About the First Book and Series:  The series is set in Tia Keating’s group home, where all of the foster kids have magical gifts.  Firestarter Kayla Cruise has been kicked out of another foster home, her twelfth, and she’s back at the railroad tracks where she always finds solace. Surprisingly, a woman shows up there as an apparition, offering something Kayla had been longing for all her life, a forever home. Not just any home, Tia Keating runs a group home for teens with special gifts…gifts like the ones Kayla has spent years running from. The problem is that when something feels like it is too good to be true, it usually is. Evil is stalking Kayla and her new family….   The authors  are well on their way to developing a truly bombastic and breathless adventure in Finding Fire, the sequel to Finding Home.


Meet the Co-Authors:


Liz Author PhotoLiz McMullen has had a passion for history and world religions since she was a little girl looking up at her Dad as he told her stories. She fed her addiction to politics, history, mythology, and religion while at Mount Holyoke College and during her junior year abroad at Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland. She went backpacking around Europe, visiting all the places she had been reading about. Although her title as the Traveling Where’s Waldo of the family has been retired, her wanderlust lives on in her writing. Liz is an author, mentor, publisher, and documentarian. Her debut novel, If I Die Before I Wake, is a Rainbow Award Finalist.

Shelia Powell was born to loving parents in the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina. She was raised with her “Aunties” who “just knew things,” and was therefore able to develop and hone her psychic skills at their knees. She has helped others with her spiritual coaching for as far back as she can remember. Her readings always offer optimism and evidence that we all remain connected in spirit, even after death.

Shelia PowellThe first psychic-medium ever used on The Travel Channels Ghost Adventures, Shelia is known for her special blend of homespun humor and gentle compassion. She has a large client base spanning several countries. Among her clients are people from all walks of life including physicians, lawyers, other psychic mediums, teachers, business owners, professional athletes, award winning authors, and soccer moms. Shelia also has an ever-growing celebrity base which includes stars of Baywatch and Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, as well as cast and/or crew of House, Entourage, Brothers and Sisters, CSI Miami, Melrose Place 2009, 90210, Star Trek (2009, 2010), We Are Men, Mad Men, Dallas, and Masters of Sex, to name a few. Shelia is a Certified Spiritual Coach, Intuitive, Empath, Medium, ULC Minister, and Reiki Master.

Shelia has been writing her whole life but finally published her first book, Memoirs Of The Happy Lesbian Housewife, in October 2014 under the nom de plume of Lorraine Howell. It is a finalist for a Goldie Award. The stretch into paranormal books was a natural and necessary progression.

Historical Fiction

Liam O’Malley was just looking for a warm bed, a decent living and an honest job. The California Gold Rush wasn’t paying off for this son of an Irish Immigrant, and he was tired of living in squalor. He headed north to San Francisco, hoping to find employment. Shortly after his arrival in the City by the Bay, he did find employment, but he soon questioned how honest it was. He found himself working as the assistant to a Daguerreotype photographer who specialized in portrait photography in his studio, but he also photographed ghosts and departed spirits for Spiritists in the area.

Today, these people would be called Mediums or Psychics but at that time in history, they were considered Spiritists. Labeled as harmless entertainment by some, relied upon heavily by the most influential businessmen and politicians of the time, considered dangerous to civilized society in some circles and even considered witches by others. While taking his “fake ghost pictures” and happily growing their ever expanding photographic business, Liam’s work brought him together with many Spiritists. He fell in love with the daughter of one and battled against the most dangerous anti-Spiritist campaigner of the era. While his photos started out as fakes, after an unexplained tragedy, Liam receives a huge surprise that makes him rethink everything. Were these so-called Spiritists actually con men or were they the real deal… you decide!



Meet Author: Steve Bartholomew

WhiteHallPub_Steve Bartholomew2Steve Bartholomew is a prolific author who specializes in writing historical fiction. Following a previous life, he has turned his attention to telling stories about the Old West during the 19th and early 20th centuries. He has discovered there are thousands of untold stories to be found in old newspapers, magazines, and sometimes even history books.

The stories he writes are mostly made-up fiction, but then so are a lot of history books. His favorite characters are based on real people from the Old West, The Gold Rush era and from San Francisco’s colorful history. He has learned that what people most value are not the bare bone facts of the past, but the stories we tell about them.

Steve (whose friends mostly refer to him as “Bart”) derives his idea from listening to people, walking around old neighborhoods, and a lot of reading. As for his previous life, he had an undistinguished career in civil service. His first actual job was in the U.S. Army. Someday he may write a book titled “All I Need to Know I learned in the Army.”

He now lives in a rural part of northern California, where he likes to listen to folks and look at trees. Steve is a wonderful story teller and you are sure to fall in love with his characters. For more information on Steve’s many books, visit or check out his author page on amazon.
