Sara Williams "One Big Itch"

Mystery novelist Sara Williams demonstrated a distinct knack for writing breathless page turners when her first novel, The Don Juan Con, was optioned in Hollywood by producer Robert Evans for Paramount Studios. Sara’s latest riveting thriller, One Big Itch, proves to be no exception. Set in Hawaii , it portrays a unique culture that the author found endlessly fascinating in her decade of living in the Hawaiian Islands . Sara makes a capti vating speaker and audiences love to share in her adventures. One Big Itch is set in Honolulu, the playful tropical city that's also haunted, as Detective John 'Oluhana Maalaea Spyer well knows. Too bad Spyer is a hapa haole (ha-pa how-lee), a half white, and so pays only half attention when Madam Pele herself warns him off the Randolph Haverhill case. No decent Hawaiian ever says no to an old friend, which makes Spyer the quintessential "soft boiled" detective. Despite Madame Pele's warnings, Spyer investigates the death of his childhood pal Randy Haverhill, opening his own psychic wounds and putting the love of his mainland girlfriend Maya to the test. Spyer is soon privy to a frightening tale of obsessive love. Trouble is, Randy became too popular with the ladies for his own good. It appears that one of Randy's crazed lovers shot Randy on his doorstep. So why do the police persist in the notion that Randy was murdered by his own son?

Amy Bruni SyFy's "Ghosthunters" Wednesday's 9 PM PT/ET
Amy Bruni is a good example of what happens when a hobby turns into a passion, which in turn becomes a way of life. Like many in the paranormal field, Amy grew up in a very haunted house. Yet, unlike most in that situation, Amy's family embraced it. Her father was an amateur paranormal investigator and routinely, he and Amy would investigate haunted sites. Understandably, at a young age, she was reading and absorbing everything paranormal related she could –- and as she grew to adulthood, that didn't change. Amy initially began investigating with a local paranormal team in Sacramento, California. As soon as she stepped foot in the field professionally, her pursuits took off. Her lifetime of supernatural knowledge drew the attention of Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson of The Atlantic Paranormal Society and the Syfy show, "Ghost Hunters." She now produces their syndicated weekly radio broadcast, "Beyond Reality Radio" and is a member of the TAPS team. In her quest to spread knowledge of the paranormal nationwide, Amy started organizing paranormal conferences, and again with Hawes and Wilson, started the company, Beyond Reality Events. More recently, Bruni has been using her connections in the field to conduct important research on the nature of group dynamics in the paranormal, and she's begun lecturing on ghosts and the supernatural. Her goal is to work across the paranormal community with the hope that serious field research can occur and can be shared within the community.
