That Dark Place

I guess it requires me to express my feelings about your book Deliver Us From Darkness. ... I can get a very clear picture of who the people are and how they feel. It is like a manual of “How to get to the feet of GOD and get loved.” [It] dismisses doubts like, “He will not accept me for, I am such an evil person?”

​A few nights ago, one of my oldest

and dearest friends called me to tell

me he wanted to talk to me about something... What followed was a long night of praying. I over-nighted my

copy of Deliver Us from Darkness to him. Tonight, he called to tell me he

... prayed the prayer of salvation. Tomorrow, he's going to church for

the first time since we were teenagers!

My friend Cheryl gifted your Deliver Us from Darkness book to me. It's definitely a God story how that all happened. ... Just wanted to say I loved your book! I cried through the last few chapters ... You write well but more than that, this book was used by the Lord to further confirm something He has been speaking. Your book had a specific purpose in my life and for that I thank God that you wrote it!







W. Franklin Lattimore is the author of the Otherealm Saga which debuted in 2014 with Deliver Us from Darkness. Books 2, When Darkness Comes, and 3, Behind the Darkness, round out the series to this point. The fourth book,  That Dark Place, is currently a work in progress. His former involvement in the occult as a teenager was the springboard for writing the Otherealm Saga. Now a committed Christian, his books are written as a wake-up call to those dabbling in, curious about, and heavily active in witchcraft and other "spiritual" activities. His books are also designed to educate Christians on their positions and authority in Christ and their respon-

sibility to make Jesus known to their communities, while willingly taking some risks to do so.

      Frank is a graduate of Kent State University, with a B.A. in Political Science. In addition to his formal education, Apologetics (the study of the evidences supporting the Christian faith) and Creation Science are favorite areas of study.

     He and his wife, Lynn, are active in their “Rockin” church, and in their free time, they enjoy target shooting, hiking, and biking. While Lynn isn't a big fan of these other pursuits, Frank also enjoys fishing, ziplining, riding roller coasters, and eating crispy BBQ wings.

​​​In these streaming audios (left), I share my painful past—personal encounters with darkness—that led to the point in my life where, with no hope, someone came to my rescue.


Note: The rocky relationships within my family were healed in the years that followed. We're all blessed to be in each others' lives. God does wonderful things! In the WQTT Radio Interview, I inadvertently stated that my brother had been 4 or 5 years old, when, in fact, he had been 6 or 7 at the time.
