Before I wrote young adult stories I penned a few adult ones. Disclaimer: that would be “adult” in the sense that the hero or heroine is older than 20, not the FIFTY SHADES OF GREY type. I know better than to cross THAT line.
So I am pleased to announce the e-publication of a contemporary paranormal romance set in Los Angeles, a book I wrote back in 2003. Over the years I’ve mussed with it and now, and after a lovely cover designed by Jeannie Ruesch (www.WillDesignForChocolate.com) and editing by the fabulous Kathryn Hinds, TANGLED SOULS is ready for its debut.
The back cover copy pretty much says it all:
Wiccan Gavenia Kingsgrave’s psychic gift, the ability to talk to the dead, comes with strings attached. As a Shepherd, she escorts them into the hereafter, but not all the souls want to cross over, and some can be downright vicious. When her latest case involves a heart-breaking hit-and-run victim, Gavenia is stressed to the max. The last thing she needs is a no-nonsense private detective on her tail, even if he is a handsome Irishman.
Former homicide detective Douglas O’Fallon possesses his own psychic gift, one he’s denied for years. Hired by a wealthy client to prove that Gavenia’s a con artist, he is skeptical of the witch’s claims she can speak to the dead. If he finds her gift as genuine, then he will be forced to accept his own. When their two cases intersect, opposites attract. But will they be able to set their differences aside long enough to outwit their foes – both the living and the dead?
For those of you who like romance and mystery, leavened with a bit of paranormal — I give you TANGLED SOULS. It is available for Kindle, Nook and Kobo. A print edition will be available later in the year.
Color me very pleased this book is finally ready for prime time.
