Maplewood, Vermont is a picturesque town filled with unique shops, unique homes, and a quaint familiarity all centered around a lake with an unusual history.


Legends, old as well as Urban, float around like the mist that hovers above the lake at break of dawn.

But they’re just stories, right?

Hayden Moore’s life was destroyed when his husband, Malcolm, was murdered. Giving up his job as an assistant district attorney in Boston, Hayden moved to the little burg of Maplewood to recover.

A new life.

A fresh start.

However, something underneath the water is stirring. Something rotten. A deadly secret wakes underneath the black waters of Lake Veronica so disturbing it haunts the nightmares of the local residents.

It’s coming closer…

While recovering from the recent loss of his parents, Daniel Donnelly receives a phone call from his estranged aunt, who turns over control of the family fortune and estate, Timber Manor. Though his father seemed guarded about the past, Daniel’s need for family and curiosity compel him to visit.


Located in a secluded area of the Northwest, Timber Manor has grown silent over the years. Her halls sit empty and a thin layer of dust adorns the sheet-covered furniture. When Daniel arrives to begin repairs, strange things happen. Nightmares haunt his dreams. Memories not his own disturb his waking hours. Alive with the tragedies of the past, Timber Manor threatens to tear Daniel apart.

Sherriff Hale Davis grew up working on the manor grounds. Seeing Daniel struggle, he vows protect the young man who captured his heart, and help him solve the mystery behind the haunting and confront the past – not only to save Daniel’s life, but to save his family, whose very souls hang in the balance.

A collection of Poems by F.E. Feeley Jr

F.E. Feeley Jr is the author of several books including, The Haunting of Timber Manor, Objects in the Rearview Mirror, Still Waters, When Heaven Strikes, and the soon to be released novel, Closer. He’s also been a part of several anthologies including, Indigent as well as Gothika 5: Contact. This is his first published work of poetry.
Born in Detroit, Michigan in 1981 he became an avid reader and lover of the written word. Inspired by the world around him, he now lives in South Texas with his husband John, their German Shepherd Kaiser Wilhelm, and their cat Ms. Abigail Adams.

Promise, Michigan is very much like every other small town across the state. Built on the edge of a lake, the homes sit in neat little rows in cute little neighborhoods. During the summer Promise bustles with tourists who come to spend their vacation dollars and enjoy the lake’s refreshingly cold water. But Promise holds a terrible secret. In the center of the lake is an abandoned island where a curse is rumored to wait for victims, unabated and deadly. Most think it’s just a story, something used to keep kids out of trouble. Still, everyone gives it a wide berth. Everyone except Bret and Adam. They dare to venture out the night of Bret’s birthday. When they declared their love and promise to get married, they believe no one else heard their whispered words – but they are wrong.

Five years later Adam dies, and Bret returns to his family to heal. But someone is killing the people of Promise in random acts of violence. Bret, with the help of FBI agent Jeff McAllister, must discover the identity of a murderer with death on his mind and revenge in his heart.


Their new home on Frederick Street in Clay Center, Kansas, was supposed to give writer Jonathan David and his husband, clinical psychologist Dr. Eddie Dorman, an opportunity to enjoy married life. Jonathan has just released his first major bestseller, and he hopes to finally escape his traumatic past and find the quiet existence he has always craved. Eddie has taken a job at the Kansas State University psychology department, and they intend to begin anew.

They have barely settled in when the nightmare begins. Noises, disembodied voices, and mysterious apparitions make Jonathan’s life hell. Part of the house has decided to bare its teeth, show its jagged edges, and bring back the worst of Jonathan’s past. At first, Eddie cannot perceive the spectral events and fears for his husband’s sanity. When he’s also affected by the haunting, he’s unsure of what to do but refuses to be beaten.

Together, they seek a way to fight the forces trying to tear them apart. The world is a frightening place, but confronting their fears plunges Jonathan and Eddie into absolute horror.

Life after college is not what Aaron expected. Isn’t he supposed to have what he wants to do figured out by now? David never expected his marriage to be rocky, let alone about to end. How is he supposed to move on from this? December in Detroit is normally unforgiving, but an unexpected blizzard puts David and Aaron on a course toward each other. Despite the frozen ground and battleship gray sky, these men find heat together. It’s intimate and illicit, stretching what was supposed to be a one night stand into something more. Sometimes the touch of a stranger, however forbidden, is just what we need when we enter the gray.


Welcome to my blog space. Here I will post my thoughts on …well, just about anything.   I tend to breathe fire – I am an Aries after all and being a writer allows for me to vent.

This is also space where I connect with readers. Please, comment, ask questions, debate with me.

I look forward to hearing from you.


We were all of us made slaves. George Floyd and Racism in America

  When the first leg was shackled, when the first black body forced into the hold of a ship bound for the Americas, the captains of these ships working on orders of European Crowns and European Parliaments, secured our future, inextricably, to each other. There is no America without black people. While the founders founded …

About the Author, Praise, and Contact

First and foremost, I am a husband to my wonderful husband, John. I am a father of our five-year-old German Shephard, Kaiser. I am an avid reader of Mysteries, Horror, and Suspense, and biographies. I am a gamer. My favorite ones are Dragon Age, Mass Effect, Star Trek Online, Skyrim, Assassin’s Creed, Fallout, and Civilization Five. I love to cook and I love trying new recipes (hint hint). I am an avid music junkie from POPular music to Opera, to Showtunes, Gospel, Rock, Rap, and Hip Hop. I am also a Poet – a lot of which is offered on this web page for free. And I do some gay fiction writing from time to time.

I love connecting with people. As an ex- fundi, I grew up in a world where there was this invisible boundary set down between me and the world around me. I felt more like an observer than an actual participant in that world. Since I’ve left fundamentalism – it has been my constant endeavor to be a part of the world. To be a part of humanity. And when I write my poetry or my books, I draw from the experiences of being raised in that environment as well as the experiences of tasting the bouquet of humanity I’d been denied all those years ago.

It’s a way to entertain people, writing is a way to connect to them, as well as a way for me to recover from the world I’d lived in all those years ago. Thank you for coming on my journey with me.

” A man who can cry is the sexiest thing on earth for me, and somehow Feeley (who, by his own description is a big tough tattooed man) writes these guys really well….” -Prism Book Alliance

“I fell in love with all of the characters (even the creepy ghost) and I was very pleased with how everything came together at the end.” – On Top Down Under Book Reviews

“One of the best things that can ever happen is to chance upon a horror novel that actually got me the goosebumps and chills. The last time this happened was when I was reading Stephen King’s ‘It.’….This increasing intensity was so unhurried, I did not notice I was terrified. Until the daughter came in. I screamed. She screamed back.” – MultitaskingMama


“The way the author showed today’s contemporary life of a committed gay couple and mirrored it against the, not nearly distant enough, past is particularly well done” – Attention is Arbitrary.

“I enjoyed this book. It’s certainly a great break from your normal m/m romance, I’d recommend it.”  – Live Your Life, Buy the Bok

“I had to read this page gripping story from beginning to end and so must you” – World of Diversity Fiction

“…my head and my heart are just overflowing with what this book makes me think and feel.”  – Love Bytes


“What I did love was the paranormal thriller aspect of this story. It was creepy and awesome. There was corruption and injustice. I was screaming for vengeance so I probably enjoyed the murder scenes more than I should have.”   Its About The Book

“Written in prose that reads like poetry…This is not only a horror story, a ghost story, but also a first-class murder mystery”- Becky Condit

When Heaven Strikes - High Resolution (1)

“Wonderfully and passionately written, I cannot recommend this one enough. Read it, and be prepared to soar with the winds of love.” – Charlayne The Paranormal Romance Guild

“Fiction is frequently a black and white rendering of the real world. Good guys vs. bad guys, beginning and an end, undying love and deep-ingrained hate. I find comfort in that, many of us do. It’s simple, straightforward, easy. A way to relax. Nothing wrong with that. But when a book transcends that, when it excels in showing the human existence as multifaceted and as colorful as it can be…that’s when reading a story can make you into a better person.
It takes courage to look for goodness and love in debris and hate, and it takes a brilliance of mind to find it. Mr. Feeley’s writing is both courageous and brilliant.” – Roe Horvat

“This story is filled with lies, surprises, fear, racism and redemption. ” – Linda

“Hair-raising and heart-warming. A book as complicated as it’s many characters.” Ulysses Dietz

“So refreshing and it is so enjoyable to read an honest ghost story told incredibly well.” OJCast

“Feeley’s Closer is one of the best ghost stories I’ve read in a long time.” John Inman

“Holy cow, this novel was freaking amazing! A perfect combination of horror, romance, and survival all rolled into a fast-paced, terrifying story that kept me up well into the night, reading with every light blazing in the house. F.E. Feeley Jr. has released a spellbinding story in his latest book, Closer.” The Novel Approach

“F.E. Feeley Jr. writes a deeply poignant tale full of vivid descriptions, well thought through folklore and at a pace that keeps you tuned to the page with rapt attention. The balance of fiction, paranormal, romance and Stephen King-type horror is beautifully combined into an engaging journey, which I thoroughly enjoyed. ” Smut Librarian

“For me, there were several that I enjoyed; the ones about trees and nature, and those about lost loves, but the ones that moved me the most are ‘The Rain Remains the Same’ and ‘The Man by the River’. If you enjoy poetry in general, you will enjoy this book.” Mary Magdalene

“A heartfelt collection of poetry that reaches out to you a little bit differently on any given day. You are given a taste of the seasons, of nature, of love and of the grace of traveling through life. You are taken through tours of pieces of the author’s soul, what he cherishes and what tears him apart. Read a sample or two. If you are a lover of poetry that settles your heart, then I think you won’t be disappointed.”  Rebecca Brown
