This post continues a series of posts I have done featuring recipes from characters from my horror novel Maledicus: Investigative Paranormal Society Book I.

I believe that Maledicus is far more than a horror story, it is in fact, a story of good vs. evil and the brave humans who are ready to fight for good, whatever the consequences. It is in fact written in a beautiful literary style with a strong focus on human foibles and strengths. The inner strength of these characters are at the heart of this complex human story.

  2. Potatoes are rarely in my menu, but when they are, that’s pretty much how I like them. And when casting all care to the wind, one may as well add a nice reduction sauce or gravy. I too avoid horror stories – I lived one too long to return willingly, however I adore historical novels. I’m intrigued.
