Once, Osgood and Frost were the up-and-coming stars of the burgeoning paranormal investigation TV show craze before a hoax put an end to their friendship, partnership, and television careers. Now, over a decade later, Prudence Osgood is a barely-functioning alcoholic ghosthunter for hire. Her yearning for mystery and adventure is reignited when she receives a cryptic, untraceable email. She can't resist embarking on an investigation that tugs threads winding through a sinister series of disappearances, her former partner's family, and a night twenty years ago when a semi blew a yellow light and nearly killed her. Reviewers are calling Osgood as Gone “a masterfully vulnerable and relatable 21st Century horror story” and “a bourbon soaked supernatural mystery” with “sparkling dialogue” that “sticks the landing on LGBT+ characters,” and main character Prudence Osgood “as tortured as she is clever,” “broken in all the best ways,” and “a true heroine for our times.”
About the author
As a queer non-monogamous writer, Cooper S. Beckett endeavors to create characters that reflect the diverse lifestyles of his friends, his partners, and himself. If he can pit those characters against monsters and cosmic horrors he’s all the happier. From a young age, his obsession with horror movies and books seriously concerned his mother. It probably still does. Given a choice, he would rather winter at the Overlook than the Waldorf. Like Lydia Deetz, he has always thought of himself strange and unusual, and is thrilled to be putting that foot forward in his first horror novel. He lives in Chicago with his wife, constant, and binary star, Ophilia Tesla, and their black cats Xander and Willow.
