I recently asked a Facebook pal of mine, Donald White, to contribute to Showcase. I have read two of his stories now and think he is a very good writer and one to watch for. He writes Horror and Fantasy - while I prefer the Horror generally, Vengeance and Valor was one of the few Fantasy stories I really enjoyed. SO without further ado, here he is.

My name is Donald White. I have been writing for over two decades now: mainly horror, fantasy and some drama. Writing is the ultimate form of expression. I am able to bring things to life on the page, like a modern day Doctor Frankenstein.

Recently, I have delved into the world of publishing. My tales appear in magazines, online, and will be in two future anthologies. I also have a few ebooks available. Creating a work is only the beginning; publishing and promoting it are beasts of their own. But I thrive on challenge, and my desire is unquenchable.

The future is unknown, but my intentions are clear. I am putting together an anthology of short stories which I hope to have available in the coming year. I have longer works, which I intend to publish. And there are even a few novels that I am preparing to release.

“Lady Killer” is a tale of foul murder frustrated by forces beyond the mortal ken. Rick Smith is a killer, who has chosen his next victim: Lisa Montgomery. But all is not as it seems, and Rick will soon learn the insatiable appetite of a true predator.

“The Face in the Mirror” is a short story of a ghostly seduction which drives a man to madness. David is a struggling writer, struggling to write erotica. But in the darkness of his room one night, a vision of beauty appears behind him in the mirror. Her name is Melanie and with her appearance comes a series of changes in David's life. But who is she? And why can she only be seen in the mirror? Is she a lover, or a dangerous apparition? Stare into the glass, and you will see the truth standing right behind you.

“The Hound”: Linda Greywood feels persecuted by everyone and everything around her. But a real monstrosity is stalking her now, in the form of an infernal beast! Oppressed, her mind begins to unravel and she will take matters into her own hands. Run as fast as you can, but you will never escape The Hound.

“Vengeance and Valor” is a gritty tale of battle between elf and man, in which the bravery is uncommon and the heroes unexpected. Seven men await their fate in the depths of a cave. Slanted green eyes menace them from outer darkness. The stage is set for a final confrontation. Who will stand and who will fall? 

Bio: Donald White grew up on the coast of North Carolina with his mother and father, an older and a younger sister. He has a degree in Information Systems, having graduated with honors. Later, he moved to Durham and is now employed at a software company in Raleigh. He is an avid reader of classical and modern literature. But even more, he loves to write and has created over two dozen original works in various genres.
