5 Authors to check out on Hoopla

Robert Bloch- Bloch was an author of mystery, crime, horror and science-fiction. His fiction is spiked with his sinister sense of humor and surprise twist-endings. He also wrote for films and television. Most modern writers credit Bloch with being an early inspiration in their lives. If you only know Norman Bates from Alfred Hitchcock’s film Psycho, it’s safe to say you don’t know Norman Bates. Hoopla will get you caught up with Bloch’s original Psycho trilogy. (For the record, Psycho II was the first book that kept me up all night reading because I had to find out how it ended.)
