House of the Golden Butterfly

House of Restless Souls Book One

Claire Westcott recently inherited a house. A house she inherited from her estranged grandmother—Rose. A house with a deadly secret.

There is more to Foxworth House than dirty towels.

Lacey Marshall hates flying and drives whenever she needs to take a trip. Once a year she drives from a work convention in Las Vegas to her home in Denver, CO.

She’s never had trouble with the drive until this year when Lacey is caught in a freak snowstorm.

The storm forces Lacey to stop and spend the night in a creepy bed-and-breakfast on a lonely road in the middle of the desert.

Her room is dirty, the towels are moldy, and the clerk was rude, but Lacey has no other choice.

There’s more to this bed-and-breakfast than just bad service.

The bed-and-breakfast has a horrifying secret. One that reveals itself to Lacey after she checks into her room and that secret will change her life forever.

About me

It has been my passion to write good stories since I was handed my first Nancy Drew book at the age of ten. I've been writing stories and imagining other worlds since I read that first book, and I was determined to publish those stories one day. 

I was born in a small town (truth) in southern New Jersey. Where there’s only 1 traffic light, an ice cream shop, and a post office run by an old lady who still thinks I’m twelve when I visit home.

While in high school, I found a love of historical romance novels. Sneaking them around my teachers and parents. I got caught once and had the book taken away from me for the rest of the day. I was sent home with a note, and my mom shocked me when she said she was happy I was reading and didn’t care what it was.

I have the greatest husband and supporter in the world. He has a love of books like me, but he would never touch romance. Except! He reads all of my writing giving me critical feedback. How awesome is that?

I hope you join me on this journey through my personal twilight zone. You never know where you may go. I love writing dark fiction (In real life, I'm a goofball and I do a wicked imitation of Dean Winchester from Supernatural) about the dark side of humanity with paranormal elements, suspense, and romance in the mix. I love strong heroes and even stronger heroines. 

Thanks for stopping by!
