Capturing the Devil is out TODAY!!!!

good morning and welcome to the world, little book. the last five years of writing these stories and getting to know these characters have been the best, but now it’s time for me to say goodbye and send Thomas and Audrey Rose off.

i absolutely adore this conclusion–it ends where it all began for me. what you thought you knew about a killer in Stalking Jack the Ripper might just be another mystery waiting to be solved. i hope you’ve loved the hints i’ve dropped along the way…

Stalking Jack the Ripper intros the world and players.

Hunting Prince Dracula finds them in a castle much like Holmes’ Murder Hotel.

Escaping From Houdini was an emotional journey into Hell.

And now Audrey Rose and Thomas are finally Capturing the Devil they’ve been hunting. Or, at least they’re trying to.

as you join me in solving the final Stalking Jack the Ripper mystery, please remember one thing:

Beyond life, beyond death, my love for thee is eternal, dear reader.

thank you, thank you, thank you for going on another adventure with me.

The secret is out! KINGDOM OF THE WICKED, the first book in my new series, is hitting shelves next fall!

27F2C00D-4F27-42E6-B637-DAA36A942DAE

I’ve been keeping this secret all year, and now that the publisher’s marketplace announcement has finally arrived, I’m SO NERVOUS. But also (almost) beyond comprehension-level excited and hope you are, too!

KINGDOM OF THE WICKED, the first book in my new series, is a YA historical fantasy told in dual POV that’s really a murder mystery at heart.

I can’t say much more for now, but it features some of my very favorite things as a reader; enemies to lovers, antiheroes, mystery, dark magic, and murder. I’m especially excited about the setting—19thcentury Sicily—which is enchanting even without casting any spells! (My family is Sicilian, so it’s extra special and personal.)

I honestly can’t wait for you to meet Emelia and Wrath next fall!

H U G E thank you to my agent Barbara Poelle, my editor Jenny Bak, James Patterson, and the whole team at JIMMY Patterson books. I’ve dreamed of writing this story for so many years and am grateful I get to share it with you.

More details will be coming in the following months, but that’s all I can share now. I hope, hope, hope you’re as excited as I am!

Scroll down for a sneak preview of my secret Pinterest board! It’s up on GoodReads, so please add it to your lists if you’d like! (I’d definitely appreciate it!)

the US preorder prizes are:

  1. An alternate cover/dust jacket for CAPTURING THE DEVIL. this cover features a black background and glittering gold/champagne foiled dress. It matches the other books in the series with the dark background and I absolutely LOVE how shimmery Audrey Rose’s dress is in real life!
  2. A 6” x 9” double-sided postcard featuring original color artwork of a wedding scene with Audrey Rose Wadsworth and Thomas Cresswell by Gabriella Bujdosó! i loved working with Gabi on this and couldn’t be happier with how she NAILED the dress, the details in Thomas’s suit, and entire scene. one side features Cressworth in their wedding best, and the other features Thomas’s tattoo.

i hope you’re as excited as i am, i’ve been dreaming of alternate covers and more tie-in artwork for SO long and am so blissfully happy with the final prizes for this series!
