Absolutely THRILLED to announce that special effects artist, Tyler Green, has created a sea monster mask-making kit that's inspired by MY monster: WINSTON, from UNMASKED! Preorder your kit here, and in October you can create your own sea creature.
Want to meet Tyler and me? Come see us at CT HorrorFest at the Naugatuck Convention Center on September 17th. Find us at the Monster Kidz Box booth!
UNMASKED has been out in the world for about two weeks. I'm incredibly thankful for all the love you've been showing my latest book. Please tag me in pics on social media - I LOVE seeing my book babies out in the wild!
Signed copies available from RJ Julia Booksellers (where my launch event will be held on October 22nd). Signed copies also available from Barnes and Noble in Westport, CT, and Books of Wonder in NYC.
THRILLED to announce that I will have a fourth book out from Amulet Books in Fall 2024! This one is a departure from the Fright Watch series, but just as (if not MORE) spooky!
Can't wait for you all to meet the Manning family! :-)
The lovely folks at Dreamscape Media have given me a sample from the UNMASKED audiobook! Check it out!

Also, make sure you check out my events page. I've got some cool festivals lined up, and I'm so excited to meet some of you in person. :-)
It's HERE! The beautiful cover for Fright Watch book 3: UNMASKED. I can't express how happy I am with the work that Jade Rector, Brann Garvey, Kelley McMorris and Dave Coulson did on this. Check out the summary below!
The third book in the spine-chilling Fright Watch series follows the local monster mask maker—and a mask that comes to life on Halloween night
Having suffered from anxiety attacks since she was eight years old, creating monsters has become a sort of therapy for Marion Jones: When she sculpts and paints, her fingers don’t tingle, the heaviness lifts from her chest, and she can actually breathe. So instead of grabbing pizza and milkshakes after school like most other kids in South Haven, Marion holes up in her room, working away on her monsters. And it’s paid off, because she’s just finished her first full-face mask: a gruesome sea monster she’s named Winston.
However, Halloween arrives with a Super Blue Blood Moon, and its powers somehow manage to bring Winston to life. To make matters worse, Marion’s crush, Tyler Dash, becomes the object of Winston’s possession as soon as he tries on the mask, turning him into a red-flannel and Converse high-top wearing Creature from Connecticut. Marion has no choice: She has to follow Tyler to the Halloween dance to try and stop him. Will she be able to figure out what’s happened to Tyler and stop the monster from wreaking further havoc on the school? Or has she made a real-life monster that’s here to stay?
Fright Watch 3: UNMASKED cover reveal coming soon! I will also be doing a THREE BOOK giveaway, so make sure you're following me on social media.
Hope you're staying happy and healthy, friends! :-)
Hi friends! With the holidays fast approaching, I decided to whip up a little gift: a bonus scene from The Stitchers. Only this time, you get to experience Goodie Lane from the Oldies' perspective. So sit back, relax, and enjoy your trip back to South Haven, 1964.
To read, all you have to do is sign up for my newsletter and download the story.
If you enjoy it, leave a comment below! Maybe these little bonus scenes will become my new holiday tradition. :-)
I hope you had a happy Halloween! I've been busy working on line edits for Fright Watch 3: UNMASKED, which is out next August(ish). This installment takes place ON Halloween - which was so fun to write! There is a dance, a crush, a possessed mask, and plenty of scares! UNMASKED will feature a new protagonist, monster-maker, Marion Jones, but don't worry - there are still plenty of shenanigans between Quinn and Mike. :-)
Hopefully I'll have cover art to share with you soon, so keep checking back.
I'm also hoping to have a holiday surprise for you featuring your favorite Oldies, so look out for that!
Until then, Happy November!
