Fifteen-year-old Jenna Moores is struggling with her father’s recent death. Not long after his passing, a ghost from her childhood returns. When she was young, Jenna’s father convinced her that the ghost was just her imagination and that he would always protect her. But now he’s gone, the ghost is back, and Jenna knows she’s not imagining it. As the entity grows stronger, its threats move from alienating Jenna from her friends and family–to killing her. Alone and afraid, she must find and destroy the link that holds the spirit to this world…before Jenna, too, becomes a ghost.
I’m going to take this opportunity to tell you a little about myself. I’ve always loved to write. I remember taking pieces of paper, cutting them into squares, and stapling them together to form a small book when I was a kid. The Witch and the Kitty is one book that I remember creating. I didn’t really have a plot, though. I just wrote about a witch that lived in the basement of my home.
For Christmas one year, my parents bought me a Smith Corona typewriter, and I would stay up at night typing away about horses galloping into the sunset. Again, I didn’t really have a story line.
Later, after I grew up and had some life experience, I tried my hand at writing again. This time I started with short stories. One of my short stories was called Picture Girl. It was about a picture of me when I was four years old that was possessed by a ghost. This originated from a nightmare I had when I was in middle school. (It must’ve been scary since I could remember it all these years later.) After a dear friend of mine read the short story, she pushed me to turn it into a book. So, I wrote a middle and an ending and finished my first novel Ghost in the Blue Dress.
