Author has written 65 stories for Ghost and Mrs. Muir.

What really transpires after the credits roll? GaMM's been a huge part of my life since I was nine. Like many described in salon.com's "Saved by Popular Culture" series, the show's simple sweetness and love (unrequited or not) provided an alternate reality that saved me from the madness of my own family life.

PS I grew up to be a writer who works from home!

Cried the Woman in Love with the Dead Man reviews
In the book as well as the movie, Captain Gregg had a way of disappearing that was not necessarily commensurate with Mrs. Muir's feigned indifference to their supernatural relationship. The TV series only hinted at the devastating consequences.

She leant her head on the headboard of the bed they'd never shared. Why had she let him slither so elegantly out of all culpability for June's so-called little ditty? (with thanks to Gayle...it never occurred to me that CM was the offended party here)
