About this title

Synopsis:

With his marriage and his business on the rocks, Tom Walker moves from Boston to Tarrytown, New York, to take up residence in a condominium left to him by a relative he never knew. A Victorian era eyesore that “went condo” in the ‘eighties, the house, it seems, has a storied past. Blissfully unaware that his unit is already occupied, Tom carries his stuff, such as it is, into the condo. In fact, he just keeps missing the other occupant, who wakes, eats, shaves, and cuts his hair before setting out with a jacket and his bowling ball. Oh, and his name is Rip (it’s stitched over the pocket of his bowling shirt). Tom is greeted by his new neighbor, an incorrigibly nosey young woman named Katrina “Kat” Van Tassel. She lives across the hall with her musically challenged boyfriend, Brom Bones. Kat quickly fills Tom in on the other residents, including the crotchety Marie Heyliger-Vander Heyden, her socially awkward 19-year old “niece,” Judith, and the shadowy Nick Scratch (“I think he’s a serial killer”). Summoning her boyfriend from his studio in the cellar, Kat introduces Tom to Brom (“Hey, that rhymes!”). At Kat’s urging, Brom makes up a song on the spot about Tom’s shirt. When Tom says it sort of reminds him of “Little Brown Jug,” the aspiring songwriter is deeply offended, insisting he’d never even heard of the song. Before she leaves, Kat persuades Tom to allow her to throw a “Welcome-Tommy-To-Sleepy-Hollow-Condos” Party. At his place, of course. And that's when all hell breaks loose. Literally.

About the Author:

David Meyers is a lifelong resident of Columbus, Ohio. A graduate of Miami University and The Ohio State University, he worked for thirty years in adult and juvenile corrections. As a local historian, he got his start with the late Robert D. "Bob" Thomas, assisting with the three volume "Columbus Unforgettables" series. He also contributed to "Listen for the Jazz," published by the Arts Foundation of Olde Towne. Since then, he has written a number of books on local history, as well as works for the stage. A novelization of his musical, "The Last Christmas Carol," was published in 2012 with illustrations by Sam Walker. "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow Condominium Association, Inc.," is the follow-up to that work.
