A Legacy of Love and Murder on with #MFRWauthor @Brenda Whiteside


 Convinced she was born to be an artist, #MFRW author Brenda Whiteside never took her love of writing seriously…until sometime after college, after marrying a man doing a stint in the army, and after the birth of her son, she found more satisfaction filling a blank page with words than an empty canvas with color.

Brenda and her husband are gypsies at heart having lived in six states and two countries. Currently, they split their time between the prairie in Northern Arizona and the RV life. At home or in the RV, she spends most of her time writing stories of discovery and love entangled with suspense.

New Orleans' homicide cop Maggie York is at the top of her game until a sniper's bullet changes everything. She flatlines, comes back. But not quite the same. She sees and hears things...ghostly things.
Six months later the voices have faded but Maggie's still on medical leave from alleged PTSD. If only. Frustrated, she sets out to track down her shooter, but things get complicated...a ghost wants his own murder solved, and sexy homicide cop, Josh Brandt—her replacement—wants her to butt out of his case.

Unraveling her case draws them down twisted but intersecting paths…and Josh grows wary of how the attractive redhead is staying one step ahead of him. Despite mutual suspicions they continue to track the killer…knowing failure may cost Maggie her life.

Since my heroine Maggie York is haunted by ghosts of murder victims, it seemed fitting for her to help me compose a list of thirteen famous ghosts. Here's the group we chose, in no particular order.
1. The Hitchhiking Ghost is a very young girl who appears at the side of a dark road, claiming she's lost and needs a ride home. When rescuers arrive at her address, the girl in the backseat has vanished and occupants of the house report having a daughter who died years before.
2. The Ghost of Christmas Past (A Christmas Carole), a rather harsh dose of truth.
3. Man in Gray, an English aristocrat who haunts Drury Lane in London. Stay out of his way...he carries a sword.
4. King Hamlet is probably the best known of Shakespeare's many ghosts.
5. The Bell Witch (Kate Batts). In Ghost Walking, Maggie York's relatives warn her to avoid ghosts like this notorious, vengeful spirit haunting a Tennessee farm family since 1817.
6. (tied) Slimer, the green ghost from Ghostbusters movies; Casper, The Friendly Ghost from comic books and movies.
7. Anne Boleyn, whose headless spirit haunts the Tower of London where she was executed.
8. Bloody Mary is reputed to have murdered her own children. If you want to see her, repeat her name three times while standing in front of the mirror in a darkened bathroom.
9. Elvis, who hangs around Graceland reportedly hiding from his overzealous fans.
10. The Brown Lady was photographed in 1936 on the stairs of Raynham Hall, Norfolk, England. Lady Dorothy had been confined there by her brutal husband until her death.

And for the last three, we selected some of the White House ghosts, those former inhabitants who have refused to leave.

11. Abraham Lincoln has appeared so often since his death he has earned the title of The White House Ghost. Most reported sightings occur in the Lincoln Bedroom and the Yellow Oval Room.
12. Dolley Madison originally planted the Rose Garden. When attempts were made to change it, she appeared and protects it to this day.
13. Abigail Adams hung laundry in the East Room. Recent staff have reported smelling wet laundry and her scent of lavender.
