Overview

After she becomes pregnant with twins, Olivia Bauer is haunted by ghostly dreams of dead soldiers. Her husband Michael passes them off as nothing more than the result of indigestion. He doesn't believe in ghosts.

When Olivia holds Griffin, her newborn baby boy, a strange feeling of dread comes over her. When she holds Teddy, his fraternal twin, she feels nothing but joy.

As the boys grow, their dissimilarity in looks and behavior becomes increasingly apparent. Griffin keeps to himself, playing alone with Mr. Budge, the ventriloquist dummy his grandmother gave him for Christmas. He grows fat and jealous of his brother, who's athletic and popular with schoolmates.

After Teddy dies from a mysterious fall while hiking with Griffin, Olivia and Michael move to an area next to an abandoned military base. Griffin has left home to live with a relative.

As Olivia explores the ruins of old Fort Ord, her recurring nightmare is about to become a reality.

Karen Truesdell Riehl's published works include a memoir of her secret life with the actor George C.Scott, Love and Madness, and two novels, Saturday Night Dance Club and 666 Coven Road.

Meet the Author

Karen Truesdell Riehl's writing achievements are remarkable, given her lifelong battle with dyslexia. She was unable to read until the age of ten. Her published works now include a memoir, Love and Madness: My Private Years with George C. Scott, telling of her 30-year hidden liaison with the international film star, five novels, eight plays and a radio comedy series, The Quibbles, available from ArtAge Publications at http://www.seniortheatre.com/product/the-quibbles-radio-shows/. Her children's play, Alice in Cyberland, was an award winner in the National Southwest Writers Contest.

The Ghosts of Fort Ord was inspired by living for a month near the abandoned military base.

After having lived for several years in Terre Haute, Karen was inspired to write a story about scandals in a fictional small town in Indiana, Freedom's Sins.

Saturday Night Dance Club, was inspired by a true story of four couples, from the 1900's to 1930's, touched by the Great War, organized crime, the Depression and the threat of another war, finding sanctuary in their weekly dance club.

In the romance novel, Hello Again, Shannon Taggert falls in love with Nate, a graduate student teaching assistant. But there's another woman in Nate's life, Tally, the daughter of Walter, his mentor and benefactor. Before meeting Shannon, as Walter lay dying, Nate promised to marry his daughter.

Drawing from her own experience, Karen wrote Bad Girl: A Play. The Safe Haven Home for Unwed Mothers provides shelter from a judgmental society, but reveals its hypocrisy as well. The young women from all levels of society, rich and poor, share only their shame.
