     In southern Maryland today, you can hear of the legend of Moll Dyer and her witchy ways, but if you want to know the truth of the matter you'd be best off reading an account from someone who was there. Sister Witch: The Life of Moll Dyer is her own personal reflections and diary. A young girl only wanted the best in life, never looking for any trouble, but the prejudices of men influenced
and affected every part of her life, from hiding her training in the old world herbal ways, to passing her baby off as her brother. When she and her uncle needed help on the farm, she refused to buy a
slave. She made her uncle buy a black woman, Nema, that no one wanted and then immediately told her that after she had worked seven years, she was free. For that, Nema became her best friend
and fiercest protector. Author David Thompson has given us a well written book that looks into the life of someone who didn't subscribe to the attitudes of the time.
     In Sister Witch: The Life of Moll Dyer, Moll makes friends with the local Indians and a former slave. This bothers people in the town. Because she and her uncle had the foresight to build their farm beside a small creek, and they had water while most of the town was suffering a drought, instead of realizing their good planning, the townsfolk called Moll a witch. When Moll worked from sunup to sundown to bring in a good crop, instead of acknowledging her hard work, people said women couldn't work the way a man did - it must be witchcraft. Author David Thompson gives you the life of a woman from innocence to death, who wanted nothing more than to provide for her family and friends, to give her son a good life, and to have loyal friends around her. She never wanted any trouble with anyone, but it seems that trouble is what she ended up getting.
This is definitely a story everyone should read.


“It's clear that you have a passion for writing, and you quickly immerse your readers in the time period, world, and characters you've created. You have a knack for crafting clear, yet engaging prose with a suitably historical feel, and we immediately want to know Moll's story.”   


“I loved your take on Moll Dyer!!! It was a great re-telling of the ghost story, with a sympathetic twist. I’ve been thinking about it since I finished it :) I love it when that happens.” 


“With his debut novel, Thompson puts a new spin on an old ghost story. Artfully crafted, Moll dyer becomes a sympathetic figure, allowing the reader an alternative view of the early American legend.  With surprising plot twists and affable characters, Sister Witch will keep you reading until the end.” Author Isabella Adams

My latest release!

Sons and Brothers continues the tradition of its award winning predecessors in the “Legends of the Family Dyer” trilogy. This third installment, although stand-alone, follows the descendants of the accused 17th century witch, Moll Dyer. Another century has passed and divergent family lines are reunited.

Two cousins from different backgrounds, Garren and Brodie, meet at a camp in the Potomac highlands. One hails from the flatlands of Southern Maryland; the other calls the mountains of West Virginia home. The Dyer family’s ancestral foe, the dark entity Laris, doesn’t care where they came from because he knows who they came from. Disguising his intentions, he has one last chance to complete Lilith’s demonic hit.
Three friends oppose the ancient evil: Anna—a hesitant Native American spiritualist, Lenore—a teenager discovering shape-shifting abilities, and Garren—a regular teenage guy with too much to lose...and plenty to gain. The terrors of the past are revisited and the corruption of the past seeps into the present.

The friends embark on a life and death challenge with help from Anna’s spirit guide. All three, a “hero triumvirate,” embrace their newfound talents in an attempt to save their loved ones from the encroaching darkness.

In this often bloody and heart wrenching tale, dark family secrets are revealed, temptation is embraced and the circle of life is renewed. Does love conquer hate? Should some truths remain untold? Can some sins not be forgiven? What would you do?
