About the author:
Judi Miller wrote Ghost A La Mode in response to the many letters she received from kids who loved Ghost in My Soup and wanted to know what happened to Scott, Malcolm, Big Mikey and all the other characters (real and ghostly) in Chagrin Falls
Since Judi Miller was five, she wanted to live in New York City and be an actress. Graduating from the Cleveland Playhouse Children's Theatre she went on to Ohio University where she majored in theatre arts. She left there to go to Julliard School of Music majoring in the Martha Graham technique. She did summer stock where in 'Time Out for Ginger' she acted with then unknown and "wonderfully nice" Dustin Hoffman.
One day Judi had an epiphany: She wanted to be a writer. She was told by an editor and dear friend to earn while she learned so she went into advertising as a copywriter. A creative director was looking at her portfolio and told Judi she could be a different writer if she went to the School of Visual Arts for Graphics, so off she went to learn the meaning of concept which she applies to this day. Not really a 9-5 type of person Judi started her own free-lance company. During this time she wrote many commercials for a radio station heard in the Garment District. She would take menus and business cards and create commercials that would become classics.
She also wrote for newspapers and national magazines, sometimes under the pen names Jennifer Lee, Marla Jenson and Duane Facquard. Judi penned a series of self-help books for adults and younger readers, and a number of Young Adult books followed by numerous Adult suspense titles.
Ghost A La Mode
Ten year old Scott's move to Chagrin Falls has created
lots of problems and since Malcolm, his house haunting
ghost friend left he has no one to talk about it with. His
Mom is busy becoming a TV commercial star and the
only person willing to talk to him is...well...one of the
most unpopular boys in school.
Then it all changes...
On the wall was a hooded ghost about ten feet tall with
sunken eyes and long, knobby hands. I wanted to run
away, but I was afraid the ghost would catch me.
"Who is it?" I whispered desperately.
My mouth fell open.
"Sco... Sco... Sco..." It suddenly sounded scratchy. Like a
record player that was stuck in one spot.Then I knew.
There was no tall ghost on the wall. I got up and looked
at my record player. There was a record on it called
"Sound Effects for Ghosts." No one had really been
I have been tricked. By a ghost.
"Malcolm?" I asked softly.
"None other," came a voice. "Long time no see, my boy!"
