<h3>READ THE STORY BEHIND THE STORY!</h3>
<em>“Me and Mama inch our way into the dark room. Shadows of bodies lie on dirty mattresses on the floor, or stretched across the bare boards themselves. People moan like they’re in pain. Every step feels rocky ‘cause we’re walking on human trash.”
Living on the streets is hard enough, so when Copper Daniels’ mama drags them from their cemetery home in the middle of the night, the eleven-year-old knows they’re in big trouble. The two clash over this so-called “secret mission” to help an unreliable friend, but Copper can’t seem to protect her mama from herself. By the time, they discover the first dead body, it’s too late. They’re running from a killer, and Copper isn’t sure they’ll make it out alive.
<em>Stars Among the Dead </em>is a novella, set nine months before the first book in the series, <em>Pennies from Burger Heaven</em>.

<h2>INTERVIEW WITH THE AUTHOR</h2>
Q: What makes the Burger Heaven series special?
A: In 2008, I drove through the gates of my local cemetery, and heard an imaginary voice whispering in my ear. It was a homeless girl who said that she and her mama lived at the Warrior Angel, but her mom had gone missing. I started writing the Burger Heaven series that night to see what happened to Copper Daniels’ family, and to her life. I love Copper because she’s a strong female protagonist, with an unforgettable story.
Q: Why should readers give your books a try?
A: Because the Burger Heaven series are fast paced action books, with complex characters and great plots. They’re intense stories that aren’t afraid to explore dark matters, but with humor and hope along the way. I enjoy exploring age-old themes: good versus evil, forgiveness, redemption, as well as love conquers all.
