The Phantom of Linkshire Manor

First published in the gothic romance anthology Bound in Skin, “The Phantom of Linkshire Manor” is now available as a stand-alone story for the first time.

Anna Forrester, a young physician’s assistant, is summoned to care for James Rothwell, the handsome master of Linkshire Manor, after he is bedridden from an unusual illness. Anna agrees to stay in the house to oversee Mr. Rothwell’s recovery, but she soon finds that the master’s symptoms are only one of Linkshire’s many mysteries. There are cries and whispers heard at night, servants acting suspiciously, and rumors that the death of Mr. Rothwell’s wife might not have been the suicide it’s been claimed to be.

Inspired by classic gothic romances, this novella from New York Times-bestselling author Marissa Meyer weaves together a story of greed, betrayal, ambition… and love.

Note: While it is not available for sale on Amazon, Kindle readers can use the Smashwords store to purchase the book as a .mobi file that can be sent/downloaded to your Kindle reader or app.

Because You Love To Hate Me

Leave it to the heroes to save the world–villains just want to rule the world.

In this unique YA anthology, thirteen acclaimed, bestselling authors team up with thirteen influential BookTubers to reimagine fairy tales from the oft-misunderstood villains’ points of view. These fractured, unconventional spins on classics like “Medusa,” Sherlock Holmes, and “Jack and the Beanstalk” provide a behind-the-curtain look at villains’ acts of vengeance, defiance, and rage–and the pain, heartbreak, and sorrow that spurned them on. No fairy tale will ever seem quite the same again!

A Tyranny Of Petticoats

From an impressive sisterhood of YA writers comes an edge-of-your-seat anthology of historical fiction and fantasy featuring a diverse array of daring heroines.

Criss-cross America — on dogsleds and ships, stagecoaches and trains — from pirate ships off the coast of the Carolinas to the peace, love, and protests of 1960s Chicago. Join fifteen of today’s most talented writers of young adult literature on a thrill ride through history with American girls charting their own course. They are monsters and mediums, bodyguards and barkeeps, screenwriters and schoolteachers, heiresses and hobos. They’re making their own way in often-hostile lands, using every weapon in their arsenals, facing down murderers and marriage proposals. And they all have a story to tell. 

This anthology includes my short story “Gold in the Roots of the Grass,” a ghost story set during the Black Hills Gold Rush in Deadwood, South Dakota.
