Hi Rose - thanks for reading the Suburban Strange books, and thanks for getting in touch!

You're right - there are some significant questions left unanswered at the end of Pull Down the Night, and some tantalizing hints about future events. I did that on purpose because I have a strong sense of the story continuing, and I would love to continue writing in the Suburban Strange universe.

However... publishing is a business as much as it is a creative enterprise (as I'm sure you know), and as of now, I'm not sure whether the publisher has an interest in additional Suburban Strange titles. There are any number of reasons for that, and who knows, their interest may change at any time. But for now I have been focusing on other writing projects, which I hope will see the light of day before too much longer.

I know that is not a very satisfying answer. Just know this: I am by no means finished writing stories, and I have a great respect for you as a reader. I certainly wouldn't leave a story unfinished if it were up to me. Hopefully I will have something else to whet your appetite sooner than later.

All best,
Nathan(less)

That puts a target on them, however, and they find themselves pursued, abducted, freed, aided, and betrayed by a number of mysterious people - some of whom many have been around for several thousand years - whose motivations aren't always clear. Hoping to finish this one this fall. (Not a part of the Suburban Strange series.)(less)

It’s a commonplace to marvel at the genius that came out of a single family called Brontë. The closest comparisons I can make – the Brownings and the Shelleys – are spouses, not siblings. Whatever was in the water at the Brontës did them well (before ...more
