The Haunted States of America is Finally Here!

The anthology of spooky stories written by SCBWI members goes on sale July 9.


Made in collaboration with the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) and illustrated by Solomon Hughes, The Haunted States of America is available for pre-order now! 

Every state has an urban legend that evokes fear and curiosity in equal parts, and our members have chronicled these logic-defying horrors in The Haunted States of America anthology. From the Jersey Devil to La Llorona, each story introduces a chill-inducing, stomach-churning monster, spectre, or poltergeist certain to keep you up at night. A broad collection of authors - from seasoned veterans to first timers making a fright-tastic debut - have united to unearth the scariest lore from each state in the US, as well as D.C. and Puerto Rico. Make sure to strap in for this spooky cross-country tour, but be extra careful not to let any of these terrors follow you home.

Featuring stories from Ellen Hopkins, Rae Rose, Daniel Barlekamp, Aixa Perez- Prado, Paul Lubaczewski, Janet Fox, and many more. Get your copy HERE.
