Hello, my name is Madeline Twine, and I am the author of the Chimera Memoirs. The Memoirs are short stories and tales of my life, and the lives of my four best friends: Tommy Whitaker, Kim Delain, Brad Jarvis, and Jessika Knight; and mysterious events in the small ocean side town of Chimera Cove.
The life of an amateur supernatural investigator can be very dangerous. Sometimes I discover information that certain residents of Chimera Cove would rather be kept, quiet. For the most part the Memoirs or the Chimera Rag – which most people like to call it – informs people of who is sick, what happened at the local cafe during the week, who is dating who, and you get the picture.
Recently, I have been stumbling upon some very mysterious happenings and events in Chimera Cove, and I think someone in the town is trying to stop me from writing the truth about what I find, and I fear that the closer I get to that truth, the more danger I will be in.
Fortunately, I have four, very good friends – Tommy Whitaker, Kim Delain, Brad Jarvis, and Jessika Knight – who are just as curious as I am to find out the truth about what is really happening to the people in Chimera Cove. They help me with the research, investigation and my favorite, the over-night stakeouts. Together we are determined to find out the truth about this town, and why all of the strange occurrences are happening.
I have lived in Chimera Cove all my life – which is only sixteen years – but it has always been a quiet town. The most exciting thing to happen was when the town library caught fire, and the only firetruck in town was used for the first time in fifteen years.
The quietness all changed when the Blackburn family moved in to the abandoned mansion up on Raven Mountain. The four Blackburn’s is what they are known as around town. Issac Blackburn is the father, with his wife Sarah Blackburn and their two children, Megan and Luke Blackburn. The rumor is that they moved here from Ireland after inheriting the mansion from their great grandfather, Victor Blackburn.
It is when they arrived, that I started to see strange and mysterious things happening to my quiet little town….
