Echo Moonis my eighth published novel. Author? Maybe. In truth, I’m a girl from Long Island who fell in love with the South and ended up calling New England home. Along the way, ideas emerged, leading to the books I've written, and Echo Moonis among my favorites—it is the final novel in the Ghost Gifts series.

When Ghost Giftswas published, I never thought I’d write about ghosts again. One and done, as they say.

To my surprise, the book was the #1 bestseller in Kindle store during most of its debut month, and went on to become a RITA awards finalist, RT Book Reviews finalist, and winner of an Audie, for Best Paranormal Romance. Foretold, book two, was an Amazon Editors' Pick the month it debuted. I remain humbled by reader reaction and the

Thank you for the message and for reading Ghost Gifts! Gosh, I am really surprised I keep getting this question! I haven't thought seriously about a follow up to Levi & Aubrey's story--but I may have to!

I don't know? Maybe they do team up as a most unique investigative reporting duo! Stay tuned and we'll see!

For now, I'm so glad you enjoyed their story! If you have a chance to leave Amazon review it's always very much appreciated!

All the best,

What’s New? Well, Just About Everything…

While I’m out getting a new house in a new state with a semi-new life, I thought I’d get a new website. Welcome to Laura Spinella.net, 4.0. That’s an unusual number of websites for an author with eight books, but in full disclosure, my part-time gig happens to be working for AuthorBytes, a web developer. They specialize in author websites the way a skille...

Echo Moon by Laura Spinella
"Peter St. John is a tortured soul. Unable to escape violent memories of a past life, he shuts himself away from those who love him, instead pursuing a death-wish life. One person he can’t escape is the love of his life, Esme. Unfortunately, she li..." Read more of this review »
Echo Moon by Laura Spinella
"A wonderful read! I can hardly believe how expertly Laura has woven all 3 books of this trilogy together. Complex and thrilling! I would recommend to all my friends. Echo Moon is mystery, love, suspense, time travel- genius!"

“I'll be a son of a bitch," Patrick said.

Aidan could barely make his eyes move, forcing them from the papers onto him. "What?"

“I make a living, even life and death judgments, by reading peoples' body language, their raw reactions to situations. And I'd almos swear you've never seen those documents before."

"Well," Aidan said, swallowing hard, calculating what fame and money had cost him. "I'd say you're damn good at your job, because I haven't.”

“You know, Piggly Wiggly never could hang on to a night stock manager. Your math skills would be a plus, maybe even your Spanish, and you don't mind staying up late."

"Piggly Wiggly, wow. I hadn't thought about that. I'll swing by, pick up an application tomorrow. But if it doesn't pan out maybe ... Never mind, it's a crazy idea."

"No, tell me. I want to hear it."

"Well, just as a backup plan, I did hear that Sony has an opening. They're, um, they're looking for a rock star. The hours suck, but it's no worse than night stock manager at Pigs. I bet it pays better too."

Isabel stopped in her tracks, playfully slapping his arm. "Aidan, that's genius! That's what you should do! I've heard you sing, you can carry a decent tune." She looked him up and down. "With a little work, you can probably pull off the image."

He tugged on her arms until she was in his. "Only if you're sure. Only if it's what we want."

"Aidan, it's who you are. I've known it since the day we brought that first guitar here. I'd never want to take that away.”

“He leaned back, appalled at himself. She was a ***damn dose of truth serum. Things were falling out of his mouth as though his ability to sensor had short-circuited.”

No hay problema," Orlando agreed. "But you haven't said where?" His eyes grazed over the rumpled tux, Aiden not having thought about where the tattoo might go. Isabel had an answer.

"His neck."

"My neck?"

"Tiene cojones," Orlando said slyly grinning.

"Yes, your neck. It'll be your thing, you know, when you're famous--like an insigna. It's sexy and dangerous. Aidan's going to be a famous rock star, Orlando."

Aidan admired her confidence. "From her lips ..."

"I surely hope, mis amigos, because putting that thing on your neck does not say nine-to-fice employment.”

“Fitz called after him, "We'll see how far you get without me. Enjoy it Aidan, your nosedive to the discount rack, playing second-rate concert halls, being yesterday's news. That's all this will get you--that and your Catswallow trailer park bride." An old temper surged through Aidan, moving angrily at him.

"Aidan, don't!" she shouted.

Grabbing a shoulder, Aidan spun him about, landing a solid punch to his jaw, knocking the record-producing mogul onto the pavement. "Get it straight," he said, jerking his lapel. "She's from New Jersey.”
