t really matter.A book-of-life marker. I like the symbolism of starting the next chapter.

These patina covered stones turn me on.



Speaking of graves, did you know that the primary mode of travel for reapers is from consecrated ground to consecrated ground? Cemeteries are like the subway stations of the nether world. Want to learn more?

Check out Reap & Repent (book one) and Reap & Redeem (book two) available at all ebook retailers.

The only thing worse than having nothing to live for…is having everything to live for.

They see death. Can they share a life?

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.

He’s a reaper who has given up on saving souls. Will a dying woman be his salvation?

After a century of enslavement to pure evil, Kylen Larson is finally free. But he’s long past caring. The only woman he ever loved is dead, and he’s tormented by memories of the horrors his demon parasite forced him to commit. Now, he lives for nothing more than hunting down the infernal creatures invading Meridian, Arkansas, and destroying them.

Olivia Evans is in the final stages of cancer when Kylen accidentally saves her from demonic possession. When he rescues this innocent soul, Kylen rediscovers his mission—and his heart. All he wants is to help Olivia stay alive. He’ll just have to fight off an invasion from Hell first…
