The Crossings: Inspired by True Events
It’s a ghost story…with a twist…
There’s a grisly fatality on the railroad near Lake Champlain. The Road Foreman called to investigate the tragedy, is a woman by the name of Claire Montgomery, who also happens to be both a Witch as well as a Medium.
When Claire arrives on the scene and climbs up onto the engine to interview the traumatized train Engineer, the investigation begins to spiral out of control as the spirit of the girl who was hit appears inside and communicates with her. The exchange troubles Claire to her core as she begins to suspect a crime has been committed.
With the help of her skeptical best friend, Teri Cooper, the two embark on a dangerous game of cat and mouse in the darkest regions of the spirit world to solve the crime.
The Crossings offers the rigid realism of the railway while pulling the reader behind the veil and into the world of majick—demystifying the practice of Witchcraft and the occult.
