Max Kilgore only has one dirty habit: digging for fossils. One day, to his
horror, his shovel strikes not upon a dinosaur bone, but a pit to hell—and out
of it comes a devil. Specifically, the kind of devil who eats a lot of junk food,
watches a lot of reality television, plays a lot of video games, and refuses to
leave Max’s basement. But evil is still evil, no matter what form it takes. And
Max has to find a way to comply with the demands of the big red menace, lest he
lay waste to everyone and everything Max cares about.
With the help of Lore, a former goth girl who knows a thing or two about the
dark side, Max goes in search of a new abode for his unwanted guest. Finding a
place where he can reside in luciferian luxury isn’t easy, but Max has strong
motivation: his mother, whose terminal illness the devil promises to cure if
Max gives him what he wants. Lore has her doubts about making a deal with the
devil, but Max will stop at nothing to save his mom. And pretty soon, he’s
doing things the good kid he once was would never dream of doing. Clearly,
hanging around with a devil is a bad influence. But how can Max get rid of the
guy without incurring the wrath of hell?
HELLHOLE is coming out January 6th, 2015!! GET EXCITED!
About this author
I grew up under
four feet of snow in Syracuse,
New York. I received a degree in
theater and sociology from Boston
College, where I was
active with the Committee for Creative Enactments, a murder mystery improv
comedy troupe that may or may not have sparked my interest in wildly improbably
bloodshed. I have since worked as a tour guide, transcriptionist, theater house
manager, scenic artist, movie extra, office troll, retail monkey, yarn hawker,
and breadmonger. I live in Boston
with my husband, two cats, and a closet full of black hoodies.
