Book trailer for DAEMON on YouTube

My new novel DAEMON uses forsensics and special ops themes to tell a traditional horror story. It's definitely not for the squeamish, but loads of fun. The book trailer is now up on You Tube. Check it out here and leave a comment!

From Crimespree Magazine

My new thriller "The Pressure of Darkness" is hands down the most disturbing thing I’ve written to date; a novel that deals with bleak universal themes such as the cosmogonic…

Early Endorsements for “A Circle of Souls”

Linda Fairstein, NYT Bestselling Author: "A fascinating debut - this novel takes the reader to the darkest places in the human soul, from a writer with the authenticity to lead us there. A stunning thriller and an important read."

Judge Judy Sheindlin, star of the Judge Judy Show: "The seminal work of this fine author kept me glued to my chair until the adventure was over and the mystery solved. A great read!"

Book Synopsis:

The sleepy town of Newbury, Connecticut, is shocked when a little girl is found brutally murdered. The town s top detective, perplexed by a complete lack of leads, calls in FBI agent Leia Bines, an expert in cases involving children.

Meanwhile, Dr. Peter Gram, a psychiatrist at Newbury s hospital, searches desperately for the cause of seven-year-old Naya Hastings devastating nightmares. Afraid that she might hurt herself in the midst of a torturous episode, Naya s parents have turned to the bright young doctor as their only hope.

The situations confronting Leia and Peter converge when Naya begins drawing chilling images of murder after being bombarded by the disturbing images in her dreams. Amazingly, her sketches are the only clues to the crime that has panicked Newbury residents. Against her better judgment, Leia explores the clues in Naya s crude drawings, only to set off an alarming chain of events.
In this stunning psychological thriller, innocence gives way to evil, and trust lies forgotten in a web of deceit, fear, and murder.

Yossi seems to have vanished stage right, but I did get both a producer and director for the film. If you've got more current (or more effective) contact info, I'll give it another try. Getting lucky in LA. Another property is with Warner, another yet with CAA. Who'd've thought?

Hello Harry

I'm new here. A young lady by the name of Krystal Waters invited me to crimespace. I write poetry, mostly freestyle and what ever comes to mind at the moment of where and what ever I'm doing. I love to write. I don't know what I would if they too the pen and note book away from all of us.

Anyway, making my rounds here and there. Stop by when you can Harry Shannon and all your friends.

Hi Harry. Thanks for the add. Look forward to talking books.

I haven't forgotten you or your tip on Yossi Sasson. Nor will I forget you as we approach possible production (two companies interested). Unluckily, when I tried the www.darkhaze.com link, it doesn't work. Any ideas?
At 12:32am on September 21, 2008, David L. Hoof said…
Thanks, Harry. Good lead. I'll follow up. Any role that you might want to consider in the long list of tasks connected with production?
At 9:21am on September 20, 2008, David L. Hoof said…
Given your list of interests, this may be a stupid question, but does your director do/like the horror genre?
At 4:54am on September 20, 2008, David L. Hoof said…
Whore that I am, I'm now looking for L.A. crawlers, since only recently a long-neglected horror novel I wrote ten years ago will be made into a film in Feb, 2009. Natually I'm hustling to make connections inside the industry, assisted by a former writing student at Georgetown U, Sean McElheny, whose first film is slated for production. Sean and I will co-rewrite the script for the horror film. From you bio it looks as it we might have something in common, present or future. You think?
