GHOST GIRL IN SHADOW BAY is a teen haunted house thriller.

Three years after her father was killed, sixteen-year-old Peyton Delaney, her mother, Melody, and new stepfather, Vance McIntyre, relocate to Shadow Bay, Minnesota and move into an old Victorian.

They are unaware of the house’s dark history–fifty years ago, jealous husband snapped, murdering his wife, her lover, and sixteen-year-old daughter, before killing himself.

But when Peyton begins to have nightmares of the crime and is haunted by a ghostly girl named Caitlyn, she begins to investigate with help of caretaker’s cute son, Bryant.

As the two delve into the supernatural mystery surrounding the house, they discover that the events that led to the tragedy of fifty years ago are somehow intertwined with the present.

Or, in other words, history is repeating itself and Peyton, Bryant, and their parents are being drawn into a disturbing case of jealousy, possession, revenge, and murder, while seemingly powerless to prevent the inevitable from taking place all over again.

Fans of R. L Stine, Caroline Cooney, and Meg Cabot will love.

GHOST GIRL IN SHADOW BAY  is available from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Smashwords, Amazon UK and Google Books.
