Book Description

**2nd Edition--October, 2012** Kellie, a young college grad laid off from her first teaching job and besieged by creditors, receives a letter requesting her appearance at the reading of Frederick Malone’s will. What could she have in common with the town’s richest man? Curiosity draws her to the will reading where she learns she has inherited a vast sum. The conditions of her inheritance require she change her name and reside in the Malone mansion. Long considered haunted by the residents of Malone Springs, Kellie, her fiancé and four friends move in ignoring the rumors. Strange and frightening events begin to plague Kellie before she moves and grow more frightening once she and her friends settle in. Adopted at birth, her adoptive parents killed in an auto accident leave Kellie to investigate her ancestors on her own. What she discovers leads her into more danger and mystery as she learns the true nature of her biological grandfather. Could his evil deeds hurt her from beyond the grave? Who’s responsible for the strange occurrences? What happened to her biological parents? As one solved mystery leads Kellie into another, she and her friends try to solve them all before tragedy strikes.
This book also contains the supernatural/mystery short story "MEGAN'S FEAR."
Will Kellie's grandfather terrorize the Malone Mansion and its residents again in the sequel "OLD MAN MALONE RETURNS?" Available summer 2013.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Letter July 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This novelist is quite the story spinner. The Letter is one of the rare gems of a story that keeps you guessing, and what a pleasant surprise it is-to be surprised! Up and down this roller coaster of a "who done it," through the many twists and turns-the author does a fantastic job of weaving a tale that drew me in, and before I knew it, I was hooked.
It is an enjoyable trip of the imagination, well worth the read!

1.0 out of 5 stars Very Poorly Written December 3, 2012
By Laura
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I should have read the reviews first. I didn't even make it through 3 chapters before I have up. The writing was awful and didn't compel me to read on further. It's extremely rare that I don't finish a book but this one was worth suffering through the lack luster 3rd grade writing.

Really enjoyed the book. I'm always looking for a good read with suspense, mystery, and the paranormal. I have downloaded almost 200 books since owning my Kindle Fire, and I have to say, this is one of my favorites!THE LETTER

1.0 out of 5 stars In for a complete letdown... February 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Poorly written for a mature reading audience. Maybe better suited for the Jr. High crowd. I literally had to make myself finish the story, telling myself, I paid for it, I'm going to finish it.

This is a very entertaining "who-dun-it" book with a few surprising twists and turns. The end to me was a bit cliche, but it had that slight twist to it. Very good read

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read September 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoy a good mystery novel, and this book falls right into that category. I have never read this author in the past, and after reading the description of the book, I decided to give it a try. I'm glad I did. It has everything a good mystery novel should have. I just wanted to keep reading so I could find out what happens and "who did it." I would have given the book five stars, but I feel five stars should only be given if I am blown away. I would recommend this book to anyone that likes a good mystery. It had me guessing, all the way through to the end. It is likely that I will read other books by this author based on my reading of this one.

This was surprisingly poorly written. The point of view changed in the middle of a sentence. The characters were not fleshed out well. I was disappointed because this story idea had potential.

More About the Author

I was born in Wisconsin and lived there until I was eighteen. Then I spent eight years in Washington state and California before returning to Wisconsin. I love eerie places and books. I began with a love of Nancy Drew books and as I grew I found H.P Lovecraft, Poe, Agatha Christie, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle among others. When I am not writing, I am reading or watching sunsets. I have been writing short stories since I was in grade school. Most were in the form of essays relating real life events. Many were purely imaginary trips to magical places and times. I enjoy making up stories about people I meet or see on the street. I can see a story in a picture, especially if the picture is eerie. My imagination runs wild and free. I have self-published two books of supernatural short stories and a book of children's stories for my granddaughter, Brittney. Gypsy Spirits is my debut novel and the first in the series of three "spirit" books. I have self-published the second and third "spirit" books, "Annamarie and Magdalena" is the second and "Lena" the third. I also self-published a supernatural mystery, THE LETTER. The sequel to THE LETTER, OLD MAN MALONE RETURNS, was released in June 2013. Since then I have added two more Kellie Conley mysteries and the fifth, "Summer of Evil" will be available in November 2014. From there, I am sure my muse will guide me into another story plot.
