Another Author Packing for the Conference! Number 8!


 Eileen Magill is the author of one of our latest releases, the spine-tingling HOUSE OF HOMICIDE! When I read Eileen's submission, I truly could not put it down! She really keeps the tension wound tight, and, honest to goodness, I totally figured wrong on the 'who dun it?' factor!




Eileen is an occupational health and safety specialist with a background in criminal justice, emergency medical response, and rescue.  She lives with her comedian sister (retired but still so darned funny), two rambunctious dogs, and a continual flow of spirits and entities in her house.  Though she's a California native, her heart is set in the Pacific Northwest.







A young widow...


Cindy is reeling from the loss of her husband, suddenly a single mother of two children and the sole caretaker for her aging aunt. She finds the perfect house to start anew.

A house with a past...

A rundown house in the Silicon Valley suburbs needs a lot of work, but Cindy is willing to take it on to get her dream house. Disclosure documents indicate that someone had died in the house, but they don't tell the whole story of the house's evil past.

A call for help from beyond the grave...

Cindy's dreams are invaded by a woman who shows Cindy the horrible murders that had taken place in the house. Her message to Cindy: Your family is next. When repairs on the house uncover the missing murder weapon, Cindy begins to believe that the strange woman is something more than just a dream. Using her journalism skills to research the property, the dark past of the house is revealed: a series of murders starting when the house was built more than 40 years earlier. But her meddling into the history awakens a killer's need to keep the past quiet, and Cindy is thrust into a struggle to find the killer before she and her family become the next victims.

I am so looking forward to meeting Eileen in Vegas...what a thrill!

I'm anxioud to meet Eileen too. In fact, I'm eager to see all the OTP authors, those I know and those I've yet to meet. I've read her book too and it's a page turner.

Ellen's book is next on my reading list. I'm also looking forward to meeting her--she's practically a neighbor in my Northern California neighborhood. Also, Billie, the banner with our book covers looks really slick! So cool that you were able to figure it out. Sorry it took a shout out to notice!
