This story is based on something that really happened in our family--no, none of the people are based on us, just the plot idea.
The little girl on the cover isn't anyone I know--and the hair is the wrong color for the character, but I can tell you that the look in the eyes is definitely correct.
I think this is he scariest book I've ever written. One interesting comment is that one of my granddaughters who was about sixteen at the time, gave me some ideas for bad things the little girl in the book could do to her adopted siblings.
The book is what I call psychological horror and you can find it on Amazon.
