Editorial Reviews

About the Author



M.Lee Buompensiero is a third generation San Diegan and supports the writing arts through her work as member of the Board of Directors of the San Diego Writers/Editors Guild.She is the managing editor of the annual anthology, The Guilded Pen, a collection of short stories, essays and poetry by its members. In 2016, Buompensiero established Grey Castle Publishing to promote local authors.

Sumerland was inspired by a truestory, childhood events, and the oral history handed down from Buompensiero'sgrandmother. "Grandmother's past was shrouded in secrets and shadows,"Buompensiero says. "Her estrangement from her husband resulted in a family split that lasted for generations. Our reunion, 90 years later, became the catalyst for Sumerland.

"I owe my storytelling passion to Grandmother Clara who raised me. Her voice fueled my imagination and is why I write today. Her tall tales aboutgrowing up in the back woods of Canada were dark and pulsed with characters who were mired in misdeeds and tragedy."

"Sumerland," Buompensiero says, "is first and foremost, a family fable. It is an homage to our ancestors, a declaration of hope that future generations may learn from the mistakes of the past--and not repeat them. Everything we are today has its beginnings in the lives of those who came before us."

Sumerland is very definitely a ghoststory. "The house in the story exists," Buomensiero says."We have a history. In the book's 'Author's Notes,' I tell of many instances of paranormal activity that I experienced while living there.Recently, while researching for this novel, I drove by the old place. It'sstill there, at the top of hill, fenced off and, undoubtedly, still haunted."

Buompensiero also writes under the pen name "Loren Zahn" and is the author of the Theo HunterMystery Series: Dirty Little Murders and Deadly Little Secrets. Please visit theohuntermysteries.com to learn more.
