Grayson is a teen character from my new book, Whispers From the Past. He is a senior in high school, getting ready to graduate, and he works part-time in Colonial Williamsburg giving ghost tours at night. His parents are divorced and he has a dual citizenship, dividing his time between the USA and England. He makes a new friend who shares similarities with him, but as he approaches graduation, strange and unexplained things start happening to him. Things he wouldn't dare
Today's character I'd like you to meet is Jason Barnes.

In my book, I let Scarlett's son, Tyler, name this dog Harry after his favorite book character, Harry Potter. I'm a big fan of those books and movies, so I couldn't resist. One of th

I confess I am the same way, except I do have my yearly mammograms. My mother also had Alzheimer’s, which is the worst disease I’ve seen.

In my Angel books, "Starlight Wishes" and "Sunrise Kisses," I mention a lighthouse called False Cape Light. This is a fictitious lighthouse. I needed a secluded, abandoned place on the beach in my stories, so I took liberties as a fiction writer and created one. There really is an old lighthouse in Virginia Beach, but it's not located where I have it in my books. It is the Cape Henry Lighthouse, located in the northern part of Virginia Beach on the Army base called Fort S
