Young Adult Novels
Trey Collins is your typical nerdy, kind of dorky, teenager. Trey has trouble talking to girls and problems with bullies.
The girl he loves doesn’t know he exists, and the BBOC (Big Bully On Campus) takes particular delight in tormenting him.
Trey is different from the average, normal, teen in one way: he is obsessed with vampires. He would like nothing better than to be a vampire.
On Halloween night, Trey learns the meaning of the old adage: Be careful what you wish for!
Set on the campus of Cumber Academy, an all-boys prep school in New England that is about to go co-ed, Guardians is a tale about the ultimate temptation: immortality, and a young man’s quest to be more than he’s ever been before.
Candy Stripes is the first young adult/teen thriller by renowned horror writer, R. Patrick Gates, to see publication in the U.S. Author of such classics as Grimm Memorials,
Grimm Reapings, and Tunnelvision,

the power fails, trapping her there.
When a madman mistakes Sally for someone else, she must use all of her wits to survive. Candy Stripes is a page-turner that will not disappoint.

The story of a young boy, his stepsister and her friends who must battle an ancient evil under Mystery Hill--a strange place of ancient ruins inspired by America's Stonehenge in Salem, New Hampshire.
When Jennifer Day, her stepbrother, Kevin, and their recently married parents move to a new town and a new home nestled against Mystery Hill, little do they realize the entire town is riddled with tunnels leading to, and from, massive caverns under Mystery Hill . . . caverns that have not been disturbed for centuries until a scientist, Dr. Fassbinder, started excavating the ruins, blasting through man-made rock walls thousands of years old. Now something moves freely beneath the town, through the cellars of the houses. Something that is lonely . . . and very, very hungry.
