Laura J. Stegmaier Releases New Children's Book
by BWW News Desk - Mar 31, 2014

Connecticut's Northwest Hills conjure up images of winding country roads, 18th century clapboard houses, spectacular fall foliage and the next Christmas tree for Rockefeller Plaza.

It's a good thing eleven-year-old adopted Chinese empath/precognitive Ling-Ling Turner is a resident. Ling-Ling is a PPI (Paranormal Private Investigator). When strange things happen in town, most adults either 'pooh-pooh' them or come up with a logical explanation. Ling-Ling knows better - she is a firm believer in the veracity of paranormal activity, who delves into bizarre occurrences to seek the truth. (more...)
