All James Caffery wanted was to finish high school in the city where he grew up. But when his family moves across the country a week before the start of senior year, everything changes. Instead of having tons of friends and being on the varsity basketball team, James is now stuck hanging out with the nerdiest kid in school.
With no one at school to talk to and both of his parents still at work, James decides to take the long way home. In a back alley, he finds an antique lamp buried in a pile of trash. He lights it, and realizes he can summon the ghost of a girl who died the year before. When he learns that she went to his new school, James is convinced that he’s not only found a new friend, but someone who can help him connect with the kids in his new school. But his new friend has problems of her own. It’s not long before he learns that reapers are after her, eager to capture the spirit that’s been evading them. Now, if he wants to keep his friend around, he’s going to have to track down the reapers before they can find her. The only problem? James knows exactly one thing about them: reapers never smile.

About the Author
I grew up in Sacramento, California. Ever since I was a kid, I've always loved books and would read anything I could get my hands on, including my mom's murder mysteries. I spent so much time reading that the school librarian knew me by sight after about a week and could spell my full name within a month.
I graduated from UC Davis with a degree in linguistics and no idea what to do with it. I started writing books after watching a particularly bad movie one night. I was so sure I could have done it better that I decided to give it a try. And while that story didn't survive the computer virus I got, it did inspire me to try writing stories of my own.
Currently I have three books available, one in the final stages of editing, and one being written.
