I don’t really know whether I believe in ghosts. I’ve never had an encounter, nor do I want one. I’m open-minded and believe that others have seen them and they believe.
The one thing I do know is that I love to write about them.
With this book, I had such great fun because I love my main character. Cassie, who is a clairvoyant. She is fun and sassy at times. Before I knew it I had mixed up two elements that generally don’t go together, or do they?
Scary ghosts and humour, because this isn’t a comedic book, it’s deadly serious. I believe in writing about life as it is and so many people find humour in the things that frighten them most, Cassie is no exception.
The first photograph shows the book cover, which I absolutely love. I designed one myself but was never happy with it. Then, Paul White, from Electric Eclectic made this one for me and it says just what I needed it too, plus it is very clever having the book on the stairs, who’d have thought of that!
The second photo is the creature that haunts the house. It started out as a man but soon turned into something demonic. Here is a small excerpt.
I’d brought Damien into this and he was good enough to stand by me, the least I could do was to protect him. He was a non-believer; he shouldn’t be seeing this.
The picture underneath the ghoul is Cassie as she stares in wonderment around her. She sees more than she ever tells and has learnt to leave the undead to make their appearances on their own.
Finally, the biker is Damien, one of two sporting brothers who are also models. Winning cups and the hearts of girls is what they do. Daniel is married to discover the house he bought with his wife his haunted and she refuse to go inside.
Damien comes to Cassie to ask for help. She soon falls in love with him but is aware of his disbelief in all she does and fears their relationship may not last because of it.
Damien’s love for Cassie is severely tested, and it may be too much for him to stay with her.
