Secrets revealed by the Ridgefield Press

Jessica Haight, left, with writing partner Stephanie Robinson

A supposedly haunted house owned by one of Ridgefield’s former police chiefs, John Haight, has become the basis for a middle school-level juvenile novel published by Random House.

“The Secret Files of Fairday Morrow,” about a detective girl who moves to the big, old spooky house with lots of local lore surrounding it, is currently available.

Jessica Haight, 42, of New Fairfield, who by day is the central registrar for the Enchanted Garden school of the arts for children in Ridgefield, co-authored the book with writing partner Stephanie Robinson, 41, of Naugatuck, using Google Documents Share based on her experiences as a child in her grandfather’s creaky old home...

 In other news, Fairday's Drawing Contest entry date has been extended to June 17th. Set your imagination free!
