Bristol writer RoseMary McDaniel has published a book, Murder at the Museum and Other Fruithills Suspense Stories. It contains short stories that combine her love for Bristol and history with her interest in the paranormal.
“In 2000 I saw that there was no website for Bristol, so I started www.bristolsun.net. As I learned about Bristol’s history, people told me stories. There are a lot of haunted places here,” said McDaniel.
McDaniel has written 32 stories and put them on www.feedbooks.com, barnesandnoble.com and Amazon, where they have attracted more than 40,000 downloads. The book is a collection of 15 of her stories. Although they are inspired by actual places and events, the stories are fictionalized.
McDaniel will sign copies of her book at the Bristol-Washington Public Library from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, April 9, and at 1 p.m. Thursday, April 10.
The books are also available at the Elkhart County Historical Museum, Camille’s Floral and Gifts and the Murphy Guest House Bed and Breakfast in Bristol. McDaniel will also sign books during Camille’s Floral And Gifts annual open house from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday, May 3, and from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, May 4.
