By G G Collins

The shaman told Rachel: “Allow the power to flow through you. Don’t try to capture it. You wish only to borrow it.”

First book in the Rachel Blackstone Paranormal Mystery Series. From award-winning writer G G Collins.

All Rachel Blackstone wants is to talk with her father; solve the mystery of how he died. Using a Native American ceremony given to her by a shaman, she summons him in this paranormal fantasy/mystery. Instead, a soul intent on revenge slips through and threatens people she loves. Now the Santa Fe, New Mexico reporter must follow the evil spirit, uncover its purpose and send it back. The shape-shifter has horrific powers. Rachel is tormented by what she has unleashed. There’s more. She’s seeing dead people; which frankly give her the creeps. Some are helpful; others lead her away from the truth. One spirit, a lone wolf, seems to have an uncertain allegiance. What she, and friend Chloe, uncover is an earthly scam involving both the quick and the dead. Rachel must play a dangerous game of supernatural treasure hunt to stop the ruthless ghost. To survive, she must discover her own powers during a climatic storm of earth, wind and fire. To fail is to die.

Contains: mild horror effects, profanity, humor.

AUTHOR BIO: Walking several beats, reporter G G Collins racked up a lot of column inches, a few awards and a writing fellowship at Duke University. She never met a story she didn’t like.

There was another side lurking. This side of her personality is fond of the strange, the frightening, the paranormal. An avid reader since childhood, she began her reading career with Shirley Jackson’s “We Have Always Lived in the Castle.”

The day she discovered the Hopi ceremony to call back the dead, she just had to ask the question: What would happen if the wrong spirit returned? “Reluctant Medium” resulted and a new series was born.

FORTHCOMING: “Atomic Medium.” A time warp has opened in a popular Santa Fe retail store. The building was the main office of the Manhattan Project during its development in the 1940s. Evil has once again slipped into Santa Fe. It is using the portal to give the Germans the upper hand during WWII. Only one person has witnessed the entry of two dangerous men through the doorway to the past. If they can’t be stopped, history will be changed. For Rachel and Chloe, it’s no small task: just save the world.
