The House on Terminal Island

Ronald R. Schmidt

Jenny Watson is a divorced mother of two. Her daughter, Grace, is seventeen; her son, Eugene, fifteen, and they live together in a rat-infested, dilapidated apartment in the middle of gangland. Jenny wishes things were different. She wishes she could move her children to a safe neighborhood with a good school district, where their lives could be filled with promise. Who knew the lottery would be the answer to her prayers? After Jenny surprisingly strikes it rich, she's able to move her family to Terminal Island, California, where she purchases a dream home on the top of a hill. The price is too good to pass up, so the family moves immediately into a veritable mansion in paradise. It doesn't take long, however, for Jenny to realize her paradise may be hell. She and Grace are soon attacked by unseen forces that are singularly attracted to women. As the violent ghostly attacks escalate, Jenny has no choice but to call in a paranormal specialist. They discover it's just as they feared: a demonic spirit lives within the walls of their home, and Terminal Island holds a terrible secret. Who lived in the house prior to the Watsons, and what happened to them? The truth may be more than Jenny can bear as she watches her dreams turn into unimaginable nightmares.
