The wait is over!

Oh Great, Now I Can See Dead People is now available now in both paperback and Kindle!

Sam is back and this time she is trying to organise her wedding to Jack. That would be fine, if she hadn't accidentally let a whole host of spirits inhabit our world when she conducted a séance for her mother's WI meeting on Halloween.
It would be fine if her newly appointed spirit guide, Ange wasn't more interested in Heat magazine and what Cheryl Cole's wearing than helping her.
It would be fine if she hadn't been told that her ex-best friend Amy's life was in danger.
With half the village possessed, a spirit guide who thinks she's an extra from TOWIE and her old friend in trouble, will Sam ever make it down the aisle?

 

Deborah's debut novel
Oh Great, Now I Can Hear Dead People 

Unlucky in love, Samantha Ball is not only broke, she's £22'000 in debt and soon to be homeless if she can't get the money together for her rent, so when she's offered the chance to earn some money for a hotline to the heavens by giving tarot readings, she jumps at the chance, despite the fact that she doesn't have a psychic bone in her body - or does she?
When Sam starts to hear voices of real dead people her psychic career really takes off and she soon becomes a psychic to the stars with her own slot on a prime time TV show.
Someone however doesn't share Sam's joy and it's only when they set out to destroy her reputation does Sam really need help from the other side... Can Sam really prove herself and will she realise that the love of your life is often right under your nose?
