The demon Silas has warned her to never reveal this ability, not even to her father who shares her power to communicate with the dead. Shes heeded his warning, but hiding it may no longer be an option.

Children are disappearing all over the Charlotte area. When their bodies are recovered, they are always the samebroken, beaten, and bruised. Fear is spiraling out of control in the Queen City as parents glance nervously around each corner, seeing the boogeyman in every shadow.

  1. The date posted says November 30, 2017, so unless yoou have access to a time machine (which would not surprise me in Matties world!) there must be a mistake here. ;-)

    Do you plan on writing a volum3 4.3 in the ghost files, and if so, do you have an expected release date? Also, I just read about the film option. Do you know if this will ever happen? Where are you at in that process?

    I just want to tell you how much I have enjoyed this series so far!! I started out just going to glance through the first book to make sure they were acceptable for my 13 year old grand daughter, and well, the rest is history. You are a talented writer and I am now a huge fan of yours! I am so glad you started putting your books in Kindle Unlimited, because I am a retired woman on a fixed income and was not able to read past 3.5 until they appeared there. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

    Looking forward to hearing back from you <3
