Overview

Founded in the 1830s, the fictional town of Mapleview has the reputation of being blanketed by a sentience of paranormal activity and urban legends. The Trivelli House; one of the oldest, historical residences in town; has been owned by the family for generations. But it, too, has its legend. Mary, a member of the family, purchases the house from her aunt and is bound and determined to rid the property of any stigmatism or reputation, as it is the house she has always wanted since a little girl. But a temporary guest moves in with Mary and soon disappears!
This is only the first of a series of disappearances throughout the town. And although the Mapleview police have its most experienced detectives assigned to the case, they can provide no answers. The person responsible couldn't be very far. Or perhaps the answer is something supernatural. Maybe the disappearances are related to the dark, centuries-old history of Mapleview.

Meet the Author

Tom Raimbault resides in the Chicago land area with his wife and two daughters. When not writing, he works as a lab technician at a telecommunications company and is self-described on his resume as a "technology professional" who has worked with cellular & IP infrastructure, biomedical equipment, emergency two-way radios and computer hardware.
Tom began to produce weird writings back in 2000 while working the graveyard shift. The nightly edits were emailed to a small collection of coworkers who looked forward to something unusual to keep them awake or humored.
This practice was ended when he was moved to a different shift. Sadly, his enjoyment of writing was forgotten for several years, until the autumn of 2007, when old friends received a "blast from the past" email with the recognizable words, "Hello All". The strange writings and short stories had resumed and a personal website was soon to follow.
In autumn of 2009, Tom published his first book, Freaked out Horror (a collection of short stories), through Create Space and was soon available on Amazon and Kindle. The work has been temporarily unpublished and will be re-released in 2011 with many additions, revisions and improvements.
In a commitment to produce higher quality writings, Tom no longer produces daily short stories on his website, but keeps in touch with his readers by posting to his blog, daily. Check out his website that includes the blog at: http://sites.google.com/site/tomraimbaultwritings/
Tom is always open to new friends on Facebook where he shares photos from his nature hikes, family vacations and any random thoughts throughout the day. Feel free to request him as a friend on Facebook!
