Half the Terrible Things is an intimate, and sometimes violent, novel portraying three interconnected lives. Based on true events, the life of Martin Tabert is short and tragic. Martin Tabert is a young farm boy from Munich, North Dakota. While traveling around the country in 1922, he is pulled off a train near Tallahassee, Florida, charged with vagrancy, sentenced to a convict work camp, and whipped to death by the camp "Whipping Boss." His body is buried in an unknown location in wild swamp country. Eighty years later, his girlfriend Edna, ailing in a nursing home in Devils Lakes, North Dakota, asks her granddaughter Nicole to find his grave. Nicole is a young attorney with the U.S. Justice Department in Washington, D.C. She searches the Florida swamps while struggling with her own guilt stemming from her work at the Justice Department post 9/11. A young Arab man, wrongly suspected of being a terrorist, has died a brutal death while in U.S. custody and Nicole has been implicated.

Donna doesn’t know the old man with the sad face and yet there she is, beating him to death with a shovel. Is suppressed rage making her murder people in horrifying ways, or is she some sort of latent psychopath? She dreams of killing another man, and then another. The more people she kills, the more desperate she becomes to stop herself. Can she find the key and stop herself before she commits yet another gruesome murder? *** “I Do Terrible Things is a symphony of extreme horror. Goodrich masterfully draws the reader in and relentlessly turns the screws. Like a repeating melody, each chapter broadens and deepens the main character’s profound but subtle descent into madness and violence. By the time I had reached the grand guignol finale I felt as trapped in the tale as she did.” - Stephen Kozeniewsk, author of Braineater Jones “John Goodrich will appeal to fans of Laird Barron, Mary SanGiovanni, and Peter Straub.” - Brian Keene “What happened to the quiet and unassuming man I thought I knew? Something demented is brimming, hidden behind an unassuming, innocent smile that freezes into a rictus just below the surface. He’s serving up a seriously demented murder-rama thrillfest with a healthy dose of splatter. Death in the most insidious ways seem to fill every page. The pace, at times maddening, is handled skillfully, almost to the point of pain just before that wonderful release. I only hope someone this devastatingly disturbed is chained safely in his basement, his computer the only light.” - Monica O’Rourke, author of Suffer the Flesh “John Goodrich’s new novel, I Do Terrible Things, proves his debut, Hag, was no fluke. Beginning with a terrifying and surreal premise, this story of a woman who’s a reluctant, but vicious killer in her dreams ramps up into a thrilling search for the truth that ends in a way that’d make the Greek tragedians wince. Trust me, once you start this one, you aren’t going to want to sleep until it’s finished.” - Bracken MacLeod, author of Come to Dust and 13 Views of the Suicide Woods “Some of us don't get a 'cult fiction' sense from our reads very often, but you're likely to find it in John Goodrich. I Do Terrible Things offers up a meaty mix of Charles Willeford, John Skipp, and even Patricia Highsmith, all culminating into a nightmare of paranoia and crime that noir and horror fanatics will love. The results are unsettling, and at best, you'll be left with a sense of displacement that even your doctor will only be able to shrug at. Get on this book.” - Larissa Glasser, author of F4

We were six years old when I fell in love with Gage Beaumont.We were seventeen when he realized he felt the same.His dad was the town troublemaker, and I was the son of a cop. We couldn't have been more different, yet we were best friends, had each other's backs, and kept each other's secrets. What you are, I am, we always said.Then one night irrevocably changed our lives forever.It's ten years before I see Gage again, and instantly I can tell he's not the same boy I fell in love with. We're both haunted and hardened by the memory of that night-of everything we did and saw.Yet as much as we've changed, the connection between us lingers. Our history is so devastatingly complicated that it's difficult to allow ourselves happiness. With every touch, every laugh, every moment we take back, the more signs I see of the old Gage resurfacing. Little by little, I'm becoming the Joey he remembers too.But it's never that easy. If we truly want to heal, we have to find strength not only in each other, but in ourselves. Life is filled with beautiful and terrible things, and this time, we'll do whatever it takes to hold on to the good, and to each other.Warning: While this is a story about friendship, found family, and two men epically in love, it also deals with difficult themes: childhood physical and verbal abuse, some violence, depression, and anxiety.

Paramount Pictures wants to release a special director's cut of an iconic film from 1982. The only thing they need is the three reels of film stolen from the shooting location -- allegedly by one of the film's interns. Rory's offered $50,000 to track down the interns -- his old friends -- and find the film, but the search leads to shady politics, tawdry sex, a short stint in prison, murder, kidnapping ... and big hair.

One email. Two realities... Before: Jen Waite has met the partner of her dreams. A handsome, loving man who becomes part of her family, evolving into her husband, her best friend, and the father of her infant daughter. After: A disturbing email sparks suspicion, leading to an investigation of who this man really is and what was really happening in their marriage. In alternating Before and After chapters, Waite obsessively analyzes her relationship, trying to find a single moment form the past five years that isn't part of the long con of lies and manipulation.

In 1993 a small group of women gathered to celebrate the retirement of the original Ernie, a notoriously sexist trade union official who claimed that the only reason women wanted to become shearers was for the sex. The event grew to become the Annual Ernie Awards, the world's premier event shaming men for outrageous sexism. Fifteen years of Australian male chauvinist piggery is faithfully chronicled here with name, rank and serial number - from John Laws to John Howard, from David Oldfield to David Hookes, from Pat Cash to Paddy McGuinness and Australia's former favourite son-in-law, Tom Cruise. Chefs, archbishops, judges, footballers, shock jocks and politicians are all in our sights. I never turned away from Cathy. No matter how fat she was... -Nick Bideau, Cathy Freeman's ex-coach and ex-partner I bet she's now sorry she burnt her bra all those years ago (on Germaine Greer at 63). -Ray Hadley, broadcaster What do you think you're looking at, sugar tits? -Mel Gibson, actor With a nod to the good guys such as Don Bradman and Russell Crowe (really!), The Ernies Book is unashamedly wicked. If it weren't so funny, you'd have to cry. For all these years Meredith Burgmann and Yvette Andrews ran the Ernie Awards. They are now running for their lives.

My book is a comedy and a social satire about how everyone starts out idealistically chomping at the bit to use their mind to the fullest. (“A Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Waste” after all according to that Old School Traditional philosophy.) But after a while it sooner or later dawns on most everyone that what they are really doing is “wasting” their mind anyway. (Not only because no one ever LISTENS, but because nothing works the way it has been talked up). It’s an up close and personal picture of how it feels when life throws you a curved ball (or a lot of lemons from which you have to figure out how to make lemonade). It’s an emotional snapshot of how traumatic it is when nothing works out the way you once thought it would. When all those wonderful “ideas” and oh, so compelling words and theories cease to make any sense. But, rather than offering the reader a roadmap, it attempts to give an explanation for why nothing ever works. And how it feels to spin your wheels when your back is to the wall. And you’re neck and neck with all those nasty, infuriating unmentionables centering around all that social control. Along with the downside, however, there is an equal and opposite upside. The world of Songs (and Poetry) is held up as a guiding principle through which to regain your spiritual balance, gradually become “unstuck” and once again able to reboot yourself in a new direction. It’s also much more than a “blame yourself for everything and get out of your own way” guilt trip since it rejects all those simplistic cliché solutions found in Psychology books. Attempting instead to give the reader a much more focused insight into all those hard to put into words political, social and philosophical “outside forces” that affect why and how things can (and do) go wrong.
