Almost immediately I fell into this story. I loved the writing, and the world building. I was fascinated by this story. I didn’t realize this was a short story until I hit the dreaded, “The End”. I found myself wanting to learn more about the characters, and wishing the story was longer.

I loved the idea of a ‘celebrity supernatural’ story. This husband and wife team of authors crafted an original!

Anne KelleherBorn and raised at the South Jersey shore, Anne Kelleher has been writing from the time she could read. Her first novel, about a pair of pirate sisters who sailed the Carribean looking for love and adventure, was completed when she was in high school. Annie’s been looking for the same ever since, mostly recently on the shores of the Pacific in Kailua-Kona, HI.

Her writing includes thirteen novels, one novella and two short stories. Her books have been translated into five languages, and Annie is delighted to know her books have been read and enjoyed in such faraway places as New Delhi, Seoul and Brisbane. Although her first love is sf/fantasy and paranormal romance, Annie is most proud of her “David” series, which was inspired by her youngest brother, who has Down Syndrome. Written at an elementary reading level, the stories appeal not only to developmentally disabled adults, but to anyone who seeks to understand what it’s like to be differently-abled.

A life-long learner who holds a BA from Johns Hopkins University, Annie is working on a Masters’ degree in Storytelling and Oral Traditions at The Graduate Institute in Bethany, CT. The mother of four, and grandmother of two, Annie looks forward to sharing her stories for years to come. Annie enjoys hearing from readers… find Annie online at
