Stephen W. Harris has been chasing ghosts, and plagued by ghosts, since his boyhood in a coastal New England town. Little, if anything, is known about his upbringing other than the fact that he suffered a nocturnal dream life plagued by - you guessed it, ghosts. This book, and the ones to follow shortly, is an attempt to rid himself of these terrible occurrences to which he has been a most unwilling observer.
In Shadows and Light at the Winkler Mansion, a dynamic and authentic friendship between two twelve-year-old boys is tested when it pushes up against the supernatural after a visit to an old, abandoned mansion. After a narrow escape, a strange man visits to explain the nature of good and evil, and confirms that their fate relies upon a dreaded return to to the scary mansion.
