Winner Best Horror Screenplay – Nova Fest ’21

A man, haunted by a family curse, is taken beyond his sanity limits to a realm where he has no control over his actions or fear. James Adams lived a run-of-the-mill everyday life in a New York suburb before the demons dwelling within him awoke from their slumber to reveal unspeakable horror and prophesize his future destiny.

Crescendo is a novel about fate and the lengths we will travel to avoid the inevitable. Set in tranquil Rockland County, New York, this tale of suspense and horror will take its reader on an emotional roller coaster of anger, anxiety, compassion, and indelible fear.

“There’s a wicked atmosphere which grows page after page right until the end…”

“…at times [Crescendo] actually made me shiver.”
Danielle Naibert, editor of Horror Haven

“A chilling debut and a must-read for lovers of Horror and Mystery.”
— C. Highsmith-Hooks, author of The Soul of a Black Woman
