I don't do gory, but I can't find any spooky books, so I wrote the line of books I like to read. 'Angels from Ashes: Hour of the Wolf' is a novel with a Native American flavor, a sweet moral, a wedding - and several spooky elements. "True love is like a ghost. Many believe in it, but few encounter it."

In my opinion, the only thing better than reading a book is writing one ;)(less)

Good heavens, Beverly - somehow I missed your message. Somehow it fell between the cracks :( Yes, I 'will' look up The Final Gift! Apologies for missing this message!
Best regards,

Beverly Galante I think you would like my book: The Final Gift Beverly Galante Look it up on Amazon. It's a suspenseful mystery and may interest you because of the supernatural and references to reincarnation.
