... was released one year ago.

Can you believe it? Yikes.


My story, set during Halloween, about a small town that loves the season and is hiding a secret family legacy, has been out in the wild for a year.

So, Happy Anniversary to my first published YA horror novel!

Yay. 🎃🎉

Although my little tale, about a group of four friends who get caught up in a creepy situation after waking an old evil in the woods, hasn't gotten much attention since it's release last October, I'm still incredibly proud of Quin's story.

I wrote this novel during NaNoWriMo several years ago, and revised it quite a few times before it was ready to start its Submission Adventure. When Otranto House contracted my strange book about girls and dolls, I was very excited. Not only is it a spooky tale, but it was my first attempt at telling a story via first-person narrative, journal entries, and letters.

This is a small post to celebrate that WALL OF DOLLS is still available. And I reckon that's a fantastic achievement. 😊

So, if you're interested in checking it out, here's the info:

For generations, the women of the Lucas family have lived in the small town of Whenall, Massachusetts, at Raven House. They make dolls that they call wardens to protect the townsfolk, a long tradition that some might think holds no power, but a tradition that Whenall enjoys all the same.

Quin is proud of her heritage, her cousin Beth, however, isn't interested in her position as the future family matriarch. The girls spend their time with their two closest friends, Henri and Al, with Beth always taking the lead, flirting with the boys and leading them into mischief.

One Halloween night, Al finds a Ouija board in the attic of Raven House, and Beth eagerly encourages them all to play with it, but Quin knows that these boards are not a game. Something was unleashed that Halloween night, and a year later, the girls will face the consequences. Can Quin stop them from being devoured by the evil force that spoke to them that night? The force that haunts the woods surrounding Whenall? With Henri by her side, she is sure as hell going to try...
