Ghosts are commonplace in this dark and exciting world, and the psychics who deal with "the Problem" are rare.

Ghost Hunters: Pirates' Curse (Book 2 in the Ghost Hunters series) is filled with rich characters, spooky moments, and lots of action-packed fun. Perfect for fans of Neil Gaiman, Jonathan Stroud, and Stranger Things.

She Wore a Yellow Dress by John R. Cammidge
ISBN: 9780999855553 ~ Genre: Historical Fiction
Release Date: Feb. 16, 2021 ~ Publisher: Gatekeeper Press ~ Pages: 478
A spark is lit on Bonfire Night in Northern England in 1965, but for John and Jean-Louise the fireworks continue to explode for decades to come. An awkward Yorkshire farm boy with few prospects and a sophisticated town girl from Manchester, John and Jean-Louise blossom, grow - both together and apart - and find ways to compromise in this coming-of-age story that goes beyond the wedding where the curtain often drops.
She Wore a Yellow Dress by John R. Cammidge [February 16, 2021, Gatekeeper Press] is at once nostalgic and contemporary in the themes it explores so deftly. An autobiographical streak runs throughout that lends authenticity and depth of detail.
