Here is a collection of tales varying in length, and differing in other ways as well. And with no relation to each other. There is an element of historical truth in each, together with lots of imagination. A few are what I would call poetic-prose mini stories. So I invite you to enjoy reading all of these stories as I have enjoyed creating them.

This eBook has been formatted to the highest digital standards and adjusted for readability on all devices. Hill House is an 80 year-old mansion built by long-deceased Hugh Crain. The story concerns four main characters: Dr. John Montague, an investigator of the supernatural; Eleanor Vance, a shy young woman who resents having lived as a recluse caring for her demanding invalid mother; Theodora, a flamboyant, bohemian, possibly lesbian artist; and Luke Sanderson, the young heir to Hill House, who is also the host to the others. Dr. Montague hopes to find scientific evidence of the existence of the supernatural. He rents Hill House for a summer and invites as his guests several people whom he has chosen because of their past experience with paranormal events. Of these, only Eleanor and Theodora accept. All four of the inhabitants begin to experience strange events while in the house, including unseen noises and ghosts roaming the halls at night, strange writing on the walls and other unexplained events. Eleanor tends to experience phenomena to which the others are oblivious. At the same time, Eleanor may be losing touch with reality...A finalist for the National Book Award, The Haunting of Hill House is considered as one of the best literary ghost stories published during the 20th century, even by stalwarts like Stephen King. It has been made into two feature films, a TV series and a play. Jackson's novel relies on terror rather than horror to elicit emotion in the reader, utilizing complex relationships between the mysterious events in the house and the characters' psyches. A must read!

"What would it have been like to be a sixteen-year-old girl in 1925, unmarried and pregnant? In those days, society was cruel to a young woman in this situation. Family members often turned their backs out of embarrassment. The young woman was disgraced and ostracized. The child born out of wedlock was tarnished for life unless secretly adopted. Options were few. Abortion was illegal, expensive, and extremely risky, ignoring any moral issues. Scared and ashamed, many girls were sent to "visit" family in another city or states until the problem went away. A well-kept secret from society, over 100,000 of these young women were sent to Kansas City, Missouri. They traveled, mostly by train, to facilities like The Willows Maternity Sanitarium to hide their dilemma. The Willows was one of the largest homes in America for unwed, pregnant girls to live in seclusion. Months later they would return home empty handed to carry on as though nothing ever happened. They physical pain and trauma were over but the emotional wounds were never healed or forgotten. This is the incredible, true story of The Willows Maternity Sanitarium, the Haworth family who were savvy business owners yet deeply compassionate to these unfortunate girls, and the voices of several whose lives were touched by The Willows."--back cover.

When a young woman inherits a rundown mansion, the last thing she expects to find is the key to her heart... Abby Foster is a fish out of water in the Maine coastal town of Jewell Cove. The crumbling Foster estate, left to her by a relative she never even knew, has everyone's eyes on her—an eerie reminder of the long-buried family secrets that have haunted her...forever. Single, stunning, and sometimes too strong-willed for her own good, Abby's plan is to sell the house and hightail it back to Nova Scotia. But another part of her is intrigued by the idea of starting over somewhere new—and finally learning the truth about her heritage. THE HOUSE ON BLACKBERRY HILL Enter Tom Arseneault. The best contractor in Jewell Cove, Tom is determined to restore the beauty and prestige of the Foster mansion—and maybe even work his charms on its beautiful new heir. The attraction between him and Abby is undeniable, and the more time Tom spends on the house the more he wants to be in it with her. But Abby's not sure she can trust him—or anyone in Jewell Cove who seems to know more about her family history than she does. Home: Is it really where the heart is after all? "Oh, my silly heart be still. This is a wonderful romance, packed with family drama, a sexy hero, an incredible old house. You'll fall in love from the very first page."—Debbie Macomber, #1 New York Times bestselling author
