A LIFE TIME OF HORROR STORIES AS TOLD BY HIS FATHER LEADS TO SOME SERIOUS ISSUES FOR A YOUNG MAN. THE GROUNDSMEN OF SLEEPY HOLLOW BY GARY D. HENRY

This is a story of Paul Holtz and his horrific upbringing. The family lived next to the famed cemetery in the small New York town of Sleepy Hollow with his three older brothers and loving mother. His father, a fan of horror stories, peppered him with horrific tales of monsters that dwelled in the dark scary cemetery beside his home. Many a night young Paul gazed from his second story bedroom window to see the monsters, known as The Groundsmen, who his father assured were there and waiting in the darkness for unsuspecting and non-believing victims. 
His father had no idea what effect his stories had on Paul’s young mind. Nightly, his fat5her sat his young son’s down and plying them with blood and guts stories of what The Groundsmen do to people should they ever venture forth in the graveyard. Paul grew up scared and felt strange even walking past the cemetery on his way to school. 
A few years later, a prank that his father and older brothers pulled on Paul, sent him into the world of mental illness and fear. He dropped Paul into the cemetery at night and left him there. All the while. They hid in the bushes and made noises in the dark to add to Paul’s hysteria. After his father killed himself in the cemetery and after a year-long stint in the local mental hospital, he came back to find that all of his father’s stories came true and soon he found himself in the fight of his life trying to save his brothers from the evil Groundsmen. The fight against what he saw and what he believed begins in this hell-raising tale of deceit, monsters, and murder.
