Ghost Hand is a paranormal work of fiction about Olivia, a seventeen year old girl with PSS (an affliction causing one’s flesh to be replaced by an ethereal energy). She discovers her PSS hand has unusual powers. Under the guidance of other afflicted teenagers she learns to direct her hand’s energy. But she soon discovers there are those who wish to harness her hand’s energy and will do so at any cost.

The foundation has been solidly built to continue this trilogy with the reader left deliriously wanting for more.
