Nightfeather: Ghosts

The place is Farnham, a town that wouldn’t exist but for the exit ramp off the Interstate. Her name is Persephone Désirée Arabia Nightfeather Sanderson, but you can call her Sanderson. In fact, you’d better — she’s allergic to people using her other names, with a few necessary exceptions. Sanderson is a woman of unusual talents, which she would admit to understanding poorly. Which is a pity, because she’s going to need them to deal with the ghosts she’s just about to run into.

Nightfeather: Ghosts is my 2013 Christmas ghost story. Enjoy!

(The short story, “Sanderson comes to Farnham,” is a sort of prologue that takes place a few years before Nightfeather: Ghost, and can be read with it or not as the reader chooses.)
