619: “A Job’s a Job” by TD Trask



Vince, the owner of a convenience store in a small New York town finds himself suddenly in need of a new night manager.

The perfect applicant shows up, but what will happen if he hires him? And, what makes him such a good fit for the position?

About the Author:

TD Trask is a writer of horror. A self-described reformed Scottish-Irish barbarian, he lives in Binghamton, NY with his wife, Dena and their two feline overlords, Ralphie and Gracie.

He has lived on both American coasts, has gotten his kicks on Route 66 more than once, visited Area 51, received an abrupt military invitation to leave Area 51, and is one degree of separation from Mel Gibson, Lou Ferrigno, James Whitmore and Bill Maher.

His first published novel, “Still Waters”, is about a man who forms a deep and unexpected connection with a most unusual neighbor. “Legend of the Tiger” is an epic fantasy-thriller depicting the dangerous mission of a band of domestic animals trying to protect our planet from ecological terrorism. His latest effort, “Deadsville”, co-written with author Dale Elster, is an anthology of short, throwback-style horror stories set in fictional Rock Creek, NY, where strange and terrifying things happen to everyday, rural people. Works-in-progress include “The Callers”, a horror story set once again in Upstate’s Rock Creek, as well as his next short story collection, “Banquet of Souls”.
