Old Man Smithers

Steve Altier

Secrets are hard to hide in a small town like Lizardville.


Bob's life is turned upside down after a tragic mistake leads to a horrible car crash. Unable to recover from the loss, Bob blames the youth in the nearby neighborhood. Every chance he gets, he expresses his frustration with them, especially with each passing holiday and the weight of being a sole survivor crushing down on him.


When strange and mysterious things start to happen, Bob turns to his lifelong friend Tom for answers in the form of a seance. Bob now must deal with his new reality and keep his family's secret hidden, but the phantom that is haunting him has other plans.


Will Bob and Tom be able to undo and revive normalcy despite what has been done? Or will it require teamwork and help from an unlikely source?

About the Author

Altier, Steve: - I grew up in a small town in central Pennsylvania. My parents owned the dam keeper's house on Lizardville Road. Across the street was an old, broken-down dam and the remnants of the ax factory. My buddies and I spent many days exploring the abandoned factory. Unexplained things happened when I was a child-inspiring my love for everything spooky and many of my stories. I currently live in Florida with my wife, four daughters, and four cats.Today, I'm a bestselling paranormal, mystery, and suspense writer. I am known for my multi-award-winning series, The Lizardville Ghost Stories, and Amazon Bestseller, The Ghost Hunter. I also have a fun line of middle-grade stories, The Gabby and Maddox Adventure Series. Several of my works have appeared in the national literary magazine Story Monsters Ink.I'm an avid reader who also enjoys bowling and spending time at amusement parks. I love to travel, take trips to the beach, or just lay around the pool with family and friends. You can visit my world at http: //www.stevealtier.com
