Davonna Juroe loves ghost stories…as long as they’re not too scary. She tends toward an overactive imagination and startles easily, making her wonder why she’s writing ghostly tales.

When she’s not playing her harp and writing spooky novels, she’s exploring old buildings or daydreaming about her next 80s-inspired Halloween costume.

Besides reading and writing full-time, she can also be found taking photos of all things whimsical and fantasy-inspired in parks throughout the Pacific Northwest. Davonna currently lives in Seattle, Washington, home of the famous and magical Troll Bridge.

Winterbay Abbey is Davonna’s third book. She is also the author of the Amazon-bestselling young adult novel Scarlette, a dark retelling of "Little Red Riding Hoo

“That's what I love about reading: one tiny thing will interest you in a book, and that tiny thing will lead you to another book, and another bit there will lead you onto a third book. It's geometrically progressive - all with no end in sight, and for no other reason than sheer enjoyment.”

David, I DID see that that event was happening next month in Portland! There was a Kickstarter campaign for something in regards to the convention, if I remember correctly, not too long ago. Are you going? I love Lovecraft's concepts, stories, and ideas. However, sometimes the prose can get a little bogged down. ;) I'm sure you know what I mean. My favorite of his stories is THE NAMELESS CITY. Have you read that one? Love it!
