Seventeen-year-old Lisa Jacobs is determined to solve her father’s gruesome murder. But before she can investigate in her own small town, she is forced to spend the summer with her Uncle Clayton, the owner of Grand Hallow–a massive funeral and mortuary operation the size of a small city. Her move to Grand Hallow only deepens the mystery as she begins to suspect the strange and chilling occurrences there are linked to her father’s death. With the help of her acid-tongued best friend and deadbeat brother, Lisa must unravel the secrets of Grand Hallow–before it’s too late.

What interests me are stories about things you can’t quite put your finger on. Stories that may start in a familiar reality, but begin to cross the line a bit into the surreal. My writing typically also has a dark twist. And I like to mix different genres depending on where the story takes me. I hate having to classify my writing, but these genres would probably be a good start: dark fantasy, mystery, horror, young adult, coming of age, fable, low fantasy, supernatural, magical realism, speculative fiction, suspense.
My first book, a short novel titled Cracking Grace, is a dark fantasy that explores relationships, loss and spirituality.
In the Graveyard Antemortem is my first full-length novel. It is a mystery and suspense novel with a healthy dash of horror. I didn’t set out to write a mystery. I just wanted to take this story and its characters that had been in my head forever and write a novel that had a fun and scary tone–with lots of suspense and moments of horror. Yet as I was writing and the story further developed, I realized I had to embrace the mystery element to do it justice. I wrote ITGA book as a gift to my 17-year-old self. I wrote it for those who love mystery, suspense and horror. And I wrote it for the teens of the 80s.
I’m super excited that it’s now out there for everyone to read. ITGA was a winner of Amazon’s reader-powered Kindle Scout program. The e-book (Kindle) is published exclusively for Amazon by Kindle Press. The paperback is published by JournalStone Publishing and is available from various retailers.
Personally, I’m into animal welfare (I’m even coming around to snakes). And I love Halloween, haunted houses and the 80s.
