by Curtis Maynard

When the Riggs family in Mobile, Alabama, faced the mysterious death of their adoptive daughter Shantel Thompson, they never imagined her ghost would linger for decades…

In Curtis Maynard's heart-stopping paranormal thriller, 'The Ghost of Shantel Thompson,' a new family, fifty years later, grapples with a haunting legacy where the line between life and death is hauntingly thin.

Just as they begin to settle into their new life, their own young daughter is gripped by chilling visions of Shantel. It's not just fleeting shadows—she's entangled in a vengeful spirit's relentless quest for justice, a quest that spans generations.

As whispers from the grave reveal long-hidden secrets, this new family faces a terrifying truth: some ghosts refuse to be silenced. Now, they must confront the mystery of Shantel's death before her ghostly agenda consumes them all.

Dare to uncover the truth? 'The Ghost of Shantel Thompson' awaits to send shivers down your spine!


Now for an EXCERPT:

Reacting swiftly, Damian lunged out of bed and rushed to Sarah's side, using his body as a shield between Alicia and her mother. "Alicia? Alicia?" he repeated, his voice desperate, hoping to break the hold of whatever trance had possessed her.

Alicia blinked, her eyes refocusing as she met her father's gaze. "Dad?" Her voice was calm, confusion evident in her tone. She glanced down at the knife in her hand. "What happened?"

"That's what we want to know," Damian replied, his voice filled with concern. "Your mother woke up and saw you standing over her with a knife."

Alicia's gaze shifted to Sarah, who sat trembling on the bed. "I don't remember coming in here. I don't know where I got the knife from." She looked back at her father. "I must've been sleepwalking again."

"What's the last thing you remember?" Damian asked, a trace of suspicion in his voice.

Alicia's mind raced, searching for a plausible explanation. She couldn't afford to be caught in the act of sneaking into their room. "I... I remember a nightmare. Yes, that's what it was. I was sleeping, and I had a nightmare. I didn't know what was going on. And the next thing I know, you're shaking me awake."

Relieved by Alicia's explanation, Damian gently took the knife from her hand. "Let me just take this from you," he said, his tone soothing. "And let's get you back into bed."


Now for An Interview with the Author:

What are your favorite TV shows?

            Big Brother and Survivor

 What is your favorite meal?

            I am very fond of Mexican cuisine.

 If you were to write a series of novels, what would it be about?

            I think it would entail a paranormal mystery where each episode (book) would draw the audience closer to the truth.

 Is there a writer you idolize?  If so who?

            I idolize writers who release books. If an author finishes a book, they have told a story.  Congrats to them!

 How did you come up for the title of this book?

            By visualizing it as a movie.
