Grave Discoveries: Selby-Hall Cemetery


This is the second cemetery I ran across in my travels a few weeks ago. The Selby-Hall Cemetery is in Camden County, Missouri near Linn Creek.

I love how it rambles up the hillside, and I especially admire its wrought-iron gate.

Following are some gravestones of interest.








They just don’t make headstones like these anymore. The new ones have much less character, I think. If you’d like to know exactly who is buried in the Selby-Hall Cemetery, you can see the list here

It looks like 1814 is the earliest birth date. That’s pretty impressive.

What do you think? Are there still any uncollected souls wandering around this cemetery? Any sleepers? Perhaps my reaper, Deacon, should take a look?

They see death. Can they share a life?

Ruth Scott can read the energy of every person she meets. Then she meets Deacon Walker. She can see his ice-blue eyes, his black hair, and his gorgeous face. But this beautiful stranger has no aura.

Deacon is just as unsettled by Ruth—and, having spent more than two hundred years ushering souls to Purgatory, Deacon is seldom shocked by anything. As he helps Ruth to understand her true nature, she awakens desires that he decided long ago a Reaper can’t afford.

A demon invasion forces Deacon to confront the darkness in his own past even as he fights to save the human souls he’s charged to protect. When he’s taken captive, his first concern is for Ruth. But Ruth just might be able to save herself—and the Reaper she can’t live without—if she can learn to wield her newfound powers.


Reap & Repent is an urban fantasy romance about reapers, the grim kind, falling in love and saving the world from the forces of evil  Available now at Amazon and all e-book retailers.
