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. 

THE DEAD HOUSE can be pre-ordered on Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.com and The Book Depository (which has free shipping worldwide).
