As she mingles with the rich, powerful and disturbing members of the Sinclair household, she becomes entangled in a web of secrets, lies and intrigue. Before long, her haunting dreams and visions return, slowly exposing a terrifying truth.

Testimonials:

Excellent psychological thriller set in the Pacific Northwest. A well-built mystery a la Agatha Christie, with lots of clues and red herrings sprinkled throughout the novel. (5/5 stars)” – Jennifer S. Alderson (Author of The Lover’s Portrait)

This book is little more spooky than the other 2, but still maintains its playful spirit. It’s filled with twists that make it a page turner – hard to put down. Once again, however, I am left disappointed that I have to wait for the next book to find out what happens next! (5/5 stars)” -Amazon customer

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 novella. 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.

“A short story full of mystery, danger, and surprises. As the story progresses, the author makes really good use of foreboding and dream sequences to build tension and heighten the anticipation of the reader. The characters and premise of the story are believable and relatable, and while it starts off with the appearance of a story that might be romantic, it soon develops into something far more mysterious and compelling. (5/5 stars)”  – Book Squirrel – received a Gold Acorn

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!
