Undead by Morning
A Short Story in the Taxi for the Dead Paranormal Mysteries
When Nashville Police Officer Skye Mertz wakes up in the hospital after a wreck, the prognosis is bad. The doctors don’t expect her to live until morning. Her husband, Jacob, also in the wreck, was dead at the scene. Their five-year-old daughter, Kate, will be alone.
Old magic, in the form of Abraham Lincoln Jones, comes out of the blue, offering another twenty years of life for twenty years of service to him. Skye can’t say no. Kate needs her, and her husband’s death was no accident. If it takes driving Abe’s Taxi for the Dead to protect Kate, and discover the truth, Skye is up for it.
“ . . . a good read with an interesting plot device that is very intriguing and I look forward to where the author takes Skye in this story where she gives up 20 years to be with her daughter. . . leads up to the new series by the creative team of Joyce and Jim Lavene.”
“A fantastic start to a new series! If you like your mysteries with a little paranormal element to them, then this is the one to get. This short story is very well written and leaves you chafing at the bit for the actual first novel in the series, due out in a March.”
~ Cheryl Green
The 1st novel in the Taxi for the Dead Paranormal Mysteries:
Broken Hearted Ghoul – coming March 4, 2014
It’s been two years since Skye Mertz agreed to drive Abe’s Taxi for the Dead, transporting his zombie workers back to the man who gave them an additional twenty years of life. She’s raising her daughter, with the help of her ghostly mother-in-law, and keeps looking for what killed her husband the night she died.
Now she has a partner—a housewife working off her zombie husband’s service—and she’s met a sorcerer with amnesia. It shouldn’t be surprising that a broken hearted ghoul, bent on getting revenge, should show up too. After all, there’s no rest for the dead.
