Join Pelham Parkway-Van Nest and Wakefield Libraries on Thursday, October 20 at 4 PM in a discussion with YA author, Kat Ellis, author of “Harrow Lake” and “Burden Falls“.
Harrow Lake Synopsis:
Lola Nox is the daughter of a celebrated horror filmmaker–she thinks nothing can scare her. But when her father is brutally attacked in their New York apartment, she’s quickly packed off to live with a grandmother she’s never met in Harrow Lake, the eerie town where her father’s most iconic horror movie was shot. The locals are weirdly obsessed with the film that put their town on the map–and there are strange disappearances, which the police seem determined to explain away.
And there’s someone–or something–stalking her every move.
The more Lola discovers about the town, the more terrifying it becomes– because Lola’s got secrets of her own. And if she can’t find a way out of Harrow Lake, they might just be the death of her.
Burden Falls Synopsis:
The town of Burden Falls drips with superstition, from rumors of its cursed waterfall to Dead-Eyed Sadie, the disturbing specter who haunts it. Ava Thorn grew up right beside the falls, and since a horrific accident killed her parents a year ago, she’s been plagued by nightmares in which Sadie comes calling–nightmares so chilling, Ava feels as if she’ll never wake up. But when someone close to Ava is brutally murdered and she’s the primary suspect, she begins to wonder if the stories might be more than legends–and if the ghost haunting her dreams might be terrifyingly real. Whatever secrets Burden Falls is hiding, there’s a killer on the loose . . . with a vendetta against the Thorns.
Kat Ellis is the author of creepy and thrilling young adult novels, including Burden Falls and Harrow Lake. When she is not writing, Kat can usually be found watching horror movies or exploring ruins and cemeteries near her home in North Wales.
