Ghost Author Announces Autumn Appearances

Elizabeth Eagan-Cox, author of the Shannon Delaney paranormal mystery novels sets appearance schedule for the Burnt Orange season.

Inland Empire, CA, September 10, 2009 --( "I thought of formally announcing my autumn schedule as the Burnt Orange Tour, then decided not to. I am familiar with Victorian phrases, and burnt orange refers to the colors of autumn, however, in today’s world the phrase might be misunderstood. Still and all, I do love the description…burnt orange conjures up images of autumns of a bygone century… a good imagery association to my paranormal mystery novels, especially in regard to the ghost character of Eric Blackthorne, a master magician from the late 1800s."

Eagan-Cox’s novel series is based on concepts from her Celtic ancestry. This includes the complexity of the main character; a young woman named Shannon Delaney and Shannon’s ever-evolving intuitive intelligence to speak to the past. Eagan-Cox explains:

"Shannon’s blood memory talents are derived from my own Celtic traditions and so is the interwoven story between her and the ghost of Eric Blackthorne, a Scotsman who came to California in the 1800s and married into a prominent California Hispanic family."

This novel series is the opportunity for Eagan-Cox to combine her study of California history with her own heritage and use cold-case facts of real history to weave a paranormal story line in which Shannon Delaney solves mysteries that range from century-old murders to obscure poisonings and pirate’s treasure.

Her appearances on radio and in-print interviews can be a different story…

"I do get off track and on more than one occasion a radio host or interviewer has reminded to plug my books. It’s because I get caught up in answering questions and talking in depth about topics such has blood memory (intuitive talents inherited from ancestors) and the time in-between segmented sleep known as "Quiet Wakefulness." It’s not that these are new topics, quite the opposite, they are ancient, and certainly the beliefs are not exclusive to Celtic culture. Though it seems that we, in the Celtic culture are more open about discussing them."
