GHOSTS IN THE COURTROOM! A PARANORMAL LEGALTHRILLER
When the police arrest Anson Ketcher and charge him with murdering his wife, he keeps saying: "The ghost killed her."
Nobody believes him. And nobody should, given Anson's violent past and rocky relationship with his dead wife. Everyone wants to see Anson convicted.
Except Eddie McCloskey, mixed up part-time ghost hunter now turned paranormal investigator for real—and by the by, also turned expert witness. Once Eddie’s hired, the prosecution doubles-down and brings in Gracie, a heavy-hitter who specializes in exposing frauds, quacks, and charlatans, and who has her own daytime syndicated TV show. She’s a shark in a suit, determined to refute anything Eddie tries to say.
So what's a paranormal investigator to do? Investigate the paranormal, of course. But he has a bad moment when the ghost itself writes him a note—claiming its innocence! Well, ghosts have been known to lie, but this sure doesn’t help Eddie’s cause.
He sets out to prove that a ghost could have killed the woman, and during his testimony he gets what looks like a break but...not so fast there!
Heads up: Look for a spectacular twist!

The Unearthed is more a slow-burn horror story with elements of mystery. The main character is Eddie McCloskey, who grows a lot as a character throughout the series. He’s great fun to write.Q: A legal thriller? Doesn't the world already have too many of these?A: No way! A trial makes for compelling entertainment. Plus, I don't think there's ever been a paranormal legal thriller before!Q: You're not a lawyer, are you?A: I'm pleading the Fifth on this one.Q: What does it mean to you when readers buy your books?A: It’s the ultimate compliment. I might never be a best-selling author, but the feedback from readers I’ve gotten is wonderful. It’s really touching when you look at someone’s Amazon profile and discover their first review of anything on the website is your book. They not only bought the story, they went out of their way to tell others about it. And it's even better when they buy one of my sequels - that means they enjoyed the first book and are willing to go on this trip with me.Q: Why do you make each book in the series a little different?A: For my own sanity and to keep the readers guessing as to where the story will go. The Lost is a suspense thriller. The Accused and the Damned is a paranormal legal thriller. The Hysteria is a paranormal action thriller. The Traveler is a murder mystery. I love putting Eddie in different situations, so he’s out of his comfort zone in every story. That makes for compelling fiction.Q: Will you do another legal thriller?A: I hope so...I have an idea for a sci-fi legal thriller...just gotta find the time to write it!˃˃˃ If you like my books, please leave me a review!Scroll up and grab a copy today.
