)-- Her father begins to warn Melinda James from the "Other Side" about terrifying and unbelievable upcoming events. His death was no accident, like everyone assumed. But Melinda doesn’t take her father’s words to heart. Soon, her family members and friends begin to disappear, and all she’s left with is a "crazy" story that none of the psychiatrists will believe. As she journeys from one dangerous incident to the next, her dead best friend and family members try to help from the "Other Side." Will it be enough? Can dead people protect the living?
Does this "Other Side" even exist? Will Melinda get her new doctor, Alex Leever, to finally believe her so she can be freed from the asylum? As portals open and close and a new "friend" arrives on the scene, Melinda must find a way to understand that the voices speaking are sending a direct warning: that the killers from the past still exist and are beginning to get far too close for comfort.
The Other Side: Melinda's Story is available in print and ebook format.
