About the Book

Original Publication Date: January 01, 2007

Setting: Modern New Orleans

This was originally done as a special thank you to readers for all the great years and was available only as a digital download. It’s a small story about Nick’s homecoming to New Orleans after his mother’s death and after Katrina.

The story will be in print for the first time in the anthology Dark Bites that contains all of Sherri’s novellas that she’s written for St. Martin’s.

You can also purchase the audiobook for .99 here http://us.macmillan.com/fearthedarkness

The Hero: Nick (Squire)

I'm what most people call poor white trash. My father was a career felon, my mother a stripper. I grew up in the back rooms of the strip club where she worked, helping the bouncers hustle clients.

The Story Behind The Story

After Hurricane Katrina hit, Sherri's fans turned out in droves to donate to victims. Many of them made donations to the Red Cross in the name of Nick Gautier who takes his last name from Gautier, MS which was in the path of the hurricane too.

Sherri and her family sent boxes of toys, clothes, books food, and money to help out during the aftermath of Katrina. Since then, she continues to donate and sent boxes of autographed books to the New Orleans libraries.

New Orleans and Southern Mississippi continue to recover from the storm.
