Carolyn Aspenson debuts ‘Unfinished Business’

Novel a tale of ghostly encounters



CUMMING, Ga. — A mom who begins seeing and helping ghosts is the topic of a local author’s debut novel.

Carolyn Ridder Aspenson creates the world of Angela Panther, a housewife with the newfound ability to communicate with ghosts. The book, “Unfinished Business: An Angela Panther Novel,” is available in print and as an eBook.

As Aspenson explains, Angela Panther has the perfect life. At 40, she’s married to her best friend, has two children and is skating through life without a scratch.

Then her mother returns as a ghost. Angela’s mother opens a portal between Angela and the afterlife, and the ghosts need her help.

“It definitely touched a chord with anyone who has ever lost a loved one,” said Christie Giraud, an editor. “The writing was strong and the dialogue — which many people simply cannot write — was terrific.”

Aspenson is a published writer for Countyline magazine, Northside Woman magazine, Appen Media Group and Internet publications. She lives in Cumming with her husband, three children, two dogs and one cat.
