On the road to discovering his mother's murder, sixteen-year-old Thomas Patrick Henry discovers a secret his father kept from him for years. Tom thought Dad's secret put him in danger, Mom's secret his far worse. Magic. Witches. Ancient book of spells. Magic Amulet. Ghosts. Demons. Tom never thought these things existed until he is face to face with them. There is nothing else to do but destroy the demons before someone else he loves dies. He already lost his mom and a close friend because this secret was kept from him. No one else will die. No one else will be possessed. Tom faces his demos. A mother's love gives him the strength to slay his demons.  
Hi, I'm Kay LaLone author of Ghostly Clues and now my new book Family Secret. No Family Secret is not based on my family. (but they are my support and inspiration). In the picture is my husband, three sons, daughter-in-law, and my granddaughter. I live in Michigan, out in the country surrounded by corn field (which can be kind of creepy especially at night). I love to get up every morning and write about ghosts, the paranormal, and things that go bump in the night. I write PB, MG, and YA novels. No matter the books I write, I want my readers to feel like the have met a new friend. I'm a avid reader of just about any type of book. (mystery, paranormal, and ghost stories are my favorite). I do reviews and post them on my blog. I love to collect old books, antiques and collectibles. You can find most of my antiques selling on ebay, fleamarkets, and my antique shop.

Back Cover:

The sweet scent of lilacs permeates the air around Grandma’s gravesite. Only Sarah Kay can smell Grandma’s favorite flower, and they’re not even in bloom.

Sarah Kay and her best friend, Mary Jane, believe the lilacs are a sign from Grandma’s ghost. The girls follow one ghostly clue after another, uncovering a secret that Mom never wanted Sarah Kay to know.

Grandma makes sure Sarah Kay gets the message even from the grave. As the evidence piles up, Mom still refuses to accept the possibility Sarah Kay’s father is alive.

Sarah Kay finds Dad’s parents. A set of grandparents she didn’t realize existed. They make it clear her father is alive but days and miles separate the father and daughter reunion because Dad is a truck driver on a long haul.

Sarah Kay waits. The news reports a fatal car accident involving a semi and Sarah Kay fears the worse. She runs away which leads to Dad and the truth, Mom wanted Dad to remain dead.

Dad had faked his death so why not just stay dead.  The ghostly clues of Grandma wouldn’t allow Dad to remain dead to Sarah Kay.

<![CDATA[Happy Birthday Ghostly Clues]]>Sat, 23 Nov 2013 21:31:26 GMThttp://kaylalone.weebly.com/blog/happy-birthday-ghostly-clues
Wow! I can't believe Ghostly Clues was released a year ago. Time sure flies when you're having fun. This past year has been fun learning what it is like to be a published author. I've been busy writing and I can't wait to have another book published. So stay tuned.

The sweet scent of lilacs permeates the air around
Grandma’s gravesite. Only Sarah Kay can smell Grandma’s favorite flower, and they’re not even in bloom.

Sarah Kay and her best friend, Mary Jane, believe the lilacs are a sign from Grandma’s ghost. The girls follow one ghostly clue after another, uncovering a secret that Mom never wanted Sarah Kay to know. 
 
Grandma makes sure Sarah Kay gets the message even from the grave. 


Excerpt 

The house was blanketed in a quiet slumber. I snuggled under the sleeping bag with Allison, trying not to think about ghosts, as I drifted to sleep. 

Random pictures floated in my mind like ghostly
images.

 I tiptoed among tombstones and my heart ached as if I had lost something or someone. He had to be here, somewhere. The gravestones rose like stone walls. No names engraved on them. No dates. No R.I.P. Nothing. Just smooth, flat stones. Ghosts—grayish, smoky forms with black eyes—floated
over the tombstones.I shivered, suddenly cold, freezing. My breath visible like a little ghost. I didn’t want to look at the ghost anymore so I looked down at my feet. A tombstone with Grandma’s name appeared out of nowhere. The earth moved. The dirt around the headstone broke
away and gnarled fingers clawed their way into the air, searching, grasping. Shriveled fingers clutched my leg.

 Something grabbed at my leg—the hand, I screamed and rantically wiggled out of my sleeping bag, bumping MJ as I tried to get away from the hand I thought I felt grab at my leg.

<![CDATA[My Review Of Who I Am? By K. C. Sprayberry]]>Thu, 29 Aug 2013 20:35:25 GMThttp://kaylalone.weebly.com/blog/my-review-of-who-i-am-by-k-c-sprayberry
Brooke English never belongs. She changes schools twice a year,
as often as her looks and name change. Her thoughts about belonging to her
"family" get even more viral when they stop in Landry, Georgia. Then things
start to go wrong. Then Brooke starts to have dreams.


Will she find the answers she wants? Or will her worst fears become reality?



Review


Brook has more trouble in figuring out who she is than most teens. She moves around a lot, and with each move she takes on a new identity. This story is full of mystery and suspense.




Except


There is no keepsakes, no mementoes of places I’ve been no pictures of me growing up.


Nothing where someone might be able to figure out who I am or where I’ve been. It’s like I have never exited except in the present.

<![CDATA[June Is A Busy Month]]>Thu, 27 Jun 2013 20:32:16 GMThttp://kaylalone.weebly.com/blog/june-is-a-busy-monthJune has been a busy month so I haven't had much time to blog on my website. I have been busy with reading books for review. If you are interested in seeing those reviews, I have posted them on my blog site @  www.kaylalone.blogspot.com.

I can't believe June is almost over. It seems the older you get the faster time slips away. I have a few writing projects in the works. One YA story I have sent to MuseItUp. I have also sent two picture book stories to Brighter books. So hopefully soon I'll be busy promoting those books. By the end of the year I hope to have another YA novel done. Also I am thinking about publishing my own stories. I want to try a short story first to see how it goes.

I am going to try and blog more (not just book reviews) so we will see how that goes. I don't want to get to busy reading and writing that my whole summer slips by. So I need to take time to enjoy these hot summer days. Pool side with a good book sounds good. Or even pool side with paper and pen, maybe the computer.

Well enjoy the summer. Check out my blog www.kaylalone.blogspot.com to see what books I have reviewed.

Keep writing and reading.

<![CDATA[My Review Of Hide'n Go Seek Psychic Vision Series By Dale Mayer]]>Thu, 30 May 2013 19:50:46 GMThttp://kaylalone.weebly.com/blog/my-review-of-hiden-go-seekpsychic-vision-seriesby-dale-mayer
A twisted game of Hide'n Go Seek forces an unlikely alliance between a no-nonsense FBI agent and a search-and-rescue worker.

Celebrated search-and-rescue worker Kali Jordon has hidden her
psychic abilities by crediting her canine partner Shiloh with the recoveries.
But Kali knows the grim truth--The Sight that she inherited from her grandmother
allows her to trace violent energy unerringly to victims of murder. No one knows
her secret until a twisted killer challenges her to a deadly game of Hide'n Go
Seek that threatens those closest to her. 
 
Now she must rely on FBI Special Agent Grant Summers, a man who
has sworn to protect her, even as he suspects there's more to Kali and Shiloh
than meets the eye. As the killer draws a tighter and tighter circle around
Kali, she and Grant find there's no place to
hide.

Are her visions the key to finding the latest victim alive or
will this twisted game of Hide'n Go Seek cost
her...everything?

Just like the first book in this psychic vision series, I give Hide'n Go Seek a five star review. I
oved it. This book is full of suspense, mystery, and romance. I can't wait to read the third book in this psychic vision series.

<![CDATA[My Review Of Tuesday's Child By Dale Mayer]]>Wed, 24 Apr 2013 19:52:33 GMThttp://kaylalone.weebly.com/blog/my-review-of-tuesdays-child-by-dale-mayer
Shunned and ridiculed all her life for something she can’t control, Samantha
Blair hides her psychic abilities and lives on the fringes of society. Against
her will, however, she’s tapped into a killer—or rather, his victims. Each
woman’s murder, blow-by-blow, ravages her mind until their death releases her
back to her body. Sam knows she must go to the authorities, but will the rugged,
no-nonsense detective in charge of tracking down the killer believe
her?

Detective Brandt Sutherland only trusts hard evidence, yet Sam’s
visions offer clues he needs to catch a killer. The more he learns about her
incredible abilities, however, the clearer it becomes that Sam’s visions have
put her in the killer’s line of fire. Now Brandt must save her from something he
cannot see or understand…and risk losing his heart in the process.

As danger and desire collide, passion raises the stakes in a game Sam and Brandt
don’t dare lose
Now for my review of this great book. I give this book a five star review. I loved it. I
can't imagine waking up, feeling as if I died. That is the way Samantha woke up.
Dale has created believeable characters that I care about. I feel like Samantha
and Brandt are my friends and it was fun watching them fall in love. Good book
filled with suspense. Must read more. Thanks, Dale, for a great read.

In this light hearted book, Ariane becomes Gigi guardian to help her make the right decision. This book makes me wonder if I have a guardian angel with me. Thanks Michele for a good
