Genre Paranormal Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Wanting to start fresh, Cassie Evans relocates to the small town of Passion where she moves into the home of her dreams, complete with dreamy next door neighbor, artist, and handyman Thomas Healy. The only problem is, the house she bought just might be haunted.
Thomas Healy lives a life of solitude and that suits him just fine. Then Cassie Evans moves in next door and begins to turn his peaceful life upside down. He tries to ignore her, but ignoring a woman as beautiful as Cassie isn’t so easy, especially when she shows up at your door, naked, begging for you to paint her. Thomas’ first mistake was to agree to it, his second was to take Cassie to bed, now she’s all he can think about.
When their blossoming love is overshadowed by a ghostly haunting, the curious Cassie launches an investigation into the life and death of her home’s previous owner, uncovering a mystery and attracting the attention of a killer. Where will Cassie’s discovery lead her, to the love of her life or to death itself?
Tell us about yourself as a person.
What makes you different from other people?
Well, I once lived in a haunted house. It wasn’t a malicious spirit. Completely opposite. The spirit of the woman who died in our farm house was very helpful in that she would bring my baby sister a bottle if she woke crying, opened the curtains in the morning to let the sun in and set cups on the table or morning coffee.
What is your favorite subject to talk about?
Anything paranormal. I’m fascinated in others experiences and thoughts of spirits who still remain around us.
What is your favorite meal?
I’m a meat and potatoes gal. I could eat roast chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy every day if I could.
Tell us about yourself as a writer.
What made you want to be a writer?
I’ve always been a storyteller. As far back as I can remember, I told stories to anyone who listened. As I grew, so did my collection of stories. After filling two boxes of manuscripts, my husband urged me to look into getting them published. It wasn’t easy, but I stuck with it, and to date, I have 15 books published.
When you go to a convention, what kinds of things do you take along?
A nice bright bouquet of flowers. Bookmarks for giveaways and merchandise with my books printed on them.
What’s your best advice for a new writer?
If it truly is your passion, stick to it. Don’t let rejections get you down or doubt yourself.
