Dawn Kurtagich (hello, that's me!) is a writer of creepy, spooky and psychologically sinister YA fiction, where girls may descend into madness, boys may see monsters in men, and grown-ups may have something to hide. Her debut YA novel, The Dead House, is forthcoming from Orion/Indigo (UK) and Little, Brown Books for Young Readers (US) in 2015.
"WHAT AN EVIL AND ORIGINAL STORY. YOU CAN'T STOP READING KAITLYN'S DIARY. BUT IS SHE REAL? IT'S A MYSTERY INSIDE A MYSTERY--AND THE SHOCKS KEEP COMING. SCARY STUFF!"
--- R.L. STINE, BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE GOOSEBUMPS AND FEAR STREET SERIES
You can find The Dead House over on Goodreads, and there is a board for The Dead House on my Pinterest. I'd love it if you connected with me on twitter or Facebook or goodreads or youtube, or all of them! Or you can pre-order it here:
