The Cabin Sessions is a confronting, hard-hitting dark psychological thriller, told with an acid wit. Themes of domestic and child abuse are explored through minds distorted by fear, and corrupted by hatred and delusion. A tale where redemption is gained in unexpected ways.

It's Christmas Eve when hapless musician Adam Banks stands on the bridge over the river that cleaves the isolated village of Burton. A storm is rolling into the narrow mountain pass. He thinks of turning back. Instead, he resolves to fulfil his obligation to perform the guest spot at The Cabin Sessions. He should be looking forward to it, but fear stirs when he opens the door on the Cabin's incense-choked air.

The moment he arrives he's confronted with an awful revelation, proprietor Delilah Makepeace announcing that his mentor and the evening's host has unexpectedly died. Worse, the replacement is Adam's former partner turned nemesis, oily frontman, Juan Diaz. 

Adam's neighbour and local plumber, the immaculate Philip Stone is already there, brooding. He's had to attend to Delilah's leaky sink. He observes with a ruthless eye the other regulars, from sleazy barmaid Hannah Fisher, to old crone Cynthia Morgan.

In a parallel narrative, Philip's sister, Eva, prepares to take a bath. It's a ritual. She's a breath holder. At twenty-eight she's returned to Burton to finish the business of her past; business she must attend to, if only she could make sense of it. Memories begin to surface concerning the innocence of her brother.


Only through dark poetry can a tragedy become something truly beautiful.

  "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder." This phrase has origins dating back to ancient Greece, circa 300 BC; proving that some humans have always had the ability to see beauty where others could not.

  Beautiful Tragedies is a compilation of 140 works by no less than fifty-five amazing poets writing in a variety of forms--all inspired by feelings born in the darkest of times. 

They express the pain associated with unrequited or all-consuming love gone wrong, as well as where the resulting emotions can take us. Readers will get in touch with the darkness lurking inside all of us—the ugly part of us—where we can consider the unthinkable, stemming from the madness gripping our minds.




Born some place in the upper Midwest, America. 


His sperm donor split, never to be seen again. 


Whilst his struggling drug addict mom, she did her best.


Growing up in a biker bar with vagrants and the dissolute. In his words, “Realistic people from Planet Earth!” His writing is life, turned into fiction, protecting the guilty. After tragedy, destruction and death, he traveled the nation searching the madness for resolution. In his words, “No matter where you go, it’s always there, lurking in the darkness.” Its sole intent, to ridicule, break and kill! Feasting like a parasite inside a dismembered soul. Delighting in its jollification upon your own obscurity. Falling off the bar stool titled, no hope. Sleeping on a nameless street curb! A place to define the true merit of flesh. When evil comes foe an easy kill. That last stand! Succomb to an alleged fate or rise up, taking hold of something unseen, for even in nothing, we still have a fighting chance. 

Life is an alluring mask, a mask of fascination. It’s not about me, it’s about the stories. The message! Having many masks. Each of my tales being a mask unto my own persona, unto thine own flesh.


Percy is kinky.

Percy is perverted.

Percy is a loner.

Percy is sneaky… 


...But most of all, Percy wants to be left alone. 


Whether it be a nagging mother or something from his past, it feels like he is always trying to escape something. 

Will he be able to find his own peace, or will the real world catch up to him?

There will be blood.

There will be s**t.

There will be unusual sexual kinks.

But most of all, there will be murder…



Filled with copious amounts of black humor, Gerri R. Gray's first published novel is an offbeat adventure story that could be described as One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest meets Thelma and Louise. 


Flashback to 1974. Farika is a lovely young woman who wakes up one day to find herself a patient in a bizarre New York City psychiatric asylum. She has no idea who she is, and possesses no memories of where she came from nor how she got there. 


Fearing for her life after being attacked by a berserk girl with over one hundred personalities and a vicious nurse with sadistic intentions, the frightened amnesiac teams up with an audacious lesbian with a comically unbalanced mind, and together they attempt a daring escape. 


But little do they know that a long strange journey into an even more insane world filled with a multitude of perilous predicaments and off-kilter individuals is waiting for them on the outside. Farika's weird reality crumbles when she finally discovers who, and what, she really is!



Within this tome lies eighteen tales of mind-bending terror, as Hughes delves into the human psyche and dishes out stories of what becomes of the broken minded, spirited and downright irked. 

Part these blood-drenched pages at your own peril, for you will find diseased minds geared towards revenge and bloody chaos, with a few twists, turns and surprises thrown in for good, fucked-up measures.
