The yard had a sickening silence around it—one that she had felt inside the house many times, especially at night. There was a light mist in the air as well, which was hugely unusual for that time of day. Then approximately, seventy-five feet near the edge of the property that led into an area of land densely populated by fruit-bearing trees and overgrown brush, she saw Theo advancing.
His white shirt was muddied with dirt and his short, black pants were darted with tiny prickles. He was sweating profusely.
“Where have you been?” Andrea asked curiously. “And where’s Rosie?”
The closer he got to her, Andrea could see that the pupils of his eyes had an abnormally darker hue and the expression on his face was blank and unreadable.
“I saw her walk through the family room and out onto the deck,” he started. “I thought she was just going to sit outside, but after a while I noticed she never came back in. That’s when I went to look for her.”
Andrea was listening intently and watching the mannerism that didn’t appear to belong to her husband.
“I didn’t say anything to you because I thought I’d find her playing in the yard. After I didn’t see her, I went further off into the property to look for her, but I have no idea where she went.” He shrugged.
“My God! This can’t be happening!” Andrea exclaimed, worrying less about Theo’s odd behavior and more about the child’s sudden disappearance. “We have to find her!”
A grandfather’s love for his grandchild is put to the ultimate test.
Don’t be afraid. It’s just… Them.

Mira Cullen is all grown up now and has left the confines of her ever-so-haunted childhood home. She and brother, Wade, have moved away to pursue their passions, but life for Mira has turned out quite differently from that of her brother.
After returning home for a family visit, Mira finds herself in front of the old Ferguson house again – a place she has blatantly avoided since the entire life-altering experience of fifteen years earlier. The only thing is…there are new residents now, but not the kind she would have ever expected to see.
Her six-year-old daughter, Rosie has an incredible bond with her grandfather, but no one ever dreams that the little girl has a special gift just like her mother and will be the bait an angry ghost uses to settle a score long overdue. She is in terrible danger, but no one knows it and the love of her grandfather will be tested to the highest extreme.

“Sunbeams from the Heart – A Collection of Twelve Romantic Short Stories” recently featured in “The Alloa and Hillfoots Advertiser”, Clackmannanshire, Scotland, as “Stories with a romantic tale”! Alloa is near Stirling, where I was born.
“Sunbeams from the Heart” is proving popular around the world. “I read the book in one sitting today,” wrote an Amazon reviewer. “I found the book to be so delightful because Short stories you can read and not have to wait until you have time to finish the book, you can go back and start a new one. Her descriptions of The Bahamas and Scotland were brilliant. I can’t wait to get her new book. I love short stories and she will publish a new one soon, I hope.”
The Bahamas and Scotland are also the main settings in my upcoming romantic suspense novel “Love at Sunset”, along with scenes in Fort Lauderdale, New York, London and Devon. The novel grew out of my short story of the same name, first published in “The Lady” magazine, London, England, and now featured in “Sunbeams from the Heart”.
“Sunbeams from the Heart” is available as an e-book and in paperback (regular and large print) from Amazon online stores around the world.
