The Haunting And Paradise Taxi is a nostalgic remembrance narrative with a dash of Americana folklore—locale is in northwest central Florida native "Cracker country"—the storyteller is the once fun loving big apple city reporter Clarissa Max who receives a pink slip but finds another kind of life when she serendipitously lands in Citrusville. The man Clarissa leaves behind won't let her go and it may be love or lust, but at Ed's Diner the greens simmering in a ham hock sauce are the specialty with aging Crackers talking about sinners who aren't willing to give up sinning and end up on a raft going toward the falls.

Among the cast of characters Clarissa introduces are old timer Nellie Charmin who spouts about a Paradise Taxi that takes the willing to change where they have to go, the forgetful Henry Benson knows the winds of progress bring more than the scattering of oak leaves from the town's ancient oak trees, and retiree Letty Lovelace looking for a man that is a traveling companion has a friend called Max who is the catalyst for a mystic spinning of fateful threads leading Clarissa toward another kind of destiny that includes a haunting.
