J.G. Passarella is a pseudonym for two talented new writers, Joe Gangemi and John Passarella who are a novelist and a screenwriter respectively.
In J.G. Passarella's Wither (Pocket. 2000. ISBN 978-0-671-02481-9. pap. $7.99), Wendy Ward, a novice white witch and freshman at a small Massachusetts college, discovers she is the only one with the power to save herself, her pregnant professor, and a six-year-old girl from possession by a local coven rousing to life after a 300-year dormancy. Fans of Buffy the Vampire Slayer will appreciate Passarella's skill at setting an ancient horror in modern times. Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
