Overview

Mel and Ellen Jones have been forced to address the harsh reality of becoming a family with no income, thus a choice to move or lose everything must be made. Mel's parents who reside in a rural community in Maplesville, Oregon welcome them home with opened arms, so happy that their son and his family have made the decision to move back to Mel's birthplace. Within two years the family regains financial independence and is once again able to find a place of their own. With little trouble they luck up on an old yet stately home only a few miles from Mel's parent's home. Ellen is immediately drawn to the grandeur the house possesses and her mind encompasses what the home was and will soon be again. In her efforts to make the house much more than just a home for her family they soon learn this is a house with many secrets and a questionable history, a home sharing a mysterious kinship with this special family, a home which seems to possess them in more ways than even they are aware. Their son Keith is content in his new environment; satisfied with the exploration it offers while their daughter Lisa is tormented and on edge, refusing to get too comfortable within the walls as the house seems to come alive with its residual energy dead-set on claiming it's inhabitants.

Meet the Author

Born the youngest of seven children Delilah had what most would consider a magical childhood. She was blessed with five other siblings who saw after her, trying their best to keep her out of trouble or harms way. Delilah was spoiled but not obnoxious, a true Tom boy, full of mischief and oblivious to life from any other standpoint than that of a child.

Delilah got married in 1970 when she was sixteen years old to the still, 'love of her life,' Danny. Within eight years she was helping to raise their own two sons. Being a mother proved to be a very rewarding experience. Making up short stories at bedtime became second nature and such a treat for her family. Fortunately she was blessed with a gift for gab and an expansive imagination and knack for creating stories.

Delilah began her journey of creative writing in the early 1970s. It served as an outlet for self expression as well as a window for allowing her mind to explore those mysteries and stories which at times seemed to be bursting to be heard. Hence, a writing career was born.

After completing school in 1972 Delilah attended night classes to enhance her education in computer, word processing and accounting.

Initially Delilah's self expression was a hobby shared only with close friends and family. After years of writing then filing her works away she decided to try another yet to be explored avenue. With much prodding from her friends and her husband, who by the way was and still is her biggest fan, she decided to publish some of her work in an attempt to reach a larger audience.

You may now be enjoying her first published non-fiction work, 'Marriage, a Barrel of Laughs (Unless You're the One in the Barrel)', based on funny events collected throughout the course of her still thriving 41 plus years of marriage as well as her most recent fiction creation, 'The House Warming' fresh off the presses, which tells a story of what happens when the occult and the paranormal collide.

Watch for Delilah's other macabre novels now in the processing stages, 'Be Still My Love', 'Michael' and 'I Fell in Love With A Witch'.

Delilah hopes you find yourself forgetting your daily agenda as you get lost in the pages she found so much pleasure in writing for your reading enjoyment and entertainment.
