Wicked Moon, a suspenseful romance novel with a paranormal flair, 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.
