There is a difference between loneliness and being alone.
After the sudden death of her father, Jade Foster moves to a new town with her mother and step-dad where she discovers a mysterious ghost haunting her room. She hopes it’s her father. But Sean Clayton died in a motorcycle accident nearly seventy years ago and has been waiting for the one person to help him move on. These two lonely souls form an unlikely friendship and Sean vows to protect Jade from the dangers that now threaten her from both the afterlife and high school life. Jade soon discovers that falling in love with a ghost can be complicated … especially when Sean may not be what he appears.

I caught up with Val while she was preparing to test-drive a Lamborghini Diablo. She said, “Truthfully, at times I wasn’t sure it was ever going to happen. . . Then one day in an on-line conversation I met JD from Fantasy Island Book Publishing. He liked what he saw of Servant of the Gods, my most recent release.

We all wish Val the best in her ventures with her new publisher, and trust we will still bump into her at the old water-cooler from time to time.

Some people just get bouts of bed-wetting from their nightmares. That’s what I’ve heard. Shut up. Continue reading “Meet the Author: Shay Fabbro”
