About the Book

When newlyweds, Dr. Mirrah Dobrey-Brenton and her husband, Landy, move to Black Rock Island, Mirrah believes it's the beginning of a fairy tale. By her husband's side, they embark on a new beginning, when Mirrah accepts her retired father's position as Black Rock's only Doctor, and Landy, “keeper” of Mirrah's beloved, ancestral, lighthouse home. Together they happily await the impending arrival of their first born children . . . much-awaited triplets. For the happy couple, life is perfect. However, what began as a fairy tale, abruptly becomes Mirrah's worst nightmare, when she's violently awakened one dark, stormy, October evening, to discover her husband's lifeless body hanging by the neck. Five years later . . . still destined for misfortune, and haunted by ghosts of the past, Mirrah, her three children, and Sheriff Frank Brogan, find themselves in a fight for their lives with a very real and very deadly enemy. A sadistic mad man who's been much closer than either of them could have ever imagined.

About the Author

I vividly remember the first book that I read as a child. I also remember how deeply and profoundly it touched me. I knew from the very first page, that the world was a far more varied and vast place than a narrow imagination could appreciate. Ever since reading that first story, it has been my desire to inspire others to attain the same experience. A passion for the written word, and the ability to affect the imagination has always been my motivation for writing. I have been blessed to have grown up in a small rural community (with a few very close friends) where I still reside today. In this close knit community, in a close and loving family environment, I was able and encouraged to dream, and therefore able to cultivate my writing abilities. I am doubly blessed, as well over thirty years later, still having the same friends by my side. With the addition of a dynamic and supportive husband, and a menagerie of animals, I contently create my stories. I enjoy writing. I enjoy my life. And, I enjoy my job. I recall hearing it said, "If you love what you do, you'll never work a day in your life." Take it from me when I say, there is a great measure of truth in that statement. Always remember . . . a closed mind is the only obstacle to endless horizons!
