Franklin Township writer Deb Lerew, 45, recently released her book, “The Newbie: A Kyrie Carter Ghost Hunting Adventure.”
“This book had its origins as fan fiction for the Syfy show Ghost Hunters. I love reading and writing both ghost stories and romance, and I soon found myself completely wrapped up in expanding the story of Kyr, Spook, and the Berkeley mansion,” Lerew said via our local author web form.
The book is the first in the Kyrie Carter series. Book 2 is in the revision stages, and Book 3 is in the works as well, Lerew said.
The synopsis is as follows:
When Kyrie Carter wins a Halloween-themed radio contest, she gets the chance to do her first paranormal investigation with Drac and Gabe Petery, stars of the hit show Project Boo-Seekers. As the investigation begins, she thinks her biggest challenge will be dealing with unsupportive teammates, especially the handsome but enigmatic Spook Steele. However, she soon discovers that she has more to worry about than flesh and blood rivals. Her dream weekend turns into a nightmare when the ghost of Jeremiah Berkeley becomes aggressive and dangerous.
Will Kyr and the Boo-Seekers be able to unravel the mysteries of the Berkeley mansion?And will she be able to sort out her romantic feelings for the off-limits Gabe as well as her unwelcome attraction to Steele?
In her spare time, Lerew enjoys crocheting, reading and writing. She’s also a den leader for her sons’ Scout troop.
Lerew’s book was self-published through CreateSpace and can be purchased on Amazon.com.
