THE RAVEN'S TALE - Release Day!

IT'S HERE!!!!

The Raven's Tale is officially out in the world in both hardcover and ebook formats! The novel explores how a troubled yet brilliant teenage boy transformed into the legendary Edgar Allan Poe.💀

Huge thanks to my team at Amulet Books/Abrams, including my highly talented editor, Maggie Lehrman, as well as my literary agent, Barbara Poelle!
