THE CLIFFHOUSE HAUNTING

“Thorne & Cross keep the surprises coming as swiftly as a master magician… the characters quickly become people we know, but then wish perhaps we didn’t… the laughter of recognition rides like bubbles on the surface of a deep flowing darkness… there’s something cold in here.”
~ Mark Hein, critic and editor at theaterghost.com

“Thorne & Cross are clever. The plot they create reads effortlessly, and they make us laugh and cringe and widen our eyes, looking away from the text at times to say, “Oh, no you didn’t.” But they did.”
~ Michael Aronovitz, author of Alice Walks and Witch of the Wood

When the Blue Lady Walks…

Since 1887, Cliffhouse Lodge has been famous for its luxurious accommodations, fine dining… and its ghosts. Overlooking Blue Lady Lake, nestled among tall pines, Cliffhouse has just been renovated by its owners, Teddy and Adam Bellamy, and their daughter, Sara.

Cliffhouse has not always been a place of rest and respite, though. Over the years it has served many vices, from rum-running to prostitution – and although the cat houses have been replaced by a miniature golf course and carousel, Cliffhouse retains its dark history; darkest during the Roaring Twenties, when a serial killer called the Bodice Ripper terrorized the town, and a phantom, the Blue Lady, was said to walk when murder was imminent.

Death Walks With Her…

Now, there’s a new killer on the loose, and the Blue Lady sightings have returned. The Bellamys are losing maids, and guests are being tormented by disembodied whispers, wet phantom footprints, and the blood-chilling shrieks of mad laughter that echo through the halls of Cliffhouse in the dead of night.

The little mountain town of Cliffside is the perfect hunting ground for a serial killer… and the Blue Lady. Police Chief Jackson Ballou has bodies piling up, and between the murders and the mysteries, he can hardly pursue his romance with Polly Owen. And Sara Bellamy may lose her true love before they even have their first kiss.

The Crimson Corset


As promised, with the release of The Cliffhouse Haunting – which can be purchased now at Amazon – I am disclosing a teaser of my upcoming solo project titled The Crimson Corset. The Crimson Corset will be finished later this summer.

Coming this Summer

The Crimson Corset

 

Welcome to Crimson Cove

Sheltered by ancient redwoods, nestled in mountains overlooking the California coast, the cozy village of Crimson Cove has it all: sophisticated retreats, fine dining, a beautiful lake, and a notorious nightclub, The Crimson Corset. It seems like a perfect place to relax and get close to nature. But not everything in Crimson Cove is natural.

When Cade Colter moves to town to live with his older brother, he expects it to be peaceful to the point of boredom. But he quickly learns that after the sun sets and the fog rolls in, the little tourist town takes on a whole new kind of life – and death.

Darkness at the Edge of Town

Renowned for its wild parties and history of debauchery, The Crimson Corset looms on the edge of town, inviting patrons to sate their most depraved desires and slake their darkest thirsts. Proprietor Gretchen VanTreese has waited centuries to annihilate the Old World vampires on the other side of town and create a new race – a race that she alone will rule. When she realizes Cade Colter has the key that will unlock her plan, she begins laying an elaborate trap that will put everyone around him in mortal danger.

Blood Wars

The streets are running red with blood, and as violence and murder ravage the night, Cade must face the darkest forces inside himself, perhaps even abandon his own humanity, in order to protect what he loves.

DEAD GIRLS – Available Now


000Deadgirls1

DEAD GIRLS is available! This is the 6th installment in The Ghosts of Ravencrest series (and one of my favorites!) This installment introduces Eric’s (deceased) wife, Isobel, The Bride of Ravencrest, and my personal favorite, Violet LeBlanc, known by her admirers as The White Violet. Check out DEAD GIRLS now at Amazon. 

The Ghosts of Ravencrest #6: Dead Girls

Restless Spirits

The spirits of Ravencrest are restless and governess Belinda Moorland finds herself in a maze of ever-growing mystery and danger as she uncovers the shocking secrets of her new home. With the help of butler Grant Phister, she realizes the three blood-drenched nuns who patrol the east wing, the little girl in red, and the handsome night visitor aren’t the only spirits walking the halls of Ravencrest. There is the White Violet, a silent movie actress, and the Bride of Ravencrest, both mad, both lurking. And then there is the ghost haunting the dark and eerie indoor pool …

Sometimes the Living are More Dangerous than the Dead…

And the dead aren’t the only ones who have their eyes on Belinda. As her former roommate, Randi Tucker, pays a perilous surprise visit, the house administrator, Mrs. Heller, and limo driver, Walter Hardwicke, are making dangerous plans … plans that will have harrowing consequences for Belinda.

Darkness is Gathering

As the mansion’s terrifying secrets unravel, Belinda becomes convinced that she’s stepped into a world where reality has no rules. Even as she and her employer, the handsome and mysterious Eric Manning grow closer, darkness is gathering … on both sides of the Veil.

For the previous installments, visit my library.
