Author Biography

I currently live in FL where I work as an elementary school Reading Coach, and I also run a martial arts dojo where I teach Shaolin Kempo Karate. I've always enjoyed creative writing since I was a kid, but never had a decent idea for anything worth publishing...until a few years ago when the idea for The Keepers of White series just popped in my head while listening to Fleetwood Mac's "Black Magic Woman" on the radio.
Creative Writing and Martial Arts are my 2 biggest passions, and I'm blessed to have found the courage to pursue both avenues.

Agents of Shadow: The Keepers of White by Richard Crofton is book 1 of a horror series like no other. Megan Panco has moved to Lancaster, PA, to try to pick up her life after losing her mother. She has the perfect man, a strong belief in her faith, and is happy, as far as she can be. She has no idea that she is the key that the Agents of Shadow are looking for. The Agents of Shadow are a secret organization, using the dark arts to build up their wealth and power; they are a part of the very fabric of society, a part of every life and have no compunction about using whatever means they need for self-gain. The Dark Year is coming, and the agents are building enough power to rule humanity forever and it is up to Megan to stop them. How? By staying away from them, by not letting them capture her. Without Megan, there can be no Dark Year but is she strong enough to evade capture?

Wow! Agents of Shadow: The Keepers of White by Richard Crofton is some story! Richard Crofton has a real gift for telling a story and he has put it to good use here as he weaves a dark and terrifying tale, one that plays games with the mind. This is a story of good against evil, a story with an ingenious plot line and a ton of twists that are going to keep you guessing, right to the very end. The characters are an interesting bunch, each with their own story to tell and incredibly well developed. There is a lot of character building here, scene setting for the next book in the series, and I guarantee you will not put this down - you’ll be too afraid! This book will make you question everyone you meet – are they who they seem to be or are they also involved in a dark, secret cult! The descriptions bring the story to life and make you feel like you are there as it happens. The suspense is electrifying and I really can’t wait to read the rest of the series.
