Resurrecting Harry, Resurrecting a Legend
I knew when I decided to write a book about a reincarnated Harry Houdini, that I was treading on thin ice. I wasn’t just writing an alternate timeline for an historical figure, I was adding a new fictional tale to the life of legend. But, when the idea of an escape artist who could escape death hit me, I know Houdini was the only potential star for this story.
I combatted my fears with research and by writing a story that was about more than the act, and about more than the real life man and woman. Resurrecting Harry is about learning from our past mistakes and understanding that each day is a gift we’re given and not to be squandered.
I’ve been asked if it was harder to write about (fictional) real-life characters than the characters I completely make up in my head. The answer: not really. If anything, it was easier. I’m a pantster (wite by the seat of my pants). So, when I’m working with characters that I’m building from the ground up, my first fifty pages end up uneven. The characters say and do odd things until I figure out their personality. With Resurrecting Harry, I researched Bess and Harry’s life and felt like I had sense of who they were. Quite the pair, both of them were determined and both worked hard for their eventual success. It didn’t take me long to figure them out, and to begin writing them in a consistent way.
It is my hope that when you read Resurrecting Harry, I’m able to take you to the make believe time and enjoy a new happily-ever-after for these legendary people.

Can the greatest escape artist ever known break the grim reaper’s chains to save the only woman he’s ever loved?
In order to save Bess from self-destruction, Harry Houdini puts his afterlife on the line by entering a wager with purgatory’s keeper. He gives Harry a younger face and body, and a new name: Erich Welch.
Bess clings to his promise to deliver a coded message from beyond the grave, determined to provide the bridge for him to cross, even if that means befriending her husband's sworn enemy.
Erich needs to help Bess over her loss and put her on the road to healing, but will any good come from resurrecting Harry?
