I spit dirt out of my mouth and shamble home to my wife, only to find out I’ve been missing for six weeks. That’s impossible, but the last thing I remember is… Well, nothing.
My wife thinks I left her, but I love her more than life itself. Now it’s just a matter of convincing her of that as we piece together the missing time with the help of a friend.
The problem is, I’m starting to think I did something worse than just leave. That I am something worse than an unfaithful husband.
Turns out the most impossible thing to happen to me isn’t being murdered… It’s coming back.
When I get home, the garage door is still up. Everything else looks normal and undisturbed. The front door is closed, and no shadows move behind the curtains.
I sit in the car, fighting off disappointment and fear. Maybe I am just crazy.
Maybe I’d been dreaming, sleep walking. I’d gone back to sleep quickly after the neighbor’s dog had quit barking, but then I’d awakened to sounds outside. Rustling, and the trashcan lid. There had been a feeling in the air, a weird pressure, but I’d ignored it, thinking raccoons had gotten into the trash. I’d turned on the light to chase them off when I’d heard the scraping at the door. Then I’d heard him say my name.
Shaking, I turn off the car and shut the garage door behind me. I won’t run again. This is my chance to see Grady, even if it is all in my head.
Breathing deep, I get out of the car and quietly enter the house. The lamp is still on in the living room, and I step toward the warm glow. As I round the corner, I see him, and stop. My knees weaken under me and I sink into a chair. “Oh my God.”
He’s lying on the couch, looking gray, dirty, and thin, and just as dead as he should be.
But then he opens his eyes and turns his head toward me. “I’m sorry I scared you. Can we talk?”
However he appeared, whatever he is, my dead husband is lying on our couch, talking to me.

Hello and welcome, readers! We have Jayelle Morgan here with us today. Jayelle, thanks for visiting us.
How long have you been a writer and how did you come to writing?
I’ve been writing seriously for about four years. It’s something I always wanted to do since reading romance novels when I was young. One day I decided to write a story that I had been thinking about before bed for many years. That was book 1 in my first series, Burn!
Tell us about your title featured in: A Cursed All Hallows’ Eve
My book is Bind My Body. It’s a spooky, emotional, fun intersection of Voodoo magic, zombies, and romance.
How did you come up with the storyline?
I was listening to a song, and this story just ‘showed up’, playing like a movie reel in my head. It was after a health scare with my husband, so between the song, my fears for him, and my love of PNR, this story was born.
What inspires you to write?
Emotions, mainly. I want to make people feel things when they read my stories.
Tell us about your other books:
My other books are all mainly in my Elemental Hearts series. It’s a series about HOT warriors with elemental powers, falling in love and saving the world!
