Dead Harvest blurb:

Someone’s been raising the dead and it’s J’s job to find out who. As a detective operating in the Underworld, J—with her powers of shadow manipulation—is uniquely equipped for the job. What she isn't counting on is the help of an escapee from a mental institution who seems to attract trouble just by existing.

It’s up to J and T—two very unlikely allies—to find the necromancer and bring him before the Underworld Balance Magistrate for judgment before the human world gets wise to the dead walking among them.

Authors Info:

Tracey Phillips bio:
Tracey is a science writer by day and gamer by night. She’s worked in a tea factory, dropped creamed spinach on a four star General, wrangled the prose of college freshmen, and stage-managed more amateur theatrical productions than you can shake a stick at. Her random and misspent youth also included a yearlong sojourn in Scotland that left her with a strange fondness for daffodils and fife and drum music. She lives in North Carolina with her husband, two children, every video game console known to man, and an extremely low-maintenance cat.
Character bio
J’s birth and first year are shrouded in mystery. The earliest known mention of her is in conjunction with a child raised by a family of giant bats in the mountains of South America. She was discovered by a group of scientists who studied the familial relationship between the bats and the human child. She was taken back to civilization at the age of four and lived in a research lab for several months (there were rumors that she had a persistent strain of bat lice infesting her hair). At six, J traveled the world with Cirque de Soliel as part of a specialized tumbling troupe. After a few years, she parted ways with the acrobats and got a job at a farm in the Midwest harvesting soybeans. Later J popped up in New York as a chorus member in Cats.

After a few years on the professional bowling circuit, J went underground, the whiff of a points fixing scandal clinging to her tarnished reputation. It is rumored she was relocated to the Underworld for protection. It is still unclear as to whose.
