I write things. Also, I’m actually smiling in that picture. That’s my smile. Shut up.


Revelator is a thing of beauty, brutal in the vein of Cormac McCarthy, a novel in the Southern Gothic tradition that is fresh and deeply disturbing. ”
New York Times

Finalist for the Dragon Award and the Locus Award.

A dark, gripping tale of a 1930’s family in the remote hills of the Smoky Mountains, their secret religion, and the daughter who turns her back on their mysterious god.

“An eerie and otherworldly tale laced with moonshine, Revelator questions the bonds of kin and challenges the ideas of power and divinity. A darkly intoxicating chiller.”–Booklist

“Completely banana pants.”–Book Riot
