Wicked Moon – A Suspenseful Romance with a Paranormal Flair
BASED ON A REAL MANSION IN CAPE COD
“In 1863 a wealthy sea captain, Sam Eldridge, built a 19th Century mansion on the bluff of Cape Cod Bay. Secrets and lies not only destroyed his family, but led to the death of his seventeen-year-old daughter, Belinda, when she fell off the bluff.
According to folklore, Belinda’s ghost strolled the widow’s walk waiting for her love, Joshua, to return from the sea. Over decades, the mansion was handed down generations. After Hattie Hubbard went into a nursing home, the mansion suffered grave damage from neglect. When Hattie passed away, she bequeathed the mansion to her niece, Kelli Goddard.
Determined to restore the mansion as her aunt had wished, Kelli returns to Manomet. She didn’t expect resistance from Rod Kesson, a land developer, who claimed he owned the property. The situation is further complicated when she becomes the target of numerous threats putting her life in danger.
How many secrets does the mansion hold? Did Captain Eldridge hide rare coins on the property? Was the house inhabited by ghosts? Will Kelli falter under the pressure of selling the mansion for millions? Or, will she stand her ground, risking her life to hold on to her beloved Manomet Mansion?”

Profits from Wicked Moon to be Donated to The Simes House Foundation
Wicked Moon is purely a work of fiction and labor of love. The setting is a real house called the Simes House. The location is the wonderful coastal village of Manomet in the Town of Plymouth, Massachusetts which is ringed by the Pine Hills, peppered with ponds, and fronted by Cape Cod Bay.
The roads, landmarks, and businesses in Wicked Moon all exist. Known to natives as the Manomet Mansion, over the years she fell into disrepair. In 2010 the town proposed an article to tear her down and build subsidized housing. Villagers argued to Town Meeting that the Manomet Village Master Plan looked to preserve the village’s unique, historical features, and to create a village green in the vicinity of Point and State Roads.
Town Meeting declined the new housing, the non-profit Simes House Foundation was established, and a $1.5 million Community Preservation grant voted by Town Meeting toward historical restoration.
All profits from Wicked Moon will be donated to the Simes House Foundation.
