“In the canopies of the trees above the entrance, birds darted among the branches, their cries shrill and musical, a chorus of longing, loneliness, and warning.” —from Chapter 2 of The Unwelcome
You can read all 8 Chapters (and Prologue) of my gothic mystery/ghost story THE UNWELCOME by clicking on the image above and visiting the Archive. (Chapter 9 coming soon!) The novel follows the story of a young historic preservationist, Thomas Hook, hired to visit and inspect an old decrepit estate—with a grisly past—on a remote island off the coast of Maine. As you might imagine, things don’t exactly go according to plan for Mr. Hook.
