A blurb and synopsis about Thomas Creeper:


Thirteen-year-old mortician's apprentice Thomas Creeper hasn't been dealt the best hand in life. He lives in the seaside town of Gloomsbury, MA, a damp and miserable place overrun by poisonous "scabber weed," where the sun shines for only a few days each year. Thomas, however, dreams of a different kind of life (as a code-cracking spy!) in a different kind of place (anywhere but Gloomsbury!). When a body arrives on the doorstep of Creeper & Sons Funeral Home with signs of foul play, Thomas and his smart-as-whip sidekick, Jeni Myers, are thrust into the middle of a terrifying mystery, one which will reveal the link between Thomas's family and the dark secret of his hometown. Joining forces with the motley crew of the Conch Whistle, a high-tech submarine that hides in offshore waters, Thomas and Jeni must rely upon their wits (and a few magical devices!) to defeat a powerful and horrifying foe.

SCAVENGER HUNT: Do you like solving secret codes and riddles? Five scavenger hunt stations with candy for kids and wine for adults will be set up to discover. The book will act as a "codebook" for getting to each station.

Everyone who locates the 5 stations and solves the riddle/cipher will receive a personalized Thomas Creeper bookmark signed by the author.


COSTUME CONTEST: The top 3 will win SRV swag and a personalized piece of spooky art by J.R. Potter


FIRESIDE GHOST STORY: Evening wraps up at dusk with a short fireside ghost story read by J.R. Potter.

** A copy of the book is needed to complete the scavenger hunt. Limited copies of the book will be available at Slater Run Vineyards. The book can be purchased on Amazon!
