The Shadow People by Miranda Beall

 

Shadow People--Who are they? What do they want? Why are they here? Are they aliens, interdimensional beings, ghosts? You be the judge. Then tell the rest of us.

Then I Saw the Congo: A Romance Novel of the Antebellum South by Miranda Beall

Romance, hidden treasure, stolen jewels, fugitive slave hideouts, wild and all-consuming fires, an old slave graveyard, genteel southern Maryland parties, unscrupulous tobacco merchants, wispy ghosts, and restless spirits—bits and pieces of the past that have survived the journey to 1960’s southern Maryland former tobacco plantations. The pieces are all there, but how do they fit together? Two parallel descendants travel two separate roads to the same place in time and space. The present is haunted by the past and the future promises the same.
