The Soul Cutter is hunting again.

Seventeen-year-old Élan spends her free time videoing psychic scams and outing them online. Skepticism makes life safe—all the ghosts Élan encounters are fakes. When her estranged mother disappears from a film shoot in Egypt, Élan puts her medium-busting activities on hold and joins the search.

In Egypt, the superstitious film crew sucks at finding her mom. When a hotel guest is killed, whispers start—the locals think their legendary Soul Cutter has come back from the dead. Élan’s only ally is Ramsey, a film-crew intern, but he’s arrogant, stubborn—and hiding dangerous secrets.

When Élan discovers the Soul Cutter is no scam, she finds herself locked in a deadly battle against a supernatural killer with more than her mother’s life at stake.

Élan is fighting for her very soul.


Julie coverThe Ghosts of Aquinnah

A brilliant flash of light transcends through time.

Another freezes a cloaked figure within a frame of salty mist as waves crash against a rocky shore. Her harrowing expression shadows the beacon to a pinprick.

By the next blaze, she is gone. Only the lighthouse remains.

Hannah’s eyes blink in step with each heartbeat. Images of her deceased parents and Martha’s Vineyard explode like firecrackers inside her mind.

She shakes her head.

For weeks this eerie woman dressed in nineteenth century garb has been haunting my webcam, but tonight she stared into my soul.

Why? …

Who is she? …

Casting aside months of research on historic lighthouses, Hannah drives to the coast and boards a ferry.

What is the strange connection she has to this mysterious woman suspended in time?

Hannah finds out.

But, it’s not at all what she expects …

Hannah unravels a century old murder.

  1. Those pictures are so stunning, it looks like someone painted them from their imagination. Wow! The Greek isles have everything – beautiful scenery and impressive archeological sites. Great choice, Sam! Thanks for joining the blog hop. 🙂


  2. I had never heard of this island either. Amazing!! I’m like Magaly, I want to hop in your suitcase when you go. The photos look almost too gorgeous to be real! It’s like a magical island.
    Thanks so much for taking part in our Hop!


  3. Those photos are absolutely gorgeous! My family had the opportunity to move to Greece when I was a kid, but for various reasons we ended up not doing so. It makes me question my and my husband’s decision to not take out-of-country positions he’s been offered, but we also like to be close to my big family.
