Q & A with the Author

Q - How would you describe The School of Exorcists series?

A - The School of Exorcists is a mix of teen and YA romance and adventure, sc-fi and fantasy, with lots of paranormal bumps along the way. I've always enjoyed reading books aimed at teens and young adults, especially coming of age series best sellers, they speak to my own inner teen, so you'll find lots of this throughout the series.

Q - Why did you want to write paranormal romance and adventure novels?

A - I love thinking about love and reimagining my own teenage years, making them much more exciting! This series has been ten years in the writing and Ruby Carmichael and her paranormal adventures and romance can now be released for others to immerse themselves into. I wanted to write young teen and young adult books that engaged and excited readers of all ages and I hope The School of Exorcists has achieved that.

Q - What does it mean to you when readers buy your books?

A - I get a huge smile on my face, it great to know people enjoy my writing. Paranormal romance and adventure books can get a bad rap, too much Twilight and not enough action, but I will always enjoy this type of writing, and if I never sell another book and the best seller list isn't for me, I will still write paranormal books because I love them. The School of Exorcists has so many stories to tell, lots of undead, plenty of ghosts and magic by the bucket load. The School is going to keep me busy for years, and I hope readers will enjoy this journey with me.

The Hill - Ben's Story (Book One): A Paranormal Murder Mystery Thriller

'The Hill reveals the world for what it is; a place where the impossible is real, and the dead speak with the living'

What if you were murdered? And what if by supernatural intervention you are given the chance to help the police find your killer? This is what happened to rookie police officer Ben Walker after he and his new girlfriend, Liz Mason became victims of a callous and brutal attack by Daniel Boyd, a grudge bearing drop out, and his gang.

Ben's body lay alongside Liz, who was unconscious and barely alive at the bottom of Mill Tut, a Bronze aged burial mound in the beautiful Badock's Wood in Bristol.

DCI Markland Garraway, who at the last moment is brought in to lead the investigation into Ben's murder has a reputation of being a maverick detective who thinks outside the box.

The mystical powers of the ancient burial mound begin to influence Garraway's attitude towards the case and soon he is alienated by his colleagues. Mill Tut, or The Hill as Garraway refers to it, opens up a Pandora's Box of supernatural happenings which infiltrate his waking and sleeping life, creating a host of mental demons which the Scottish detective must learn to deal with.

Daniel Boyd has fled Bristol to evade capture for the crime he has committed. To those who know him, he's vanished off the face of the earth. But can he escape the mystical powers of The Hill?

The power of The Hill does not only affect Garraway. It reaches out to many, including Christopher Jameson, who was born at the precise moment Ben's life ended.

The Hill reveals to Garraway and the others who are affected by its influence, the world for what it is; a place where the impossible is real, and the dead speak with the living.

For a Ghost-Free Time, Call

For a Ghost-Free Time, Call is an episodic supernatural adventure set in the emerald city of Eugene, Oregon which follows a young man, who-since he was a boy-has had the irritating ability to see ghosts all around him. In spite of this so-called "gift," he found a way to cope and a few less than legitimate ways to make a little money on the side. But a con that started out as a way to make a quick buck will soon become a terrifying reality check about the world he thought he understood...

"Eugene is teeming with ghosts and for some stupid, God damn reason, I'm the only one who can see them."

At the young age of nine, Jared developed the unnatural ability to see the lingering spirits of the dead, and beyond its initial novelty, all it's ever done is piss him off. After having to grow up rather quickly on his own, Jared took something that would have easily driven most people insane and found a way to use his unwelcomed gift to his advantage. He studied and took notes from the most prevalent movies and television shows, and armed with every mainstream supernatural trope and cliche he could find, started his very own--more or less legitimate--ghost removal service. With years of hit-or-miss cons and a number of temporary solutions to combat the most crippling aspects of his "gift," Jared finally found a way to live a "normal" life and a way to fit in with society. However, one day, while working a routine job for a rich mark, Jared will be confronted with his own lies and a glimpse of the truth behind the world around him and his abilities.

For a Ghost-Free Time, Call is a supernatural thriller written by up and coming Pacific Northwest author Sean Kelly (author of "The Drive Home: A Tale of Bromance and Horror" and co-founder of Emerald Inkwell, A Pacific Northwest Publishing Community) and is the first story in an episodic series brought to you by Emerald Inkwell. Every city has their supernatural annoyances, but that doesn't mean you have to put up with them. Instead, for a ghost-free time, just call.

What Readers are saying

Lowe writes an amazing powerful, suspenseful and captivating story that draws the reader in from page one. There is so much tied up in this unique tale from paranormal, demons, supernatural and so much more.CC

A spine tingling read, author Wesley Robert Lowe successfully merges the supernatural, history, and culture of China together into an intelligible paranormal thriller series. The writing is articulate, the characters are remarkable, and the story takes off with horrific intensity and continually builds a web of paranormal imbued mystery that kept me riveted to the book. LM

Lowe's book is a great addition to the paranormal thriller/urban fantasy genre, and readers who are tired of the same old/same old Western supernatural tropes will be delighted by the way the Chinese lore has been woven into the tale, along with a lot of twists and turns. KT
