Peterson Estate

Peterson Estate is my favorite book. When you read it, you'll understand why.

The main character, Emily Peterson, grew up with normal dreams and what she thought as a normal life.....until her aunt (Jane) died, leaving her more than just the castle where she grew up.

The castle is haunted and located in Goodview, Pennsylvania....Yes, haunted but that's not all. The castle really wasn't meant to be, built on land that used to belong to the Indians. A group of men came along and took it from them. Why were the Indian tribe there? To protect the land, the land itself but to protect the people from the land, from one pacific thing that's on the land.

I began writing this book when I was only 12 years old! It was just released last year! So you can see why I'm sensitive about this piece. It has been with me almost all my life and I wasn't ever able to let it go. Yeah, there was one time when I almost did. I lost the original and thought I'd never be able to rewrite it so I tossed out the notes that I still had. Years passed and Emily "haunted" my mind. I could hear her voice telling me to keep writing, give her a chance to live. I don't regret a single day that I slaved over the story, giving Emily her life back!

Peterson Estate is available through Amazon among other places. If you can't afford it, check out the library and ask them to order you a copy. But if you do that, please make sure you share it with others!

Thank you!
