Have a Marlis Day!

Sparky & Grey at Grouseland

Posted on: August 12, 2019

This picture belongs in my book, THE SECRET OF BAILEY’S CHASE. In Chapter Nine, the ten-yr-old heroines, Sparky and Grey Bailey, visit the historic Grouseland on a field trip with their class. While touring the mansion (Home of William Henry Harrison, governor of the Indiana Territory) the girls make contact with the spirit of a child, Calico.  She informs them that her daddy, a slave, was falsely accused of stealing a horse and hanged. She offered proof of his innocence and begged the girls to clear his name. The blonde Sparky and her dark-haired cousin and best friend, Grey, embark on a journey into the past to right this wrong. Children tell me this is their favorite part of the book. Thanks to Karen Burke-Bible for allowing me to borrow this picture of her daughter, Emmy and her friend, Tylee.
