Time passes, sins forgotten.
The bodies of the victims long since rotten.
Trapped within the essence of the Headless Horseman by the guilt of slaughtering her best friend, Ireland Crane follows the father of science fiction, HG Wells, in search of freedom from the curse that binds her. Instead, she discovers even he has a hidden agenda. A dark, relentless passion to be reunited with the woman he loves has driven him to manipulate time and a murderous Horseman.
Yet heed my warning, as the Raven flies,
The Hessian will come … and you will die.
All that prevents Ireland from abandoning Wells’ twisted pursuit, or introducing him to her sword, are the undead witches haunting her. Begging for freedom from a vile succubus, the ghoulish coven leads Ireland and her crew on a journey through Salem’s sordid past. There, they learn there is more to Nathaniel Hawthorne’s history than a scarlet letter, and the secret they’ve uncovered seeks to destroy them all.
Do you like the spotlight or lurking in the shadows?
Yes. Both. I have moments where I like to shine, then I am more than happy to slink back into the shadows.
How many books are in your TRB pile?
So many. For real. It’s insane. It grows like the mountain of laundry I can never seem to get caught up on.
What is next on your to read list?
I am eagerly awaiting the releases of Winter by Marissa Meyer and Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard. In the meantime I just started a novella by Aveyard, Queen Song.
What one item would you eat for the rest of your life?
What is the last thing you bought?
My gown for the Once Upon a Book Author Signing and Happily Ever After Ball that I am hosting in Frankenmuth Michigan August 12-13 2016! I cannot wait!
When people that don’t know me shorten my name to “Stace” I don’t know why, but it drives me insane. Also, when people stand at intersections collecting money for charity. What if I already donated and I’m just driving back by? Where do I look? Do I make eye contact and wave? NO! Because then they come over to the car. It’s too stressful. Just talking about it, I need to lay down.
Pizza or Pasta?
What is something people would be surprised to know about you?
I can touch my tongue to my nose. Like a giraffe. It’s gross.
If you had 24 hours alone how would you spend it?
Reading, writing, and working out. Not necessarily in that order.
If you could meet one person who has died who would you choose?
Edgar Allen Poe, I want to know if he’s as twisted in person as his writing.
What do you do in your free time?
Free time? What’s that? But what I do have I spend with my kiddos!
Can you share a little about the current title you are working on?
It’s super top secret, but it will involve another well-known villain!
