Rumer Haven is probably the most social recluse you could ever meet. When she’s not babbling her fool head off among friends and family, she’s pacified with a good story that she’s reading, writing, or revising—or binge-watching something on Netflix. Hailing from Chicago, she presently lives in London with her husband and probably a ghost or two. Rumer has always had a penchant for the past and paranormal, which inspires her writing to explore dimensions of time, love, and the soul. Her novel What the Clocks Know won 1st Place in General Fiction for the 2017 Red City Review Book Awards

My four-star rating reflects how I generally felt when reading this book, while others' one-star reviews express what I ultimately thought about it. An enjoyable experience of language and thought but disappointing development. Trumped by Hitchcock's ...more

“An idea, like a ghost, must be spoken to a little before it will explain itself.”
Charles Dickens

Gregory Maguire
“The person who would become a lifelong reader should stumble upon very rich stuff first, early, and often. It lived within, a most agreeable kind of haunting.”
Gregory Maguire

Donna Tartt
“There are such things as ghosts. People everywhere have always known that. And we believe in them every bit as much as Homer did. Only now, we call them by different names. Memory. The unconscious.”
