Ghostwriting Guest blog with Joyce and Jim Lavene (and we're talking about actual ghosts)

Writing about ghosts can take on many different forms – like the ghosts themselves. In Murderous Matrimony, and Perilous Pranks, the ghost is Wanda Le Fey. Wanda wants revenge for her murder.

Wanda wasn’t a pleasant person to be around when she was alive. Most people at Renaissance Faire Village in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina didn’t like her. She had a habit of being cruel when treating their aches and pains as the Village nurse. But that was nothing compared to what she can do to them as a ghost!

Her ex-husband, Shakespeare, has probably suffered the most. As her abilities develop, so does her torture of him. There’s only one person she likes less, and that’s Jessie Morton.
Jessie didn’t kill Wanda, but she did get revenge for a prank Wanda played on her by dyeing her blue from head to foot right before she was killed. Now it seems Wanda will go through eternity naked, and deep blue. That’s enough to make any ghost think of suitable ways to make someone unhappy.

One way that Wanda has made Jessie miserable is by ruining Jessie’s love life.  Chase, Jessie’s fiancé, and the Village Bailiff, can’t see Wanda. All he knows is that a cold wind seems to be blowing through their bedroom.

It’s only two weeks until Jessie and Chase’s wedding. Murder, and the Blue Lady - as Wanda has been called - are stalking Renaissance Village. Can Jessie find a way to handle Wanda – and find a killer?
