Due to the murder of my family and the resulting court cases, police investigations, and FBI investigations, I no longer have time to daily update this website.
Likewise ALL novel, short story, and article writing projects are on hiatus.
All book releases, book signings, workshops, and convention appearances for 2015 (and unknown amount of time after) are on hold while the murder investigation of my family is ongoing.
Writing advice for the worldbuilding, character creation, and other writing how to articles are on hold.
From now on, the bulk of updates here will be about the investigation into the murder of my family.
No, NOT just THIS author website, not JUST the EelKat pename, not just self published books: ALL 15 (fifteen) of my penames are on hiatus, that includes traditional published books as well, newspaper reporting jobs, editing jobs, my work for Harlequin Romance Novels, my work for Disney... EVERYTHING is on hiatus. Every publishing house I work for, every series I write, every penname I write under: they are ALL on hiatus, ALL projects.
There is NOTHING being published under ANY penname, not for ANY series, not for ANY publisher, from 2015 onward. EVERYTHING is on hold due to the murder of my family. I do not know when or even if, any of the projects will be restarted or finished.
Yes, BOTH the magazines I owned are indefinitely shut down because of this as well, with no plans for either magazine to return. The publishing house I own is also closed to submissions from now on, we will no longer be publishing anything. It is unlikely we will reopen the publishing house either.
All book signing tours, workshops, letures, PAX events, ComicCon events, carnival/festival/state fair/car show events are also canceled. I will not be attending ANY of them. If a venue still has my name listed as a guest/speaker/etc it is because they've not yet removed it. I WILL NOT be there, no matter where it is!
EVERYTHING, EVERYWHERE, IS CANCELED!
The ONLY thing continuing from this point on, is THIS website, where I'll post updates on the murder investigation, hopefully every week, but, you know how it is when 10 members of your family are beheaded, it's kind of difficult to have a schedule for anything anymore.
It's been 7 years since we've added any new products to The World's Most Haunted Car Merchandise Line. The first products were introduced in August 2004. We stopped added to the collection in May 2010 after the car was vandalized by religion crazed demon hunters who thought they could kill a demon by killing the car. *sigh*
Fans of the car have been asking when and if we'd be adding new products to the line and at long last your wait is over. There are now 200+ new products in the line. I'll be adding as many of them as possible to this page over the next few weeks. (Today is May 24, 2017).
This page is the partial catalogue of products featuring The Goldeneagle aka the real life haunted car that inspired Stephen King's "Christine", "Trucks", "Maximum Overdrive", and "From Buick 8".
The Goldeneagle is a 1964 Dodge 330 (Built on a Coronet B-Body) 25 Anniversary Special Limited Edition (only 5,000 made, fewer then 300 known to still exist), 4-door, Slant 6, Push Button Automatic, former Old Orchard Beach Police Car, owned by Old Orchard Beach author Wendy C Allen aka EelKat since 1983.
We've traced the VIN of this and it was one of the first run productions, one of the first 30 produced in September 1963, before the official 1964 production started.
