Please join me in welcoming Misty Evans to my blog as she talks about the behind-the-scenes scoop of the television show, Ghost Whisperer. Misty is also running a contest to celebrate the release of her latest novel, Soul Protector. (Contest details below).
Ghost Whisperer Goes to the Movies by Misty Evans
I’m a big fan of ghost stories and movies. In my new release, SOUL PROTECTOR, my heroine is a ghost whisperer. While researching real life ghost whisperers, I came across a lot of information on Mary Ann Winkowski. Mary Ann is the real life inspiration for the TV show “Ghost Whisperer”, the author of “When Ghosts Speak” and the co-author of “The Ice Cradle” and “The Book of Illumination.” She has worked with federal agencies as a paranormal investigator and even has a cookbook of ghostly recipes.
She’s a fascinating lady. In particular, I found an article she did for NextMovie.com pretty cool. The article is all about which movies get it right when it comes to earthbound spirits. You can read the full article here.
My favorite ghost movies are:
All three made Mary Ann’s list of “Close But Not Quite”. According to her, the two movies that were “Dead On” (pun intended, I think) were Stir of Echoes and Witchboard. I’ve never seen either movie, but I’m putting them both in my Netflix cart (for research purposes, of course!).
What is your favorite ghost movie? I’m giving one blog commenter a free copy of SOUL PROTECTOR or any of my backlist.
Misty is currently at work on the next books in all her series. She likes her coffee black, her conspiracy stories juicy, and her wicked characters dressed in couture.

The secret to redemption lies in their souls.
Dr. Nathan Hunter has forty-eight hours to save his job and find the missing Salt Coast Clan, a lost civilization locals believe is a myth. When ancient human remains turn up at the site of a new state water project along the Oregon Coast, he’s sure the lost tribe is real. Before he can examine the bones, however, a pretty female lawyer gets an injunction to stop him.
Nila Willopah sees ghosts. After failing to help a young boy cross over to the afterlife seven years ago, she hung up her shaman’s cape, left her family, and went to college to pursue a law degree. Three days before the bar exam, she’s summoned home by her grandfather to defend a sacred burial ground from a billion dollar state water project.
Although her soul is in danger from the spirits unearthed at the site, Nila is the one person who can stop the project and protect her ancestors’ last resting place from Dr. Hunter. She’s also the only one who can help the angry spirits cross over.
Nila suspects the sexy anthropologist is hiding a dark secret behind his clear blue eyes and skilled hands. A secret she wants nothing to do with. But when one of the ghosts latches onto his soul, Nila must set aside her fears and suspicions and once again enter the world of spirit communication to protect him.
Even if saving his soul means sacrificing her own.
