Tons of fantastic reviews are raining down on ‘In The Graveyard Antemortem’ and it’s just the beginning! So what’s this mysterious story about…
Seventeen-year-old Lisa Jacobs is determined to solve her father’s gruesome murder. But before she can investigate in her own small town, she is forced to spend the summer with her Uncle Clayton, the owner of Grand Hallow—a massive funeral and mortuary operation the size of a small city.
Her move to Grand Hallow only deepens the mystery as she begins to suspect the strange and chilling occurrences there are linked to her father’s death.
With the help of her acid-tongued best friend and deadbeat brother, Lisa must unravel the secrets of Grand Hallow—before it’s too late.
In the Graveyard Antemortem is a mystery/suspense novel with a healthy dash of horror.
How did author Stephen Stromp come up with this story…
“I had the idea for In the Graveyard Antemortem back when I was 17. Back then, I wrote myself into a corner. I never quite knew how to pull it off. But over 20 years later, I dusted off my old notebooks and took another stab. Although much of my original, hand-written manuscript wasn’t usable (hey, I’ve learned some new words since then!), it became the framework of the final story in the book; and many of the ideas and characters remain intact. In fact, Lisa, Ned, Tina, Richard and Clayton, the gas station and Grand Hallow were all there waiting, hoping they wouldn’t be forgotten.
I knew I wanted the novel to keep the fun and scary tone of my original draft–with lots of suspense and moments of horror. But one thing I never set out to write was a mystery. Yet as I was writing, I realized I had to embrace the mystery element to do the story justice. I’m beyond excited to finally be sharing the story with you that I could never shake out of my head after all these years. I finished it as a gift to my 17-year-old self as well as a gift to lovers of mystery, suspense and horror. Thanks for reading!”
