The Ghost Tree

2016 INDIES Finalist
Finalist, Horror (Adult Fiction)

Spirited defense lawyer Liberty Butler finds herself in the middle of another drama, which she handles with trademark snark and flair. The Ghost Tree is the contemporary tale of a paranormal legend that traces back to a haunted plantation in 17th century Scotland. MacAoidh Armstrong, “Kie” to his friends, purchases The Ring Steading in Auchencairn as a solitary retreat, but violent and inexplicable events force him to hire a private investigator and lawyer, none other than former Detective Chief Inspector Andrew Prendergast and Libby herself.

A marriage of the supernatural and rational, Kie and Libby face off against angry poltergeists and the ghosts of their pasts as a team of parapsychologists, suspicious neighbors, trespassing journalists, and one overbearing mother converge around the old ghost tree. An intricate tale that is emotional and chilling yet spelled with humor and romance.
