Author Biography

The supernatural has always had the allure of forbidden fruit, ever since my mother refused to allow me to watch creature features on late night TV as a boy. She caved-in. (Well, not literally!)
As a child, fresh snow provided me the opportunity to walk out onto neighbor’s lawns halfway and make paw prints with my fingers as far as I could stretch. I would retrace the paw and boot prints, then fetch the neighbor kids and point out that someone turned into a werewolf on their front lawn! (They were skeptical.)
I have pursued many interests over the years, but the supernatural always called to me. You could say that I was haunted. Finally, following the siren’s call, I wrote The Eidola Project, based on a germ of an idea I had as a teenager.
Ultimately, I hope my book gives you the creeps, and I mean that in the best way possible!
(Book two should be out shortly. It involves a werewolf and is titled Moonlight Becomes You.)

In 1885, a team of paranormal investigators endeavors to rid an estate of its ghosts, only to discover there is something more sinister lurking in the shadows in the blood-chilling supernatural novel, The Eidola Project (An Eidola Project Novel) by Robert Herold. Lenore has the unsettling problem of multiple ghosts haunting her Nantucket Island manor. Contacting Professor William James, head of the Eidola Project, Lenore requests his help in removing her phantom intruders. Excited by the opportunity, Professor James immediately dispatches his team to investigate Lenore's home. Upon their arrival, the team's medium, Sarah, holds a seance to initiate contact with the spiritual occupants of the residence. Once Sarah goes into a trance, she is overwhelmed by the powerful energies within the home and collapses. Aware something far more sinister than ordinary ghosts is haunting the manor, Sarah warns her colleagues. However, failing to grasp the enormity of the horror waiting to devour them, they ignore her cautions and continue with the project. Can the team escape the clutches of the monster thirsting for their blood? Or will they join the ranks of the many slain before them?
