All the Pretty Ghosts
Release Date: 05/04/15
Summary from Goodreads:
One year ago the Event swept through the world and wiped out the entire adult population. Now all the children are alone and fending for themselves.
Everly Hilton can see ghosts. Bridging the gap between the living and the dead, there are so many departed adults she can barely handle her ability.
With winter approaching, Everly can’t fight the dead any longer. She has to listen to the ghosts in order to understand what caused the Event and help keep the children alive.
What she doesn’t realise is that her association with the spirits runs far closer to home than she could ever imagine.
I pressed my arms against my side so she didn’t see them shaking. If there was something Perry loathed, it was a lack of strength. I couldn’t show any less in front of her. “I need to see Jet. Please take me to him.”
She eyed every inch of me, never once breaking her gaze. I wasn’t sure what she was looking for, but I hoped she didn’t find it. I didn’t want to give Perry any reason to attack me again. One of the other guys stepped closer. He was tall, even taller than Oliver. He had to be one of the older ones, eighteen if I had to guess. “She’s trespassing. Let me deal with her.”
Perry stood back, addressing him. “I’d like to see you deal with her.”
The man took another step closer, his hands already flexing and getting ready to do some serious harm to me. I stood as still as a statue, sure I had made a mistake in returning here. I shouldn’t have pushed my luck, it was stupid of me. And I had put Oliver in the firing line, making my mistake even worse.
The guy raised his fist, ready to strike. I clenched my jaw, waiting for the impact and pain to shoot through me. I’d survived their beating once before, maybe I could do it again. Oliver moved to get between us just as the guy was about to swing. He didn’t get a chance.
About the Author
Jamie was born into a big, crazy family of 6 children. Being the youngest, she always got away with anything and would never shut up. Constantly letting her imagination run wild, her teachers were often frustrated when her ‘What I did on the weekend’ stories contained bunyips and princesses.
Growing up, Jamie did the sensible things and obtained a Bachelor of Business degree from Southern Cross University and worked hard to gain her membership with the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Australia.
Yet nothing compared to writing. Quitting the rat race to spend quality time with her laptop named Lily, Jamie has written several novels and screenplays. Spanning a number of genres and mediums, Jamie writes whatever inspires her from ghost stories to teenage love stories to tantalising murder mysteries. Nothing is off limits.
A self-confessed television addict, dog lover, Taylor Swift fan, and ghost hunter, Jamie loves nothing more than the thrill of sharing her stories.
