Please welcome today's paranormal guest author Kelly Hashway. Kelly is the author of Touch of Death.
EJ: When did you begin writing?
I've been writing for as long as I can remember, but I got
serious about it in 2004 when I decided to try writing a novel (and
actually finish it). After writing a very bad first book, I went back to
school to learn more about writing for children and teens, and I began
seeking publication in 2009.
EJ: What brought you to the paranormal genre?
I've always loved the paranormal. It's like our world, only better.
EJ: If you could be any paranormal or have any one supernatural talent, what would it be? Why?
I'd to fly because I hate driving, but I think I'm going to go
with being a witch of some sort. Being able to do magic would be
EJ: Tell us why readers will enjoy your new release.
If you enjoy mythology and zombies, then Touch of Death is the
book for you. It's Medusa, Hades, and zombies all rolled into one.
EJ: If your book(s) were being made into a movie, who would you cast for the leading roles? Why?
This is a tough one for me because I don't usually look for
actors who match my characters. I really think the girl on my cover
looks like Jodi, though. When I saw her, I thought, "Yes, that's her!"

Touch of Death (Touch of Death #1) by Kelly Hashway.
Jodi Marshall isn’t sure how she went from normal teenager to walking
disaster. One minute she’s in her junior year of high school, spending
time with her amazing boyfriend and her best friend. The next she’s
being stalked by some guy no one seems to know.
After the stranger, Alex, reveals himself, Jodi learns he’s not a normal
teenager and neither is she. With a kiss that kills and a touch that
brings the dead back to life, Jodi discovers she’s part of a branch of
necromancers born under the 13th sign of the zodiac, Ophiuchus. A branch
of necromancers that are descendents of Medusa. A branch of
necromancers with poisoned blood writhing in their veins.
Jodi’s deadly to the living and even more deadly to the deceased. She
has to leave her old, normal life behind before she hurts the people she
loves. As if that isn’t difficult enough, Jodi discovers she’s the
chosen one who has to save the rest of her kind from perishing at the
hands of Hades. If she can’t figure out how to control her power,
history will repeat itself, and her race will become extinct.
