The Ghost of Emily Tapper

Two families, inexorably linked through time and misfortune, come together to face an uncertain, and possibly fatal, future.

Maggie Durrant is heir to a rambling estate in the middle of nowhere. Along with the ramshackle, gothic style castle, she is plagued with a curse that will end her days sooner, rather than later. Providing her brother doesn’t get to her first.

In the city, a world away from the estates of Magwood Hall and the Durrants, Emma Blewitt discovers a heritage that she did not know she had. Orphaned at a young age, she finds herself the beneficiary of a house, money, and the legacy of an aunt who leaves her everything and tells her nothing.

Through ghosts and spectres, murder and mayhem, even the curse of the ghost of Emily Tapper cannot diminish the attraction between Emma and Maggie. Their bond has the strength of ages behind them, but Emma must discover her own legacy before she and Maggie can seek a solution to The Ghost of Emily Tapper.

Knight’s Sacrifice

For most people, running a funeral home is a dull and conservative line of work, but when Catherine Samuels inherits the family business she discovers that it is anything but straightforward. For a start, the dead do not always stay dead, they sit up, and they bite. In this strange world, Catherine needs help, and that comes in the form of Cassandra (Cassie) Evans, a heavily armed problem solver, knowledgeable in all things arcane and undead.

Cassie, however, hates her posting to Catherine Samuels. Her charge knows nothing of family, her heritage, nor her duty as the sole remaining caretaker of The Gate, a sentient construct that guards the way to hell and stops the inhabitants of Hell finding their way to the land of the living. Anyone who does not understand the importance of this duty is a liability. Catherine is a liability. Except that Cassie finds an unsettling attraction developing between them that she neither expects nor wants. Duty first, there is no room for emotional entanglements, and certainly not with a woman who rejects all that Cassie thinks is important.

When Catherine finds herself on the brink of losing everything, Cassie, her family, and even life itself, then she must awaken. She must become The Samuel, The Gate Keeper and guard the way between the living and the dead. To make it safe she must travel to hell, with the warrior that she has chosen, and there, if they survive, she must heal the problems of the Gate before all hell breaks loose.

Pretend I’m Your Friend: Stories

“There are, I suppose, stories full of brilliance, hilarity, and longing—the stories in MB Caschetta’s terrific Pretend I’m Your Friend are full of all these things—but I can’t remember when I’ve read a collection so full of life. Actual life: the bad jokes, the astounding velocity, the sweetness and darkness. You will love the characters here the way you love your own family: complicatedly, with tenderness, understanding, and consternation. The only difference may be how willing—and eager—you are to introduce them to friends. Good heavens, this book is good.”
—Elizabeth McCracken, author of Thunderstruck

Husk

Outlandish and emotional, this humorous novel centers on Sheldon Funk, a struggling actor who dies in a bus restroom only to awaken during his autopsy and attack the coroner. Fleeing into the wintry streets of Toronto, Sheldon realizes he’s now a zombie—as if he didn’t have enough on his plate already. His last audition, reading for the reality television series House Bingo, had gone disastrously wrong. His mother is in the late stages of dementia, his savings are depleted, his agent couldn’t care less, and his boyfriend is little more than a set of nice abs. All Sheldon has to his name is a house he can barely hold onto and a cat that is more pillow than mammal. Now he also has to contend with decomposition, the scent of the open grave, and an unending appetite for human flesh—and on top of it all, there’s another audition in the morning. In order to survive his death without literally falling apart, Sheldon must find a way to combine his old life with his new addiction, which would be a lot easier if he could stop eating vagrants. A hysterical take on fame, love, religion, politics, and appetite, this is the story of the “everyzombie” people long to be.

Northern Heights

A story of bullying, love, healing and revenge: North East England, August 2000,
Barbara Singleton is twelve years old and in love with another girl. She is also obese and the subject of a brutal bullying campaign. Seeing no other options, this gentle child takes drastic action to end her torment.

Over a decade later, Nicola Dixon is struggling with life. The victim of choice in her manager’s relentless, sometimes ingenious bullying tactics, this once happy young woman is aware she is drinking more, losing weight and her confidence is in tatters. Despite agonising over every recollection since they first met, she cannot understand what she has done to deserve such cruel treatment. Instead those memories, blurred beyond recognition through over-reflection, have blended into malignant feelings of unearned shame and self-doubt.

When the dynamic and impressive Angela Bromwelowe is seconded from another local government, Nicola’s life has an opportunity for change. It is a path that will force her to face her fears, guilt from mistakes in her past and serious injury. Has Nicola got the strength to grab the chance of happiness waiting at the end. Can she use it to help others, even those who have hurt her?

not poems, just words: on loving, living and longing

NOT POEMS, JUST WORDS is an homage to the romantic odes of Pablo Neruda, Walt Whitman, John Keats, e. e. cummings, Robert Frost and W. H. Auden.

Who could forget Keats’ soliloquy to the vividness of life in ‘A Thing of Beauty (Endymion)’ and how he espoused the virtue of looking at the real and simple quality of daffodils? Or Whitman’s masterpiece on the internal universe of the soul in ‘Leaves of Grass’? Or how Auden had so thoughtfully placed us sitting low on a church pew, dabbing at our eyes, as the voice of a pained heart calls for someone to ‘stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone’ in ‘Funeral Blues’? Do we remember? Or do we choose to forget?

This collection of words, not necessarily within the boundaries of traditional poems, is just that: a bundle of words that perform the song and dance of modern poetry. It’s a bag full of words that I use and feel and speak of and touch others with every day.
Because I choose to remember. — Ramon Loyola, 2014
