Traditionally Gothic tales from truly unique points of view: trans, non-binary, and LGBTQ+ characters, people suffering from PTSD and other mental health conditions… and best of all, $1 of every purchase goes to the ACLU! Pre-order your copy in hardcover or paperback.
“1986 is the year everything blew apart …”
Twelve-year-old tomboy Cassie lives a pretty boring life in small-town Black Creek, Arkansas, until her mom and dad divorce, throwing her into poverty and shattering her sheltered life.
Then the rich, elderly Henson sisters take pity on her, taking her under their wings and into the church. Except the handsome, charming new preacher has something strange going on in his shed.
When Cassie starts snooping around his property looking for her lost dog, she discovers something so awful, no one will believe her – and that may put her own life in danger.
The Devil in Black Creek is available in both print and e-book formats.
