The Drifter free pdf A girl and her mother try to make a new home in a house with a chilling pastThough Carolyn's mother never expected to inherit Glanton House from long-lost Aunt Hazel, she wants to make the most of the opportunity. Planning to turn the creaky waterfront mansion into a hotel, she moves Carolyn down to the seashore. But this house has a nightmarish history. As the story goes, Captain Glanton spent so long at sea that his wife, believing him dead, took a new lover. When her husband finally returned, her new love--a mysterious drifter--brutally murdered him, and she went mad with grief. It is said her ghost still haunts Glanton House, awaiting her husband's return. Carolyn is terrified: Are the strange stains that cover the attic walls the marks of a ghost? And who is Joss Whitcomb, the icy-palmed handyman who wants a job at the new hotel? And why is no one sure what actually happened to Aunt Hazel? The answers to Carolyn's questions lie in the sea, and in its chilling siren song. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Richie Tankersley Cusick including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author's personal collection.

About Richie Tankersley Cusick

For three decades, Richie Tankersley Cusick (b. 1952) has been one of the most prominent authors of horror fiction for young adults. Born in New Orleans, Louisiana--home to some of the country's most ancient ghosts--Cusick grew up in a small bayou town called Barataria. Inspired by the eerie Louisiana swampland, she began writing at a young age. After college, Cusick took a job at Hallmark and moved to a haunted house in Kansas City, where she began work on her first novel, "Evil on the Bayou," whose success allowed her to leave her job and begin writing fulltime. Since then, Cusick has written more than two dozen novels. She and her three dogs live in North Carolina, where Cusick writes on an antique roll-top desk that was once owned by a funeral director. The desk is, of course, haunted.
