About this ebook

(The 2016 e-book version of Somebody Tell Aunt Tillie She's Dead includes a Q & A with the Author). 

A little magic can go a long way -- to really screwing up a girl's life!

Mara is having the worst month of her life. At least, that's what her cards tell her and they've never been wrong. She's evicted from her apartment, loses her job and is banned from Beverly Hills. So when the tarot cards predict her imminent demise, she uses a little magic to make her world right.

Suddenly, an aunt she's never met dies, leaving Mara as her sole heir. But when Mara moves into her inherited home, she discovers Aunt Tillie never moved out. She's still one pissed-off old lady, even post-mortem, and she blames Mara's magical meddling for her death.

When Mara accidentally releases a demon and awakens the spirit of the most powerful witch in history, Tillie's ready to kill her -- literally. It's the only way she can think of to save the girl from herself.

The witch and the demon, however, have other plans for Mara's body!

What I value most in a story are characters with depth. I know an author has achieved that when I turn the last page of the book and walk away feeling a bit sad, as the characters then feel like old friends. Christiana Miller accomplished this with Mara and Gus. Thank you, Christiana, for all of the time, effort, and love that you poured into this novel! I look forward to reading the rest of the Tillie series.

Very good, I definitely recommend this book. Found a little error, in page 182, it says "Gus is 2000 miles away", and then after few lines, it says " 3000 miles"

This story was entertaining from beginning to end. I found it to be both humorous and exciting. Very hard to put down.

About the author

Christiana Miller is a novelist, screenwriter and mom who's led an unusual life. In addition to writing for General Hospital: Night Shift and General Hospital, she's had her DNA shot into space (where she's currently cohabiting in a drawer with Stephen Colbert and Stephen Hawking), she's been serenaded by Klingons, and she's been the voices of all the female warriors in Mortal Kombat II and III. If her life was a TV show, it would be a wacky dramedy filled with Dobies and eccentric characters who get themselves into bizarre situations!
