All good spirits enjoy Hallowe'en and that's why I set the first Bailey Ruth Raeburn mystery at Hallowe'en. In GHOST IN TROUBLE, the late Bailey Ruth Raeburn returns to earth to help someone in trouble and arrives in the midst of Hallowe'en festivities. Bailey Ruth will return in a summertime adventure in Fall 2013 in HIJACKED GHOST. This tale won't be set on the night when witches fly, but, as all mystery readers know, ghosts and goblins aren't confined to the night of October 31.

Ghosts from the past and goblins in troubled hearts bring more than a clanking of chains. They disrupt lives and it is this disruption that writers explore in their mysteries. In this fall's WHAT THE CAT SAW, a young woman struggling with grief finds herself oddly attuned to the thoughts in cat's minds, an ability that she decides is simply an attempt to avoid painful realities. But when Nela Farley walks into a strange apartment on a winter night and looks into the eyes of a cat, she learns more than is safe to know. Nela is forced to fight suspicion and danger when she encounters troubled hearts as an accident turns into murder. Then Nela looks again into the eyes of a cat and knows that death is near. 

I hope this Hallowe'en that revelers will enjoy sacks of candies and mysteries that vanquish ghosts and goblins.
