Door County Author Releases First Novel ‘Sarah’s Cross’

Dean M. King weaves a tale of innocent life interrupted, family tragedy and the kindness of a stranger who balks at the horrific darkness that surrounds in his vivid debut novel, Sarah’s Cross, set in Wisconsin’s Northwoods.

Tommy Ryan wasn’t prepared to meet a ghost, yet there she was, waiting anxiously at the edge of the forest and eager for his help. Bound to the place where she had died, the ghost, Sarah, is unwilling to move on until Tommy helps her reconnect with her mother and solve the mystery of what happened to her father – a soldier who went missing during WWII. But time is running out for Sarah. She’s delayed her departure for too long, and now a dark, brooding presence is intent on ushering her – and anyone who gets in the way – into a place of utter desolation. Sarah’s Cross was released Feb. 28. King lives with his wife, Kelly, and their son in Door County. He’s a member of the Horror Writers Association and the Great Lakes Association of Horror Writers.
