ABOUT Madeleine McLaughlin

Madeleine McLaughlin
I love the woods although I hardly ever get to go there now that I live in a big city. I've been writing for about twenty years, mostly poems and short stories. I'm working on longer works now. I love to read about people and their childhoods, it's a passion of mine.



When Kevin learns of his mountain town's evil past, he must struggle to understand his father's part in it and how it affects himself.

I just wanted to write a horror story with a sculptor in it, set in a remote place. The story is completely made up.

This is a unique story. The author piques the reader's interest from the very beginning, teasing about a secret door that has been concealed from Kevin ever since his birth. The gradual build-up and pacing of the story works well. Though some parts proved to be predictable, the ending was very unexpected. Overall, I enjoyed this tale and would recommend it to others who like something a little different.
