Just in time for the Christmas season, a good old fashion ghost story is the theme of the second installment of the Forever Detective Series.
The year is 1947 and private investigator Rafael Jones has already learned the hard way that the supernatural is all too real. Having been turned into a vampire, he’s trying to continue his work as a detective, while attempting to adapt to and understand his condition.
Now he has a new case to deal with. A friend has asked him to prove a mansion he’s inherited is NOT haunted. Unfortunately, it is… and the ghost needs Rafael for help and justice.
Can our hero find answers and evidence a 20 year old cold case no one knew about? Can he find the Prohibition gangster who murdered the young flapper? These things are harder than you’d expect them to be with a view of the murder on replay. As Rafael finds out, the secrets of the supernatural are not known only to the good guys, and gangsters with access to magic are all the more dangerous.
COMING DECEMBER 1st
In Paperback and all e-book formats
The second installment of the Forever Detective Series
Life isn’t easy, but it’s easier than adjusting to being dead. Rafael Jones is still learning about his new diet, powers, and limitations when he’s asked to certify that a house isn’t haunted. But when it turns out to have the ghost of a murdered flapper, his new mission is to locate the missing gangster who killed her, the magic mirror that helped the killer disappear, protect his client, and stop a new string of murders. Magic and mystery collide in the summer of 1947, and our detective is digging up answers to questions going back as far as the end of WWI.

An excellent post-war detective story with a fantasy twist. I would highly
recommendthis book to anyone who either likes fantasy novels or detective

Relatable characters, evocative scenery, and engaging dialogue make this
book a lot of fun to read. I especially appreciated the way that the female
characters (both heroes and villains) were fully formed, intelligent, and
autonomous – delightfully atypical of the genre. I am eagerly anticipating
All this wonderful feedback is so exciting and I’m very grateful to all who are helping spread the word about this series.
And to top it all off, the 2nd book in the series is just weeks away from being released:

I’ve always loved reading about the sciences. For the most part, that’s influenced my participation in the Para-Earth series, where paranormal and science fiction (in the form of parallel Earth evolution) come together. However, I’m finding my interest in animal life is even useful in the Forever Detective series. Many folklore entities are closely connected to the natural realm. Even unnatural creatures like vampires are able to shape shift and control animals to do their bidding– so it helps to know about those animals.
For instance, there are many types of bats, and vampire bats are a tiny minority. Insectivores are far more common, and the flying fox type– the largest bats– are not only cute, but they live on things like pollen, nectar, and fruit. If a vampire turns into a flying fox, it tells you he doesn’t think like other vampires.
For Forever Haunted, I had to do some research on moths, which was rather fun and unusual. I’ve learned about jaguars, too, as I will be using that information later.
I need to know about horses for book 3, Forever in Deep. I also need horse racing information. Anyone want to recommend good sources?
Hello everyone. Today, I’m looking for feedback from all of you. Below are 3 audio versions of the same intro to “Forever’s Too Long”. The goal here is to find what style you the audience find most appealing, so Allan and I can proceed with turning the novel into a full-scale audiobook. My hope is to have it ready in time for the holidays so it can be released along with the print and e-book version of “Forever Haunted” the second installment of this series.
Each of us did a recording of the prologue separately, and then we did one together.
Please give a listen to each and let us know which style you like best. Mind you, listening to all three from start to finish would take about 10-11 minutes. But if you don’t have that kind of time, please listen to the 1st minute of each and give us your feedback.
We sincerely thank you in advance for your help with this because I sincerely wish to bring you only the best when it comes to my work.
So excited to share this latest review…
