By Terri Bruce
Nothing life is free. Turns out, nothing in the afterlife is, either.
When recently-deceased Irene Dunphy decided to “follow the light,” she thought she’d end up in Heaven or Hell and her journey would be over.
Boy, was she wrong.
She soon finds that “the other side” isn’t a final destination but a kind of purgatory where billions of spirits are stuck, with no way to move forward or back. Even worse, deranged phantoms known as “Hungry Ghosts” stalk the dead, intent on destroying them. The only way out is for Irene to forget her life on earth—including the boy who risked everything to help her cross over—which she’s not about to do.
As Irene desperately searches for an alternative, help unexpectedly comes in the unlikeliest of forms: a twelfth-century Spanish knight and a nineteenth-century American cowboy. Even more surprising, one offers a chance for redemption; the other, love. Unfortunately, she won’t be able to have either if she can’t find a way to escape the hellish limbo where they’re all trapped.
The only thing she did know—which she’d learned after she died and ended up stuck on earth as a ghost—was that every story, every myth, about the afterlife was true: the Norse stories of Valhalla and Valkyries; the Greek myths of Charon and the Elysian Fields; the Sumerian belief in a bleak and faded world made of mud and dust; and, most unsettling of all, everyone’s belief in some sort of final judgment. All these, and more, were real.

Hereafter Book 1 (in case you are as excited about this series as me!!)
Thirty-six-year-old Irene Dunphy didn’t plan on dying any time soon, but that’s exactly what happens when she makes the mistake of getting behind the wheel after a night bar-hopping with friends. She finds herself stranded on Earth as a ghost, where the food has no taste, the alcohol doesn’t get you drunk, and the sex…well, let’s just say “don’t bother.” To make matters worse, the only person who can see her-courtesy of a book he found in his school library-is a fourteen-year-old boy genius obsessed with the afterlife. This sounds suspiciously like hell to Irene, so she prepares to strike out for the Great Beyond. The only problem is that, while this side has exorcism, ghost repellents, and soul devouring demons, the other side has three-headed hell hounds, final judgment, and eternal torment. If only there was a third option…
About the Author
Terri Bruce has been making up adventure stories for as long as she can remember and won her first writing award when she was twelve.

She produces fantasy and adventure stories from a haunted house in New England where she lives with her husband and three cats. Her second novel, Thereafter (Afterlife #2), will be released June 1, 2013.
Praise for THEREAFTER
“Packed with action, mystery, and romance, Thereafter makes the afterlife anything but dull.” Jennifer Allis Provost, author of Copper Girl
“Thereafter is an intelligently written, thought-provoking read. Irene’s back, and the afterlife will never be the same!” Lori Sjoberg, author of Grave Intentions
“[Thereafter] is at times frightening, funny, and touching…Death was the first problem for Irene, and this new novel makes the next problem even more fascinating.” Sue Burke, translator, Amadis of Gaul
