enoch.jpgCan a ghost haunt more than your home? Can a Bigfoot track more than footprints?

Aubrey Taylor’s cozy life in the subdued, Appalachian town of Lake Julian had never been exceptional. Shouldered by his lifelong friends, Buzz Reiselstein and Rodriqa Auerbach, he quietly endured the thrashings of a persistent pack of pesky bullies, which included the most-feared kid in school, Magnos Strumgarten, and his own obnoxiously, well-accomplished brother, Gaetan. Comfortable in his humdrum niche of the absolutely average, Aubrey never pushed back…

…until fate dug a little too deep, and the unseen darkness of unspoken places stole his mediocrity.

When spurious specters and elusive mountain men battle for a tomb of Watchers, buried in ages past, only those who choose to search beyond the surface feel the grip of the ancients’ revenge. Unusual disappearances, a colorful cadre of insightful townsfolk and a whirlwind of blunders and mishaps exposes the struggling forces that transform Aubrey and his friends into more than spectators amidst the oldest war of all.

Prepare yourself to see the unseen as you've never seen it before.

Featured Book - Green Pearl Odyssey by Reilly Ridgell


The story, set in the mid-1980s, follows a former Peace Corps Volunteer who witnesses his wife and drug-dealing brother gunned down on the street in Santa Monica.

Even though he knows and believes it to be wrong, he takes revenge.  After meticulous planning and a strategic delay, he kills their murderer who happens to be the son of a major crime lord.  Scott then runs to the islands of Micronesia, where he had lived as a Peace Corps Volunteer, to avoid the mobster's hired killers and to come to grips with his own immoral act of murder.  The culture and geography of the islands become the backdrop for his flight as he tries to stay one step ahead of his pursuers and deal with his own guilt at the same time.  He is almost run down on the long, skinny island of Majuro while returning by a borrowed motorcycle along the deserted road from the beach at Laura Village.  He is lulled into a false sense of security on lush Pohnpei, staying with his deceased wife's relatives while tasting the delights that island offered including the mouth-numbing sakau (kava).  He then barely escapes an attempted hit when he is chased into the mysterious Nan Madol ruins.  He hides out in the isolation of the Mortlocks, tiny atoll islands reachable only by ship, thus returning to a lifestyle he had lived while a Peace Corps Volunteer.  Eventually he takes a government ship to Truk, where he is almost killed again while diving on the shipwrecks of the Turk Lagoon.  He jumps on another boat for Puluwat, where he had been a Peace Corps Volunteer, thus returning to his memories from a decade earlier.  Most of the people like and help him, but the island's American priest does not.  Scott leaves by sailing canoe captained by one of Puluwat's master navigators, making it to the tiny turtle island of Pik.  He thus  escapes yet another attempt to kill him via a sea plane and more hired killers.  The Puluwat people trick the killers and end up killing most of them.  Meanwhile Scott catches a ride with Satawalese sailing canoes conveniently at Pik, gets to Satawal, then gets a ship to Yap.  Reaching Yap, he admires the stone money of that proud island, and catches a plane for Guam.

Back in an Americanized lifestyle, Scott still is unable to align his morals with his actions.  But he arranges to have a face to face showdown with the mob boss, deciding to end his odyssey one way or the other.
