About Dark Silence:
Tully. He made Sarah’s every wish come true. He appeared to her eyes alone and spoke so that only she could hear. Sometimes Sarah wondered if it was all her imagination. But the things that Tully made happen were all too real. And, as Sarah grew up, they were all too horrible.
Now Sarah, a college freshman in Maine, lives in terror. She mustn’t think bad thoughts. She mustn’t give in to the lure of Tully’s powers. She mustn’t ever, ever get angry. For what Tully doesn’t understand is that some wishes aren’t meant to be granted.

About Dark Silence:
November, 1694. Rachel Parsons, an accused witch, is hanged at the Gallows Tree in Summerfield, Maine. Before she dies, she curses all who live on her land. Her words end with the creak of the rope as the ladder is pulled out from under her.
Autumn, 1963. A retarded boy is chased into the old, abandoned mill. But it is one of his tormentors who ends up at the bottom of a shaft.
Summer, 1994. Brian Fraser has heard the stories about the old mill. They say it’s haunted, filled with the whisperings of long ago…including something that his own father won’t talk about. But Brian is drawn to the mill. Drawn to an evil so hideous, so apocalyptic it threatens one’s sanity…

Holly Newstein-Hautala offered Rick’s archives—manuscripts, letters, etc.—to the Walker Memorial Library in Westbrook, ME, where he lived and worked most of his adult life. A year after the offer was made, the library turned down the offer. Holly tweeted about the rejection, which caught the interest of a couple of reporters, and now The Portland Press Herald and American Journal have run front-page articles about the issue.
Before the articles even appeared, Southern Maine Community College expressed an interest in Rick’s papers. Holly will be visiting SMCC next month to see how they would care for Rick’s archives. Looks very promising, she said!
