When their colleague is murdered, three wanna-be authors can’t help meddling in the investigation, which puts them on the killer’s radar.

Yet all three find themselves caught in a cat-and-mouse game where anything can happen and no one is safe.

What if you could attend your own funeral?

Jayden McQueen’s day begins when she wakes up dead. But that’s the least of her worries. Turns out, she’s a murder victim, and nobody knows it but her.

Who killed her? Why? How?

In her quest to find answers, Jayden sets in motion events that propel humanity towards a future already written. But just because events appear inevitable doesn’t mean you shouldn’t fight them. Does it?

While a work of fiction, Earthbound explores concepts drawn from a variety of teachings, including those of Doreen Virtue, Ph.D., whose courses the author attended in Kona, Hawaii in 2008 and 2010; the author’s education in parapsychic science and parapsychology; and research she did for her master’s thesis on the after-effects of near-death experience.
