Haunted Women Tales


 Vanessa and Nick are en route to Washington, D.C. to celebrate their first wedding anniversary, but their differences threaten to ruin the weekend before it has a chance to begin.

When an accident further up the tracks leaves their train temporarily stranded in Harpers Ferry National Park, a chance meeting with the town's most iconic resident offers insight into a bit of local history.

Will a poignant message from the past help put the newlyweds' future back on track, or are they destined to derail?

Narrated by the amazingly talented Jennifer Gilmour, the audiobook version of Screaming Jenny puts you right in the middle of the story.

I hope you enjoy this narration of my fictional spin on an authentic Appalachian legend from my hometown of Harpers Ferry, West Virginia.
