Kirsten McKenzie (kirstenmckenzieauthor) | 34 comments Hello all, after publishing two historical time slip novels, I've slipped into horror.

Painted by Kirsten McKenzie will be released at the end of June 2017.

If art can capture a soul, what happens when one of those souls escapes?

When art appraiser Anita Cassatt is sent to catalogue the extensive collection of reclusive artist Leo Kubin, it isn’t only the chilly atmosphere of the secluded house making her shiver.

Upon entering the house, Anita stands before a silent audience of portraits clustered on every wall. Every painted eye is watching her, including those of the unfinished portrait on the artist’s easel. A portrait with an eerie familiarity.

Kubin’s lawyer didn’t share the detailed instructions regarding the handling of the art, and Anita and her team start work in ignorance of the very instructions designed to keep them safe.

Disturbed, a man eases himself out of his portrait and stretches. Free at last from the confines of his canvas, he has no intention of ever returning. He has a painting to finish…

Thanks so much. My first horror. But I've loved writing it. My historical fiction background seems to continuously seep in though!

There in nothing wrong with that. I love things that make the story seem more realistic. It adds to the fright factor, IMO!

Loving your name on here. My middle name is Anne with an E. I say that every time I have to give someone my name. Too funny. Very Anne of Green Gables!
