The fact that it comes from Madeleine Holly-Rosing, creative mind behind the wildly entertaining Boston Metaphysical Society series, was just icing on the cake.

Chasing Sunshine, written and directed by Darren Coyle, focuses on Darcy and Jack, two residents of the SFV who band together to solve a mystery and find themselves on a wacky adventure that will change their lives going forward.

Shadow Roads is a sequel series to The Sixth Gun. I’ve had the pleasure of reading the first collection. It was an absolute blast bringing together the old West and the undead into a rollicking affair of shoot-outs, magical weapons, and demons bent on domination.
