Book Description Dead and Missing (Book #2):
Sixteen-year-old Brittany Howland only knows one other girl, Jolie Livingston, who can communicate with the dead like herself. When Brittany takes Jolie’s haunt fishing to get him out of Jolie’s hair, he mysteriously disappears. Brittany isn’t sure how she’ll tell Jolie she lost her stupid ghost. Jolie thinks her dead best friend Drew has finally crossed over, but Brittany knows better. Just before Drew went missing, he revealed why he hasn’t hitchhiked to the afterlife, a secret Brittany swore she’d take to the grave.
Book Description for Date With the Dead (Book, #1):
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.
She 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
The origins of the RIPSTERS series:
The Ghost and Mrs. Muir is one of my favorite black and white movies. The romance between the captain and her always intrigued me. I’m also a huge fan of Ghost Hunters. Combining the two along with a bit of Nancy Drew mystery is where the series came from.
Drew’s story is based off an actual accidental suicide. I can’t imagine losing a child and wanted to catch that heartache in BURIED IN NEW ORLEANS, which comes next in the series.
Jolie is my nerdy Goth girl—cute and driven to finish the job. Like most of my characters, she’s a combination of several people I’ve known.
Brittany is one of the many Barbies I’ve known, and I don’t say that in a bad way. Many of my friends in Kentucky were runway gorgeous. They were also really nice. How do you compete with beauty and humility?
