About the Author

Tara Hudson is a brand new author, but her fascination with ghosts goes back to childhood days spent with her grandmother, who would take her out to a strange cemetery guarded by rusted iron gates and tucked into the mountains of south-eastern Oklahoma. Only later did she learn that this place was her family's graveyard. Ever since, she's continued to visit cemeteries - with her two closest girl friends. After a particularly eerie visit, she began writing a story to entertain them, imagining a ghost girl, Amelia, and the living boy who can truly see her. It became 'Hereafter', the haunting story of loss and first love.
