A Gift of Ghosts

cover of A Gift of Ghosts
Akira has secrets. But so does the town of Tassamara.

Akira Malone believes in the scientific method, evolution, and Einstein’s theory of relativity. And ghosts.

All the logic and reason in the world can’t protect her from the truth—she can see and communicate with spirits. But Akira is sure that her ability is just a genetic quirk and the ghosts she encounters simply leftover electromagnetic energy. Dangerous electromagnetic energy.

Zane Latimer believes in telepathy, precognition, auras, and that playing foosball with your employees is an excellent management technique. He also thinks that maybe, just maybe, Akira Malone can help his family get in touch with their lost loved ones.

But will Akira ever be able to face her fears and accept her gift? Or will Zane’s relatives be trapped between life and death forever?

  1. This was a great story. Very original. I have gotten tired of the same old paranormal stories of vampires & werewolves. This book is a breath of fresh attitude with it’s quirky characters and engaging ghosts. I really enjoyed it. I just wish I could get the rest of the series for .99 each because I devoured the first one in one day!

      Thank you so much! I sent you a friend request on FB, because if I send you a PM there without knowing you, it’ll just disappear into your Other folder. But if you send me your email address, I will send you presents. 🙂

    I just finished this book and have to say how pleased and surprised I was! I read between 3-5 books a week (and work fulltime and have a husband!) and this is my favorite genre so to read a book with such realistic and enjoyable chracters was wonderful. Are you a psychic or maybe someone in your family? Have you met a finder before? (If so can I have their name? I lost one of my favorite sandals!) Its hard to believe you can write about a subject so thoroughly and it just comes from your imagination.

    Thank you so much for writing this and I look forward to reading more of your books!

      I wish I had met a finder! That would be so cool. But alas, no, I’m not psychic, nor do I know anyone who is. Thanks for reading!

    This was a great story. I referred it to several of my “psychic” friends so that they could grasp paranormal gifts from different, yet entertaining perspectives.

    • sarahwynde said:

      Awesome, thank you! I don’t know that there’s anything realistic about my psychics, except maybe the idea that science will be able to explain such gifts eventually. Physics, especially, is a subject rich in the unknown, where scientists do understand how much there is still to learn about our universe (which is why it fascinates me, even though I barely understand a lot of it!) But I hope they enjoy the read. Thanks for sharing and commenting!

    I was looking for something a step above the usual ghost story and was pleasantly surprised at the delight time I had reading this. The characters, story line, and originality really caught my interest and I will definately be reading the others in the series. Thank you so much for giving me a wonderful way to pas the time on a rainy Sunday afternoon.

      And thank you so much for giving me a pleasant thrill on Monday evening! It always makes me so happy to know that someone has enjoyed one of my stories. I hope you like the rest of them, too!

  8. Even though I barely starting chapter two of “A Gift of Ghosts” I can barely put my tablet down!! I plan on finishing (or trying to) this book by the end of the weekend. The details have brought me into the town of Tassamara, and I am only starting the 2nd chapter. Can you tell that I am thoroughly enjoying this book?

    • sarahwynde said:

      I’m so glad you like it! I hope you get time to finish this weekend. I hate when I’m in the middle of a story and real-life keeps stealing my time. I had the good fortune (sorta) of losing internet this week for a solid 8 hours–it made for some great reading time!

    I’m only 12 yrs old and I finished your book in a week for my book report and I love it but I have to ask in your point of view what is the theme because at school my teacher said that I may have a them but the author may have a different way of saying or disagrees with the reader

    • Hi, Celeste, I’m sorry for my slow response, and I wish I had your email address so I could make sure you got my response! I have to say that I disagree with your teacher — I think what’s important in a book is what the reader brings to it. If you think what matters in it is a theme of friendship or recovery from grief or moving on or even physics, then that’s what your experience of the book is, and your experience is just as valid and just as important as anything I have to say about the story. But that said (and because I suspect it’ll be easier for you to have a more definite answer 🙂 ), I think for me the theme is finding community. I think all the books I write are really about finding a place and people where you belong.
