The spirit wants her name back. The con artist wants her painting back. And Oliver just wants his life back to normal. Good luck. 

Oliver Atkinson’s life is busy. Between trying to write a book, children, and housework he doesn’t have time for the spirit that’s taken up residence in his head. Only she isn’t going anywhere until she gets her name back. 

Central to it all is a stolen painting, that’s gone missing again leaving behind a lot of questions, and a dead body. Oliver must team up with a con artist to solve a murder. Along the way he has to deal with liars, thieves, thugs, and little old ladies. 

And he needs to be home in time to do the school pick up.

Writing is one of those things that I have always done. I vividly remember spending most of an English exam writing a complicated adventure story as the answer to an exam question. I passed the exam, either because of, or despite the answer.
