Thirtysomething Colquitt and Walter Kennedy live in a charming, peaceful suburb of newly bustling Atlanta, Georgia.

Disappointed by their diminished privacy, Colquitt and Walter soon realize something more is wrong with the house next door. Surely the house can’t be haunted, yet it seems to destroy the goodness of every person who comes to live in it, until the entire heart of this friendly neighborhood threatens to be torn apart.

Kirkus Reviews agrees, "In a coming-of-age story that's well paced and layered with emotion, Mills creates moments of true suspense through guileless prose as he unearths a family tragedy." Anyone who enjoys being scared, or who wants to probe into whether ghosts are real, will add The Empty Lot Next Door to the "must read" list. Award-winning book When Arthur Mills wrote The Empty Lot Next Door, some neighbors and even family quit speaking to him; they didn't want to acknowledge the local element of his true-life story of ghosts, suicide, and bullying, but that didn't stop his new book from winning awards.
