It’s here! The book of my heart I wrote last summer is now available everywhere in ebook (y’all have had paperback and hardcover for three months already).
- a haunted house!
- spooky but also funny!
- mid-thirties heroine!
- chronic illness rep!
- Not a Romance Book!
- childhood trauma but no sexual abuse!
- no forgiveness for abusers!
- nothing bad happens to the cats!
It’s the book that will have you muttering under your breath, “Fuck you, Greg” for days afterward (apologies to cool dudes named Greg).
Amidst the 2020 pandemic, Norah Sloane has been sheltering in place with her ex-boyfriend—the equivalent of three toddlers in a trench coat pretending to be an adult—who abruptly informs her he thinks she needs to move out. Coincidentally, her estranged father has just died and left his family’s home to her, and in a fit of defiant frustration, she packs her bags, her cats, and all the toilet paper, and drives five hours north to the tiny village of Hope Falls to claim her inheritance.
Selling the big, partially renovated old house during a global pandemic is out of the question, but the bills are paid for a few months to give her time to get on her feet. It’s the best solution, all things considered.
So what if it’s haunted?
The soundtrack is here if that’s your thing.
(And yes, I solemnly swear, if you buy this book you will find that nothing bad happens to the cats.)
Once you’re done Dweller, yes, Norah’s story is over, but there’s another book set in that world called Watcher of the Woods that comes out next year.
After eighteen months staying home under rolling pandemic lockdowns with her girlfriend Joy, artist Thea Palmer has decided the strained relationship has run its course and she’s ready to end it—right after the stress of her birthday has passed.
Unfortunately, her surprise party comes with a special gift from Joy that puts the breakup on hold: a week-long cabin rental in the tiny northern Ontario community of Hope Falls, for just the two of them.
No contact with the outside world.
Joy says it’ll give them the perfect chance to reconnect and maybe restore Thea’s creativity after pandemic stress wearing down her desire to paint. But the cabin creaks at night under invisible steps, and the woods have trees that seem to shift in the corner of her eye. Thea swears she sees a strange white figure on the lake beckoning to her and an empty boat that drifts by in the early morning mist.
And Joy…Joy seems to be becoming someone else entirely.
Coming February 14, 2023 in ebook, paperback, and hardcover
