I love ghost stories, reading and writing them. Maybe it’s because when I was a kid my favorite cartoon was Casper the Friendly Ghost. Emphasis on friendly. I’m not into horror stories of ghosts and demonic spirits creating havoc for a person.
Remember the TV show The Ghost and Mrs. Muir?

The Ghost and Mrs. Muir
Now this ghost story is the kind I like.
How about that crazy movie, Ghostbusters? And one of my all-time favorites, Emmy award-winning Ghost with Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze?
I thoroughly enjoyed reading Marie Laval’s Little Pink Taxi and the ghosts in that novel. And if you'd like to read a series of ghost stories, check out Jo-Ann Carson’s, The Gambling Ghosts and The Ghost & Abby Mysteries.
I love stories with ghosts in them so much that I wrote a romantic suspense novel,
Deadly Undertaking. The setting is in a funeral home—the perfect place for a ghost or what I refer to as a shadow man. Henry was a fun character to write. He's a friendly ghost that is full of mischief, but also very caring.
|Deadly Undertaking by J.Q. Rose|
A handsome detective,
a shadow man, and a murder victim
kill Lauren's plan for a simple life.
Why is Henry haunting the funeral home? Is he the key to answer why a murdered man was left in the garage of the funeral home and hidden between the funeral coach and flower car? I mean, everyone expects bodies to be at a funeral home, but really!
