When I Moved Upstairs

When I Moved Upstairs

It was like a scene in a movie when the girl has a nightmare. She locks her knees, pushes out her elbows, opens up her eyes and screams. Only I had no knees and no elbows. My eyes were blank, and my scream was silent. That's when I knew I was dead.
So begins a surprisingly upbeat story about a girl who is murdered as she walks home from school. When she moves upstairs to heaven, she finds a unique connection between "here" and "there" and discovers her murderer with help from best friends in both places. It is a novel of resilience, faith and hope.
