“Like Girl, Interrupted and ‘The Yellow Wallpaper’, The Bone Cutters is one woman’s dark and surreal experience with a madness that is not necessarily her own.”
My debut book, The Bone Cutters, is set for release on Sept. 1, 2019 through Eraserhead Press. It’s a bizarro horror novella about the hell of mental illness, the evil hands of drug addiction, and the horror of psych. hospitals.
Are you anxious, suicidal, have some anger issues you need to work on, or maybe you have a drug addiction you need to kick? No worries. Once you’ve been checked into this psychiatric hospital, you’ll never be the same. Come, have a visit; stay as long as we need you. If you’re fresh, you’re in for one Hell of a ride once you meet The Bone Cutters.
Dory wakes up in the padded room of a psychiatric hospital with no recollection of how she wound up there. She soon finds out she’s been Blue-Papered–involuntarily committed. When she is sent to the wrong counseling group, she finds a whole new group of drug addicts that make her skin crawl. By the end of that first meeting, she is running scared, afraid of being “dusted”, though the psych. hospital staff doesn’t believe a word she says; after all, she’s delusional–at least that’s what “they” tell her. They end up sending her to that same counseling group every day, though Dory knows that all those junkies want is what’s inside of her–she’s fresh, and she holds the ultimate high.

Hello and good morning to my few followers, return visitors, and any & all new comers. I hope today finds you all happy and doing well.
I’ve started this page due to some exciting news. Back on August 10th, my novella The Bone Cutters (formerly titled Chiseled High) was accepted for publication by Eraserhead Press “publisher of bizarro fiction since 1999”, out of Portland Oregon. Due to working on a title change for the book, I’d held off on announcing this news, but now that the title has been decided on, I’m ready to shout out from the tallest mountain:
I’ve got a fucking book coming out!!!
This is my first book publication, which makes it all that much more exciting for me. After talking to Rose O’Keefe, Eraserhead Press owner and head editor, two days ago I’ve been so pumped that I feel like a coke-head on the ultimate high. But with that feeling comes an overwhelming sense of–now the real work begins.
Promoting a book is tricky and time consuming. With my two other novels half written and new ideas screaming in my head to get out and onto the page, I know I will struggle to balance book-promotion-time with writing-time, but that’s the nature of the beast for an author. And as a stay-at-home-mom of a young son, and having no childcare, that will be another mountain to climb. But I’m a fucking mountain-goat-Capricorn and climbing to the highest heights is one of my strongest qualities. (Rising at 4 AM before the sun sure does help my cause.)
What is also rewarding for me is that back in 2014 I had attended my first ever World Horror Convention (Now Stokercon) in Portland, Oregon, and it was Eraserhead Press that really intrigued me. After all, their company motto is: “Take what you do seriously, but never take yourself too seriously”, and this is something I try very hard to live by. I came away from that convention picturing myself as an Eraserhead press author. And here I am . . .
I am one of six of Eraserhead Press’s New Bizarro Authors for 2019, and I couldn’t be any happier.
What you imagine and visualize can and does become reality.
I end this post with a little teaser for my upcoming novella The Bone Cutters.
