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.
A haunting vision of a forgotten girl. A house holding dark secrets. A spirit caught within a trap. Just when Jack and Lauren thought they were taking a vacation. Jack and Lauren have just a few days to rescue a spirit trapped in an historic home in Richmond, Virginia. Tough enough but even tougher when the other ghost who’s kept him there will do anything, even kill, to keep things as they’ve been for nearly a century.

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.
I just want to touch base real quick to share that two of my books were chosen to be included in this amazing October Book Fair! This is a really fun list, very selective with regard to which books were included (and there were a lot submitted). The selection covers the spectrum, ranging from urban fantasy, sci-fi, and dystopian through contemporary romance and young adult. All books are $0.99 – $2.99 for the duration. Needless to say, I was very happy to have my books selected. One of them, you’ll spot right away as you scroll down the image at the link to the YA section. The other one, well, that might be something of an Easter egg hunt. Right, you guessed it, one of the Urban Fantasy novels is mine too. I’m leading quite the double-life these days. Which brings me to this…read more
Well, summer is wrapping up and I’m literally writing this at the neighborhood pool, as I try to squeeze a last few hours out of the season. I lived in Seattle for years and, while Virginia summers can be miserably hot, humid and buggy, all those years of cloudy and cool left me a bit addicted to poolside living (I think I went swimming like three times while living in the Northwest).read more
Anyway, on the writing side, I have a few things in the works. One is that I’ve outlined a new Streetlights Like Fireworks story and will start writing the actual book soon. As always, I look forward to hearing from Jack and Lauren again. It’s funny because the other night, while thinking about the new book, I imagined Lauren delivering a snarky comment to Jack. It actually made me chuckle and I had to email it to myself so I didn’t forget what she said (so, I guess that was Lauren’s way of saying, “Hello? What are we waiting for here? Let’s get moving!”).read more
