Steampunk Granny goes from Coffee To Ghosts

On Friday, August 15th, my daughter Marie Reid and I headed out to Mullica Hill and the Crescent Moon Coffee & Tea Shop.

I was there to sell Roof Oasis my first book in a series of apocalyptic tales with a twist and Tall Tales and Short Stories by our South Jersey Writer's group. My daughter was there to sell her lovely jewelry. It was a beautiful day and there were many visitors to the shop. Side note: Great coffee selection.

I was able to coerce Sharon, the owner of this fabulous little gem of a shop located on 141 Bridgeton Pike, to take a picture with me.

Kathy was the first person to purchase a book that day. We chatted about my using what is happening to our food and water supply in today’s world and how it led to the catastrophic events in my book.

A very good friend and her son and granddaughter stopped by to visit while I was at the Crescent Moon. Elaine’s granddaughter Autumn seems to like Roof Oasis, too.


Later that night my ghost hunter buddy, Jean, and I headed to the Laurel Hill Cemetery. It was an event for professional photographers to get some rather unusual night shots of the beautiful site. While the pros were busy doing their thing, Jean and I did ours: ghost hunting.

Luckily, the other people there did not have a clue to what we were doing or they might have been a bit frightened to know that the cemetery was extremely active that night especially on the road heading towards Millionaire Row.

I was able to spot a female spirit, but only in mist form, but when I snapped the photo, I got this.


               All in all, it was a delightful day for selling my book and communing with the dead.
