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 was picked up by BHC Press (Livonia, MI) in 2017 with books 1, 2 & 3: Deliver Us from Darkness, When Darkness Comes, and Behind the Darkness. In 2021, That Dark Place was indie published under the imprint of Direct Impact Books, bringing the series to its conclu-sion. Currently, Frank is researching his fifth novel, Old Jeep, a WWII story.

     Frank's involvement in the occult as a teen 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. They are are also specifically written to edu-

cate Christians on their positions and authority in Christ and to demon-strate our responsibility to make Jesus known to our communities.

  He's a graduate of Kent State University, with a B.A. in Political Sci-ence. In addition to his formal edu-cation, apologetics (the study of the evidences supporting the Christian faith), Creation Science, and disman-tling teachings within false religions are favorite areas of research.

     He and his wife, Lynn, are active in their “Rockin'” church, and in their free time, enjoy volunteer work, read-ing, target shooting, hiking, camping, roadtrips, and biking. While Lynn isn't a huge fan of these additional pursuits, Frank also enjoys writing, teaching, fishing, ziplining, riding rol-ler coasters, and eating crispy BBQ wings.

Delivered from Darkness * - Frank Lattimore
WQTT Radio ** - Frank Lattimore Interview

​​​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.

I had the pleasure of being interviewed by blogger and author Devin Joubert (yo-bear). She asked questions about my writing journey, a question about how someone who wants to become an author can accomplish that goal, and more. Additionally, I spoke about the content of my series, The Otherealm Saga, and why I chose such dark themes to write about.
