A story began to form in my mind of an idealistic young writer subjected to the horrors of that terrible battle and coming home to a country that didn’t understand how the war had changed some of the people who’d experienced it.
Arlington, Texas (PRWEB) October 09, 2012
As troops return home from war-ridden areas, the number of cases of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) are on the rise. This is what inspired author Lissa Bryan to write “Ghostwriter.” In an interview with Sandra from myfictionnook.com, Bryan explains how an article on the internet about the “Iron Harvest” caught her eye. “Every year, the farmers who live around the battlefields of WWI, especially around Verdun, find tons of unexploded shells, weapons and other debris when they plow their fields.” says Bryan. Her curiosity was piqued, and when she began researching the Battle of Verdun, she was surprised to find that great American authors such as Ernest Hemmingway and E.E. Cummings where among some of the wartime volunteers. “A story began to form in my mind of an idealistic young writer subjected to the horrors of that terrible battle and coming home to a country that didn’t understand how the war had changed some of the people who’d experienced it.”
“Ghostwriter” tells this story of a beautiful and touching romance between Sara and Seth. Newly single, unemployed, and with her savings dwindling to an all-time low, Sara thinks things are finally looking up when she lands a job ghostwriting a popular politician’s biography. She rents the affordable island home of her favorite author, Seth Fortner, who mysteriously disappeared in 1925. Strange occurrences begin to happen as objects break or go missing and terrifying visions appear. It all makes Sara wonder if Seth ever left, or if she’s slowly losing her mind.
She gets no answers from his family, who closely guards the secret of his disappearance. Through an old trunk of letters Sara discovers in the attic of her seaside cottage, she unravels the mystery and becomes caught up in a tale of greed, lost love, and the horrors of World War I. Will she be the one to break the “Fortner Curse” by helping Seth conquer his demons while healing both of their hearts in the process?
“Ghostwriter” will be available for purchase on October 11, 2012 through Amazon, B&N.com, and iTunes.
