Catholic. Writer. Lay Dominican. I write books about gods & death & girls with knives. Latest: ENDLESS WATER, STARLESS SKY.

Goodreads policies: I do read messages. I seldom friend people. I never comment on reviews of my own work.

New Book: DESIRES AND DREAMS AND POWERS

I have a new book out! No, it’s not another novel; it’s a self-published anthology of my twenty best short stories. It features: eldritch mermaids, murderous unicorns, marriages to Death, faeries in World War I, gods of various kinds, a captive star, and three stories from the world of CRIMSON BOUND.









You can buy it as a paperback from Amazon or as an ebook from multiple vendors.

“Where you go, I shall go; where you die, I shall die, and there will I be buried.”
Rosamund Hodge, Cruel Beauty

“They said that love was terrifying and tender, wild and sweet, and none of it made any sense.
But now I knew that every mad word was true.”
Rosamund Hodge, Cruel Beauty

“You deserve all that and more. It made me happy to see you suffer. I would do it all over again if I could.' I realized I was shaking as the words tumbled out of me. 'I would do it again and again. Every night I would torment you and laugh. Do you understand? You are never safe with me.' I drew a shuddering breath, trying to will away the sting of tears.

He opened his eyes and stared up at me as if I were the door out of Arcadia and back to the true sky. 'That's what makes you my favorite.' He reached up and wiped a tear off my cheek with his thumb. 'Every wicked bit of you.”
Rosamund Hodge, Cruel Beauty
