The Haunted series
Jon doesn’t believe in ghosts. Not even if his mother does, and married a man who researches ghost sightings for his own TV show. Not even when they travel with the show, and visit “haunted” places.
But his younger sister Tania claims she can see the ghosts. Deciding to believe her is just the first challenge. Softhearted Tania wants to help the ghosts. First the siblings have to find out what happened to keep each ghost trapped in this world. Then they have to help the ghosts move on—sometimes by letting them take over Tania’s body. All this while dealing with their overprotective mother, a stepfather who’d want to exploit Tania’s gift, and a changing assortment of human troublemakers.
Life gets interesting when your sister sees ghosts. And the TV show’s shooting season is just beginning....

Reviews of Haunted:
"Eboch has a nice writing style, and she crafts her stories well, carefully building suspense, showing her action, and setting scene. She discusses various theories of what ghosts might be and ghost hunting, without drawing conclusions as to whether or not they exist. Each book stands alone.” - Connie Gotsch, A Mouth Full of Shell and Snap Me a Future
"Great book, I couldn’t put it down. It was pitched exactly right for the age group, great idea, totally believable characters and fast moving. But more importantly the writing was flawless. Haunted is a book that shows a writer in full control of her craft.” - Jen McVeity, author of Shadow Seeker and On Different Shores
“ I wanted to tell you, also, that your books are great, I read them millions of times, at least it felt like millions, I lost count.” - Cheyenne, a young reader
