On a cold night, in a small town, Sam Cothfer's life is turned upside down when he begins receiving messages from beyond the grave. The messages warn him of impending danger to his new girlfriend, Dina Burns. The day after receiving these messages, Dina is involved in a tragic car accident, caused by a creature known to the dead as "The Devourer," Lucifer's personal Angel of Death.

After Dina's death, the ghostly warnings continue, leaving Sam questioning his samity, his beliefs, and what he thought was reality as he dives into a complex world of which he has little understanding.

About the author (2006)

In the middle part of the Ninteen-nintey-five, I began my writing career with a book titled: "Thoughts of the Damned." A story about a serial killer that started off as a dare from my friends. Immediately upon completion of the first draft, I sent it off to a publisher expecting a rejection but it was accepted without question or a request for a rewrite. Big mistake.

Four years later, I completed my second book "Curse of the Pharaoh," dealing with the life, death, and the curse of King Tut. Being needful of appreciation for my work, I again sent it out, unedited, and again it was accepted. As you can suspect, the money did not roll in like I had hoped so I buckled down, honed my craft, read, read, and read, until I finally began to tap into my potential.

"Away from the Hourglass" is by far the best work I have ever done. It is based on people and events that were a part of my life and I needed to honor in death. Dina Burns was a real person who died in a car wreck at 2:10 AM, on January 1st, 2000. This book is dedicated to her memory, and if you decide to read it, I am sincerely grateful.
