As an award-winning corporate copywriter, Stacey Kade has written about everything from backhoe loaders to breast pumps. But she prefers to make things up instead.
From her first childhood scribbles about a magical necklace that would turn people into cats, Stacey has long been fascinated with what happens when the “ordinary” bumps up against “out of this world.” What if aliens landed on Earth? What if the afterlife is really just another dimension?
She lives in the Chicago suburbs with her husband, Greg, and their three retired racing greyhounds, Joezooka (Joe), Tall Walker (Walker) and SheWearsThePants (Pansy). When she’s not reading or writing, you’ll likely find her parked in front of the television with her Roswell DVDs, staring rapturously at Jason Behr.
Want to learn more about THE GHOST AND THE GOTH'S characters? Well you're in luck! Stacey's going to give us some inside info on these wonderful teens.
1 . Heroine's name, age, occupation: Alona Dare, 18 (at age of death), spirit
2 . Hero's name, age, occupation: Will Killian, 18, busboy and ghost-talker
3 . Heroine's favorite food: Well, she’s dead, so no more eating. But the way she talks about Krispy Kreme makes me think that would be her choice. : )
4 . One thing the hero would never be caught dead doing: openly declaring himself as a ghost-talker.
5 . Subgenre: YA paranormal romance
6 . What do you think readers will like best about this book? I hope they find it funny and entertaining, an escape from regular life.
Thanks for stopping by Stacey!
After a close encounter with the front end of a school bus, Alona Dare goes from Homecoming Queen to Queen of the Dead. Now she’s stuck here in spirit form with no sign of the big, bright light coming to take her away. To make matters worse, the only person who might be able to help her is Will Killian, a total loser/outcast type who hates the social elite. He alone can see and hear her, but he wants nothing to do with the former mean girl of Groundsboro High.
Can they get over their mutual distrust—and this weird attraction between them—to work together before Alona vanishes for good and Will is locked up for seeing things that don’t exist?
