About the Book

Willamena Webbs was born almost seven years ago, on a cool, crisp night on the last day in October.  Her parents were so proud of their one and only daughter.  She was everything they expected her to be.

Well, almost.

On that memorable night, Willamena’s parents and her grandmother held her up to their ears to hear something very strange coming from her chest.  It was a soft noise but alarmed them all the same.

            “It can not be,” her mother Velma whispered. 

            “It is some sort of farce for sure!” her father William said.

            “What? You need a scarf?” Grandma yelled (she was little hard of hearing.)

But it was no farce...or a scarf.  For on that fateful night, their small daughter Willamena was born with something her family was quite unfamiliar with.

            A small, but fluttering heart beat.



Join the fantastic world of Willamena.  Funny and endearing, this seven year old girl lives in a crypt with her very, very different family who are simply “dying” to meet you.
