Tell us a little about your latest book?
The Old House By The Woods is a mystery book with colored illustrations for middle graders, teens, and young adults.
The protagonist of the story is the private detective Ria Robertson who is an ex-police officer. She enjoys what she does. It has all the excitement of her former job plus the liberties of being your own boss. Hired by Eve to investigate strange occurrences in her newly bought home, Ria can’t wait to solve the mystery of the century-old haunted house in Mistgrove.
Joined by Jenny and Andy – her sister and best friend – and the last words of a dying man, they set out to uncover the secrets of Eve’s house. Little do they know that a mysterious killer is on the loose and that no one is safe in the old house by the woods.
Running against time, will Ria be able to solve the mystery behind the paranormal occurrences, stop a killer before he strikes again, and save innocent lives from a conspiracy far more dangerous than she ever imagined?
This is a thrill-packed, fun read with plenty of twists and turns for every mystery lover.
