Book 1: How To Date Dead Guys

BOOK ONE– How to Date Dead Guys

College sophomore Emma Roberts remembers her mother’s sage advice:  “don’t sleep around, don’t burp in public, and don’t tell anyone you see ghosts”.  But when charming Mike Carlson drowns in the campus river under her watch, Emma’s sheltered life shatters. 

Blamed for Mike’s death and haunted by nightmares, Emma turns to witchcraft and a mysterious Book of Shadows to bring him back.  Under a Blood Moon, she lights candles, draws a pentacle on the campus bridge, and casts a spell.  The invoked river rages up against her, but she escapes its fury.  As she stumbles back to the dorm, a stranger drags himself from the water and follows her home. And he isn't the only one.

Instead of raising Mike, Emma assists the others she stole back from the dead—a pre-med student who jumped off the bridge, a desperate victim determined to solve his own murder, and a frat boy Emma can’t stand…at first.  More comfortable with the dead than the living, Emma delves deeper into the seductive Book of Shadows.  Her powers grow, but witchcraft may not be enough to protect her against the vengeful river and the killers that feed it their victims.

Inspired by the controversial Smiley Face Murders, HOW TO DATE DEAD GUYS will ignite the secret powers hidden deep within each of us.

BOOK TWO – How to Ditch Dead Guys

After everyone she raises from the dead sinks back into the river, Emma longs for a purpose. A schedule. Something to accomplish.

Then Officer Walker leaves a message on her voice mail:  "There's been another murder, and I need your help."

With a bag of witchcraft supplies slung over her shoulder, Emma performs a séance for Walker at the site of the murder. But nothing happens until Emma gets back home.

Black smoke swirls inside the bathroom. An invisible force slams her head onto the tiled floor. A golden snake slithers across her legs, then impales her wrist with its icy teeth.

As the smoke clears and the images fade, the truth becomes clear.

This time around, Emma won't just watch what happened. She'll live it.

As Emma helps Officer Walker solve murder cases, she relives the horror of each victim's last moments of life. From the edge of the river to the underground lair of the gang who murdered Steve, she endures it all.

As Emma weakens, both the victims and the murderers who killed them fight for control of her body and mind.

She's possessed, and the voices inside her head won't let her ask for help.

Even the Book of Shadows can't save her now.

  1. When will "How to Destroy Dead Guys" be available? Just curious!

    1. Thanks for your questions on both series, but I'm afraid the answer is somewhat the same -- I still don't know when the series will be finished. This was intended to be a trilogy, but life and issues with publishing have gotten in the way of progress.

  2. I am OFFICIALLY working on the third installment of this series. Don't know how long this will take me, but I'll post updates when I can! Thanks for your patience!

  3. I hope the 3rd book comes out soon I just can't wait the first two books were amazing I couldn't get enough
