Lorna Collins

Author Lorna Collinsabout this book: A young woman, Nan Burton, inherits a small beach cottage from a great-great-aunt, only to discover it still has a resident: the ghost of Max Murdoch (aka Maxine Du Bois) a romance author who died thirty years before. She also inherits the aunt's pampered little dog, Mitzy. Nan loves the house, and her financial situation leaves her no other choice but to stay and make peace with the ghost.

But he doesn't want peace. He wants her to complete his partially-finished final manuscript, believing he has remained stuck there for that purpose. She's the first person who can hear him, so he decides she's the obvious choice.

However, the manuscript is hopelessly out-of-date, and Nan's a computer programmer, not a writer. "I don't do words," she states emphatically.

I heard the words 'ghost writer' and asked a question: What if the ghost WAS the writer? The story flowed from that premise.

This is a cross-genre book. It's fantasy because of the ghost. it's a mystery because no one knows what happened to the ghost's fortune. And there's a bit of romance as well.

Since we live in Dana Point, California and know this area of the coast well, Laguna Beach seemed like a great location for the book. I mention several real businesses. They are all places I love to visit, and those familiar with this area will recognize them at once.
