New from The Parliament House and writer Don Roff, Clare at Sixteen: Clare Bleecker Book One, available for pre-order now
The small town of Pickman Flats offers a bright sunny place filled with quaint shopping and wine tasting. But underneath the town’s inviting exterior lies a dark underbelly, a sinister element that lurks in the shadows. Clare is a devoted vegan who goes to Catholic high school, is fastidious in her manner, and also, well, a killer. The Other Clare takes over at the most inopportune of times. She tries to keep her inner beast at bay, but it’s hard when there are so many creeps around who help to unleash it. What secret lies hidden beneath Pickman Flats? And who is Clare really? If you want answers, well, there’s only one way to find out-even if it kills you. Available for pre-order in eBook format, with the paperback coming soon, you can guarantee your copy here.
