DESERT TOWN is dark crime fiction for those who have a taste for the perverse and violent. It was made into a major film, DESERT FURY, starring Burt Lancaster, Lizabeth Scott and Mary Astor. Itís the story of seventeen year old Paula Hallerís transition into womanhood as she defies her mother, Fritziís dominance. Fritzi runs the small town of Chuckawalla including the Purple Sage casino and saloon as well as a bordello or two. Fritzi can control everything but Paula and the tension between the two is drawn as tight as a drum. The scenery includes sprawling ranches, a very much out of place colonial mansion and the vast beauty of the desert. Mix in a notorious gangster, his insanely jealous torpedo, a love triangle, the town sheriff, some weirdly eccentric characters and innuendo aplenty. Once the sun brings all these ingredients to a boil youíve got the backdrop for a noir setting like no other.

Raven's Head Press is proud to announce an exciting new series debuting in 2014. Noted author Bobby Nash and Raven Head Press' Michael Hudson have agreed to develop Author and Ghost Hunter, Alexandra Holzerís GHOST GAL as a fictional series of novels based on her exploits as a budding parapsychologist. "GHOST GAL is neo pulp with a touch of gothic romance." says publisher Michael Hudson. "We're setting the series in the late 1950's to early 1960's to take advantage of the post World War II paranoia that was present as America was undergoing the McCarthy witch hunts, the fear of the atomic bomb, and the numerous representations of the alien invader that characterized the late twentieth century perceptions of 1950's America. Ghost hunters were plentiful but only one stood head and shoulders above all the rest. His name was Hans Holzer, the creator of the Holzer Method. This series centers around his headstrong but lovable daughter, Alexandra, who after college has just hung out her shingle to follow in her famed father's footsteps as a paranormal investigator. Of course this leads her into adventures far beyond the realm of belief. But how she solves various mysteries along with the help of her beloved father, mother and fiancť will provide plenty of chills, thrills and a treasure trove of character development. You are going to care about these characters."

"Alexandra and I have been talking about this project for several years now and the time is ripe to tell her story. She will be writing a "true case file" as a foreword to each book in the series as well as working hand in hand with Bobby and me to develop these wonderful characters. We could not be happier in having Bobby Nash, the winner of Pulp Arkís 2013 Best Author Award, as the one to helm this series. As Bobby and I discussed the premise or the series we found ourselves finishing each otherís sentences. For me this was a very good thing indeed. We know exactly who these characters are. It wonít be long before you will too!"

Alexandra Holzer says, "I was blessed with a truly unique, zany, and remarkable life story Ė one that I first depicted in my book Growing Up Haunted. Can you imagine being raised as a little girl in Manhattan, living with a Ghost Hunter dad that spoke like Count Dracula, and an actual Russian Countess for a mother? I am convinced that no one else in the world has a life story similar to mine. My stories of the paranormal make for compelling tales, and Iím delighted that Ravenís Head Press has partnered with me to develop this new book series. I am not only excited but passionate about the GHOST GAL series, because much of her is who I am. She's family. Joining the "Ghost Gal Family" are two amazingly talented men who brilliantly embody neo-graphic tales both in writing and in depicting art to its fullest. It's pretty neat and humbling, to be immortalized in pen and ink!"

Bobby Nash had this to say about the new series. "When Ravenís Head Press head honcho, Michael Hudson first mentioned the idea behind Ghost Gal to me, I was hooked. By the end of our initial discussion, it was clear that we were on the same wavelength and the ideas began to flow. I love it when that happens."

"I was honored when Michael and Alexandra Holzer entrusted me with helping to sculpt the amazing world of GHOST GAL. I hope our readers have as much fun with this one as Iím having writing it."

About Alexandra Holzer
Emerging publicly onto the Paranormal Scene in early 2005 as a writer first and foremost, Author and Paranormalist Alexandra Holzer, has also appeared on numerous film documentaries such as the 25th Anniversary of Poltergeist and Shattered Hopes: The True Story of the Amityville Murders. No stranger to the field of the unknown as her father, Dr. Hans Holzer, PhD, was the Modern Pioneer and Father of the Paranormal. Alexandra's published a few books, one of which, Growing up Haunted has been optioned for TV and film rights with award winning producers in Hollywood. She writes a monthly article based on her travels, meet and greets in the field for the popular holistic green zine, OM Times. Holzer has gone on investigations but feels that her expertise lies not just with haunted houses, places or people but also in getting 'impressions' and being 'sensitive' to her surroundings. This yielded a Psychic Paranormal Investigator aka Ghost Hunter who is also on the quest for the unknown with a sense of humor. She grew up haunted and therefore has known nothing else. She is the only second generation paranormalist blazing this type of a well-rounded, ghostly and occultist trail of the past, into the present and forward into the future. Currently Holzer lectures at events around the country and does investigations for groups teaching "The Holzer Method". For further information, please visit www.alexandraholzer.com
