“The whole series began around my practice as a psychic intuitive,” Laurie says in a taped interview. “I never had any serial killers come after me, I was never kidnapped by the mob…but I have had some very interesting sessions with clients and I’ve done some police work.”
You can tell by the titles that Laurie’s books have an edge to them — previous novels include What’s a Ghoul to Do?, Ghouls Gone Wild and Demons Are a Ghoul’s Best Friend. In Ghoul Interrupted, protagonist M.J. Holliday, who leads a reality television show called Ghoul Getters, gets called to New Mexico, where an ancient demon is waging war.
Laurie, who lives in Austin, is a busy, busy writer, churning out a new book for each of her three series every year. Her next release is Oracles of Delphi Keeper: Quest for the Secret Keeper, due in February. 6 p.m. Murder by the Book, 2342 Bissonnet. For information, call 713-524-8597 or visit www.murderbooks.com.
