GREAT SUMMER READS 2019, PART 1 – FEATURING AUTHOR EMILY-JANE HILLS ORFORD




An avid gardener, artist, musician and writer, Emily-Jane Hills Orford has fond memories and lots of stories that evolved from a childhood growing up in a haunted Victorian mansion. Told she had a ‘vivid imagination’, the author used this talent to create stories in her head to pass tedious hours while sick, waiting in a doctor’s office, listening to a teacher drone on about something she already knew, or enduring the long, stuffy family car rides. The author lived her stories in her head, allowing her imagination to lead her into a different world, one of her own making. 

As the author grew up, these stories, imaginings and fantasies took to the written form and, over the years, she developed a reputation for telling a good story. Emily-Jane can now boast that she is an award-winning author of several books, including Mrs. Murray’s Ghost (Telltale Publishing 2018), Queen Mary’s Daughter (Clean Reads 2018), Gerlinda (CFA 2016) which received an Honorable Mention in the 2016 Readers’ Favorite Book Awards, To Be a Duke (CFA 2014) which was named Finalist and Silver Medalist in the 2015 Next Generation Indie Book Awards and received an Honorable Mention in the 2015 Readers’ Favorite Book Awards and several other books. A retired teacher of music and creative writing, she writes about the extra-ordinary in life and the fantasies of dreams combined with memories.

There is a hidden treasure in the grand old mansion on Piccadilly Street, in a place called London, but not the real London of English fame. There’s also a lot of mystery and a murder that’s been unsolved for decades. But it’s the treasure that captures Mary’s interest.

Mary lives in this house along with her family, her Brownie friends and a ghost. When the ghost reveals her secret about the hidden treasure, there’s no stopping Mary, her Brownie friends, or her enemies to searching for this treasure. 

Why the intrigue? Apparently there’s a little bit of magic connected with this treasure. And so the adventure begins. 

Who will find the treasure first?

Top Ten List:

1 – I have a very special muse – my dog, Duke. I take pleasure in our daily walks and the inspiration he provides me on these walks.
2 – I love to cross-stitch. Mostly small projects, as I need the creative release after working on my long writing projects.
3 – I love to read – a day without reading is like a day without sunshine.
4 – I enjoy baking and browsing cookbooks.
5 – I used to ride horses and will occasionally enjoy a trail ride with my daughter.
6 – When my children were young, we learned Highland dancing together.
7 – An ideal outing for me is either a bookstore (new or used) or a garden center – or, better yet, both.
8 – I spend most of the spring, summer and fall in my garden – at least, when I’m not writing.
9 – I enjoy sharing creative ideas with fellow writers and artists. Networking is always good for the soul as well as the creative muse.

10 – I really did grow up in a haunted house.
