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 Gavenia’s a con artist, he’s skeptical of the witch’s claims she can speak to the dead. If he finds her gift to be genuine, then he will be forced to accept his own. When their two cases intersect, opposites attract. But will they able to set aside their differences long enough to outwit their foes — both the living and the dead?
Why I wrote Tangled Souls (from a 2013 author interview):
This story had a long gestation, some ten years in the making. During that time I have returned to the manuscript when my schedule permitted, though the story is still pretty much as it was back at the beginning. Gavenia and O’Fallon have always waited patiently for their tale to be told and now it’s their moment in the sun.
The original idea for the story came from an article about a lightworker who helps the dead across the Veil. Back in 1983, she and other like-minded folks were in the middle of a ritual when the spirits of dead soldiers walked through the walls of their room, drawn by their “light”. Shaken by the experience, the woman pointed the soldiers toward the Veil and they crossed over. It was only later she realized that the exact moment the soldiers had appeared is when the Marine barracks was bombed in Beirut, leaving countless dead.
That story has remained with me for years, and I decided to write a book about a Shepherd and a PI who learn to accept the gifts they’ve been given and, along the way, find love. Hope you enjoy Tangled Souls.
