figure, or writes figuratively in mysteries. In any event, a
New Jersey native, E.J. has written for such publications as
The New York Times, Entertainment Weekly,
American Baby and USA Weekend. Night of the
Living Deed is the first E.J. Copperman novel. It will
be followed in 2011 by An Uninvited Ghost, the second
in the Haunted Guesthouse mystery series.
E.J., having worked as a newspaper reporter, teacher,
magazine editor, and screenwriter, writes stories that
combine humor and mystery with just the right amount of
spooky supernatural happenings and a large does of Jersey
Sound like we’re being evasive? Well, the fact is that
E.J. Copperman is the pseudonym of a well-known mystery
novelist, now embarking on a new type of story that includes
some elements of the supernatural as well as a fair number
of laughs. And the Copperman novels will have a different
attitude, a different setting and completely different
characters than anything that has come before, so E.J.
really is a new author.
In Night of the Living Deed, Alison Kerby buys a huge
Victorian on the Jersey Shore to renovate into a guesthouse.
Not long off a divorce, Alison is hoping she and her
nine-year-old daughter Melissa can find a fresh start in the
town where Alison grew up.
But she has a problem. Two problems. Their names are Paul
and Maxie, and they’re ghosts. And they won’t
let Alison’s renovations go on unless she helps them
with a little problem: The ghosts want Alison to find out
who murdered them. Doing so will speed up the home
improvement project, but there’s a pretty serious
catch: The killer seems to be intent on making Alison the
next ghost to haunt her guesthouse.
