Facts about "Ghost Town"

Ghost Town was my very first book I ever wrote. It's release actually took somewhere around 10 years to happen.

It was inspired by an old abandoned school near where I live. All of the locations are factual also. The story itself is complete fiction, but it was one I came up with as I went about my life. The ghost town of Neosho Falls also really did inspire the band Kansas.

One of my favorite lines from the book is "Come hell or high water" and if you've read the book, you'll know how important that line is. After I finally had the nerve to publish it, I came across the song by Passenger with a very similar title. I listened to it and felt it really seemed to capture the spirit of everything that happened with Jack. If You're interested, here's the official video for the song.

It was always intended to be a series, but after I wrote the first it took a while for my confidence to get high enough to continue the story. I'm still incredibly proud of it and love hearing others tell me how much they like Willow.

And speaking of the main character, she is technically named after the blacktop road that leads to Neosho Falls. I say technically because when I first saw the road's name, I wanted to name my daughter Willow. I didn't get a chance to do that, but I thought naming a character that was a good second best.
