Each tale of The Hauntings of Kingston is a standalone novel that takes place in the enigmatic city of Kingston, Ontario.
Her chance at a new life is going to kill her.

When Gillian and her family move into the old house on Harvest Street, it's too good to be true. The rent's dirt cheap, and it's right next door to the University she’s going to be attending. With her recently widowed mother on board, there’s a ready and willing babysitter for her five year old daughter Sarah.
Who could ask for anything more?

When Gillian’s mother Maureen discovers a family connection to the house they see it as Providence. They’re meant to live here!

But then… odd things start to happen.
Sarah loves the swing in the backyard and her new friends—twin girls only she can see. The odd becomes foreboding when Nana Maureen can’t sleep in her room. She’s constantly woken up by creaking floors, nightmares of being strangled, and the smell of rotting flesh.

The family has always been loving and close, but now the atmosphere between them is tense. Small disagreements explode into rage.

What on earth is happening to them?

They don't know about the evil that descended upon the house. How, almost a century ago, dashed dreams rose again into a rage— a murderous rage. A rage that still breathes in the very walls of this home.

This is how it began and how it will end. At Crawley House.
It’s a dream job until it becomes a nightmare.

A few months ago, Keira was an aimless 23 year old, but her Nana changed all that. She’s inherited her grandmother’s psychic gifts as well as a massive fortune. But there’s a catch. She must carry on the work of shepherding lost souls to the next plane of existence. The order of the universe depends on her transitioning spirits through the veil.

It can be dangerous and scary as hell but so far, so good. She travels the world in style having spooky escapades with her best friend Gwen at her side. Sure, there are some close calls, but nothing these two women can’t handle.

That is, until the ugly part of Keira’s family rears its head.

Her grandfather has evil plans of his own, and come hell or high water, she’s going to help him.
Her choice—join forces with him or forfeit the lives of everyone she cares for. The man is unhinged, and will die to achieve his ends.
Or kill.

The stakes of her Heritage have become very dangerous, very quickly.
Enough is enough...

Keira and her best friend Gwen tackle even more foreboding ghosts in their mission to maintain the integrity of The Veil. Some souls are confused, some are angry, and some are trapped in this realm. It’s a daunting responsibility, and has become her life’s work. If the spirits of the dead do not move on, the very fabric of the universe is threatened.

But now a greater threat has returned. A demented enemy wants to not only stop Keira’s work, he wants to destroy The Veil. When it crumbles, he will ascend to unfathomable power. Unable to accomplish this alone, he’ll stop at nothing to conscript her in his quest.

Her new life, and the lives of those she loves are at stake. She has to face her enemy and bring an end to his insane plan. She dares not risk her loved ones again. Her own powers have flourished; she can do this. She has no choice but go it alone.
In her decision, she finds herself forsaken.
Keira Swanson is flunking out of school...again. She’s flitted like a butterfly from one college program to another. The only thing she’s ever finished has been the last call at dance clubs.

Everything changes in a New York minute when her parents decide it’s time for tough love and cut her off. No more credit cards, no more cash allowance and OMG they cancelled her apartment’s lease. On top of all that, she’s banished to her grandmother’s. A grandmother she never knew existed.

Her grandmother is batty as hell—Pamela York lives in an antiquated manor, dresses for dinner like she’s the Queen of England and makes crazy talk about ghosts.

Ghosts? As. If.
Keira’s about to learn a few things. Haunted houses do exist and she’s living in one. Pamela isn’t psychotic; she’s a powerful psychic whose lifework has been assisting reluctant spirits pass through The Veil to a higher plane.

When Keira discovers she has a lot more in common with the old woman than she ever imagined, her real education begins.
But it’s not just reluctant spirits Pamela has had to contend with. There also exist malevolent forces; paranormal entities that crave the chaos of a Veil torn asunder. Keira finds out not only are ghosts real— so are demons.
Uh oh.

A supernatural thriller with danger and magic.
“It’s a stupid game, and it’s all fake, Maya!”

For the last two years, Maya’s carried that burden, because both Mom and Dad were killed that terrible, terrible night.
