Our family lived among the dead for nearly a decade. There we all came to understand that we are not alone, and there is something beyond our mortal existence. Having graduated from high school in 1976, I attended Chatham College in Pittsburgh, PA. Graduating in 1980 with a degree in Philosophy and English, it was during my senior year when my mother announced the sale of the farm was pending. I was heartbroken. In spite of the trials, it was “home” and I loved it. Returning to Rhode Island, we were there only a few weeks before relocating to Georgia, long enough to pack and say goodbye. It was over. Though we abandoned our place in the country, it never left us. Memory is poignant and powerful.
I’ve spent my life since engaging in a variety of endeavors. Georgia did not suit me. After seven years, I went home to R.I. Though I have always been a writer, I have likewise explored my own creative abilities. As a professional singer, songwriter, musician and actor, my time has been full of adventures and interesting characters. For more than twenty years, I was a cast member with The Theatre Company of Rhode Island, performing on the stage of The Assembly Theater, the historical centerpiece of Harrisville. For the final ten years I lived in R.I., I was employed as a youth counselor at Harmony Hill School in Chepachet, and lived in the village of Harmony, in a quaint cottage on Waterman Lake, also known as paradise on a pond.
In 2007, I began writing the manuscript which later evolved into the trilogy “House of Darkness House of Light”, and I again relocated to Georgia to be with my family while embarking upon such a major project involving all of them, as well. This task has proved to be quite an excursion in its own right, spawning several nightmares while we exhumed our memories of the dead. Often painful, it has also been a healing process, as each of us revisited a past impacting our present, clearly mapping the future of a family. There was no escaping unscathed, though we thought we had successfully done so at the time. This is a memoir whose time has come. Many have spoken and written about fragments of our story. Now is the time to tell the whole truth about what happened in the farmhouse alive with death. We spent an illuminating decade among the spirits. It is a tale worth telling because it is true. We are prepared to disclose our secrets, and more than thirty years hence, the world is finally ready to receive the message contained within our experience. It is nothing less than a revelation.
