ABOUT THE BOOK
A former priest and demon hunter, Father Gunter is a demon's worst nightmare. But even he will need help to destroy the demons that threaten the small farming community of Bucktown. When he sees a news broadcast about tragic events taking place in the town, he realizes he has work to do.
Along the way, help arrives - but from an unexpected source. Will it be enough to see the demon hunter through the final showdown with evil?
The first book in this series, THE BUCKTOWN BABIES by Janine R. Pestel is a quirky, compelling, and at times, horrifying tale of good versus evil.
When Johann sees a news programme detailing the shocking sudden deaths of infants and unborn babies in the small town of Bucktown, he immediately senses that this is so much more than a tragic accident. He trusts his instinct that a demon is involved and is ready to take action. An ex-priest, Johann is prepared to face down this evil while always on the lookout for his sister who is missing. But when he gets to Bucktown he is going to need help if he is to have any chance at destroying this creature, and as often happens, help comes from the strangest of places ...
THE BUCKTOWN BABIES by Janine R. Pestel immediately throws you into a terrifying plot when you realise that something is murdering babies, and this terror and emotion will certainly resurface throughout as you read this book. But don't get me wrong, this isn't some horror-laden screamfest but rather a developed and well thought-out story of family, goodness, and how far you will go to protect the innocent and do what is right. I liked the character of Johann and look forward to reading more from this series. If you like demons, demon-hunters, and characters with some grit, then this is the story for you.
Born in Coledale, PA and raised in NJ. Lived in NYC for about 7 years. Met my husband in 1978 and married in 1985. Have been happily married ever since! Now, we live in beautiful Mesa AZ. Author of "The Bucktown Babies", "The Mons Connection" and "Infected and Other Short Stories" as well as short stories in the SciFi / Occult / Horror genre(s) and an upcoming paranormal / occult series.
I was always interested in science fiction, action adventure and comedy. Tried my hand at writing a book back in the 1970's but did not have the direction I needed in order to complete it. The story was going along great until one day while I was sitting at my typewriter (remember those?) and the thought suddenly struck me that I had no idea where I was going with the story or how it was going to end. Now, many years later, I do have the drive and direction to write a complete book. My only regret is that it took me this long.
A lot of my ideas come from "What if?" For example, "What if there were a mountain on another planet that wasn't exactly a mountain?" or "What if we could reanimate corpses and have them perform menial tasks?" The whole world is full of "What if?" we just have to explore it.
My favorite color is blue. I just love blue. Being from NJ, of course, my favorite food is a good, NY style pizza. Not much of a "ball sport" fan, but I love motor racing. Doesn't matter if it's cars, motorcycles or boats. I'm also a big nature and animal lover. My husband (who also writes, by the way), and I currently have 3 dogs and 1 cat. Love them all.
