Praise for S.C. Barrus:

“[S.C. Barrus] does an amazing job with character development and description, with a writing style that reminds me of Edgar Allan Poe. And though this is a dark story, it has a sense of nostalgia and humor to it, set in an era that gives off a noir flare.” -Alexandra Lanc via

Barrus could realistically have a national seller on his hands…” -W. Dibble via
