Six Silly Things That Inspired White Light
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Emma never dreamed of being a super-sleuth. In her mind, she’s more Scooby Doo than Nancy Drew and when her nosy neighbor, Mrs. Perkins, drags her to an anniversary party to solve a mystery, she rolls her eyes, buys a box of chocolates and hops in the car.
What’s a party without an attack on its host—or more accurately on the host’s grandson, sparking an allergic reaction and moving the party to the hospital waiting room. Suddenly, everyone is a suspect. Emma and Mrs. Perkins, along with Great Aunt Alice (a spirit with boundary issues who keeps stepping into Emma’s body like a new dress and playing matchmaker), dive into an investigation that almost gets Emma killed along with the man they are trying to protect. With so many reasons to kill him and so much to be gained if he died, Emma and Mrs. Perkins must unravel the tenuous ties that point to every member of his family as potential killers.
Even if it means going back to the psych ward, Emma will protect her friend and this innocent man. What good is freedom if it’s haunted with guilt?

Six Silly Things That Inspired White Light
- Love of the paranormal – I’ve always loved the idea of ghosts or spirits and the thought that they hang around and watch over us. How frustrating it must be to see but not be seen or feel but not be felt. Well, not by everyone at least.
- Exploring the younger/older woman dynamic – I watched the Gilmore Girls and loved it! I found the three women drove each other mad, brought out the worst and the best in each other.
- Getting to tell off a cop – There is a moment in the story where I face one of my greatest fears, facing a bully of a cop. One character takes him on and puts him in his place. Ah, that felt so good.
- Revealing my imaginary small town – I moved when I was eighteen and didn’t come back to stay until my fifties. Somewhere between when I left and when I got back the place had changed. No surprise, but I still tried to capture it, coming out somewhere in the middle.
- Making a puzzle – I almost shouted, “Challenge Accepted!” when I decided to try writing a cozy mystery. Could I hide the clues? Could I reveal the mystery at a good pace? I guess, I’ll find out when the reviews come in.
- Sharing my weird sense of humor – You may notice some humor in the work. *swallows* Or at least I hope you do.
What inspires you? Anything that you’d care to share.

She is easy to find though, if you know the magic word — emaginette. Do an internet search using it and you’ll see what I mean.

I like your inspirations, Anna! I find the paranormal interesting and like to be open-minded about all the possibilities. I could never write a mystery, though. My creativity just doesn’t bend that way. However, trying to solve them is fun. 🙂
Thanks so much for hosting me, Juneta. 🙂
