Predators of Darkness - Leonard D Hilley II

"The desolate streets of downtown Pittsburgh are a constant reminder of the missile attack that forever changed the lives of the surviving scientists and students hidden inside the fallout shelter of Helmsby's Genetic Research Center. Believing themselves to be the only survivors, they station themselves inside the research center until their food supplies near depletion. Thinking the fallout has lessened, they emerge three years later to discover strange creatures patrolling the streets in search of human flesh and blood. The creatures possess the ability to shift their genomes and alter their appearances by realigning their genetic sequences. Although they have no conclusive evidence to prove the creatures’ origin, Dr. Helmsby—a renowned genetics genius—believes the shifters escaped from TransGenCorp, a scientific laboratory suspected of manufacturing clones and other genetic atrocities.

Daniel Hutchinson, their leader, teams with Lucas Ridale to comb the streets and search for provisions. To cover more area, they head out opposite directions and scavenge downtown Pittsburgh. They also hope to find other survivors. But Daniel uncovers mysteries more frightening than the shifters. He discovers the tip of Pittsburgh has been fenced off from the rest of the area. Low-flying helicopters observe the streets, making him ponder the question: Were the shifters released as simply part of a military experiment with humans being their prey?”

Why did I self-publish? 

 I chose to self-publish because of the current economy has made it virtually impossible for a new author to be published by traditional publishers. And building a reading audience like this lets me get to know more about my readers as I have to promote and meet them online. I believe this makes an author more accessible to readers.

What will readers like about my books? 

My books are set up to dark environments with strong characters and vivid twists and turns. When readers believe they have the storyline figured out, that's when they discover there's more that they have overlooked.

My favorite authors?

I have a vast number of people that I read and try to keep up with.
