I’m thrilled to share with you more information about the box set The Good, The Bad and The Ghostly. To help my readers learn more about the stories I’ve been asking all sorts of question. Here’s the one for today:
Tell us a little about the ghost in your story?

My story lands on the more ‘serious’ side of spectrum when it comes to theme. My ghost is a man who met with an unfortunate accident and passed on, leaving a widow and a young son behind. Ranch life in the late 1800s was tough, especially for a woman alone in this vast wilderness. The ghost realizes the huge dilemma she now faces and is determined to help her through the trials and tribulations looming on the horizon.

Nettie McKee is the great, great grandmother of Konnor McKee. He is the oldest son and pushing thirty. Nettie wants to see him married to the right girl. Unfortunately, he brings home the wrong girl and Nettie has to set things straight.

My ghost haunts the best saloon in Reno, The Blade. The saloon is the center of a lot of the action in 1880s Reno and the ghost is causing so much fear that the employees have walked out and refuse to come back until the horrible ghostly sounds stop. Every night, at exactly the same time, a terrible keening, shrill and eerie, fills the place. The owner of the saloon, Katherine Busbee, is a business woman and she knows that if the ghost stays, the saloon will have to close. She hires Agent Cole Swansby to get rid of the ghost before Preston Asbury, the President of Midas Mines, shows up in Reno. He’s a big spender and she can’t afford to lose his business. It will take every tool Cole has to get to the bottom of the ghostly mystery.

That would ruin the surprise for the reader.
Well, I some surprises so I’m going to keep some things to myself. I can tell you a little bit though. Healy has been called in on this case because a rancher, Abbott Foster, can’t consummate his marriage to his new mail-order bride because every time he tries a menacing spirit appears.
The ghost in my story is Abbott’s first wife, Cora. The couple moved to Arizona from Texas as young newlyweds. Healy can see and talk to Cora but nobody else can. Again, that’s all I can say on the subject of Cora because I don’t want to give too much away.

In the 1880s, the term poltergeist (for "noisy ghost") had only recently been coined in Germany—and these German settlers bring not only the term with them, but also an actual poltergeist!

Hattie sees quite a few ghosts in her travels. In fact, they can’t seem to leave her alone. But there is a big problem brewing in Carolina City.
Andrea Downing said:
As I said, Lizzie, my heroine, is the ghost. She finds she has time traveled back from contemporary St. Louis to 1800s Wyoming. She discovers that, in a former life, she was murdered during a robbery on her husband’s ranch. She’s returned there due to unfinished business but always rather longs to get back to her real life, despite the fact she was married to a hot cowboy/rancher.
