Howdy from New Mexico! I write romantic suspense for adults, and a variety of books – including fantasy – for children. The lovely TRS hosts said I could stop by today to share some of my children’s fantasy novels at the party. Here’s the Haunted series, for ages nine and up:
Thirteen-year-old Jon and his eleven-year-old sister, Tania, are typical kids – except for the fact that Tania can communicate with ghosts. Their mom and stepdad are producers of a ghost-hunter reality television show, but they don’t know about Tania’s gift, and Tania wants to keep it that way.
Jon can’t see ghosts and didn’t believe in them, but things are getting too crazy for any other explanation. And if softhearted Tania wants to help the ghosts, Jon will have to protect her and try to keep them both out of trouble.
First the siblings have to find out what happened to keep each ghost trapped in this world. Then they need to help the ghosts move on—sometimes by letting them take over Tania’s body. All this while dealing with their overprotective mother, a stepfather who’d want to exploit Tania’s gift, and a changing assortment of human troublemakers.
Life gets interesting when your sister sees ghosts. And the TV show’s shooting season is just beginning….
“A great start to a suspenseful new series. … Haunted is a fun read with some thrills and chills and has the added bonus of some genuine, compassionate personalities.” – School Library Journal
