The Kavanagh House
Book 1, The Aeturnis Machine Series

Living in a mechanized house controlled by the dead, vengeful creator.


Built at the threshold of the steam-driven, Gilded Age, The Kavanagh House is filled with mechanical wonders, mechanized puzzles, hidden places, and seven death traps. A century later, Parker discovers the journal of Eleanor Kavanagh inside a puzzle box and wrapped in a cryptic note: My father’s house is haunted and it’s my fault.

Vincent Ferrari, the ruthless, ambitious man who built the house, is destined to remain with it, long after his death. Vincent mistakes Parker for Eleanor, who finally lured him into one of his own deadly traps. Now he wants revenge.

Parker enlists the help of the mysterious Mason to find Vincent’s body. Together, while avoiding the vindictive spirit, they search for Eleanor’s hidden journal pages, for the information they need.

Susan Dayley, author

Some writers find exotic places where they can unburden their inner story. Others, like Stephen King, transform worlds from tiny attic spaces. One or two, like Hemingway, find paradise and fame. Most of us make do with a corner here or there and write until the tips of our fingers have callouses, catching time between jobs, family demands, and promoting on social media. But we all humbly call ourselves, writers. What we do does not come because of fame or location. It’s not even dependent on current trends or childhood dreams. Writing is as much a part of us as the color of our eyes. We have no choice, it’s just what we have to do.
