"Something happens to you when you read this. You will be changed. It's. Just. That. Amazing." -Nancy Holder, NYTimes Best-selling Author of BUFFY: THE MAKING OF A SLAYER
                                                  ~
The DARK CAROUSEL series is a heart-stopping saga, a mix of the chill of American Horror Story and the fantastical elements of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children.

A dark presence is collecting girls, deep in the forest. Two girls have vanished, and now a third. Cassie and her friends desperately search the forest for their friend, who went missing on a hike. When they find vintage dolls hanging from strings on branches, they should have turned back.
But they didn't.
                                                 
The dolls lead to a crumbling mansion. The three friends find a macabre life-size dollhouse beneath the old mansion - and a portal into surreal worlds, all controlled by terrying beings. In the dollhouse, you must dance until your feet bleed, sit on the toy shelf if you're bad, and if you've been very bad, you are sent to the toy box - a pitch-dark cavern that contains beings beyond nightmares.
And now there is no escape.

From the author of the Amazon best-selling series, THE DARK CAROUSEL.

PARACOSM will transport you to ghostly worlds only glimpsed in nightmares.

Psychology Student, Zoe Cosgrove, arrives in the isolated West Virginian town of Bleath to study a strange phenomenon--a cluster of children who are experiencing paracosms (beliefs in imaginary worlds).

The mayor of Bleath provides Zoe with accommodation at the empty Wilmont house. It's not the friendly farmhouse Zoe was picturing. Worse, she begins to doubt her own sanity when the house starts transforming itself.

Late at night, scratching noises scrape along the staircase banister and inside the trinket box under her bed. And out in the wheat field below her bedroom window, ghostly figures wait . . . .

Is Zoe slipping into an imaginary world of her own? Or are the things she's experiencing terrifying real?

PARACOSM is a standalone novel. It is part of a wider world, having a deep connection to The Dark Carousel series.

"This book is great on playing with your mind.... and for the last 20% I literally could not put the thing down. And the ending - it was NOTHING like I was expecting" - E.Maynard

"A completely gripping and totally engrossing read from start to finish..." Brenda Telford

Once you've ventured into the underground dollhouse, the spirits there will never release you.

Cassie, Ethan and Lacey sought their missing friend, Aisha, in the deep of the forest. After being captured by the deadly trap of the dollhouse, Cassie finally fought her way to the surface. But she's beginning to question if any of them were truly rescued.

Back in 1920, a clairvoyant tells 14-year-old circus performer, Sparrow, that she is soon to die an unnatural death. With her grandfather spending the last of his circus fortunes on dark magic and with Mr. Baldcott chasing her for marriage, Sparrow doesn't know who to turn to. Then a circus train derailment in Copper Canyon that kills most of the people on board changes everything. Someone has blown up the tracks, someone who wanted desperately to get hold of the Book of the Mirrored Tree that Sparrow's grandfather was transporting.

In present day, Cassie travels to Copper Canyon to try to find the Book of the Mirrored Tree. Too late she discovers a chilling, devastating betrayal.

A shattering betrayal leaves Cassie beyond all light or hope. The betrayal signals a return to Balthazar's castle.

She's forced to wait out her sixteenth summer in Balthazar's terrifying, dank quarters beneath the castle, until he wakes from his long slumber and she is taken as his bride. Each day she is reminded of her fate, in full view of the sixty glass door cabinets where his teenage wives of centuries past are preserved. No bride lasts very long. Each day, she is told she is little more than a butterfly, soon to waste away inside a painted, wooden replica of herself.

Deep inside herself, she plots revenge against those who have taken everyone she loved away from her. And she'll never stop seeking a way to destroy the second book of The Mirrored Tree--the knowledge of which will give the castle dominion over all the universes.
