Amazon.com AUTHOR’S NOTE THE GIRL BURIED IN THE WOODS was inspired by a true storythe murder of Connie Evans on her fifteenth birthday in the suburbs outside Philadelphia. Her body was found in a shallow grave beneath a grove of pine trees on a country road about a mile from my home. At the time Berkley Road was a desolate street between empty fields of grass that I used to ride my bicycle on every day. I was only a boy at the time of the murder, only ten years old. It took me a year to find the courage to get off my bike and step underneath those pine trees for a look at her grave. In my mind, my imagination, I can still see her hair strewn through the soil, just as it was described by the man who discovered her body with his dog. This is an image that I have carried with me ever since. While this novel isnt the story of Connie Evanss life and death, her murder shook me to the bone and changed my life forever.
