Everyone deserves one last goodbye.


As far back as Grace Carter could remember, she’d been able to communicate with the deceased. Of course, working in her family’s mortuary put her in constant contact with those who had crossed over, if she didn’t take steps to block them out, which she preferred to do. However, some spirits are stronger than others…

 

 
Nora Campbell had nearly been ready to die, but she still had some unfinished business. From the other side, she found the woman she wanted her grandson to fall in love with, and she put her matchmaking plan in motion. Nora was insistent that Grace get a message to her grandson, TV reporter Matthew Campbell, and together they could pass on the last goodbyes of those who had passed.
 

 

Only now Grace must convince Matthew she is in touch with his grandmother and not some crazy woman who spends all her time with the deceased.

 

Snippet:
When she looked out over her yard, she saw Matthew, shovel in hand, cursing at a rose bush he was planting in her tiny garden.
Joy bubbled in her chest as she leaned out over the railing.
“What are you doing? I thought you were at a funeral.”
He looked up at her and wiped the back of his hand over his brow. “Funerals are depressing. Especially that one. I gave my condolences and left as quickly as I could.”
“And now what are you doing?”
“Well, come see,” he said and flashed her a smile that radiated up to her.
Grace hurried down the steps toward Matthew.
“Grandma wanted you to have a rosebush too.” He held out his hand as if to show her the bush. “Now you have your very own Nora Campbell roses.”
She felt the tears sting her eyes, and her words jumbled in her throat. For a moment she could only stand and admire the beauty that had been planted in her yard.
“I am truly honored.”
“You should be. She thinks the world of you.”
That made her giggle. “How do you know that?”
“Because my grandmother was a good judge of character. She chose people to be in her life only if they would matter throughout it. Grace, she chose you in death, and that’s a lot longer than life.”
Grace pressed her hand to her chest. “Matthew, that was very sweet.”

Snippet:
Sundays in an empty office had always been one of Jason’s favorite times. All businessall to himself.
He was a bit of a glutton that way. He liked his work. Early mornings, late at nights, and weekends were when he thrived. During the day he got caught up in watching the masses work. Everyone had a different methoda different style. There was the meeting maker who just loved to organize people into one place at one time. How many meetings had he been to where nothing had been covered? Then there was the one with the day planner in hand who had everything color coordinated. Did they spend more time on highlighting things than they did on the actual events? His favorite was the chaos organized. The people who had papers all over their desk, looked as if they’d been tasered, and yet knew right where everything wasthose were the people he enjoyed the most. They weren’t looking for his approval, they were there to get a job done.
He supposed, in a sense, he was the latter of the organized, however, usually being the supervisor or boss, he had to look like the color-coordinated person. Maybe that was why he liked working when everyone else was gone. He could live in his chaos and no one could see it.
As he went over the list of potential new clients that William had provided him with, he heard the sound of the elevator and a door. Maybe he wasn’t the only person who coveted Sundays in the office.
Pushing back from his desk, he slowly walked to his office door and listened again. Yes, someone was on the floor, and it didn’t sound like housekeeping.
He walked along the corridor flanked with windowed offices and cubicles. His sneakers made no noise on the carpet. There had been no fear that it might be an intruder, as someone would have had to have the key to the elevator to arrive on the floor.
As he turned the corner, he noticed the light in the office closest to the reception area. The office where he’d met Chloe on Friday.
Giving it some thought as he slowly and quietly moved toward her office, he took her as the color-coded type of organizer. Yeah, she was no nonsense and ready to take over the world.
He was glad she was there. It would give them some time to get to know one another. Maybe he could get some insight as to why she’d looked so frazzled when he’d introduced himself as the Account Manager.
Jason turned the corner to her office, a smile at the ready, and friendly conversation lined up in his mind as a stapler flew through the air nailing him right in the forehead.
He stumbled back, hitting one of the walls of a nearby cubicle before falling to the floor with blood dripping in his eye from where he’d collided with the stapler.
“Oh-my-God!”
He heard the trembling voice before he saw the fuzzy image of the woman in yoga pants and an oversized sweat shirt kneeling down in front of him.
“I’m sorry. I’m so sorry.” She stood, knocking her knee into his side as she tore tissues from a box on a random desk and pressed them to his head. “I never have anyone in here on Sundays. I didn’t know anyone was here. I saw you lurking, and
“I wasn’t lurking.”
“You were lurking.” She sat down next to him on the floor. “I think I should take you to emergency care. You might need stitches.”
“It’ll be a tale for tomorrow, that’s for sure,” he said as he tried to sit up and steady himself. “I’m sorry I scared you.”
“Seriously, I’m sorry. I’m all worked up, and I’ve been on the road for hours, I’m a little punchy. Where’s your coat? I’ll take you for stitches.”
Jason’s head pounded, but he couldn’t help but use that smile he’d been saving as he looked up at her.
Her brown hair was tossed up in one of those messy buns, and she had no makeup on. The sweatshirt said Aubrey Heights High School on it, and it had been worn many, many times. She looked much different than the uptight professional he’d met on Friday. Maybe it was the injury to his head, but something stirred in him to want to kiss her.

What is True Death?

Sunday, July 12th, 2015

I began writing in high school after my family moved to Chicago from Michigan, leaving behind the first girl I fell for. I lost touch with her and knew she enjoyed reading books, so I decided that I would write a book and get her attention. At the time I wasn’t big into reading, in fact I had only finished one book series in my life to that point, but once I started writing I realized how much fun it was to create whole new worlds and watch the story play itself out on the pages. That girl and I have parted ways but I still thank her for allowing me to find my passion in life.

What makes me passionate about writing is being a creator to a world that never existed before I thought of them. To watch the story play out from my head to the paper and ink, its a feeling that is hard to describe. With True Despair, the third book in the True Death series I have written, I watched a scene play out differently on the pages them it did in my head, it was amazing. Seeing my story take on (more…)
