About the author
Artist, Educator, and currently an adjunct professor working with student teachers at a Pittsburgh area University. Enjoyed 30+ years teaching teaching Art in the Pittsburgh Public Schools system. A Father, husband, grandfather, coach, and hopefully, a friend to many. A passion to write, and, maybe, write well, remained a persistent “itch” throughout my lifetime. I began this book eight years ago. I sensed that the story line had some merit, but in reality, the writing was awful. During the spring of 2015 I returned to the manuscript. Energy flowing, I began to write two to three pages a day. It became a demanding and difficult challenge. After 5 months I began to feel satisfied with my efforts. Almost daily, I would read and re-read, tweaking and detailing. Finally, comfortable, I began the process of publishing. I hope that you are entertained by my efforts.

About the book
Colerain Pike is generous, talented, intellectual, attractive, socially conscious, and enjoys the company of women. The only child of successful and wealthy professional parents. He chose to accept being drafted into the U.S. Military during the Vietnam conflict. Efforts to alter his situation by his connected parents were rejected. Never married, he relished his intimate relationships with four desirable women. Each woman, at some point, ended their relationship with Colerain unilaterally. Those four women remained “in his head”. Mr. Pike was unable to liberate himself from the power of their rejections. Colerain killed those four women during a patterned serial process. At each scene he intentionally left a clue that would always remain untraceable. Through an unseen observer, during his fourth killing, he became an addiction “in her head”.

  1. Daniele Livingston

    The multidimensional characters were very skillfully described. The central character ( Colerain Pike) was capable of committing horrible acts but, he also performed greats acts of compassion. The authors descriptions of people, places, events, and the movement of the story were compelling and in many ways artistic. The book’s ending shocked, surprised, and honestly impressed the heck out of me.

  2. Julian Martuarno

    I was so totally immersed it this book that I felt compelled to submit to a non-stop reading binge. I read from dusk to dawn, ( I’m serious) and actually finished the book while sacrificing a night’s sleep. The chapters are short and so well written that you “Must” continue reading. Even the titles of the chapters were delightfully thought provoking. The ending of “In His Head” begs for a sequel.

  3. Anne Rogers

    The most prominent word that comes to mind while describing this book is precise. The writing, the descriptions, the main character, the plot, the stages and staging, the investigation etc. are compelling. This book, “In His Head” forced me to continue turning pages. The storyline was skillfully crafted to make you want to keep reading and turning pages. When the unexpected ending arrived, l immediately began hoping for book number 2….

  4. Jan Gieder

    This book is very good. Well told, great character development, with interesting descriptions of the characters, the surroundings and locations, a unique plot, and the storyline kept me super interested to the vey surprising ending. Colerain Pike didn’t get caught or did he? (I am an avid lifetime reader and this book is way up on my list.)
    P.S. the author actually took the name of the bus driver from a very famous painting. Deep!

  5. Barb Sobe

    A terrific non-stop page turner. Short chapters with creatively written and detailed people, places, and events. The author is able to take you into the crime scenes, and into the heads and lives of all of the characters. The writer uses words like an artist uses a paintbrush. Wow! The ending surprised me, and left me ravenous for more. I look forward to the sequel.

  6. Jay Maturano

    I was so totally immersed in this book that I was compelled to anxiously turn to the next page and the next chapter. I felt compelled, and could not stop reading. I read from dusk to dawn and finished the book while sacrificing a night’s sleep. Finally, so much detail was provided about the characters, and their actions that I actually began to know them.

  7. Jan Gieder

    The prominent word that comes to mind is precise…. the writing, the descriptions, the main character, the plot, the staging, the police investigation etc. This is a book that forces you to continue turning pages. The story was definitely unique. Colerain is a hard core murderer, but yet a nice guy. I truly enjoyed the book and it’s way up on my favorites list.
