Check out what is being said about this paranormal tale and pre order your copy from Orca Book Publishers today!


"Mary Jennifer Payne gives her readers an edge-of-the-seat experience

High interest, low vocab novels fill an important gap and provide less able readers with great books which will hopefully lead them to reading success and an interest in expanding their reading horizons. Payne uses surefire ingredients to come up with a terrific story, blending the theme of grief and bereavement with the excitement of the supernatural and murder mystery genres.

Highly Recommend"

From The Canadian Review of Materials (Vol. XXVIII, Nov. 12/2021)

Grave Message!

I am truly grateful to be a part of the Hi-Lo series from Orca Books. Be ready to meet Jaylin in Grave Message in early 2022. Learn more about it here!

More readings and events coming soon!


I acknowledge that the work I do is hosted on the lands of the Mississaugas of the Anishinaabe, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy and the Wendat. I also recognise the enduring presence, resilience and resurgence of all First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples.
