"Ghost Mother is a moving, thrilling ride! I was so caught up in the mystery of the narrator's possible haunting, I couldn't stop reading until I learned the story's many secrets. I've read ALL the best haunted house novels, but none of them shocked me more at the conclusion than this mesmerizing plot! A must-read for those who love ghost stories..."

--Mona Susan Power, award-winning author of four books, most recently, A Council of Dolls

I'm grateful for this blurb from my dear friend and great writer Mona Susan Power.

I hope it makes you want to read the book! And if you do, please consider pre-ordering Ghost Mother!

Thank you so much for your support! xo Kelly

GHOST MOTHER at Barnes & Noble

My new novel GHOST MOTHER (Union Square & Co.) is available for pre-order through online bookstores, and will be available to purchase in bookstores on August 6, 2024. Whoo hoo! (That's the sound of my celebrating after having worked on the book for approximately 57 years... )

Please see links below to pre-order the novel, and if you like it, I'd be grateful for you to write a review on Goodreads, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc. (If you don't like it, don't worry about it..) 😅 If you're a blogger or reviewer who might be interested in writing an early review, please let me know, and I'll be glad to send you a digital copy of the galleys. 

Thank you for your interest and support! Let me know what you think! xo Kelly
