If you enjoyed Smoke over Owl Creek, you're going to love the sequel!

Caren Hahn

Caren Hahn grew up in a tiny logging community with more than its fair share of tragedy and violent crime, giving her early exposure to the dark side of small town life. She writes relationship dramas featuring deeply empathetic characters who are exquisitely flawed—the stuff of great book group discussions.

She is the author of the Owl Creek Mysteries, the political fantasy Wallkeeper trilogy, and Charmed: Tales from Quarantine & Other Short Fiction. Her richly layered plots and can’t-put-it-down conclusions give readers an emotionally resonant experience, while having some fun along the way.

Caren is blessed to live in the most beautiful place on earth (i.e. the Pacific Northwest) with her husband and six children.
