More About the Author

When I was in the 7th grade I took one of those career aptitude tests - you know, the ones where you answer a bunch of questions and the results indicate what profession you'd best be suited for? Yeah, well my test results indicated I was best suited for a career as a government spy.

A SPY!

I think I had the coolest results in the entire class. :)

Needless to say, I did not follow that particular career path - or maybe I just took the more indirect route. In my thirties a very good friend of mine who is now one of the world's most renowned psychic mediums suggested I stop ignoring my talents and dive right into the professional world of a psychic intuitive. On a lark, I did. And the results were pretty mind-blowing. Within just a few short weeks even I couldn't deny it - so much of what I predicted for total strangers was coming true and I really had to accept the "gift" so to speak.

Over the years I've built a really fabulous clientele and all those experiences have helped me create the Psychic Eye Mysteries, the Ghost Hunter Mysteries, and - for children - Oracles of Delphi Keep. And along that way I discovered my true love - writing.

Writing is one of those passions that gets me out of bed in the morning and invigorates my day. I love spinning a good yarn, and when I feel I actually get it right - wow! There is no better feeling.

In fact, the other day I was kicking back after a looooong day of writing, which ended in the completion of a manuscript and I remember just marveling in the fact that I actually get paid to daydream! I can't think of a more satisfying way to spend a life. And let's face it - it's a whole lot safer than working some covert operation. Although - I'm pretty sure the benefits might be better at the CIA. Still, I'll stick to my daydreams...at least for now... :)

Demons... is the second book in Victoria Laurie's Ghost Hunter Mysteries, and I liked it even better than the first book.

In a diabolical twist of fate the phrase "better with time" occasionally does not carry the positive meaning most of us imagine. Like convicts who grow stronger and craftier doing time Hatchet Jack has had thirty years to hone his hatchet and attain stunning potency & wickedness in the netherworld behind his portal. Now he's on our side of the portal threatening the future of young innocents. M.J. will have to put her friends at risk to force Hatchet Jack into the underworld and spike his portal shut forever; but, can she do it alone.
Victoria Laurie has upped the voltage in this sequel to "What's a Ghoul to Do?" with crackling tension between planes of existence; and between the sexes. And her sense of humor sparkles in details such as magnetic armor & grenades, and Doc's inspired vocabulary. This is a fun read for everyone!

I was looking for a new author. I picked this book. Sorry I did. The characters lacked depth and Gilley and M.J. left me cold. This could have been a good book, had the author taken the time to put some emotions into her characters and added little more substance to the plot.
A waste of my time and money.

Victoria Laurie is hitting her stride with this book. 2nd in the Ghost Hunter Series. In this outing, the same cast of characters are hot on the trail of Hatchet Jack who is terrorizing Northelm Boarding School on Lake Placid. The headmaster is thwarting their attempt to rid this ghost because he can't risk the bad publicity, but with Teeko's persuasive ways, he soon opens up the school,: maybe there is more to hide than what he told them - but what is a ghost hunter to do when children need her. Very funny moments, but still reminds me a bit of the Scooby-Do cartoon.

"Demons Are a Ghoul's Best Friend" is a most pleasing psychic mystery. It's a really fun read by an author who gets better with each book she writes. This is a cozy mystery that teenagers and adults alike will enjoy. Victoria Laurie is also the author of the Psychic Eye Mystery series featuring Abby Cooper.

As this is the second title in the Ghost Hunters Mystery series, I recommend starting with book one which is titled "What's a Ghoul To Do?". This will help you better understand Dr. Steven Sable and his role in the partnership and M. J.'s life. The first book will also give you more background on all the characters including M. J.'s friend Karen who is nicknamed Teeko. If your local bookstore does not have the first book, don't worry, this can be read as a standalone.

The story revolves around M. J., her techie partner Gilley, Steven, and Teeko in their quest to help Teeko's 14 year old niece who was terrified by Hatchet Jack, a local ghost. The school principal and the local community try to deny the existence of Hatchet Jack. Of course the tapes of the incident in the school show only Teeko's niece. You'll get caught up in their search for clues in the hunt for Hatchet Jack. And you won't be able to guess the ending. I was totally absorbed in the mystery plot and the evolving and tenuous romantic relationship between M. J. and Steven.

If you like curling up on the couch with a cup of hot tea and a good mystery like me, you'll love "Demons Are a Ghoul's Best Fiend". Read it and enjoy!

Format: Kindle Edition
This book was so bad, I read the whole thing in about an hour just so I could get it out of my apartment. It featured several pet peeves of mine: the comic-relief gay best friend who has unrequited crushes on every inappropriate person in the book (because that's how all gay people are- lustful and delusional!), the romantic chemistry between the heroine and her love interest that the reader knows about purely because other characters keep saying "there's so much chemistry between you two!" Too bad we don't see any of it for ourselves. Also the love interest speaks English not like the foreigner that he is, but like a developmentally delayed child. Sexy! Plus, all the "clues" that these detectives find come from ghosts conveniently giving them information. If you like Victoria Laurie, go ahead and buy it, it's more of the same garbage from her- but if you are thinking about trying one of her books for the first time, I highly recommend that you do not.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
M.J. Holliday has the gift of communicating with the dead, even though sometimes it doesn't feel like such a great gift....

Every school has its bullies, but Northelm Boarding School located near Lake Placid, New York, houses a real whopper: a deadly demonic poltergeist named Hatchet Jack. M.J.'s good friend Karen has asked her--along with her partners Gilley and Dr. Steven Sable (a.k.a. Dr. Delicious)--to send Hatchet Jack back through the portal he came from.

With renovations at the school starting in a week, there isn't much time for ghost hunting. With summer upon the town, it's just making Hatchet Jack more restless. He is not only attacking students, but now that M.J. and her crew have shown up, he's turned his attention to them. Poor Gilley is continually harassed by Jack, and M.J. has a few encounters herself. Throw in three ghosts of little boys who were apparently Jack's victims-and M.J.'s got her work cut out for herself!

Dr. Delicious is also chasing her around, for other reasons than Hatchet Jack has, that is, if he can avoid M.J.'s attack parrot! With all this going on, you'd think that would be all of her troubles-but no, she also gets to deal with a very uncooperative dean who is persistent in them not having access to the school. With a demonic disturbance of this magnitude she must show no mercy and see to it that Hatchet Jack gets sent back through his portal for eternity.

This is the follow-up to Laurie's first _Ghost Hunter Mystery, What's a Ghoul to Do-and it had a lot to live up to for me! And boy did it ever! Victoria Laurie just gets better and better with every book. I was laughing at Gilley, confused and upset along with M.J., and frustrated right along with Dr. Delicious.

Armchair Interviews says: If you're looking for a really good paranormal mystery, this is one definitely not to pass up!
