I live in Ingersoll, Ontario and enjoy writing my novels with a link to my area. Wampus Springs is my debut novel and is set in the fictional town of Ridgeway, Ontario. Ridgeway is a combination of all my favorite places I grew up in. It's a collage of Ridgetown, Rondeau park and every other water front paradise Southern Ontario has to offer.
Summer Demure — a police officer on stress leave because of a brutal abduction that nearly took her life — is elated when her abductor is finally captured and she's called upon to ID him. Everything seems about to come to an end. However, before she's able to make the ID, her husband is viciously stabbed and her daughter taken away.
The ransom note has no dollar figure — only one demand.
No matter how hard Lori tries to live a normal life, the scar on her neck is a constant reminder of just how lucky she was that stormy day back in Wampus Springs. But if her nightmares hold any meaning, her luck seems about to run out.
