Ethel was looking through her book of spells early that Sunday afternoon when the buzzer sounded. She got up and walked to the wall panel. Continue reading “Chap. 6—Unrestrained: A Paranormal Psychological Thriller (Rancor, #2)”
Ender House Floor Plan
This floor plan is for the Hart-Cluett Mansion, Troy, New York. It was built in 1827. I’m using it as my floor plan for Ender House.
“Johnny, I thought I was the only one crazy enough to work late on a Saturday,” Det. Haley Wanat said walking to her desk with a folder in hand. “Is it the McGee case?” Continue reading “Chap. 5—Unrestrained: A Paranormal Psychological Thriller (Rancor, #2)”
The sun was low on the western horizon when she drove past the realtor’s For Sale sign and down the long secluded driveway to Sandpiper Bluff Apartments. She slowed the car when the dilapidated three-story 1899 converted sanatorium came into view. Once magnificent and inviting, it now looked dark and ominous. No lights shined warmly in the windows; there was not even a working outdoor light to illuminate the front entrance. She was the only one now living in the building, which was beginning to look its age. She felt a sense of foreboding as if something bad was going to happen. Maybe not that night, but sometime soon.

She looked in the rearview mirror and adjusted the green polyester scarf tied around her head. She picked up her slouchy hobo handbag and got out of her old jalopy.

*Reposted from my other website
This is totally off-topic, and I’m still searching for a logical explanation for it, but I saw something strange in the sky the other day.
The date was Saturday, July 16, 2016. I was driving southwest toward Bangor, Michigan just before 10 p.m. to pick up a son from work. I’m always looking at the stars in the sky, wondering if I can find Jupiter, Venus, or Mars. When I looked to the west, I saw a star pattern of maybe a dozen stars above the horizon.
