The End in All Beginnings

JohnFDTaff_TheEndinAllBeginingsDeath is coming for you.

From the moment you took your first breath, he was there, counting down. He’s followed you through life, hiding inside your experiences, biding his time until the day you draw that last card.

Prepare to embark upon your final, terrifying journey. It’s a disturbing trip through the ages in five novellas exploring the painful horrors of life, love and loss. Unlimited by the boundaries of time or space, Death will always be with you. Stealing all you hold dear, breaking the heart in your chest, leaving you with the only thing left–your memories.

All that you are, or ever have been, are now only the ghosts of days gone by that for the only gift you can still give them–your remembrance.

And they will do everything in their power to get what they want.

Death never lets you forget.

Available on Amazon!


 The Bell Witch

JohnFDTaff_TheBellWitchThe Bell Witch by John F.D. Taff is an historical horror novel/ghost story based on what is perhaps the most well-documented poltergeist case to occur in the United States. It tells the story of the Bells, an early 19th-century Tennessee farm family who begin to notice strange occurrences—odd noises, bangings, gurglings. Eventually, an entity reveals itself to the family, calling itself, simply, the Witch, and makes it clear from the outset that it was sent to kill the patriarch of the family, John Bell, for a reason it never makes quite clear.

The Witch’s antics, while not exactly endearing it to the Bells, make the spirit somewhat of a novelty. Word of its existence spreads, first through the Bell’s slaves, then through the rest of the community. It tells jokes, makes predictions, offers unwanted advice and even sings. It shows an intimate knowledge of The Bible and of history and politics.

It harasses those who annoy it most, saving its ire for John Bell and his teenage daughter, Betsy. These two people become the focus of the apparition’s attacks, both verbal and physical. Ultimately, the Witch fulfills its promise of killing John Bell, while also forcing Betsy and her mother, Lucy, into considering their own roles in what created the spirit.

The Bell Witch is, at once, a historical novel, a ghost story, a horror story and a love story all rolled into one.

Available on Amazon!
