Legend Trip

Happiness is more than just a state of mind.

Greenville, South Carolina, 1972

Penelope’s father is gone, again. His ghost doesn’t haunt the home they used to share anymore— not since a rogue magician tried to kill her and her friends there. She’s not ready to let him go, though, and his absence has left her adrift.

Zed, meanwhile, is preoccupied with his new relationship, but the strain of having to hide his involvement with Jake Dempsey threatens to push them apart, not to mention Jake’s disturbing prophetic visions. At the same time, Charles is pulled farther into the alternate world of the enchanting jazz singer Millie Priest. As the date of her real-life death draws closer, Charles desperately tries to piece together how she was killed, without knowing if he can stop her murder, or if he should.

But the trouble with the Brown family never seems to end. When Ephraim Brown is abducted by supernatural forces, the trio must once again come together to save him. Their only clue is a cryptic one-word message—happiness. Could it also be the key to finally learning all the secrets Penelope’s father kept from her?

How Much Research Should You Do For Your Book?

Much has been written about the enormous importance of looking things up before you write about them so as to avoid ranking too high on the Dan Brown Scale of Did Not Do The Research—but there’s another side to this particular coin. As someone who spends a hell of a lot of time looking stuff up on the internet, I can affirm that it is, in fact, possible to do more research than you can actually use.
