These are my books. There are many like them, but these ones are mine.

The Bone Witch series

The Bone Witch

When Tea accidentally resurrects her brother from the dead, she learns she is different from the other witches in her family. Her gift for necromancy means that she’s a bone witch, a title that makes her feared and ostracized by her community. But Tea finds solace and guidance with an older, wiser bone witch, who takes Tea and her brother to another land for training.

In her new home, Tea puts all her energy into becoming an asha — one who can wield elemental magic. But dark forces are approaching quickly, and in the face of danger, Tea will have to overcome her obstacles…and make a powerful choice

The Bone Witch series

The Heart Forger

In The Bone Witch, Tea mastered resurrection―now she’s after revenge…

No one knows death like Tea. A bone witch who can resurrect the dead, she has the power to take life…and return it. And she is done with her self-imposed exile. Her heart is set on vengeance, and she now possesses all she needs to command the mighty daeva. With the help of these terrifying beasts, she can finally enact revenge against the royals who wronged her―and took the life of her one true love.

But there are those who plot against her, those who would use Tea’s dark power for their own nefarious ends. Because you can’t kill someone who can never die…

War is brewing among the kingdoms, and when dark magic is at play, no one is safe.

 The Girl from the Well series

The Girl from the Well

There is a terrible contorting, in the way the figure moves. It does not crawl. It does not speak. There is only a dreadful, singular purpose in the manner its fingers and feet scuttle closer, spread from its body like a human spider, though I am neither human nor spider.

A dead girl walks the quiet streets of Applegate, leaving mangled bodies of child murderers in her wake. But when a boy with strange tattoos moves into the neighborhood, so, she realizes, does something else.

The Girl from the Well series

The Suffering

Some people keep dangerous hobbies; skydiving and driving at monster truck rallies and glacier surfing. Me? I cast my soul into the churning waters of potential damnation and wait for a bite.

It’s been two years since Tark Halloway’s nightmare ended. Free from the evil spirit that haunted him all his life, he now aids the ghostly Okiku and avenges the souls of innocent children by hunting down their murderers. But when an old friend disappears in Japan’s infamous ‘suicide forest’, both discover a strange village inside Aokigahara, where strange things lie waiting.

Kapre: A Love Story

This is the tale of Kapre, who lived in ancient trees tangled in shadow. Massive, stubbed fingers the color of faded coffee, scrabbling at tree trunk and bark for sustenance. Irises the color of twin moons, mouth the redness of withered santan. He shinnied up mountains in the heat of day, made nests of dried bones and rain at night. He could see himself in the twisted gnarl of branches, found comfort in the rigidness of bamboo. Nestled in the thickness of wood, Kapre could pretend friendship with plants and soil. Birds found homes within the snarls of his beard. Bees sought honey in the yellows of his eyes.

The House

And if anything else moves within; if anything else steps into the lonely rooms and disturbs the layers of dust that sweep the bare floors and decorate the empty mantelpiece; if anything runs light fingers across the wooden bed frames and touch the rotting mattresses without hands; if anything else knows memory in that strange, abandoned manor, it keeps its counsel in the shadows while the sun shines through the broken windows. The world outside is not its to take, and so it retreats; grateful for the darkness, but at times curious of the light.

Juan Perez’s Corpse

In time, the procession was over. Family and friends filed past the unhappy widow, offering condolences. The cemetery emptied, and underneath the freshly covered grave Juan reposed, ostensibly to continue his journey into the afterlife. 

At exactly 7:00 am at the Perez household, on a bright Wednesday morning, as he always did on a weekday, Juan Perez came down to breakfast.

Ho-we

Gary was still having some trouble attaching the nose to his face. I wasn’t sure if offering to get him some Mighty Bond was a polite or rude thing to do, but after a minute or so of pressing it against the hole under his eyes, Gary slowly took his hand away, and the nose remained in place. I breathed a sigh of relief, and watched as Gary began to pick at his plate. Mother made sure that none of the meat she served him was bloody enough to make a big mess, but I could smell how raw it was even from where I sat.

The Shadowglass

I have always known darkness.

It has always been my friend. It has always been my enemy. Some days it is a mist over my eyes, leaving me blind to what should be so obvious… but some days I wipe that fog away, and realize I see more clearly in its aftermath than I ever had before it.

The darkness has always been inside me, I think, long before I raised my brother from the dead. My silver heartsglass merely gave it a mouth, made it realize that it too, can hunger….

[manuscript codename: 'magic']

The firebird chirped a warning, but the shades paid little heed. So it sighed – a resigned, I-really-did-warn-you-about-this-you-know sigh – and glowed. Its feathers, a variety of yellows and reds and oranges tipped with a subtle silver shimmer, flared. Its majestic tail fanned out like a vestal train, whipping at slow, concentrated intervals. Despite its bravado, it had a wide-eyed curiosity about it suggesting it had not been a firebird for very long and, if the shades had their way, would not be one for much longer.

The Never Tilting World

It was clearly the man’s fault I’d punched him in the face.

It was still his fault when I did it again, and when I did it a third time, and when I did it the next twenty-one times. I’d lost count after that – his fault too, because I’m the kind of woman who keeps score.
