99¢ eBook Sale! (Regular Price $4.50)
The Ghost Who Loved Diamonds


While the first book in the Haunting Danielle series is normally priced just 99¢ (eBook format), the other books in the series are priced at $4.50 each. Except for right now.

The Ghost Who Loved Diamonds (Book 2) is currently on sale for just 99¢ at major eBook venues. Its price will return to $4.50 mid-June 2017.

If you already have the eBook, you might still be interested in the sale. For those who bought the eBook from somewhere other than Amazon and are interested in purchasing the audio version through Audible, it is cheaper to pick up the eBook from Amazon for the sale price, and then buy the audiobook, assuming you are an Audible member. (Audiobook prices subject to change.)

If you have a friend who is just starting the series, you might want to tell them to grab the eBook before it returns to its regular price mid-June.

Happy reading!

Haunting Danielle Audio Books


The first three books in the Haunting Danielle series are now available on audiobook format.

For those who belong to Audible and have purchased the eBooks on Amazon, you can get the audio versions of books one and two for less than three bucks each. It appears to be a special price, so I don’t know how long it will last.

I’ve been happy with the narrator, Romy Nordlinger, a talented actress. I believe she’s captured Danielle and Lily’s personalities in her reading. I’ll admit, I’m never completely satisfied when a female narrator does the male voices—and I am rarely satisfied when a male narrator reads the lines of a female character. So basically, the only way I will ever be completely satisfied—get a male and female narrator for each book—hahaha. Well, I don’t think that is going to happen.

There is also one other issue I wanted to point out. It’s not really the narrator’s fault—it’s probably mine and what happens when we try to take written words to audio format. During the story, there are times a character may think something. It is usually Danielle, silently making comments about Walt, who most people are unaware even exists.

In the book, I sometimes include “she thought” or something like that. But often, I just present the thought after a comment, out of quotes and in italic. For the reader, it is obviously a thought. But unfortunately, when taken to an audiobook, some listeners may be confused as to why Danielle is talking about Walt to a person who is unaware of him.

I don’t think it is a major issue, and once explained, I think it will be obvious what is going on when listening to one of the books.

Overall—I am exceedingly pleased and have no regrets as to the choice of narrator. For those who choose to listen to the stories, I hope you enjoy the audiobooks as much as I have.

The Ghost of Marlow House

The Ghost Who Loved Diamonds

The Ghost Who Wasn’t

Where am I taking the Haunting Danielle series?


I’ll be getting The Ghost Who Lied back from my editor this weekend. It will be released on May 31, 2017. This is my 13th book in the Haunting Danielle series.

When I wrote The Ghost of Marlow House (Book 1), I wasn’t sure exactly where the series was going. I knew the smaller stories I wanted to tell, but for the long haul I hadn’t yet made that commitment as to the direction it would ultimately go. I had several ideas, but until I got to know the characters better, I couldn’t make that commitment.

As the books came out, I received feedback from readers regarding what they wanted for Danielle. It seemed most of them wanted her to find true love—yet with whom and how—that they could not agree on.

Some wanted her to work it out with Joe. Others wanted it to be Chris, while others wanted Chris to go away. Many wanted Walt and offered solutions to get the two together.

For those new to this blog or unfamiliar with the Haunting Danielle Series, let me explain—it isn’t a romance series. It’s a paranormal cozy mystery series.  But even within that genre, readers want their favorite characters to find true love.

With The Ghost Who Lied—the book coming out the end of this month—I have finally made the commitment. To get to where I intend to take the story will involve at least four more books after this new release. While each book will continue to be a complete story, you will see the future stories unfolding as each one is released until we get to where I intend to take Danielle.

Don’t assume I plan to end the series when Danielle completes this particular journey. That will be up to my readers. In fact, I see this journey’s end as a new beginning for Danielle and more stories ahead.

However, as I add more books, one thing I don’t want, is for readers to moan, “enough already, this series is done”—before I eventually wrap it up. I occasionally get a review where a reader believes the series has already worn out its welcome. However, I get far more comments from readers where they urge me to write more books. I will happily do that, providing I still have stories to tell—and readers who want to read them.
