“This story was a beautiful, artistic, heartbreaking merging of story and feeling through a creative use of metaphor. I still have chills.”

~Kristen Mae, Red Water

 

 

From the Back Cover:

 
Be brave, little girl. Daddy’s here. 
 

As far as thirteen-year-old Katie is concerned, her world might as well revolve around her father. But lately, things have been strange on their North Dakota ranch. It’s not like Daddy to miss a private joke or forget to read a bedtime story to baby Jack. And the cattle are acting funny, too. Just last night, they woke Katie up with their bellowing. Or maybe that was part of her nightmare, the one with the brilliantly purple sky.

But dream or no, Katie is sure something’s wrong. She can feel it between her shoulder blades, like a pair of clammy flingers climbing up her spine. Nevertheless, she has faith that she and Daddy can fix it. There’s never been a problem they couldn’t solve, as long as they had each other. 

But Katie’s about to find out that some things are too horrifying to understand, let alone fix. 

It’s a brave new world out there. 

And in this world, bravery can’t save you.

FREE SHORT STORY

GET CRIMSON SNOW HERE

“A gripping ride into frozen insanity. Readers cannot go wrong with this visceral introduction to O’Flynn’s writing.”~Andra Watkins, bestselling author of Not Without My Father

“Insanely evocative writing! I’m a huge fan of short stories and this one is layered, twisted in all the best ways, and expertly written. This sucked me in and I haven’t been able to get it out of my head.” ~Beth Teliho, Order of Seven

“O’Flynn created an apocalyptic and barren landscape and took us on a twisting ride. I seriously had to pull the covers up tighter because her powerful words had me cold and scared and wondering who I could trust. This is the kind of story I could see on a show like Twilight Zone.” ~Jennifer Dyer, The Donor

From the back cover:

Green Valley was once known for its fertile farming, picturesque mountains, and abundant wildlife. Now snow and ice cover all but the tallest homes. The only sounds are Maverick’s boots clumping through the snowdrifts and the frigid wind hissing down the mountain. Even the beasts in the woods have gone utterly silent.

But the path forward is clear, especially for one emboldened by optimism. So Maverick keeps moving, trudging through the abandoned town toward the desolate tundra beyond the forest, marring the snow with his bloody footprints.

To leave is a risk. To stay might be suicide.

Either way, no one leaves these mountains alive.

Intrigued? You know you are.

Repressed: Not All Monsters Wear Masks

GET REPRESSED HERE 

What readers are saying about Repressed

“Chilling, suspenseful, and impossible to put down.”
~Kristen Mae, Beyond the Break

"WOW! What a book! (O'Flynn has) amazing ability to captivate an audience and spin a tale." ~Alyson Herzig, The Shitastrophy

"Darkest book yet. Twisted...realistic and haunting." ~Nicole Knepper, Moms Who Drink and Swear

Repressed is O'Flynn's latest and most chilling installment in the Ash Park series. You'd better glue your eyelids open before you start reading because you won't want to look away.” ~Mary Widdicks, A Mutual Addiction

From the back cover: 

No matter where you go, your past follows. 

For once in his life, Curtis Morrison has it good. 

A newly-married detective on the Ash Park police force, Morrison spends his days working to heal the ails of society to make up for his own checkered past. But though he’s come a long way from a life of deadly, bloody secrets he can’t fully recall, not even his wife and baby daughter can silence the old addiction still rattling around in his brain. 

And he’s about to learn that a history like his is not the kind you can escape from.

When his wife and child go missing, Morrison finds himself dragged into a nightmare game controlled by a sadistic monster hell-bent on making him pay for sins he’s repressed for nearly twenty years. Whoever took his wife isn’t after her—they want Morrison to suffer. And with each day that passes, his family’s situation grows more dire. 

Now Morrison must explore a past he’d hoped he’d left behind to save the people he loves, awakening the beast he’s tried so hard to forget. What he uncovers is far worse than he imagined, every clue dragging him away from the life he’s painstakingly built and back to a place he’d very nearly succumbed. 

The clock’s ticking. And this time, he might not make it out alive.

Conviction runs deep. Courage runs deeper.

GET CONVICTION HERE

What readers are saying about Conviction

"A white-knuckled thrill ride from first page to last." ~Andra Watkins, NYT bestselling author of Not Without My Father

“(Conviction) is an intense and suspenseful murder mystery. It captured me from the first chapter and held me enthralled until the final page.”~Susan Sewell, Reader’s Favorite

"Addictive and consuming, O'Flynn will have you chewing your nails off until the very end." ~Kristen Mae, Beyond the Break

"Conviction will have you jumping at shadows and leave you hungry for more." ~Mary Widdicks, The Mermaid Asylum

From the back cover:

Conviction means nothing when you’re dead wrong. 

Shannon Taylor takes no prisoners—save the ones she tosses into lockup. Between convicting criminals as an Ash Park district attorney, dealing with her jerk ex-husband (who also happens to be her boss), and caring for her dying brother, Shannon is already stretched thin. So she’s less than thrilled when new evidence from a closed case emerges—evidence suggesting she threw a young mother in jail for a murder she didn’t commit. 

Shannon knows the girl is hiding something. But whatever the secret, it is even more compelling than the hope of freedom—the girl won’t talk.

When Shannon becomes the target of a series of cryptic and bloody warnings, she must find a way to protect everyone she holds dear. Will her persistence free an innocent woman? Or will her pursuit of the truth turn her family into helpless targets in a madman’s game? 

Conviction runs deep. Courage runs deeper. And nothing in Ash Park is as it seems.

FAMISHED: Everyone's hungry for something. Some are more famished than others.

GET FAMISHED HERE

What readers are saying about Famished:

"Thrilling, emotional, and depraved, with twists and turns you don't see coming."  ~Kristen Mae, Beyond The Break

"Fearless, smart writing and a plot that will stick with you."  ~Beth Teliho, Order of Seven

"Famished is delightfully twisted and dark and emotionally difficult and fantastic. If you like a brilliant Stephen King style mind f*ck of a story, this book is for you."  -Nicole Knepper, Moms Who Drink and Swear

"Smart and suspenseful and completely twisted, full of multi-dimensional characters who aren't always on the right side of good--but you love them anyway. Or love to hate them." ~Mary Widdicks, The Mermaid Asylum

From the back cover: 

Starvation Takes Many Forms

Ash Park, a run-down suburb of Detroit, might not be the most idyllic place to live, but for Hannah Montgomery, it’s safe. At least, it feels that way until a serial killer starts dicing up women from the shelter where she volunteers. 

Despite the ever-present tingling at the nape of her neck, Hannah manages to convince herself that the killings have nothing to do with her brutal past—until her boyfriend is murdered in the same ruthless manner as the others. It doesn’t help that the police think she might have done it.

But the cops are right about one thing: Hannah is responsible. Because she knows who the killer is. Now she must face the fact that she brought a monster with her to Ash Park—and his appetite for blood is insatiable.

Everyone's hungry for something. 

Some are more famished than others.
