Jack: I’ve never had a bad pizza. Even when it’s bad, it’s still pretty good.
Jen: Pizza’s good, but I love homemade apple pie, warm with ice cream. My Gramma used to make it.
Jack: My gramma used to give me…Lifesavers. The minty ones. The gross kind that tastes like mouthwash.
Jen: (shaking head)
Jack: Eben and I used to watch Happy Gilmour over and over when we were in high school. It’s wicked stupid, but it still makes me laugh.
Jen: I don’t watch a ton of TV, but I got into Game of Thrones from watching with Ethan and PJ.
Jen: Black’s not really a color.
Jack: (grinning) Then I guess I don’t have a favorite color.
Jen: For me it’s blue. Or purple.
Ideal Vacation spot:
Jack: I don’t know. I’d love to just cruise around various parts of Europe.
Jen: I’ve got family in both Scotland and Ireland. That would be my first visit.
Jack: (claps hands together) Let’s do it!
Jen: Sure, you tell my dad to give me some time off. He might actually listen to you.
Jen & Jack together: Thanks for having us, Valerie!
Jack Norris just lost his best friend—who also happened to be his band’s drummer—to a drunk driving accident. As he navigates the uncertainty of the band’s future, as well as his own personal demons, his life spirals out of control. To make matters worse, his dead friend is back, and it’s wreaking havoc on Jack’s sanity. When a new acquaintance not only hooks him up with a drummer, but promises to help get rid of his ghostly stalker, Jack’s life does a one eighty
Drew MacLellan, the new drummer, is helping to bring the band back from the dead. He’s also got an insanely hot older sister who is definitely not Jack’s biggest fan. Jen MacLellan is nothing like the women Jack’s dated in the past, but the more he gets to know her, the deeper he falls. The only problem is, she’s got a boyfriend. Caught between his growing attraction and the desire to do the right thing, Jack does everything he can to keep things as just friends. The longer it goes on, the more he realizes it isn’t possible. Can Jack win the heart of the woman he’s fallen for? And can he figure out how to help his dead friend rest in peace…permanently?

LIVING DEAD GIRL (BOOK #1, LIVING DEAD WORLD SERIES)
Jen MacLellan has hit a dead end… Jen knows tattooed, blue-haired Jack Norris is trouble the minute he opens his front door. And being a mortician in the avante garde East Side of Providence, Jen has seen a lot. Jack has recruited Jen’s teenage brother Drew to play drums for his less-than-respectable punk band, and Jen has no choice but to follow their gigs to keep her little brother out of trouble. But when Drew goes missing, she finds herself in the awkward position of asking for Jack’s help. Shocked that he agrees, Jen decides she may have misjudged him. Worse, she might even like him. But when Jen is brutally attacked, she awakens in the hospital where a Sid Vicious look-alike greets her with the news: she’s dead, and he’s the reaper assigned to take her away. Yeah, not so much. Refusing to leave, Jen’s spirit watches helplessly as her loved ones suffer, powerless to ease her family’s grief or prevent the police from accusing Jack of her murder. Desperate to help them, Jen convinces the reaper to bring her back. But reanimating corpses isn’t as easy as it looks, and neither is finding a killer before it’s too late…
REAPER MADNESS (BOOK #2, LIVING DEAD WORLD SERIES)
This isn’t the afterlife she expected… Jen MacLellan can’t get the hang of being a reaper. She’s been separated from Jack, the man she loves, and is stuck with an annoying telepathic link to her ill-tempered mentor, Sam. Now Death is breathing down her neck, promising to remove that annoying link if she gives him what he wants. But when reapers begin to disappear back on earth, leaving behind walking, talking dead people, Jen and Sam are thrust into a dangerous mission to recapture the souls, and a passionate physical relationship that complicates everything. Jack Norris has no memory prior to waking up on the half-demon Nulcifer’s couch six months earlier. As he begins to investigate his past, he discovers a string of past lives tied together by a beautiful, mysterious brunette. Who is she? And why does finding her seem like a life or death proposition? When Sam falls victim to fate during a routine visit to earth, Jen’s devastated. Desperate to get him back, she runs smack into the man she never thought she’d see again—Jack. She tries to keep her distance, but there’s no time to be awkward if they want to save Sam. When sinister plots are revealed, and betrayals threaten everything, she’s forced to make some tough choices—and learns that life is just as difficult when you’re dead.
