Not all ghost stories are scary. In these three short tales from Angel Sharum, the ghosts right some wrongs, help others and take care of their own affairs.
*Going Home: Addie has suffered long enough, but when it’s her time to go, she can’t bear to leave Rupert in a state of despair.
*The Dead’s Rights: Just because you’re dead doesn’t mean you can’t make sure you’re buried properly. Well, as long as you’re quick about it that is.
*Revisiting: Sometimes, you have to die to set things right.

A voice from the light called out to Adeline. At the sound, warmth surrounded her, and, Adeline noticed, Rupert sit straight up as well.Purchase on Amazon
She watched as Rupert looked around the room. “Addie?” he questioned.
Adeline couldn’t help herself. She rushed to his side. “I’m here,” she whispered into Rupert’s ear. She also slowly ran her finger down the back of his neck. A gesture she had done hundreds of times over their fifty years together, and one that Rupert thought he would never feel again.
He jumped at the touch and twirled around. Adeline wrapped her arms around him and he stilled. While she knew Rupert couldn’t see her, Adeline was certain he felt her. She hugged him tighter and kissed him on the lips one last time.
BiographyAngel Sharum is a Georgia Peach who sometimes writes stories that are rotten to the core. Never one to shy away from voicing her opinion, Angel found the perfect venue to share her thoughts when she started writing non-fiction articles for online publications.
The success of her articles convinced her to try her hand at other forms of writing. Putting what friends and family called a vivid and sometimes twisted imagination to use, she began writing poetry and short fiction. It didn't take long for her to realize this was where her true passion lay.
Writing short stories allows her to take readers on journeys of imagination that linger beyond "The End" and poetry offers a way for her to shake up people's emotions and make them think. According to Angel, when she accomplishes her goals a truly special connection exists between her and her readers.
