Massacre at Bear Creek Lodge
by Robin Barefield
In this exciting new novel by wildlife biologist, guide, and writer Robin Barefield, Alaska State Trooper Sergeant Dan Patterson flies to a remove area of Kodiak Island to investigate the massacre of eight people at a small lodge, where he encounters the worst murder scene he has ever investigated. How did someone kill eight people in the middle of the wilderness and then disappear? Patterson takes a hard look at those closest to the lodge owners. Did estranged siblings Brian or Deb Bartlett murder their parents and six guests at the lodge? Was the killer the mysterious outdoorsman who lives a few miles away or someone at the cannery in this sparsely populated bay? Each time Patterson picks up a lead, new evidence shifts the course of the investigation. Meanwhile, the killer strikes again, murdering one of Patterson’s main suspects, and Patterson knows he must stop the monster before more people die.

America’s Most Promising Fiction Writer
Mary Flint spent the first fourteen years of her life in Anchorage, Alaska before moving to South Texas. She also devoted fourteen years to studying music, learning to play both piano and violin, and earning degree in music performance in college. Mary is also an artist, enjoying painting and drawing in her free time.
Mary’s love for reading led her to try writing her own stories, and she began writing her first book at the age of fifteen. After finishing and publishing her first book at seventeen, she realized how much she loved writing and decided to pursue being an author as her career.
Mary loves creating stories that let readers escape into the worlds she has built and explored with her characters. Her time in the beautiful scenery of Alaska and her study of music and the arts gives her a unique perspective in the science fiction and fantasy genres. She hopes that her readers will enjoy exploring these worlds and characters as much as she does.
Monthly Book Review: Ravens Cove
Spiritual warfare meets small town Alaska in this unsettling tale of horror by Mary Ann Poll. If you are a fan of Stephen King, Edgar Allan Poe, or Bram Stoker, immediately rush to the nearest bookstore–or computer if you prefer the eBook–and purchase a copy. However, a sincere word of caution: Do not read Ravens Cove at night during a rain storm, especially if you are alone. I made this mistake once, but nevermore. If you do not believe me, I offer more evidence: The abject depravity of evil forces Mary Ann has conjured from her fertile mind will terrify you to the depths of your soul. But if you have sufficient courage, do not allow my humble warning to deter you from a terrific read.

I have been an avid reader all of my life but more so since retirement. I love reading all different genres. Currently, I am listening to four different audiobooks and reading one eBook. The subjects range from an autobiography of a church leader, a religion book explaining beliefs, a historical romance plus a murder mystery. My eBook is a book about a women’s book club. In addition, I have read numerous self-help books in the past. I love being transported to different places and times. It’s a chance to get out of my head and my own life and enjoy visualizing somewhere else and someone’s life.
