Book Blurb:
Scott and Jessie are a couple in love. Ashley, their only daughter, is 17-years old and has vanished; leaving behind nothing but a pool of blood. Her strange disappearance is quickly thought to be a homicide. Her cozy, northwest town is stunned when police find the body of another girl at the bottom of the Willamette River. The eerie signature found on the girl links to a monster dubbed the Hail Mary Killer. While Scott searches for Ashley, the FBI feels convinced that she is the killer’s latest victim.

In spite of three other bodies with the same distinct marking, no one prepared themselves for the discovery in southern Oregon. Local hikers stumble upon a car in the mountain brush and a tattooing needle with an evil history surfaces inside. A cabin appears nearby with another gruesome discovery. Scott finds some solace in his friendship with Father Henry as he and Jessie try to salvage their marriage and move on beyond the loss of Ashley. The FBI finally catches a break when they unearth the dark past of the Hail Mary Killer’s family. What emerged in his basement is more terrifying than anyone could have possibly imagined.

What happens to the Miller family and Father Henry will shake your soul and keep you reading till the last page.

He lived in Oregon for the past 5+ years and recently moved back to North Georgia after spending the past 12 years all over the country. He loves the Trailblazers as well as Oregon State, where he will graduate with a B.A. in English in June 2014. Jackson has been married for 11 years and him and his wife have 4 beautiful children together, aged 4-9.

He graduated from a Bible college in 2003 and that is where he met his wife. He spent 7 years as a youth and teaching pastor, but have not been a pastor for the past 3 year. Though not very religious himself, there are spiritual themes within his writing due to a large part of his life. His characters, much like himself, struggle with faith, doubt, and love as a part of their everyday lives. This newest novel is by no means a Christian novel, however, the language in the story is more of what you would find in real life, as well as situations not suited for a church service.

Interview with Jackson Baer:
When did you first start writing and why?
I used to write poems as a kid and titles of books I wanted to write. I never got around to writing any of those books when I was younger. I started to write songs as a young adult and also discovered my love for reading. It wasn't until around year ago that I began to write. Once I did, I found that I just couldn't stop. 
What was the inspiration for this murder mystery book?
To be honest, it's a bit different than a murder mystery. It's an even blend between a literary fiction and a suspense. There is a mystery that runs throughout and the inspiration came from some of my favorite writers like: Joyce Carol Oates, Sherman Alexie, and Junot Diaz. 
How do you find the determination to continue to write?
I love stories. Writing allows me to create this brand new world that didn't exist only seconds ago. There's not much like it in this world. It's a mixture of art, learning, and exploration that makes me whole. 
How do you come up with ideas for your books? 
I'm not exactly sure. Ideas pop into my head and I write down the good ones. Sometimes, I write down the bad ones too :)
 What do you love about writing?
The thing I love most is that is lets me express my innermost thoughts. 

What do you dislike about writing?
Editing. I don't mind editing, but once it gets to the part with the actual editor, I'm just ready for the book to be published.  

What are your writing habits?  
I do most of my writing late at night. It's peaceful and quiet.
What do you do when you don't write?
I'm married to a beautiful woman and we have four kids together. Family is the most important thing to me. I am also finishing my English degree at Oregon State University.
