If You Like VAMPIRE, You'll Love Sullivan's New Book KENTUCKY BLOODBATH Released June 2
A city under siege, held captive while a psychopathic vampire serial killer instilled fear in its residents, taunted the authorities, and brutally killed his victims.
This book is a chilling and stomach-churning look into the life of a twisted, sick man so evil one would wonder if he was even human. From his early days when he would liquify rabbits in a blender to drink its intestines and blood, to mutilating his victims, his thirst for blood could not be satiated.
This is the story of Richard Trenton Chase, the Vampire of Sacramento. It is not for the faint of hearts.
REVISED - 11/15/14!
Biographie de l'auteur
My journey with the written word began very early in life. The first book I read (from cover to cover, mind you) was Charles Franklin’s, The World’s Worst Murderers, published in 1965. Being only ten, it wasn’t the kind of book that should have interested me, but it did. And despite having to stop occasionally to ask my mother the meaning of a particular word or two, within two weeks, I closed the book with a distinct sense of regret. A little later, my interests broadened, from true crime to history – especially that part of history pertaining to armed conflict- but I never lost sight of true crime, and I found myself returning to it over and over again. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that one day I’d be writing books about these very interesting and egregious life events. All that would come later. After spending many years in the ministry, I published my first book at the age of 40, Shattering the Myth: Signposts on Custer’s Road to Disaster, a personality study of George Armstrong Custer. But it was my next book that would place me on a firm foundation in the genre of true crime, when in 2009, my book, The Bundy Murders: A Comprehensive History was published by McFarland & Company. In turn, this led to numerous radio programs and contacts from documentarians, and portions of this work also appear in the college textbook, Abnormal Psychology: Clinical Perspectives on Psychological Disorders, published by McGraw-Hill in November 2012. I’ve also spent time in the trenches of the investigative journalist, unearthing long-ago forgotten – but very important - homicide cases, some of which were published in Snitch, a weekly print newspaper where I was a contributing writer. Some of you may remember the online site In Cold Blog, and my work has appeared there as well. In all, I’m the author of nine books. And now, writing for WildBlue Press, I’ve got a number of tomes lined up that I know you’re going to enjoy. My first one out the door will be a reissuing of my book, Vampire: The Richard Chase Murders, with Kentucky Bloodbath, a collection of bizarre homicides, soon to follow. And coming in 2015, you won’t want to miss my next biography, as it’s a tantalizing tale of long range murder, tentatively titled, The Sniper.
