About this title
When Scottie Brown, a New Orleans college student, is aggressively haunted by vivid nightmares and daytime apparitions, he begins a search for answers; unwittingly putting himself and those closest to him in a confrontation with evil. To defeat the energy that torments him, he recruits a team of paranormal investigators, friends from high school, and a psychic medium. Together, they pursue the ghosts of Scottie's ancestors in a haunted plantation deep in the Louisiana countryside. They uncover dark family secrets and the spiritual energy of a malevolent patriarch who projects an unholy prophecy that has deadly consequenes for all mankind. The power of an elusive mojo amulet becomes central to fighting Scottie's demons as the journey through the haunted mansion, filled with twists and turns, takes on a life of its own against time. Mojo is a fast-paced paranormal mystery-thriller. Edgy and fun, this book will show the reader how having faith in a power greater than ourselves will lift us through even the most unforseeable obstacles in life.From the Author:
Q. What excites you most about your book's topic? Why did you choose it?
A. I have always been fascinated with the paranormal and the idea that a part of the human personality survives physical death. I am a paranormal researcher in my spare time and as the founder of Synergy Paranormal Investigations, Harvard, NE. I spend nearly every weekend out searching haunted locations for evidence of the paranormal. I love ghost stories! We all tend to write about what we know and have passion for. I can't imagine writing about anything else. I also enjoy sharing my faith so my books give me an opportunity to do that as well.
Q. How long did the book take you from start to finish?
A. I have spent another eight months working on this book in addition to the original three months it took to put it together in the first place. Altogether, it took nearly one year to complete.
Q. What aspect of writing the book did you find particularly challenging?
A. The hardest part of writing is the editing. When you go back through the manuscript and decide what to leave in and what to take out. Every paragraph should move the story along when you are trying to build dramatic tension. Once in awhile you find a great piece of prose that you really like but it isn't really necessary to the story line. Thus, the dilemma; do you keep it or throw it out? Generally, it has to go! Sometimes I will write it down and save it for another day.
Q. What surprised you the most about the book writing process?
A. I was most surprised by the excitement of the creative process. When the creative juices are flowing and everything is falling into place it is an exhilarating experience. It can have its ups and downs but the highs are amazing.
Q. What do you hope your readers will gain from reading your book? A. I hope they will think about the power of faith in their lives. Prayer and trust in God can help us straighten out the unexpected curves life throws at us. We may not ever run into horrific demonic entities in the flesh but we all have our metaphoric demons to contend with. Faith can help us tackle those as well. I must admit though; I love a good scare. I hope my book makes the reader have a few chills up and down their spines along the way too.
Q. What projects are you currently working on?
A. I am working on the third installment of the Mojo Series. I originally planned to write a trilogy; publishing one book per year. However, the third book will not be completed by next summer. I am changing it up quite a bit from its original outline. The muse is definitely not satisfied thus far! I am also working on a Non-Fiction paranormal research book that will be based on Synergy's case files. I'm incredibly excited about the prospect of sharing my experiences and regaling real-world ghost hunting adventures.
Q. Is writing your sole career? If not, what else do you do?
A. No. I work full time as a Nursing Home Administrator and RN Consultant. I am also the founder of Synergy Paranormal Investigations, Harvard,NE. I have always wanted to be a part of the paranormal research community. In January of 2011 I made the decision to form the group and jump in with both feet. It has been an amazing ride! I have also had the opportunity to become a producer for Nebraska's longest running Paranormal radio program, Exploring Unexplained Phenomena, with host, Scott Colborn, at KZUM in Lincoln, NE. Scott has amazing guests on the program and it has been so educational for me. Exposure to some of the experts in the field has given me additional information and insight into the realm of paranormal exploration.
Q. Did you do any research for your books, or did you write from experience?
A. I did do some research about demons, and ghost hunting but mostly I wrote from experience. The next installment of the series should have the latest tools in paranormal investigation such as the "ghost box" and lasers to help the characters in their work.
