Sussex County Hauntings and Other Strange Phenomena


"Sussex County Hauntings and Other Strange Phenomena" 

Customer Reviews

Finally a book that focuses on, in my opinion, the most beautiful part of the state. I was not born in Sussex County, was born one county away but relocated here because of its tranquility and rural setting. Add that to my love of horror and some great local lore and you have a great book that focuses on the counties local legends. I recommend this book to anyone interested in a part of Jersey that is often forgotten due to the state's diversity with our famous coastline and NYC/Philly influences but up here in the western corner, we have our own unique stories to tell, and so do our ghosts.

"If you love the paranormal , you will love this book! Each section combines history and chills!

A must have!"

"I was thrilled to see a book about the hauntings in my county! This book does not disappoint! I learned about so many new haunted places. Hoping for another one soon with some Montague stories!"

This video teaser was created by my daughter, Viktoria-Leigh, for her college project.

The whole family, even our dogs, got into the act and made our acting debuts. It was a fun time.

"Dream a little Dream" Customer Reviews

Amazing book that will keep you on your toes in suspense until the very end.


I downloaded this book and thought I would read for a few minutes before starting my work on Sunday afternoon. I read for fifteen minutes and then I was hooked. I didn't put it down until it was finished, three hours later. I look forward to the next book from Eleanor.

and yet another...

I never write reviews for fiction books, because I rarely read fiction

anymore, but here goes... Dream a little Dream had me riveted from the first page. Whether you need a perfect vacation book or the perfect staycation book, this is a must read to escape the blah...Blah...BLAH of our daily lives. Yes it includes romance, but it is not corny. There is drama...can we really get enough? There is vivid character development, but never too much info (just enough keep you locked in on the edge of your seat). At 120 pages or so, it is a low commitment read that will grab you by the collar (especially the last 20 pages) and make you beg for 500 more pages. So yes, I enjoyed the book and I am sure you will, too.
