Here is a teaser for my next book, expected to premiere next summer.
New York City, 1902. Imagine what it would be like to be nineteen years old, accused of killing your family, and committed to a lunatic asylum in the middle of a colossal potter’s field for the rest of your life? That’s the fate of Ruby Hunt in my next book, Hart of Madness.
The book opens with:
Hart Island is a small island located in the Long Island Sound,
off the coast of the Bronx, in New York City.
It has been a public mass burial ground,
a “potter’s field” for a million souls since 1869.
The crumbling remains of its buildings once served as:
a Union Civil War prison camp,
a tuberculosis sanatorium,
a boys’ reformatory and…
a woman’s lunatic asylum.
Publication details as they unfold.
