About the Book:

A mother’s love is a powerful force of nature. Tina’s daughter is savagely murdered.  Tina comes to know the police won’t be able to solve the crime because the answers are to be found in the supernatural realm and sets out determined to find answers herself. Donald chose evil when he was a living being. Brought back to spirit he continues spreading terror. As Tina explores, others come to know that something outside the norm is at work in Pendale. Will the power of love bring light overcoming the spreading darkness? Will Becky be able to rest in peace?


Q: Welcome to The Writer's Life!  Now that your book has been published, we’d love to find out more about the process.  Can we begin by having you take us at the beginning?  Where did you come up with the idea to write your book?

I came up with idea because I have always been interest in the paranormal and “true ghost” stories.  My father used to tell me such stories and I in turn would ask others around me if they knew a ghostly tale.  Start this conversation and you will find everyone has something to contribute.

Q: How hard was it to write a book like this and do you have any tips that you could pass on which would make the journey easier for other writers?

It was not hard at all to write.  It is true that a book at times writes itself leading you beyond your first concept.   

Q: Who is your publisher and how did you find them or did you self-publish?

My publisher is Infinity.  They are a great company who help their writers every step of the way.

Q: Is there anything that surprised you about getting your first book published?

I was surprised at the after publication work involved in marketing.  I am learning new things about the industry every day.

Q: Can you describe the feeling when you saw your published book for the first time?

When I fist held my book it was a longtime goal come true.  I felt awed.

Q: What other books (if any) are you working on and when will they be published?

I have started a new book.  It is just in the initial stage right now because I am busy in marking my current one. 

Q: Fun question: How does your book contribute to making this world a better place?

My message to the world would be how love overcomes evil.

Q: Finally, what message are you trying to get across with your book?

I would like to convey the power and determination of a mothers love
