Benedict is the inventor of a clean energy design, the sale of which has just made him an overnight sensation. There are only two problems: 1) the design doesn't work, and 2) Benedict can't concentrate on how to make it work because his house is haunted. Ever since the family experienced a break-in, which the intruder may or may not have survived, each member has had some run-in with the spectre. The ghost makes it ever clearer that it wants something from them and won't rest until they deliver. Author of "The Empress of Idaho." Hometown: Edmonton, AB. Print run 15,000.
