Ripley Patton lives in Portland, Oregon with one cat, two teenagers, and a man who wants to live on a boat. She is an award-winning short story writer and author of The PSS Chronicles, a young adult paranormal thriller series.
Ripley doesn't smoke, or drink, or cuss as much as her characters. Her only real vices are writing, eating M&Ms, and watching reality television.
Olivia Black has a rare birth defect. Instead of a hand made of flesh and blood, she was born with a ghost hand.
And when her hand goes rogue, doing things she never imagined possible, Olivia must run for her life from a group of men bent on taking her power for their own nefarious purposes.
