As a young girl, one of my best friends told me that we HAD to hold our breath when her mother drove us past the large cemetery in our town. If we didn’t, there was a chance we could breathe in an EVIL SPIRIT that was reluctant to crossover. Although I’ve passed several cemeteries in my life, and have not since held my breath, her words still linger in the back of my mind every time I see one.
The underlying spookiness and superstitious folklore of cemeteries is the reason I chose to use one as a key setting in my book. My characters will be forced to overcome their fears of “walking on dead people” in order to reveal a life-threatening secret. Stay tuned for more…
