Read full description of the books Harlan County Horrors:In the black heart of coal country, malevolent spirits and unearthly creatures slip from the shadows into the minds and hearts of men. Young women, twisted by pain, call for love and revenge by the light of the moon. A dead dog by the side of the road is more than it seems. In Harlan County, Kentucky, the supernatural and the mundane mingle in the depths of the earth, filling the mines with powerful forces that draw people down and corrupt from within.

Read information about the authorI started writing as soon as I could hold a crayon. A southern gothic fiction writer for adults and teens, my works reflect a love of literature and music flavored by the darkness and magic residing in the Appalachian foothills.
Midnight, After Midnight, Midnight's Children, Midnight's Heir, Memories of Midnight, and Promise of Midnight are all books in my southern gothic "Harlan Vampires Series" - or HVS (or "Hillbilly Vampires") as it's called in places around the 'net and on some college campuses.
I've also started a Young Adult series set in the HVS universe. The first story is Fragile Things.
As well as a writer, I am a blogger for Apex Publications, and an independent book reviewer and editor. I edited the Harlan County Horrors anthology and contributed a short stories to the Aegri Somnia and the Enter at Your Own Risk anthologies.
My first novel, Midnight, is currently available from Apex Book Company.
My stories take place in my own version of the gothic hinterlands of Harlan County. The great beauty of Harlan County contrasts sharply with abject, inherent strife. Its mountains are scarred by mining, and its people are quite often insular and distrustful. This landscape provides the backdrop for my writing and is often a character in its own right.
I lived four years in the black heart of Harlan County, a place mired in coal, ash, and blood, a land of coal seams and rhythmic discord that breed amity and illusion, all of which birthed the Harlan Vampire stories. I am known to dance with fairies and ghosts beneath full moons and wade barefoot in creeks and wild rivers.
I have lived away from the mountains and lived deep in the mountains but currently live in Central Kentucky with my lifepartner and his cat. I am the mother of two young men and an avid supporter of kidney disease awareness.
The mountains, their culture, their superstitions, their particular magics, will always be in my blood.(less)
