A darkly atmospheric paranormal thriller for young adults,dripping with secrets and mystery, new for 2022
Ginny Myers Sain enjoys creating dark, tangled, mysterious stories that exist in the in-between spaces where magic feels most possible. She especially loves writing for young adult readers because those years between childhood and adulthood are full of so much possibility...and so many big fears and questions. Ginny currently lives in Tulsa, Oklahoma, with her teenage son and a very cowardly doberman named Shipley. When she's not working in the theatre or writing, you're likely to find her listening to true crime podcasts, taking pictures of alligators, eating tacos, or planning a trip to Walt Disney World.
