Blurb: A gator hunting bayou family all hear the cry of a banshee while on their lucky boat–who will be the next to die?
Deanna Oscar and friends are back to solve the spooky and paranormal problems in the Big Easy. A banshee returns every five years and kills at least one (or as many as five) members of a particular family. The family asks Deanna to help them end the curse or stop the wrath of this vengeful spirit.
Newly married and juggling a lot of upheaval in her social circles, De is happy to help but the banshee isn’t cooperating or communicating. Is it a vengeful dead woman or a demon playing tricks?
Tortured souls, obsessive priests, Death, and gator hunters plus a very loud banshee make up just another case in the Big Easy–if De can only avoid any dead bodies this time…
I have been awful at updating this so I’ll cover Books 7 & 8
Book 8 Release 8/10
Deanna Oscar Paranormal Mysteries Book 8
Ghosts never forget, rarely forgive, and frequently refuse to move on.
While Deanna is helping her brother settle in, her friends relationships give her reasons to worry and celebrate—depending on the couple.
Work, however, never stops.
The case that falls in her lap at the Hundred Willows Plantation is truly disturbing. The ghosts have become restless—attacking tourists and tour guides. While the family denies there is anything haunting the antebellum mansion, they can’t hide the truth from Deanna.
The plantations dark history repeats itself. Specific scenes playing out over and over. That isn’t the worst of it.
It’s when the supernatural residents try to interact with humans that injury and death become a recurring theme for the living.
The only way to change the pattern is for Deanna to put herself in the path of anger, attack, and Death (wearing high heels) itself.
Deanna Oscar Paranormal Mysteries Book 7
Everyone deserves a vacation!
Unfortunately, bad guys and ghouls never rest…
With a string of paranormally gifted cheaters out to foil a charity ball put on by her brother’s casino, Deanna Oscar isn’t getting a break.
The group of criminals could bring down the entire casino chain if De doesn’t catch the ringleader first.
Deanna is only slightly less worried about her boyfriend meeting her brother.
Ivy and Brody are out to party and things get a little out of hand—or maybe it’s whatever is haunting their room?
Don’t miss it! Book 6 is coming soon…

So a lot of people (especially at book signings) assumed that Deanna Oscar books were YA…
IF the cover isn’t communicating the right genre, it’s NOT working.
So I had the covers redone to more fit the brand/genre. Some people love it, some liked the first ones…can’t please everyone. But I hope you’ll check them out 🙂 Same books–updated covers!
Halloween is coming…
Ready for Cannibals? Cemeteries? Sugar Skulls???
Deanna has seen a lot of wild paranormal and supernatural things in New Orleans. But grave robbers? Dead bodies exposed and pieces removed… Who would do that?
Could it be cannibals? Are these hate crimes? Mentally ill criminals? Or is it an elaborate hoax staged by Walking Dead fans?
The Day of the Dead and Halloween are a big deal in the Big Easy. Ghost and cemetery tours mean major business from tons of tourists. This desecration of old graves has to stop.
When the monsters turn out to be real and the dead are being disrespected, the supernatural balance is thrown into chaos. It’s up to Deanna and friends to lock down the paranormal crazy before the veil between the living and the dead is destroyed.

Someone’s cursed Deanna Oscar. Bad things keep happening: a spider bite, a stripper, a doc who looks like Death…and more.
An awesome Super Bowl party is ruined when someone takes a shot at her in her own club. Her powers go on the fritz. A creepy demon—or maybe a zombie?—seems to be stalking her. Three teen girls go missing and De can’t find them.
She needs to find the source of the curse and ditch the zombie—or maybe a demon? But first—those three girls…
Join Deanna Oscar for her latest high-stakes New Orleans adventure!
Lack of blogging is a symptom of my life. The last two years have been rough. In Jan of 2015 my dad went into the hospital…he passed away in 2017 so my releases have been sparse. My writing time hijacked often.
One of the weird things about the last two years is, I’m a control freak. Type A, whatever you want to call it. So when I write, I write a lot. I like having a plan etc… BUT hospital, doctors, and even death…they don’t care about anyone’s schedule. They do whatever they want whenever they want…You learn to let go and be ready at a random call to go to the hospital or to the store because Dad needs something or your newly widowed mom needs something…
Drop everything…at a moment’s notice. That’s been my last two years. SO no wonder it’s hard for me to try and get back into a schedule. To get a writing plan and get to work. I’m still grieving and dealing with stuff in the family and the holidays won’t be easy…
But I want to get back to writing. I love my readers, my stories, and my own life needs to happen. So I’m working on that. It’s harder than it seems because I keep worrying that there will be another emergency. So I have to figure out this new phase in my life.
I did manage to write one new Deanna Oscar Book this year!!! I will have more next year too…hopefully 3 new Deanna Oscars!
Get ready for demons, angels, Death himself…and a puppy!
A Bar, A Brother, And A Ghost Hunt
Deanna Oscar Paranormal Mystery Book 3
Whether it was a time warp or just a time jump, Deanna Oscar spent years in Chicago with her brother while he fought cancer and ultimately lost. But even as a ghost, he’s not making things easier on his sister. He’s refusing to cross over.
De heads back to New Orleans to resume her work but her brother fails to show up in Heaven and Gran is in a tizzy. Also De’s friend, Ivy, committed our favorite medium to do a ghost hunt with one of those annoying TV shows. De wanted things to go back to normal—deal with supernatural problems and catch a murderer or two.
But the location for the ghost hunt is very much haunted and she can’t say no when a man sits in jail for a murder he denies he committed while working at a bar that oozes evil. Deanna juggles angels, demons, and Death himself plus a puppy! She’ll probably solve the mystery, hopefully save her brother, and maybe even find a date to her ex-boyfriend’s wedding in time.

Hugs to all my readers! I’m getting back to writing. I believe 2017 will be far better and more normal. So much was beyond my control but there is only so much I can do. Now I can get my life back.
