For those of you who have been asking about my next project, I am SO pleased to present the spooky, time-bending, jaw-dropping sequel and prequel(!!!) to The Girl Who Talks to Ashes...

It’s been three years since Lilah Quinn stumbled upon the bones of her biological mother, thereby solving the mystery of Willow’s long-forgotten disappearance. Since then, Lilah has been working off-book as Sheriff Reid’s star detective, solving decades-old cold cases with the help of those closest to the crimes – the victims themselves.

But when Lilah’s newest case hits a dead end, she’s forced to do something she’s never done before: speak to the murderer himself. Unfortunately, his “ghost” isn’t interested in helping her, nor is he willing to play by her rules. Because, unlike all the others, this ghost is able to exist apart from his bones, untethered even by time.

And now that he’s been freed, he’s got a bone to pick.

And for those of you who may need a little more enticement, here are some reviews!

"The Girl Who Talks to Ashes is a truly engrossing novel that plays with the horror genre without being consumed by it, flirts with sci-fi without giving in to it, and explodes into a magnificent mystery that kept me reading long into the night. I enjoyed every minute of this book and I can’t recommend it enough." - Vinnie A. (this has to be one of my favorite quotes about this series!)

"5 fabulous stars for another read added to the shelf of my all-time favorites. "Nancy Drew meets the Ghost Whisperer with a dash of Dr. Who sprinkled in. The Girl Who Talks To Ashes is one of the most ingenious books I have ever read!" - The Magic Book Corner

"This was a gem. I geek out so hard over cool ideas in fiction, and I loved this. I loved how it started out in a way that made you think horror, then it kind of went thriller, but all with these fantastic side characters that made me giggle. I usually struggle with teenage main characters, but this is sharp and immersive. I loved it and will be telling everyone I know to read it." - SPFBO Winner, Author J.D. Evans

"What a ride! I picked up The Girl Who Talks To Ashes after a conversation with the author about the many sub-genres of fantasy, and how it's becoming increasingly hard to define some fantasy books. I'm glad I did. This genre-mashing fantasy epic is great, guys. SO great." - David Green, author
