Review by: R. McCullough on April 27, 2016 :
I haven't written near as many books as you and I just read Under the Shade Tree.
Interesting take on a ghost story and especially the use of a Shade.
About to leave a review when I saw your e address (will still leave a review)
I liked the story and I wondered why did you left her wounds clearly evident as a Shade….
In my book I also had ghosts assisting people to find their killers.
Your story has given me an idea to have, in the sequel I'm writing - (or maybe a short story spinoff?), an IMS Mage that picks up a 'sidekick' ghost that helps him. If I do, would you mind if I credit you with giving me the idea due to your Under the Shade Tree story?
