Hitchcock Said Before Reading Psycho--
"A nice clean, nasty little piece of work.
That's what I am looking for!"

That's What You Will Get When YOU read TOM...

A failed writer begins one story after another in his Denver basement office, as winter and a deadline begins closing in just before Halloween.

The leaves begin to fall and his neighbors begin decorating their porches and lawns, but he can't seem to make it beyond the kitchen at the top of the stairs where he goes each day to feed his two new kittens, Rocky and Rusty.

Desperately trying to get a book to market before he misses his best season, one story after another begins to take shape then is dashed on the rocks of depression. A depression that takes him again and again just as it seems to take his stories that suddenly quit telling their chilling tales.

Out of sheer desperation, he begins to tell his two kittens about TOM, a character from one of his many stories that started out so well, but again a story he could never finish.

Much like other great horror stories surrounding a blocked writer, he realizes that his failed stories -if he can just string them all together- might be just what he is after.

And so-- our little story begins.

Six short stories tell us of TOM's pain, his past and finally a present and future, as first a guy that ran out of gas, a visit to happy hour gone terribly wrong, his high school bully and the cat that never came home on another Halloween two decades ago, all come to visit TOM in the basement.

TOM - Dreams Of Horror is a novella that looks at all of us, our ability to love others and the ability to love one's self as the writer takes us on six short rides into the darkness of his life, of lives imagined and the process that the famous and the unknown writer must go through as they labor to scare the life out of us all.
