The Grief Nurse (2023)
Angie Spoto
"A conceptually-explosive and vividly-rendered story that offers skewering insights into memory, grief, and desire. An anthem for our times."
The Toll House (2022)
Carly Reagon
"A beautifully written tale of hauntings, grief, and the stories folded in old houses. Carly Reagon is one to watch."

C J Tudor
"WOW WOW WOW! CJ Tudor’s follow-up to her impressive debut is superbly chilling and delightfully creepy. Smartly written and brilliantly plotted, here is a book that crawls under your skin and hooks on until you reach that jaw-dropping ending."
