About the Author

Anna Elias is a screenwriter who began her career as Don Johnson's assistant on Miami Vice. She's worked on feature films such as Nell, The Rainmaker, The Client, 12 Monkeys, A Time to Kill, and Practical Magic. She has written and co-written spec films, TV scripts, and award-winning shorts. Anna's passion for justice translates to her work. This was especially true on the set of John Grisham's A Time to Kill. Canton, Mississippi had just suffered great racial hardship and division in a Mayoral race. With Anna's encouragement, the movie crew made extra efforts to befriend, buy from, and work with the townspeople, and it served to break down walls of inequality and injustice that had divided the town for decades. The impact was so positive that Dan Rather traveled there to tape a 2-part special for 48 Hours.

Reviews

"In the Vessels Program, spirits of the dead return to inhabit the bodies of human vessels and visit their still-living relations to right past wrongs. Sam has just established a program in Reno, Nevada, and recruited four vessels, Tal, Link, Avani, and Aaron. They have all suffered from life's cruelties and are more than willing to let the spirits inhabit them for their seven-day journey of redemption as the spirits seek forgiveness or to forgive loved ones. One of the Spirits, however, is a terrifying, vengeful revenant not interested in redemption. As the three benevolent spirits work toward accomplishing their missions, the vessel for the fourth must figure out a way to prevent this vengeful spirit from harming others. This unique novel mixes social commentary, Native American mysticism, the power of love and forgiveness, and ghostly spirits. This gothic speculative tale will appeal to sf and horror fans alike, and the open-ended finale leaves plenty of room for a sequel." Booklist
