"L.A Detwiler has a way with words that suck you in a dark creepy tunnel until you've finished!" ~Goodreads Reviewer
A few years ago, my husband and I were watching the movie Krampus when I got the idea to write a Christmas horror novel. I wanted to combine my love for the holiday season with all things creepy. This is where The Christmas Bell was born.
I had so much fun writing in the world I created, I actually ended up writing many more books in this world (the town of Oakwood). Still, The Christmas Bell is my favorite because it combines family tradition with horrifying secrets.
If you love all things Christmas and aren't afraid of a little horror, check out the blurb below and see if it sounds like your kind of horror read.
From USA Today Bestseller L.A. Detwiler comes a disturbing paranormal horror novel that will bring hell to the holidays and chilling fear to the festivities.
Some Christmas ornaments should be left in the attic. When Candace Mills, 26, heads home for the holidays to visit her mother and ailing grandmother, she's expecting a peaceful, dull Christmas. She has no idea, though, that a single Christmas ornament is about to send her into a whirling chasm of evil.
It starts with the Christmas bell, scratched and worn in one of Grandma Anne's boxes in the attic. Once they put it on the tree, Grandma Anne starts to say terrifying things and act strangely. Candace and her mother assume it's her dementia talking—until they start to have dangerous encounters with a fiendish being.
As the secrets of Anne's past involving her twin sister rise to the surface, the women face sinister horrors from a dark force looking for revenge. Will any of them be able to survive, or will they fall prey to the malevolent secret Grandma Anne is harboring from her past?
