The haunting third book in the Best Selling Visitors Series.
“When I first moved here I was still a girl who cherished the normality of teen life. Now, after being here a year I had come to love a boy who was both strong and courageous. I made real friendships that would last even after death. The selfish girl my grandmother warned me of becoming had vanished. A girl who stood tall, with the powers to see the dead and help those in need, appeared in her place.”
In Brylee’s world, nothing is normal. She sees and speaks with the dead and, at seventeen years old, she already has a full plate. She’s in her senior year of high school and college is just around the corner, but only if she learns to control her gifts and survive in the land of the living.
She has succeeded in ridding her boyfriend, Ephraim, from the Brown family curse, but, in the end, her best friend loses her life. Now a whole slew of new problems present itself and, like always, Brylee is tempted to run for the hills. With Ephraim at her side, she must come to grips with the reality that she is not an average girl and she never will be.
What will happen when the town turns on her? Or, better yet, when a body is unearthed in her backyard? The choices that Brylee must make will determine whether she has a future or nothing at all.
1. Which book do you think everyone should read at least once in their life?
I'm all for classics, like Jane Eyre and Pride and Prejudice but the one book I think everyone should pick up and read is Harry Potter. It holds so much magic and wonder that young or old everyone can appreciate the book. I started reading that series when I was eighteen and I was so thankful for it at that time of my life. I had been so focused on other things that that one book brought a reader out of me that I didn't know was there. It made me appreciate YA fiction.
2. Which book(s) and/or author(s) do you get the most inspiration from?
I find inspiration from many authors; Margaret Stohl, Kami Garcia, Taherah Mafi and Ransom Riggs. Those are just a few. My books main influence is the actual house that its based on. I can't say that one book influences my writing because I read so many genres.
3. Which TV show would you most want to promote your book on? Why?
Oh Supernatural for sure! I think having the Winchester brothers go in the Brown house and fight the ghosts that walk the halls would be awesome. I actually can see Brylee helping them fight off ghosts!
4. What's the strangest part of your writing ritual if you have one?
Not sure if my writing ritual has any weirdness. I light candles then I turn on Pandora radio and blast it. I have to write in a completely quiet house or I can't focus.
5. Spring or Fall?
Fall for sure. I am a big fan of everything that is autumn. Pumpkins, hayrides, apples, and Halloween.
