Spite House

Book one of The Spite House Chronicles

Welcome to Spite House

There’s an island up in Gold Country at the northern end of Snapdragon Lake. It’s named Manchester for the family that owns it, but the locals call it Spite Island. There’s a single lonely mansion on that island and a group of authors have been invited to write about its ghosts and its mysteries. But the real mystery is, who will survive this luxurious but deadly retreat?

A Cursed House

Not long after the Civil War, Ruthia and Solomon Manchester bought a lonely island in northern California where they built a magnificent home and a resort that became a renowned Gilded Age getaway.

But the locals shunned the place, calling it Spite Island. They said it was cursed.

Today, only Agnes Manchester and her companion occupy the property. Having fallen on hard times, Agnes has agreed to reopen the resort on the condition that she and her ancestral ghosts are undisturbed in their private home.

Before renovations begin, she invites a group of authors to stay in the house and write about its history.

As the guests explore the secrets of the mansion, they never suspect what awaits them in the shifting shadows.

Spite House has deadly plans of its own…
