About the author:
My dad Edward Mayes and my Uncle Jack fostered my reading curiosity at a very young age. My dad would read the bible for hours every day with an occasional Zane Grey western thrown in and my Uncle Jack read Zane Grey and any other western novel constantly. I was amazed how any one could read for hours almost every day.
I guess my love of reading started when I nine years old. I discovered Jules Verne and read many of his classics. Many times I sat in the classroom with one of his novels hidden behind my text books. To be able to escape to a magical world of the writers imagination had me hooked. I read continuously after that.
H.G. Wells was my next favorite author followed by Walter Farley, Albert Payson Turhune, Jack London, and Stephen King. It would take a while to list all my favorite authors.
Jack London's "Call of the Wild" is one of my favorites to this day.
My fascination with horror and paranormal came from ghost stories from the mountains and my older sisters always scaring us when we were young.
The Last Shaman
D. R. Mayes
In the rugged Appalachia Mountains of eastern Kentucky, a spiritual battle is underway. Not Baptist against Protestant or Catholic against Lutheran but creation against chaos. An evil older than mankind lies undetected from civilization and prying eyes protected by the vast mountains and the superstition of the inhabitants. Smug in the knowledge that modem religion is in turmoil with sex scandals, politics, and betrayal, the evil is virtually unchallenged as their time draws near. The mass populace has lost faith in religion and God but a bloodline and an old mans prophecy are the only obstacle to total victory. At the height of this struggle, four people are drawn together by an unseen hand.
Ray Hayes is a man that abandoned this region, his heritage, and his wife and daughter for a life of recognition, vanity, and corporate acceptance. He is the first player in a life and death battle that has played out many times in these mountains and other remote areas around the globe. Unable to stop the horrific nightmares of demons and his grandfather, he comes back to the place of his birth only to find himself blessed and cursed in a struggle as ancient as the mountains he loathes. Three young girls will forever change his life as they join Ray in the mountains.
One a resident of Montana who calls herself Jet, is a beautiful and charming twenty five year old mother of one with a desire to fulfill her destiny after years of intense training and scholastic achievement.
Another is a twenty one year old Pennsylvania outcast named Annie who is a streetwise reformed heroin addict with a huge debt to repay to the good man that took her off the streets and loved her unconditionally.
Finally, Faith, is a four year old child of the mountains who holds the power of God in her hands.
Four people join forces in a shaky alliance but a secret hidden in the past ties them together forever and nearly destroys them as they come to grips with each other and a heavenly decree. This love hate relationship drives them to battle each other and their spiritual beliefs in an effort to save a four-year-old child from hell itself, the dark angels known as the Watchers.
