The Zackie Stories Book 1
BY REYNA FAVIS
What if everything you knew about the afterlife was wrong? Welcome to Fia’s world.
Fia hates the dead. With bleeding wounds and broken bodies, the spirits infect her with the anguish of their last living moments. Thrust into adult life after a childhood spent in an institution, the assaults escalate, and the world thinks she owns the deluxe edition of crazy.
Fia needs a dead-free zone if she’s going to learn how to cope with life among the living. Convinced that the woods are empty and safe, she signs on with a wilderness search and rescue team.
Bad assumption. Big mistake. There is no relief from the demanding dead.
When Fia witnesses a psychopomp leading a dead boy through a portal to the afterlife, she is frantic to learn the secret of how to free herself from the dead. Can she overcome her necrophobia and serve the Guide of Souls?
For listeners who enjoy a riveting tale with surprises at every turn. Soul Search will keep you listening till the end.
[Soul Search is the first novel of the Zackie Stories. Soul Scent and Soul Sign are available on Amazon. Soul Seek, Book 4 in the series, will be released in 2021.
Available as ebook, paperback, and on Kindle Unlimited.]
The Zackie Stories Book 1
BY REYNA FAVIS
REYNA FAVIS gleefully writes tales of supernatural suspense while dust gathers on the vacuum cleaner. Her novels have been praised by readers for the very human stories behind the hauntings that create unexpected plot twists, drama, and even moments of humor. Reyna is a K9 handler for search and rescue and can frequently be found on her belly as she is dragged through the woods by a search dog. If you do not enjoy walks in the woods, she invites you to connect with her on Facebook. Reyna has a PhD in biology and was one lab accident away from becoming a super villain before she took up writing. She lives as an unapologetic introvert with her husband, dogs and cats in New Jersey.

GARLIC ROASTED POTATOES
This is an easy recipe that tastes so good, my husband declared that it couldn’t possibly be good for him. I originally found the recipe on the Food Network (https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ina-garten/garlic-roasted-potatoes-recipe-1913067)
3 pounds small red or white potatoes
1/4 cup good olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons minced garlic (6 cloves) — add more to taste (I add LOTS)
2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley (I usually don’t have this, so I omit)
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Cut the potatoes in half or quarters and place in a bowl with the olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic; toss until the potatoes are well coated. Transfer the potatoes to a sheet pan and spread out into 1 layer. Roast in the oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until browned and crisp. Flip twice with a spatula during cooking in order to ensure even browning. (I flip maybe once. I’m lazy like that.)
Remove the potatoes from the oven, toss with parsley, season to taste, and serve hot.
Thanks, Reyna, for sharing your story and recipe with us!
