Waking Up Dead is the first book in the Life After Series by Amanda Fasciano. A lifelong paranormal, horror, and fantasy enthusiast, urban fantasy was the next logical step. This is a world where ghosts do exist, and what they do behind the veil might surprise you. Book two of the series, Dead Vessel, is currently undergoing edits and is expected to be released later this year.
Amanda currently masquerades as a mild-mannered receptionist when not rocking the keyboard with ghostly tales. While her husband and two teen-aged children are aware of her secret identity as an author, they have yet to build her a cave-like lair beneath the house for her writery gizmos. They haven't even given her a proper glass case for her Super Author suit!
