Kaitlin Roe’s search for the truth
awakens a relentless killer.


Dying Scream landed in stores and online May 29th, with a brand new look. I hope you like the latest art as much as I do. I’m still so appreciative of the wonderful reception the book has received through the years, starting with national bestselling suspense author, Lisa Jackson, calling it “A twisted tale” and saying “I couldn’t put it down.” And a shout out, of course, to all the readers who have read and shared it with others. If you haven’t read it yet, I hope you’ll have a chance to enjoy it soon. Ready to enjoy an excerpt?
