Loose Ends is spooky, funny, and left me wanting more!
Book Description: Mary O’Reilly, a former Chicago cop, has a secret – she can see dead people. As a private investigator, it’s great skill to have when you’re trying to find the bad guys. As a fairly new resident in the small town of Freeport, it can lead people to some incorrect and fairly outlandish conclusions. This time, when she’s investigating the murders of five little girls by a serial killer, it can lead to her death.
Readers who love Dearly Departed in Deadwood, Ghost Whisperer, and A Hidden Witch will enjoy LOOSE ENDS.
Author’s Inspiration: As a freelance writer for a local newspaper, I was given the assignment to write the feature article for the Halloween section. Imagine my surprise when I met with many people who had ghostly experiences of their own. Five years and hundreds of stories later, I knew it was time to write my own story.
Actor Who Would Play the Main Character: Emma Stone
From the Book: She turned in her bed and looked up at him. He was dressed in gray, a Union soldier. His uniform was riddled with bullet holes and thick, red blood slowly seeped from each opening. But the blood dripping on her bed was not coming from those oozing apertures. No, the blood dripped from the stump where his head used to be.
Plunk. Plunk. Plunk.
She watched as the blood pooled on the comforter.
“Crap, this is going to stain!”
She closed her eyes for a moment and then pushed herself up in her bed.
“Look, I’ve just had a really bad day and I can’t deal with you tonight. Okay?”
He paused… and straightened. After contemplating her response for a moment, he shrugged his shoulders, turned and slowly shuffled out of the room.
“And try to keep your blood off the new tiles in the kitchen,” she called after him.
