Short Bio:

Jordaina Sydney Robinson grew up and, despite many adventures further afield, still lives in the North West of England. For fun she buys notebooks, gets walked by her husky puppy and sings really loudly and really badly whilst driving her trusty old Seat, Roger. If you want to find out just how bad her singing is then you can visit her official website at www.JordainaSydneyRobinson.com and ask her. 

Long Bio:

I was fourteen when I attempted to write my first novel. Half finished, riddled with spelling mistakes, grammatical errors and printed in pink ink, I gave it to my English teacher and asked her for feedback. A month later she handed it back to me and told me it was "good" without having read it.

How did I know she hadn't read it? The story was about an assassin for hire who disposed of her "kills" in her bathtub by dissolving their remains in sulphuric acid. I'm pretty sure if she had read it, one heck of a letter would have been sent home. I look back at this now and can see that the pink ink and poor spelling were the least of my problems. 

With the lack of constructive criticism from my English teacher, I placed my novel writing on hold. I dallied mainly with typical teenage, angst-ridden poetry until several years later, on a romantic whim, I turned a boy I knew into a superhero, literarily (not literally) speaking.

Because I'm super awesome, I included some of his friends and chronicled their superhero adventures as a birthday present to him. My relationship with the superhero version of the boy lasted the completion of a dozen short stories. My relationship with the real life boy didn't. And I was writing pretty dang quick too! 

There were a couple more plot twists but since they don't involve radioactive spiders, magical wardrobes or handsome Tolkien-esque elves they're not really worth talking about! So that's pretty much the yellow brick road to how I got here.

Beyond Dead

Dead less than twenty-four hours, Bridget Sway enters her afterlife to a job that doesn’t pay, a fashion disaster for a uniform and more rules than she can shake a stick at. Things seem as bad as they can get. And then she finds a dead ghost stuffed in her locker...

The characters were extremely likable. I loved how spunky and sassy Bridget was. She was bold and was never afraid to speak her mind ... I highly recommend this book to anybody who enjoys reading a creative and unique mystery novel.

Deader Still

Bridget Sway has survived the first week of her afterlife – but only just. Working a job that still doesn’t pay, wearing a uniform that’s still a fashion disaster and now facing a week-long assessment, things can only get better … right? Wrong. And there’s another dead ghost in her locker to prove it.

A Little More Dead

Having pretty much accepted her fashion disaster of a uniform, her job that doesn’t pay and the fact she’s dead, Bridget Sway is doing okay. But she’s the only one who is. Edith is avoiding her, Sabrina’s not sleeping and Madame Zorina is positive she’s being haunted.

On the upside, at least there aren’t any dead ghosts stuffed in her locker…

Beyond Dead

Dead less than twenty-four hours, Bridget Sway enters her afterlife to a job that doesn’t pay, a fashion disaster for a uniform and more rules than she can shake a stick at. Things seem as bad as they can get. And then she finds a dead ghost stuffed in her locker.

Since the police are desperate to arrest her for murder and lock her up for eternity, Bridget’s new best friend convinces her they should solve the murder themselves.

But with a handsome parole officer watching her every move, an outlaw ghost befriending her and two persistent mediums demanding her attention, solving the murder is not quite as easy as it sounds. And when “murder” turns into “murders”, Bridget needs to solve the case … before she becomes the next dead body stuffed in her locker.

Deader Still

Bridget Sway has survived the first week of her afterlife – but only just. Working a job that still doesn’t pay, wearing a uniform that’s still a fashion disaster and now facing a week-long assessment, things can only get better … right? Wrong. And there’s another dead ghost in her locker to prove it.

When Bridget’s caught holding the proverbial smoking gun over the second body, the police are even more determined to pin the murders on her. So once again it’s left to Bridget and her friends to prove her innocence, but with the Ghosting Busters (the afterlife über police) taking an interest in her, things aren’t going to be so straightforward. 

While dodging both the police and her handsome parole officer, simultaneously trying to pass her assessment, Bridge needs to find the killer … before the killer finds her.
