Because the right words are better than a 1,000 pictures…

“Excellent story. The tale is very well constructed, well written and scary but not in the typical gory way. Kept me very entertained, I savored each and every word.”
Steven Grant on “Purgatory Road

“WOW! This author has natural ability. I found myself wanting to read the next installment to follow the development of the main character after his death and the storyline that’s coming next. Dave Burnham does a great job in pulling you into the story with his in-depth descriptions. Excellent Job!”
Maria McIntosh on “The Road To Hell

“A very well written horror and mystery story from a talented author. This is the second story by the author that I’ve read and he definitely has a gift for words. The story is spooky as hell. Fans of Christmas horror stories will love it. Recommended!”
Katherine Burke on “He’s Making A List

“Love and recommend this. The writing is superb. It offers readers a chance to see the world through the eyes of Jacob Morrison. The description of events leading to Jacob’s death is magical. You will not regret reading and following this story. I look forward to more from Dave Burnham and the Haunted Pen.”
Michael Penn on “The Road To Hell

I don’t always listen to music when I write,
but when I do, it’s Motörhead.
