Weird things tend to happen when you live in a haunted house — not that author/ghost hunter Alice Carpenter has a problem disciplining the ten resident ghosts in her lakeside log cabin near forgotten-time Six Gun, Texas.

Now two ghosts are creating mayhem!

Dead Man Ohio


There's a monster under the bed! No, wait, it's too big to fit there. It's stealing Alice's car! Our intrepid crew of ghost hunters is at it again, this time in Ohio, where ghosts from the state's long-standing history roam the woods, and mythological beasts exist only in lore. Or do they?

A Novella

It's Mardi Gras time in N'awlins, and guess who's partying? Alice has talked Twila into joining her, and of course, Trucker and Miss Molly are around. Even Granny makes an appearance. You don't think Granny Chisolm would miss a chance to catch a slew of beads, do you?

But despite Alice's insistence that she's not interested in that gorgeous Cajun detective, Jack Roucheau, Fate keeps throwing them together after they meet him over a new dead body. Love can never grow between them, however, Why, Jack doesn't believe in ghosts!

Come to the party city and watch as Twila is proven right about what Alice refuses to admit: that opposites do attract. Oh, and there are a couple of murders to solve, too. Billy Ray, a mystery writer who is the latest victim of a voodoo curse, and Elvira, once a voodoo queen in Storyville.

Dead Man Love is a prequel novella in the Dead Man Mystery Series. It's not foremost the answer to the murders, although that happens. Most importantly, it's love between two of our favorite characters and answers a question that our author, T. M. Simmons, always wondered about. How did Jack and Alice meet back then? She hopes you enjoy it!
