Book Description:

At sixteen, Gerald Dupickle faces his worst fear . . . college!

Awkward and shy, Gerald desperately wants to be part of the popular crowd-something he couldn’t accomplish in high school.

Gerald does his best to avoid the campus bullies, but after a brief run-in with the boys who wear black, he realizes things aren’t always what they appear to be.

After a ghostly encounter in the library, it’s the boys in black who come to his rescue. Fang and his team quickly realize Gerald has a gift-one that attracts ghosts.

But what happens when Gerald’s normal becomes paranormal?

Legend has it, a terrifying presence stalks the halls of the Blue Owl Inn, a decaying Victorian mansion. On his first ghost hunt, it’s Gerald who draws Lily out of hiding. Mesmerized that ghosts truly live amongst us, Gerald sets out to do more than just prove that they exist-he wants to help the spirits cross over to the other side.

But do the spirits want his help?

Steve Altier is at his chilling best in this new supernatural tale that’s certain to send shivers down the reader’s spine.

Meet the Author:

Steve Altier is a bestselling paranormal, mystery, suspense writer. Known for his multi-award-winning series, The Lizardville Ghost Stories, and bestseller, The Ghost Hunter. He also has a fun line of middle-grade stories, The Gabby and Maddox adventure series. Several of his works have appeared in the national literary magazine “Story Monsters Ink.”

Steve was born in a small town in central Pennsylvania, aka Lizardville where he grew up in the old dam keeper’s house. He currently lives in Florida with his wife. Steve has four daughters and a house full of cats.

He’s an avid reader who also enjoys bowling and spending time at amusement parks. He loves to travel, take trips to the beach, or just lay around the pool with family and friends. With his vivid imagination, he enjoys writing young adult fiction stories.

Steve had aspirations of being a writer when he was young. He took journalism courses in high school. Life, however, as with most people, took him on a different path. He joined the Air Force after high school and spent four years serving and protecting this country.

When asked if he would branch off into a different genre other than young adult books, Steve replied that maybe one day he’ll write an adult thriller.

Steve’s goal is to continue to work on his books, producing one or two a year. He indicated that it was a wonderful feeling and a sense of accomplishment to get the book written, work with the editors, illustrators and in the end, see it all come to life when it’s published.

He also likes to work with local charities specifically related to children’s hospitals and animal clinics.

Finally, when asked if there were any words of wisdom he would like to impart to his readership, he simply said, “Always follow your dreams.”
