Hooray for Kit Campbell! Her latest book, HALLOWED HILL (Turtleduck Press, October 1, 2022), and her first release in six years, is the perfect spooky story to read this spooky season. HALLOWED HILL follows 16-year-old Martie Torsney as she arrives at a remote boarding school, to which she received a surprise scholarship after the deaths of her parents. If you like your Gothic horror with ghosts and mystery, this is the story for you!
Maybe you should look a gift horse in the mouth.
After the sudden loss of her parents, 16-year-old Martie Torsney receives a surprise scholarship from a prestigious boarding school. This is the opportunity she needs to leave the heartbreak and echoes of her parents behind. If Martie excels at Greyson Academy, she’ll be set.
But all is not well at Greyson. Scholarship students are very rare, and none has ever completed their time at Greyson. And, now, someone wants Martie gone, too. Her things are moved, cryptic messages are left, and the school is vandalized in her name. But is it the living trying to scare her away–or the dead?
It is a little-known fact that Kit Campbell was raised in the wild by a marauding gang of octopuses. It wasn’t until she was 25 that she was discovered by a traveling National Geographic scientist and brought back to civilization. This is sometimes apparent in the way that she attempts to escape through tubes when startled.
Her transition to normalcy has been slow, but scientists predict that she will have mastered basics such as fork use sometime in the next year. More complex skills, such as proper grocery store etiquette, may be forever outside her reach. Visit the author at kitcampbellbooks.com and follow her on Twitter and Pinterest.
