About the Book

An eclectic assortment of humanity, with all their foibles and failings, lived in the house on Moody Avenue over a period of ninety years. I tell their stories.

Lisette, her unshakable faith sustaining her, is undeterred in the face of adversity; Julia, a social-climbing snob, sees her world crumble when her children marry inappropriately; Clarence, a Casper Milquetoast bank clerk, absconds with a quarter of a million dollars; Frances, a country girl, comes to the big city to marry a rich man; Sammy, a black man, passes for white.

Beatnik squatters, high on LSD, burn down the condemned ninety-year-old house, leaving it naught but a precious memory in the hearts of those who once sought its shelter.

About the Author

About the Author:
Having had no more than a smattering of classes at Pierce Junior College, my qualifications as an author are nil. I am eighty-eight-years-old, and my only degree is 98.6. I have been, as it were, trespassing on the hallowed ground of the literati.

Where the story of the house on Moody Avenue came from, I don’t know. It seems to have arrived on my computer screen, unbidden. I have had a jolly time developing character and plot as they presented themselves and am quite smitten with the notion that these stories might attract a reading audience.
