My first novel, The Gardener, is uploading on Smashwords tonight. This novel was a finalist in the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers Colorado Gold Contest in 2007. Since then, it has been nipped, tucked, and completely overhauled into a shiny new version. You can download a sample or purchase at: http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/27679.
In the small town of Calathia, Kansas, Opal Peabody performs a seance to contact Virginia Blake's dead husband, but another spirit answers the call. Over a hundred years back, he was the gardener for one of Virginia's ancestors. But, he was also a murderer. When Virginia mysteriously dies, her granddaughter, Georgia, an art gallery owner from New York City, inherits the house. The spirit grows stronger as her kills, and the bodies begin to pile up in Calathia. Opal is desperate to find a way to banish him. Can she do it before it's too late for Georgia?
