Hot Summers

Jody Summers sizzles with his acclaimed Dark Canvas series. Part two, The Mask Maker, was released in March, and a third is on its way.


Features

Greg Horton
When local author Jody Summers met former supermodel-actress Denice Lewis, she was using the ashes of her clients’ departed loved ones to create commemorative paintings. Lewis, whose most notable role was in Arnold Schwarzenegger’s End of Days, simply mixed the ashes with her paints and used the mixture in her composition.
