During the restoration of a 1926 house, I was seeing many hauntings, and that motivated me to write this book. At first, I thought I might have just been seeing and hearing things. After researching and bringing in a paranormal team, I found out that Al Capone had gotten the house for his mistress and their two daughters, Mary and Ann. I haven't found any proof that he ever bought the house, but all the evidence I have gotten has been through the old-timers that have lived in this neighborhood since childhood. The house is haunted by the mistress, Mary Ann Brown, a.k.a. Vera. I have encountered many hauntings in my life, and this house has given me many special gifts.

Cradit comes Empire of Shadows, Volume 5 in the bestselling witches family saga, The House of Crimson & Clover. Not a standalone story, Empire's plot makes the most sense only after having the prior volumes. Two dynasties clash for power. Only one empire can emerge. In a time now legend, a sacred vow united the Farværdig and the Tuatha Dé Danann. One race born of fire, the other risen from nature. Together, they enjoyed centuries of peace and prosperity, under the protective blanket of this hallowed oath. But when war came to the doorstep of the Tuatha, the Farværdig turned their backs. Expelled from their lands, those Tuatha who were not extinguished went into hiding, later re-emerging in secret as the Quinlans. The broken vow took its toll on the Farværdig, dividing the race into two factions: those willing to fall to heel of new restrictive laws, and rebels determined to restore the peaceful values of their kind. In the midst of years of strife that follows, a Prophecy emerged, promising hope. Unite the races once more, and right the ancient wrong. As the shadows of age and myth are exposed, the Deschanels find themselves deeply enmeshed in this war. Their bloodline and futures closely intertwined with both races, each member of the family must uncover their own vital role in fulfilling the Prophecy or risk decimation.
