About the Book

"Outcast Vera and popular jock Max are up against dark forces that stretch much further than their small, coastal town-and into the very heart of evil"--

Book Synopsis

The Conjuring meets The Vow! This is the terrifying story of a girl, a dark angel, and the cult hellbent on taking over her small, coastal town.

Vera Martinez wants nothing more than to escape Roaring Creek and her parents' reputation as demonologists. Not to mention she's the family outcast, lacking her parents' innate abilities, and is terrified of the occult things lurking in their basement.

Maxwell Oliver is supposed to be enjoying the summer before his senior year, spending his days thinking about parties and friends. Instead he's taking care of his little sister while his mom slowly becomes someone he doesn't recognize. Soon he suspects that what he thought was grief over his father's death might be something more...sinister.

When Maxwell and Vera join forces, they come face to face with deeply disturbing true stories of cults, death worship, and the very nature that drives people to evil.

With death cults, possession, exorcism, and demons, Small Town Monsters is like all of my favorite horror movies rolled up into one unputdownable book!--Gretchen McNeil, author of Ten and #murdertrending
