Walking several beats, reporter G G Collins racked up a lot of column inches, a few awards and a university fellowship. She never met a story she didn't like.
There was another side lurking. This side of her personality is fond of the strange, the frightening, the paranormal. When she graduated from children's books at about 12, she began her adult reading career with Shirley Jackson's "We Have Always Lived in the Castle." Wow! She wasn't expecting that ending.
The day she discovered the Hopi ceremony to call back the dead, she just had to ask the question: What would happen if the wrong spirit returned? "Reluctant Medium" resulted and a new series was born.
