My name is Dave Dykema. I work at a TV station in Ohio directing newscasts. I also try to get in a bit of writing when I have the time.

Fiction is my love, but I've also had success publishing reviews and articles. I like to write what I consider horrific thrillers, meaning they can be classified as horror/suspense/thriller tales, but have no supernatural elements.

STALKER is my first novel. The basic premise came to me when I was a student at Michigan State University and I realized I could get very close to people on campus without them seeming to notice. I remember I partook in one night of stalking "practice" to see if the idea was feasible, and then began writing.

Here's the product description:

Dan Freeman loves horror movies. After seeing the movie "Stalker," he gets very enthusiastic about it, emulating the title character and following innocent people around for fun and thrills. He wants to see how close he can get without getting caught. Close enough to eavesdrop on their cell phone conversations? Close enough to smell perfume? Close enough to touch?

Dan suspects his girlfriend of cheating on him. One night, while following her using his newfound skills, Dan finds out an awful truth.

Now the stalker becomes the stalked.


The sequel to STALKER is PHOBIA. Here's its description:

It's been a year since the events of STALKER. TV station WKBC hires Jerry Stevens to produce a freelance retrospective on the case. He flies to Hollywood, gathers the cast and crew of the movie "Stalker" together, and goes about conducting interviews. But someone has a different kind of reunion in mind--one that deals with another of director Brett Hanson's movies: "Phobia." Playing the part of the killer, a masked figure recreates moments drawn from the film, slaughtering individuals based on their specific fears.

Reviews are most welcome.

For 80 cents, I'll give it a try as it sounds interesting. But I probably won't get to it for awhile as I'm the middle of a long-ish scifi series that I won't finish for another week or so and I'm one of those weirdos that hates skipping around. :D

Welcome to KB and thanks for letting us know about your book!

Thanks for the kind welcomes. I saw that the moderator added a link to my book, so I thank him/her for that. I've since added one to my signature and I'm curious to see if it works...

I got it last night - who could resist for 80 cents? - and I'm really enjoying it so far. The main character reminds me of one of my friends - minus the creepy stalking obsession, of course. :p

Welcome to KindleBoards, Dave. I went ahead and downloaded your book. It may be a while before I actually get around to reading it, since my TBR list is pretty long right now, but it sounds very interesting to me!

I finished Stalker last night. Wow, what a page-turner! For 80 cents, you're really getting your money's worth - but this is great stuff at any price. I highly recommend it to everyone.

Thanks CS! That's quite a recommendation. Are you sure we aren't related?

(No, we're not).

It's just nice to hear an unbiased review. Glad you enjoyed it.

Sorry to bump this, but at least I let it slip to the 5th page before I did it. ::)

I also want to let you know that "Wrong Number" is almost ready and should be up on Amazon by the end of next week.

I understand as authors we're allowed to bump our book threads once a week.

Well, heck, it's been over 4 months since there's been a bump on this, so here it is.

Also, the version on Amazon Kindle now is an edited (cleaned-up) version. If you already bought the original and would like the newer version, you can email me at [email protected]
