Top 10 Book of 2018It’s one of those charming stories where the characters touch you in some way.

The Baby on the Back Porch

The Baby on the Back Porchthebabyonthebackporch is the first story in the Dunhill Series. It’s a shorter read, more of a novelette than a novel. It’s only available right now on Amazon as an ebook.

After a personal tragedy, Sara Eriksson leaves vibrant San Francisco for a tiny, old village, hidden in the Northern Cascade Mountains. She rents a cabin from David, her new landlord. What she doesn’t know is that this cabin has been a silent witness of events long forgotten. But sometimes the past has a way of resurfacing…and Sara finds her new cabin is not so peaceful as she had thought.

Following the leads presented to her, it takes both Sara and David to uncover the truth about the past—and discover a connection they never expected.


I really enjoyed this short novella. Given its length, I read it in one afternoon. The paranormal sub-plot intrigued me and I had to keep reading to discover what happened next. Both Sara and David are fleshed out characters which is impressive given how short it is. (4.5/5 stars)” -N.N. Light-

I really enjoyed this book! Seriously, it was a great refresher and distraction to my other current read. The plot line enticed me from the beginning, and I read this so fast, just wanting to know what happens! I was not left disappointed, and this is amazing considering I don’t normally pick up a short story!
