About The Book
A black speedboat arrives at the small island community of Stone Harbor. Its mysterious passenger, Joey Oates, inspires terror by his very presence. He’s Satan incarnate, back to complete a ritual left unfinished three hundred years ago. A lost talisman called the Portal can open a doorway for the demons of Hell to enter our world. Oates plans to find the Portal, and finish unlocking it.
Former lovers Scott Tackett, family hardware store owner, and Allie Layton, flamed-out Hollywood actress, are about to reconnect after years apart, until they discover the evil growing in town. Only they can stop Oates’s awful plan and save the world from the living nightmares standing ready to crawl out of Hell.

Raves and Reviews
"This book is one that will have you on the edge of your seat [..]. Five stars for a read that had me up all night and watching comedy movies for a few days after."
“Well, this book is almost the ultimate in good versus evil. The characters are exquisitely drawn, and you cannot stop cheering them on in their mission.”
– Beyond the Books
“I Would describe The Portal as action packed, DARK and Violent. As well as sinister, upsetting and shocking. It needs to be read with the lights on.”
– One More Word
If you are looking for a creepy book which takes an in depth look at good versus evil and how even good people sometimes are led to do bad things, then definitely pick up The Portal.”
