A few years ago, my daughter and I were talking about paranormal literature–which archetype would be the next big thing? My daughter joked, “don’t mummies need a little love?” I laughed at her pun. But then I took it as a challenge. Could I write a mummy story?
I ended up creating a campy funny-mummy tale that twists the genre a bit. You can read it for free on the Swoon Reads site: http://www.swoonreads.com/m/all-wrapped-up

Daddy swears that his new Forever Cleo anti-aging cream will make Cosmo Cosmetics even more millions—but does that have to mean keeping an actual Egyptian mummy in the house? 16-year-old Tempe Cosmo knows that Daddy’s really hoping to develop yet another Ugly-B-Gone miracle cream—one that will once and for all cure her burn scars. Tempe decides to return the mummy but accidentally destroys the poor thing during a high speed chase with a mysterious limousine. Soon Tempe starts seeing hallucinations—how else can she explain the hottie wandering around the garden? And there’s all that completed History homework. Prince Siamun demands that she find him another mummified body so he can reach his wine-and-girls afterlife. Tempe’s adventure includes crazy mummy cults, self-discovery, and romance! http://www.swoonreads.com/m/all-wrapped-up
