My next book, The Mortician’s Daughter is about seventeen-year-old Riley Smith. Her daddy is a mortician—well when he can hold onto a job for long. Other than her dad, Riley is alone. Well, except for daddy’s clients who end up following him home.
Daddy’s clients who want something.
Daddy’s clients who are dead.
When I wrote Shadow Falls, ghosts played a pretty important role. So, I got asked a lot of questions about ghosts. Mostly people wanted to know if I believed in them. So, I’ll share my ghost experience with you.
You see to me, ghosts are scarier than vampires or werewolves. Probably because I believe they exist. Not that several of my supernaturals don’t scare the crap out of me, but on a personal scale, ghosts are the scariest.
My personal ghost story happened when I’d just turned ten, and I woke up one night to find my great-grandmother hovering over me. She always was one to hover over you, but at this point, she’d been dead for a week! And actually, she was more like floating. She was in a long white gossamer gown that flowed around her, so she looked like she didn’t have feet. She said she just wanted to let me know that she was okay. Then she told me that someday I’d have to give up the rags I called clothes (she hated the new fashions), and I’d be wearing a gown like hers.
Well, I have moved on in a fashion sense, but I’m not yet ready for a long gossamer gown and hovering over my loved ones. Have you ever had an experience with a ghost? I’ll give away any one of my Shadow Falls books to one person who leave a comment about ghosts. (Sorry, but this giveaway is for U.S. residents only. If you’re reading this on Goodreads, you must leave your comment on my blog to be entered in this giveaway.)
