As police investigate his residence for evidence of indecent acts committed on a young girl fifteen years ago, counselor Tony Brindell continues to deny that he ever acted inappropriately when he was her high school teacher.
‘I’m not a pedophile! I’m Christian!’ He shouted to the waiting media.
Tracey Logan, now twenty seven, has claimed that Brindell seduced her when she was fourteen.
A second woman has also come forward, revealing intimate details of a long term affair she says she had with Brindell when she was just thirteen.
The women’s claims and his home have become the focus of a probe into Brindell’s personal and professional history.
Brindell, a well-respected radio broadcaster, Pastor, youth worker and counselor, has not yet been charged.
Originally, Tony Brindell wasn’t written into Darkness Awakes to be a pedophile. He was just a kind, Christian man who liked to help people and became a counselor to do just that.
It wasn’t until Mitchell Felding’s character started to take shape did I realize how important it was to have a counterpoint in Tony’s.
He has a good wife, nice family and noble hobbies. The man’s a perfectly grounded individual – a necessary trait suited to the vocation in which he works.
His hidden side is eventually exposed by a sadistic serial killer, one excruciating piece at a time.
Did I mention that my writing is dark?

“Forman’s writing style is artful, with the protagonist Mitchell’s warped thought processes masterfully exposed. The author has a powerful and vivid command of language and his word pictures are stark and disturbingly real.”– Linda J Bettenay, author of ‘Secrets Mothers Keep’ and ‘Wishes For Starlight’.
