While growing up Tes Hilaire always wanted to see a ghost. Or meet an angel. Or dine with a vampire. Despite her vivid imagination, none of these things ever happenedÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ yet. In the meantime, she writes about them from her home in North Carolina where she lives with her hero, her cats, a son and two daughters-one of whom claims to actually have seen a ghost (Tes is very jealous). She hates lima beans, loves spaghetti, and still believes in the impossible.
