Sixteen-year-old Jolie Livingston’s closest and only friend Drew is this really hot dead guy, and it bites that the self-absorbed princesses at school cannot even see him. That’s right she can communicate with the dead. It’s the living she has trouble with. She and her mom inherited this awesome crib in Plymouth, MA. It’s quite a step-up from the homeless shelter in New Orleans, but there’s a catch. They can’t afford the past due mortgage, so Jolie’s working on that.
Jolie starts a ghost hunting business called Ripsters. Somehow she’s managed to recruit Brittany, a glamour SAP smothered in pink, and a techie allergic to ghosts. Brit actually thinks he resembles the R&B singer Chris Brown. All that pink has clouded her vision. They both have special talents Jolie’s hoping will be useful to their venture. Right now, they’re working for a family in need of major therapy due to a dead guy with a hole in his head.
Hayden, a really cute guy, who lost his Wiccan mother, wants to join them, but Jolie’s grandmother warned her about his kind. Not that it matters. Jolie seriously doubts a living guy as hot as Hayden will be interested in a girl cozy with the dead.
About this Author:
Chris literally has very few photos of herself, even though photography put her through college. Here she is with her sisters and daughter. Chris is the one with the vino.
Chris started out as an art major, then moved to bio-chem, hoping to play Victor Frankenstein as a genetic engineer or messing with people's minds as a psychiatrist. Just as she was about to graduate, she decided being broke for another four to ten years wouldn't work out for her adventurous spirt and traveling. She ended up with an electrical engineering degree then a masters. As it turns out, she should've finished her first novel twenty-five years ago and stuck in the make-believe world where she is happiest.
Her favorite authors as a child were Jack London, Thomas Tryon, Albert Payson Terhune, and Stephen King. There are too many too list as an adult, but best reads as of late are Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys and Wither by Lauren DeStefano.
Chris is a member of SCBWI and Pikes Peak Writers. She teaches classes on writing at workshops and conferences.
