Betsy Klausmeyer’s Cellar

A story about a bad place.

During his son’s baseball game a tax attorney catches a glimpse of a birthmark on a man’s leg and his blood runs cold with the memories that come. When he was five years old he saw something he shouldn’t have, went somewhere he never should have gone and paid harsh consequences. His eighteen year old son knows something is up with his dad and confides in his quiet girlfriend, who suffered early trauma of her own and begins to suspect that her boyfriend’s father knows exactly what she went through as a child, may in fact have made the acquaintance of her family’s killer long ago, and now both are determined to go back and find the truth about what lies in Betsy Klausmeyer’s cellar.

  1. Ooooh, this is a great description. The title alone gives me the shivers!

    • So much of what we experience in childhood gets tucked safely away, but it doesn’t leave, it’s still there, just waiting for the right trigger to bring it all back. The thing is, what do we do with it once it’s back? hah

      Thanks for the Twitter mention, Liza. :)

  2. This looks so interesting! Did I tell you I’m getting a Kindle for Christmas? I put this on my Kindle wish list at Amazon. :D

  3. My experiment, is what I like to call this one. I asked myself if I could write an entire story without giving any of the main characters a name…and still have it work.
    Thanks for putting me on your list! :)
