1986 is the year everything blew apart …"
Twelve-year-old tomboy Cassie lives a pretty boring life in small-town Black Creek, Arkansas, until her mom and dad divorce, throwing her into poverty and shattering her sheltered life. Then the rich, elderly Henson sisters take pity on her, taking her under their wings and into the church. Except the handsome, charming new preacher has something strange going on in his shed.
When Cassie starts snooping around his property looking for her lost dog, she discovers something so awful, no one will believe her – and that may put her own life in danger.
D.R. Bartlette is a Southern author who writes smart, dark fiction. A nerdy weirdo who hung out in libraries for fun, she discovered horror at an inappropriately early age, and she says her mind has been twisted ever since. She wrote her first short horror story in eighth grade. Since then, she’s written dozens of short stories, articles, and essays from topics ranging from school lunches to the study of human decomposition.
Reviewers have called The Devil in Black Creek "one of the most well written stories they have read this year" “brilliant, creepy, and totally trendy" and "a macabre and riveting thriller."
She lives and writes in her hometown of Fayetteville, Arkansas, where she still hangs out at the library for fun.
After her presentation books will be available for sale and signing.
