Mia Angelis is lost. As the daughter of a successful heart transplant surgeon father and pediatric trauma physician mother, she has been compelled since birth to become a physician. A course, unlike her two successful physician siblings, she never desired to pursue and which is slowly strangling the fading embers of her existence. Freezing at the scene of a fatal multi-victim accident during her first year of residency nearly ends her medical career.
While escaping the chains of unending familial disappointment and professional ruins to take a job at a psychiatric teaching hospital with an old mentor in Maine, a near fatal car accident casts Mia into the world of the dead.

Can she overcome the personal, professional and demonic adversities threatening to forever isolate her and encase the soul of the one who finally led her home or will his twin brother’s deception end her life, thrusting her soul into the awaiting arms of darkness; ensuring that the encasements holding the souls of her love and his family are forever sealed; keeping them apart for all eternity.
Targeted Age Group:
Writing in this paranormal, mystery genre allowed me to take the reader through real world self-doubt and fears which sometimes cripple our moving forward freely or lock us into the same struggles, same conversations voicing our fears and going around in circles until we find the courage to get off while enjoying a budding romance and mystery of unlocking hidden clues to free a family from its prison.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Aspiring writers should never lose sight of the freedom that writing gives. The writer can go anywhere, do anything and accomplish their hidden desires. This being said, they should never forget that if they like their writing and their writing gives them peace or joy, they should never stop writing no matter what other people think of it. Writing is a very personal experience, just like opinions are not fact, they are someone subjective beliefs, also a very personal thing and not everyone likes the same thing, nor can everyone be pleased by the same writing.
I live in the Boston area, volunteer time at my children’s school while also working at a law firm. This is a brand new experience for me and has been quite educational. I have never been very good with the internet and dealing with formatting and such was quite an experience.
Writing was born out of the necessity for some peace and relief during a draining and guilt ridden time in my life. My three wonderful children and husband underwent the difficult ordeal of uprooting our lives to care for my parents who were both dying of cancer.
Drastically altering our lives to ensure that the wonderful people who cared for me during childhood and were giving and loving grandparents to their only grandchildren had their family living with them and caring for their daily needs during the three years of their waning lives when cancer ensured they could no longer care for themselves was rewarding and heart wrenching. The guilt of drastically changing the lives of my children and impairing their freedom led to many a sleepless night and the birth of this novel.
Despite our trials, as we looked around, we realized for everything we felt, it is nothing compared to parents who are dealing with young children who fight the deadly disease and the siblings who struggle with guilt as they enjoy pleasures that their sibling is sometimes unable to participate in because of their long hospital stays.
The posting of this book for free came about in hopes of starting something good. We have posted the book for free and at the end set forth a note to the reader asking that if they enjoyed the book, they consider donating what they would have paid for the book to a local hospital helping children with cancer, either in their neighborhood or in the Boston area.
