The series is currently made up of three books, A Ghost of a Chance, A Ghost from the Shadows (Elizabeth’s latest work), and A Ghost Meets an Angel (due out in 2010). What’s great about these books is that Elizabeth’s background in nonfiction helps her creates an authentic and historic quality that you might not find in other similar books. Elizabeth enjoys digging up history through her own ancestry that is documented to the 1600s in America and to Patriots of the American Revolution of 1776.
Elizabeth lives in California and the California settings and history in her work also adds another layer of interest. In A Ghost of a Chance and A Ghost From the Shadows she used many elements of history to bring the story to life, including the study of late-nineteenth century sleight-of-hand magic, Victorian architecture, Craftsman bungalow architecture, and details regarding California’s founding Hispanic culture.
Elizabeth is a member of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, known as the D.A.R. She is equally proud to be a member of the Irish Clan Mac Aodhagain with headquarters at Redwood Castle, Ireland. The authentic spelling of her surname Eagan is Mac Aodhagain (“Mac Egan”).
Published by Cambridge Books, The Shannon Delaney Paranormal Mysteries are available at Elizabeth’s website where you can also learn more about her work.
