TALK ABOUT
WORKING OUT YOUR FAITH
WITH FEAR AND TEMBLING


The biggest thing to happen to Skary, Indiana, is renowned horror novelist Wolfe Boone - or "Boo," as the locals fondly call him.  For the past sixteen years, the reclusive writer has been the town's greatest attraction, having unintentionally turned the once-struggling Skary into a thriving tourist-trap for the dark side: from the Haunted Mansion restaurant, famous for its "bloody fingers" (fries splattered with ketchup), to Spooky's Bookstore (where employees dress like the walking dead).

But when a newly reformed Wolfe suddenly quits the genre and subsequently starts to pursue Skary's favorite girl-next-door, Ainsley Parker, the little town made famous by his writings becomes truly horrified.  Soon a scheme is plotted to put the fright back into Skary - and get their most famous resident out of love and back into the thrill business.

Filled with humor, small town charm, and a gentle message of enduring faith, Boo shows how even the most colorful group of busybodies and hypocrites can become a community changed forever by God.

RENE GUTTERIDGE is the author of Ghost Writer and Troubled Waters.  She lives with her husband, Sean, and their two children in Oklahoma City.

"KNOCK KNOCK."
"WHO'S THERE?"
NOBODY IN SKARY INDIANA SEEMS TO
KNOW FOR SURE...


It appears that everyone in Skary, Indiana, is having an identity crisis of epic proportions-including the town itself. Once known as the haunt of the world's most popular horror writer, Wolfe "Boo" Boone, Skary started losing tourist business after Boo abruptly abandoned his career. Now the little town with the big marketing hook is up a creek-and on the brink of bankruptcy.

Meanwhile, the former best-selling author is selling cars and wondering, like the rest of the world, if he'll ever write again. Yet even as Boo's literary career gracelessly plummets, his fiancee, wholesome Ainsley Parker, is shooting to stardom as the media's darling new domestic diva.

Weave in a dreaming bride with a bargain dress and a few too many pounds on her hips, an unconventional therapist who has Skary in his thrall, a depressed cat, a dogged busybody, and a horde of strange, ghostly figures traipsing in and out of the woods, and it's easy to see why Skary is the quirkiest-and most charming-town around.

RENE GUTTERIDGE is the author of bestseller Boo, Ghost Writer, and Troubled Waters.  She lives with her husband, Sean, and their two children in Oklahoma City.

THERE'S A NEW EVIL IN TOWN.

AND HER SON PLAYS SOCCER.


When a soccer field complex springs to life seemingly overnight in the sleepy community of Skary, Indiana, and the local coffee shop begins offering computer access along with its suddenly overpriced beverages, goosebumps start popping up all over town.  Has soccer mom Katelyn Downey hatched a diabolic plot to turn their slow-paced town into a den of hip suburban iniquity – or is this the perfect solution to the community's financial woes?

Even as concerned residents take sides over their town's future, many are dealing with changes of a more personal nature.  Novelist Wolfe Boone can't seem to find the right niche for his post—horror writing efforts, and his new bride Ainsley – known for executing complicated events with penache and perfection – is bewildered by her inability to control something as seemingly simple as scheduling a pregnancy.  Frustration turns to envy when her wacky friend Melb discovers, to her utter terror, that she and husband Oliver are expecting a baby.

Through its quirky characters and winsome humor, Boo Hiss offers unexpected insights into the various ways people respond to change and demonstrates that growth often occurs amid the most difficult – and hilarious – circumstances.

RENE GUTTERIDGE is the author of five novels, including Boo, Boo Who, and Troubled Waters.  She lives with her husband, Sean, and their two children in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
