New book release: Don’t Look Back featuring my story: “The Elusive Pettibone”

Don't Look BackI’m excited to announce the publication of my latest story, “The Elusive Pettibone” as part of the anthology Don’t Look Back: Thirteen Terrifying Tales of Urban Folklore from Dark Moon Press.

“The Elusive Pettibone” is my origin story for the White Lady of Union Graveyard set in Easton, Connecticut. The legend of the White Lady is a popular case studied and written about by the renowned paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren. I first learned of the legend while attending one of their speaking events in Stamford, CT in the late 1990s. As there is no official record of who exactly the White Lady was, I found it a great opportunity to explore this subject that is both familiar to me and located close to home.

The story follows the tragic tale of the slightly off-balance Angela Pettibone on a life-long search for her lost son, Henry, whom no one, not even her husband, believed to have existed. The story includes a subtle nod to another of the Warrens’s mot famous cases, Annabelle, featuring a doll with red hair. By complete coincidence, Annabelle is now a major motion picture that was just released in theaters this past weekend.

It was a pleasure working with editor David Lingbloom during the writing process, which coincided with the first of two neck surgeries I have endured over the past ten months. I appreciate his patience in working with me as I pushed through a physically debilitating phase in my life.
