About the Author:
I write paranormal romantic comedy and cozy mystery (whew, that's a mouthful!) set in Banshee Creek, Virginia, The Most Haunted Town in the USA. My books feature feisty funny heroines dealing with a host of paranormal critters (ghosts, cryptids, pagan gods...the sky's the limit) and mysteries. They find magic, love and laughter and readers get to follow them every step of the way.
I love quirky towns with spooky stories, and, thanks to my books, I get to "live" in one year-around. In real life I live in a Minneapolis suburb (which is sadly lacking in ghosts) with my husband and three children and I'm still trying to adjust to the cold.

"Welcome to 666 Main Street," the striking dark-haired young woman intoned with a bright smile. "Satan's Own Shopping Strip."
Katalina Ramos stared at her, confused, and the woman's smile faded. She was opening one of the tidy brick shops that lined Main street. She was wearing a pink polo shirt with a cartoon ghost logo that read "Banshee Creek Bakery," and her nametag said "Patricia O'Dare - Owner - Ask Me About Our Vampire Churros."
Kat, in a silky white blouse and cream-colored trousers, was overdressed by comparison.
But the bakery owner's outfit was not surprising. Kat was, after all, in The Most Haunted Town in the USA. Everything in this place had a ghost or supernatural theme. She'd spent months researching the town and had found countless ghost stories and urban legends related to it. In fact, the town had been named for the eerie screeching sound made by its barn owls, which the early Scots-Irish settlers confused for the cries of the doomed ban-síde.
The local businesses took full advantage of their eccentric location. Driving in, she'd passed Poltergeist Pizza and a real estate agency that specialized in "slightly haunted" properties. There was also a paranormal investigations group and a Chinese restaurant named after a writer of Chinese ghost stories.
There was nothing about Satan, though.
"I'm not sure people want to shop with Lucifer," Kat replied carefully. "Not many people would get his sense of style."
"You're right," Patricia said with a heartfelt sigh. "Back to the drawing board. We do need a new marketing strategy for the shopping strip, though."
Kat nodded in sympathy. As a small business owner, she knew that marketing was a rhymes-with-witch. "The vampire churros sound good. They're probably a good start."
That made Patricia smile. "And they taste even better than they sound. They're spicy chocolate churros with a cream cheese and raspberry filling and they're our best sellers." She fiddled with the locks and opened the front door to the bakery. "I like your necklace, by the way."
"Thanks," Kat replied, fingering the piece. The tiger's eye quartz pendant was one of her earliest projects. She'd made it herself at the school workshop when she'd begun her jewelry design training. It was a simple piece—she'd learned a lot since that first year—but it was still her favorite.
The stone was supposed to increase self-confidence and bring good luck. Kat needed both of those things today.
