Streetlights Like Fireworks Series
Psychic visions, visits from ghosts and telepathic connections. Must be time for date two. Nothing prepares Lauren for suddenly connecting with the mind of Vicky Stearns, a girl she’s never seen before. Her confusion soon turns to fear when she learns that the girl went missing earlier that same day.
A ghost who brings visions of fire. A runaway girl on the streets. A psychic who might be lying about someone’s death. It must be time for Jack and Lauren to get serious. Teenage psychics, Lauren and Jack, find themselves pitted against a ticking clock as they try to rescue a girl the police are searching for, at least one man is hunting, and who another psychic claims to have already seen dead.

In the afterlife, you’re not supposed to see ghosts. But it seems that’s exactly what’s been happening to Nikki when she starts encountering spectral visits from Curtis, her friend who started a new life on Earth twenty years ago. Curtis’s presence in the “In-Between” has to mean something serious. Nikki soon learns that, three days from now, an incident on Earth will end Curtis’s new life. Now, Nikki and her friends must find a way to alter the outcome of a future event only they know will take place. Otherwise, Curtis is going to die again, taking with him any hope Nikki and her friends had for starting over.
Angels, demons and dream worlds. A whole new level of risk. In the afterlife, Henry and Nikki are asked to help Rose, a girl trapped in a dream world created by guilt at her past life actions. Can they make Rose trust them enough to see that she was a victim and not a killer? Can they shatter the illusion keeping her trapped as a ghost?
David Pandolfe is the author of the Streetlights Like Fireworks and Jump When Ready series. Reading his books, you’ll soon learn that he likes writing stories about psychics, ghosts, unusual settings and characters who approach adventure with a sense of humor. He’s not sure where the ghost obsession came from but he figured he might as well roll with it.
Before becoming a writer, David did a few other things. For example, he was once a bartender in Seattle, a singer/songwriter in a Los Angeles rock band and a college writing teacher in Richmond (not all at the same time, of course). These days, he lives near Richmond, Virginia, with his wife, two kids and a dog who’s terrified of thunder. Not the best situation for their dog since it thunders from spring until fall in Richmond.
A year ago, I reported how it feels like every time NaNoWriMo comes around I’m in the editing phase. That was true, for some weird reason, a few years running. I know what you’re thinking – that it was just an excuse and I could have stopped editing and dashed off a new 50,000 word manuscript that month before returning to my work in progress. Actually, you might be right and that did occur to me as a way to participate. But I’ve also figured in the past that it probably made more sense to get the new book done and out there as soon as possible, especially since I didn’t have that many, even if it meant missing out on all the fun.read more
I’ve always really liked October. For one thing, Halloween is way up there as one of my favorite holidays. How can you not like a day when you get to dress weirdly and eat loads of candy? Well, I do that fairly often, actually, but I definitely do it on Halloween. Richmond is also a place with hot summers and, typically, pretty warm falls, so I have no problem with things cooling off and trees starting to show some fall colors. In general, I just like October.read more
It was only a few months ago that I posted here about the release of The Dragonfly Season (Streetlights Like Fireworks, Book 2). As soon as that one went out, I started working on Distance (Streetlights Like Fireworks, Book 3). This new one came together quickly and I had a lot of fun writing it. These characters have become like family to me—and, while I tell myself I should start a new series soon and I plan to do just that—I keep enjoying the company of Jack, Lauren and all the others who’ve come to life since writing Streetlights Like Fireworks, that book I imagined as a stand-alone novel before readers convinced me otherwise (thank you, readers!). The last few months went by fast and Distance (Streetlights Like Fireworks, Book 3) is out there, as of today!read more
