Today I'm highlighting A Spirit's Last Gift by Kathy-Lynn Cross. I read a version of this story in an anthology, Echoes of Winter, last year! I'm exciting to see where Kathy has taken this expanded story!
About the book: Juslynn’s one wish is for Carter to notice her, not as his best friend but something more. Carter and Juslynn are attending the Snow Flurry dance together, but she catches him kissing her rival. Overcome with emotions, her reaction to flee in four-inch heels causes a fatal accident. Now caught between life and death she must figure out how to move on with the help from a demon.
About Kathy-Lynn Cross: Born in Pomona, California, Kathy-Lynn Cross lived there for twelve years until her family moved to Las Vegas, Nevada. Kathy-Lynn wasn’t always a writer. In 2008, when her niece was hospitalized, Kathy-Lynn decided to do something special for her, so she wrote a short tale for her to read. After devouring it in a single day, her niece and the nurses in the pediatrics wing quickly asked her, “What’s next?” That was when a new chapter in her life opened up, and Kathy-Lynn realized that she wanted to become a story weaver.
Kathy-Lynn loves the color red and uses it obsessively in everything, including her bottle-blonde hair accented with red highlights. She has a knack for baking and cake decorating—that is when her fingers are not busy writing mayhem. When recharging, she can be found curled up with a cup of coffee and a good book or spending time with her hubby of twenty-two years, two kids, three cats, two silver dollar fish, and the family dog.
