Chris Eboch’s Haunted series debuted in August 2009. Haunted follows a brother and sister who travel with their parents’ ghost hunter TV show and try to help the ghosts. The series, for ages 8-12, will feature three books per year. The Ghost on the Stairs is set at a Colorado hotel haunted by a ghost bride from the 1880s who is waiting for her missing husband to return. The Riverboat Phantom features a steamboat pilot still trying to prevent a long-ago disaster. In The Knight in the Shadows, a Renaissance French squire protects a sword on display in the Metropolitan Museum in New York City.
Chris is also the author of The Well of Sacrifice, a middle grade Mayan drama, used in many schools. Kirkus Reviews called The Well of Sacrifice “[An] engrossing first novel….Eboch crafts an exciting narrative with a richly textured depiction of ancient Mayan society….The novel shines not only for a faithful recreation of an unfamiliar, ancient world, but also for the introduction of a brave, likable and determined heroine.”
Her eight other books in print include two inspirational biographies in Simon & Schuster's Childhood of Famous Americans series, Jesse Owens: Young Record Breaker and Milton Hershey: Young Chocolatier, written under the name M.M. Eboch.
