Opportunity comes knocking from Like-Minded Individuals, Inc., a global company fulfilling the needs of clients: new identities, security, and even lists of potential “projects.” But let’s not call it “serial killing” (such a nasty term). However, LMI has put a target on Leon’s back and the police, sanctioned hit men, and a vicious psychopath are after Leon. Heads are chopped, dropped, and swapped as Leon fights for his life. But nothing will keep him from finishing his current project. Not even the chance to fall in love.

    ‘A masterful creation of plot, characters and suspense by the talented Stuart West.’ -5 star USA Review Sometimes it’s good to be the king. Leon Garber never wanted to be CEO of any corporation, let alone the one that's been trying to kill him for the past year and a half. That’s why it makes no sense when LMI offers him a job—a chance to take down the corporation from the inside. It's a killer job but somebody has to do it. A job Leon loves a little too much… Sometimes it’s great to be the king! Book #3 of the Killers Incorporated trilogy. Things get apocalyptic.

  5. Ghosts of Gannaway
    'Tension, excellent characterization, suspense, ghostly presences and enough twists and turns to keep you glued to the last page. Exciting horror.' -Horror author Catherine Cavendish. Ghost whispers echo through the mines of Gannaway. They have a story to tell. It’s the story of a town torn apart by greed, pollution and vanity, by racial discord between the Native Americans and the invading miners, by the Great Depression, by the violent union strikes of the 1930’s. That’s not all that brought Gannaway to its knees, though. Not by a long shot. Because something—else—lives in the deserted tunnels of the mine, something dark and evil. Something that breathes life into the Ghosts of Gannaway.
  6. Chili Run
    'No one can write a better comedy/thriller than Stuart R. West.' -L.X. Cain, author of Bloodwalker and Soul Cutter.

Being in high school sucks. Just ask Richard “Tex” McKenna, a Kansas sophomore. Dealing with bullying, burgeoning love, the loss of parents, and dodge ball is bad enough.

  9. Tex and the Gangs of Suburbia (Book #2)
    'Fun, thrilling and tackles the big issues of teens today in an extremely entertaining manner.' -5 Star USA review. Tex McKenna’s junior year of high school is just as bad as his sophomore year. Maybe worse. Olivia’s dumped him. He's caught up between two warring gangs and gone “undercover” with the Modern Gangstas to unmask a murderer. All this poor Witch Boy and supernatural trouble magnet wants to do is end the school year alive. And maybe find out who the mysterious punker girl is and how she knows all his secrets.

Is the heinous Clarendon Baptist Church a front for something more sinister? Elspeth’s back, too, trouble trailing on her booted heels. If Tex and his friends don't figure it out soon, Tex won't have to worry about life after high school. Book #3 of the acclaimed Tex, the Witch Boy YA series.

    'Fast-paced, suspenseful and creepy.' -Horror and fantasy author Jeff Champman. It used to be such a nice neighborhood. Derek and his wife Toni were content living in the quiet suburbs of Barton, Kansas. Until the new neighbors moved in. Rude, brash, loud, but there was something more to them. Something Derek couldn't put his finger on. And the older neighbors were dying off at an alarming rate. Were Derek’s past mental issues resurfacing or was he on to a darker truth? And just what is in the basement of the house on Pawnee Lane?
  14. Demon with a Comb-Over
    'Equal parts laughter and suspense, but 100% awesome!' -5 Star USA review. Stand-up comedian Charlie Broadmoor has a hell of a time coming up with new material while terrorized at every waking moment by a poorly-coiffed, thin-skinned eldritch evil whose appreciation of humor is dwarfed by his monumental pettiness. Charlie quickly learns that making light of the supernatural is no joke. It’s Seinfeld meets Milton in this uproarious tale of fear and laughing by Stuart R. West. This edition also features The Book of Kobal, giving the reader a glimpse into the origins of the short-tempered demon.
