About the Book
Harry accepts a teaching job at his children’s private school and takes on a student assistant, Isabel, with whom he quickly develops a close relationship as they delve into the history of the mansion and their search for information drags them to a series of eerie abandoned locations. Meanwhile, Olivia confronts a terminal illness with a radical change in lifestyle as one depraved act sets off a battery of consequences for both Ryan and Sophie, perpetrator and victim. Harry struggles to separate fact from fiction as his investigatory skills, parenting skills, and restraint are continually tested.
Since February 3, 2012, I have been exploring, photographing and documenting abandoned locations. Most of my exploits take place in the state of Ohio but I have also traveled to other states including Michigan, Indiana, Pennsylvania, New York and Virginia. I feel that it is a shame to allow buildings to fall into disrepair and eventually cease to exist without properly documenting their histories. Capturing them in an abandoned state also provides the opportunity to show how man-made structures withstand nature and other factors once man no longer has use for them.
