ABOUT THE RUMBLIN' (A SHORT STORY):
Phil Knite is so ready for a vacation, but he and his family get more from mother nature than they can handle. The rumblin', as described by the Camp Ranger, is terrible force, something to be feared. Phil ignores the redneck ranger's advise and heads to bed. Later that night, when a wicked storm blows in from the north, Phil and his family are forced to shack up with the rest of the campers. Phil knew the Ranger was a little crazy, but he wasn't prepared for what lies within the rumblin'!
WARNING: THIS SHORT STORY IS LOOSELY BASED ON ACTUAL EVENTS.

In the summer of 2010, I took my family on a camping trip. We set up camp, started a fire, roasted hot dogs, and began what was supposed to be a great weekend. We knew there was a 30% chance of thunder showers but went anyway. Well, guess what? Within the first 3-4 hours of our weekend excursion, the sky turned black as night, the wind picked up and a huge wall of clouds came rushing at the campground like nothing I've ever seen before. The camp owner buzzed through the campground on a golf cart, urging all of us to come to the store basement before the storm hit. We did.
If you've ever been camping, you'll know that there are a varity of characters in a campground. With all of us packed like sardines, pets and all, the writer in me began to imagine what it would be like if we were trapped in there. What if we couldn't get out? What if a tree fell on the building and it caught on fire? What if one of the campers was a killer? Sounds crazy I know. But that's how my writerly mind works; I can't apologize for that.
While huddled up with my family, I started characterizing the other detainees and we had a few laughs. Before long, the rain dried up and we were set free. When we returned, I wrote The Rumblin'. I hope you enjoy it. It's short, but fast paced, filled with a great cast, and very suspenseful.
"Reading the reviews of this book, I wondered if it was all it was hyped up to be. Reading it - I discovered it really was. The violence is beautifully executed, the plot is perfect in its speed and intensity and the characters are wonderfully written. Jeff Bennington has written a stunning story here. Ten out of ten." - Michael Wilson
"Jeff Bennington delivers scary, thrilling stories with a lot of heart. Make room at the top." - Scott Nicholson, bestselling author of The Red Church

Read information about the authorI'm the bestselling author of REUNION, Twisted Vengeance, Creepy and The Indie Author's Guide to the Universe.
I live in Central Indiana with my wife, four children and two stray cats. I obsess over details, dream strange dreams and teach a creative writing course for a homeschool co-op. Look for my upcoming paranormal thriller, Act of Vengeance, coming in late 2011.
I grew up in Saginaw Michigan, moved to Aurora, Ohio in 78' and finally settled in Central Indiana where I met my wife and graduated from Indiana University. I'm an occasional runner, life long drummer, and household handyman. Over the years, I've done everything from working on an assembly line, installing HVAC units, teaching Sunday school, to running my own business. But through it all, I've always loved to write.
In 2006, something finally clicked when I heard the calling to begin writing novels - and write I did. Like many writers, I have a book or two that the world may never read, so don't ask about those. It is my hope, however, that the ones you do read will be good, inspiring you to think about life
