About Along the Watchtower

A Tragic Warrior Lost in Two Worlds…

The war in Iraq ended for Lieutenant Freddie Williams when an IED explosion left his mind and body shattered. Once he was a skilled gamer and expert in virtual warfare. Now he’s a broken warrior, emerging from a medically induced coma to discover he’s inhabiting two separate realities. The first is his waking world of pain, family trials, and remorse—and slow rehabilitation through the tender care of Becky, his physical therapist. The second is a dark fantasy realm of quests, demons, and magic that Freddie enters when he sleeps.

In his dreams he is Frederick, Prince of Stormwind, who must make sense of his horrific visions in order to save his embattled kingdom from the monstrous Horde. His only solace awaits him in the royal gardens, where the gentle words of the beautiful gardener, Rebecca, calm the storms in his soul. While in the conscious world, the severely wounded vet faces a strangely similar and equally perilous mission—a journey along a dark road haunted by demons of guilt and memory—and letting patient, loving Becky into his damaged and shuttered heart may be his only way back from Hell.

About There Comes a Prophet

But what are we without dreams?

A thousand years ago the Darkness came—a terrible time of violence, fear, and social collapse when technology ran rampant. But the vicars of the Temple of Light brought peace, ushering in an era of blessed simplicity. For ten centuries they have kept the madness at bay with “temple magic” and by eliminating forever the rush of progress that nearly caused the destruction of everything.

A restless dreamer, Nathaniel has always lived in the tiny village of Little Pond, longing for something more but unwilling to challenge the unbending status quo. When his friend Thomas returns from the Temple after his “teaching”—the secret coming-of-age ritual that binds young men and women eternally to the Light—Nathaniel can barely recognize the broken and brooding young man the boy has become. And when the beautiful Orah is summoned as well, Nathaniel knows he must somehow save her. But in the prisons of Temple City he discovers a terrible secret that launches the three of them on a journey to find the forbidden keep, placing their lives in dire jeopardy. For a truth awaits them there that threatens the foundation of the Temple. But if they reveal that truth, the words of the book of light might come to pass:

“If there comes among you a prophet saying ‘Let us return to the darkness,’ you shall stone him, because he has sought to thrust you away from the light.”

Information! Authors, Guest Posts, Readers, Reviews, Interviews…


Hey Everyone,

I hope y’all are enjoying the reviews and my one interview so far. I also hope you will take a chance on some of the books I have reviewed and will review. Most of the books I have reviewed so far are by Independent authors, which means they self-publish. They need readers and their books are so worth reading! There are many more reviews coming! Upcoming reviews are Blood Lust Rising by Fayth Devlin, Outside by Shalini Boland, Spoon-Fed Addiction by Silvano Williams, Damphyr Heritage by E.G. Gaddess, Unforgettable Embrace by Joanne Clancy, Chasing Evil’s Shadow by Debby Hellen, Day by Day by Shaun Jeffrey, and literally a whole lot more.

I will also have some guest posts in the near future! I won’t mention any names yet but I am sure it will be exciting (: If you are an author and interested in doing a guest post, subject matter entirely up to you, please contact me here or shoot me an email: cynthiashepp@yahoo.com

I am also interested in doing more author interviews. Authors, if you are interested in that, please contact me by email or on here. I would want to do a review of one of your books before the interview, just to acclimate myself with you and your books.

I am also interested in giveaways. Those would be more geared towards your review or interview.

I am also still taking review requests. They are coming in by the dozens and I love it! Please read my review policy before submitting a review request. Thanks!

I also have a facebook page. I would love for you to stop by and ‘like’ it (:
