Bullies. Ghosts. Haunted Houses. The first brush with evil is always the scariest. 

Many years before Forever Road, Peri Jean Mace’s ability to see ghosts made her the most unpopular senior at Gaslight City High. But now graduation is right around the corner. 

Peri Jean needs to pass her senior project so she can go to prom and graduate. Then she can roar off into the sunset with her wanna-be rockstar boyfriend. 

But when senior projects are assigned, Peri Jean draws a local haunted house. Worse, the nastiest bully at Gaslight City High School is put in her group. 

Stuck investigating something that defies logical explanation with a bully dogging her every move, Peri Jean is sure she’ll come up with a big, fat zero.

Rear View is a prequel to the Peri Jean Mace Ghost Thriller series. It can be read at any point in the series. If you like your Urban Fantasy complete with freaky ghosts, side-splitting laughs, and a heroine with a heart (and a temper) as big as Texas, you’ll love Rear View. 

Download Rear View today and take a trip back to those hallowed high school halls to walk beside the girl who never quite fit in.

Some urban legends hold a truth more horrifying than any story…

After her life in Gaslight City went up in flames, Peri Jean Mace starts over in a new city—as a witch-for-hire.

But when Peri Jean’s new job pits her against a nasty spirit straight out of an urban legend, she accidentally opens the door for a ruthless evil to walk among the living. All it needs is the life force of a gifted child…and it has its sights set on Peri Jean’s young cousin.

Now Peri Jean must risk her life to save a little girl and send this monster back where he belongs. But to win, she will have to crawl through a hell that will change her forever.

Can Peri Jean risk herself to save the day? Or are some lines too great to be crossed?
