Texas Gothic

Amy Goodnight’s family is far from normal. She comes from a line of witches, but tries her best to stay far outside the family business. Her summer gig? Ranch-sitting for her aunt with her wacky but beautiful sister. Only the Goodnight Ranch is even less normal than it normally is. Bodies are being discovered, a ghost is on the prowl, and everywhere she turns, the hot neighbor cowboy is in her face.

The Splendor Falls

Can love last beyond the grave?

Sylvie Davis is a ballerina who can’t dance. A broken leg ended her career, but Sylvie’s pain runs deeper. What broke her heart was her father’s death, and what’s breaking her spirit is her mother’s remarriage—a union that’s only driven an even deeper wedge into their already tenuous relationship.

Uprooting her from her Manhattan apartment and shipping her to Alabama is her mother’s solution for Sylvie’s unhappiness. Her father’s cousin is restoring a family home in a town rich with her family’s history. And that’s where things start to get shady. As it turns out, her family has a lot more history than Sylvie ever knew. More unnerving, though, are the two guys that she can’t stop thinking about. Shawn Maddox, the resident golden boy, seems to be perfect in every way. But Rhys—a handsome, mysterious foreign guest of her cousin’s—has a hold on her that she doesn’t quite understand.

Then she starts seeing things. Sylvie’s lost nearly everything—is she starting to lose her mind as well

Prom Dates from Hell

Maggie Quinn, Girl reporter. Honors student, newspaper staffer, yearbook photographer. Six weeks from graduation and all she wants to do is get out of Avalon High in one piece. Fate seems to have different plans for her.

High school may be a natural breeding ground for evil, but the scent of fire and brimstone is still a little out of the ordinary. It’s the distinct smell of sulfur that makes Maggie suspect that something’s a bit off. And when real Twilight Zone stuff starts happening to the school’s ruling clique—the athletic elite and the head cheerleader and her minions, all of whom happen to be named Jessica—Maggie realizes it’s up to her to get in touch with her inner Nancy Drew and ferret out who unleashed the ancient evil before all hell breaks loose.

Maggie has always suspected that prom is the work of the devil, but it looks like her attendance will be mandatory. Sometimes a girl’s got to do some pretty undesirable things if she wants to save her town from soul-crushing demons from hell and the cheerleading squad.

Hell Week

Maggie Quinn is determined to make her mark as a journalist. The only problem? The Ranger Report does not take freshmen on staff.

Rules are rules. But when has that ever stopped Maggie?

After facing hellfire, infiltrating sorority rush should be easy. It’s no Woodward and Bernstein, but going undercover as the Phantom Pledge will allow her to write her exposé. Then she can make a stealth exit before initiation. But when she finds a group of girls who are after way more than “sisterhood,” all her instincts say there’s something rotten on Greek Row. And when Hell Week rolls around, there may be no turning back.

If there is such a thing as a sorority from hell, you can bet that Maggie Quinn will be the one to stumble into it.

Highway to Hell

Maggie Quinn was expecting to find plenty of trouble with Lisa over Spring Break. Give a girl a bikini, a beachfront hotel, and an absent boyfriend, and it’s as good as a road map to the dark side. But Maggie doesn’t have to go looking for trouble. Trouble has started looking for her. One dead cow and a punctured gas tank later, she and Lisa are stuck in
Dulcina, Texas—a town so small that it has an owner. And lately life in this small town hasn’t been all that peaceful. An eerie predator is stalking the ranchland.

Everyone in town has a theory, but not even Maggie’s psychic mojo can provide any answers. And the longer the girls are stranded, the more obvious it becomes that something is seriously wrong. Only no one—not even Maggie’s closest ally—wants to admit that they could have been forced on a detour down the highway to hell.

Brimstone

Slinking down the streets, hiding in the shadows, always lurking just out of sight, evil follows Maggie Quinn. It’s no ordinary, everyday evil, either—it’s Evil with a capital E, and whatever’s behind it, it clearly wants Maggie.

But Maggie isn’t the type of girl to go down without a fight. She has a few powerful tricks up her sleeve, not to mention a best friend who’s a witch, and she’s declaring open season on demons.

Brimstone is the compilation of Prom Dates from Hell and Hell Week.

  1. i love your books so much my favorite was the Prom Dates from hell series please make another of those like Hell Spirit.I loved your books!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. HI, I just wated to say i love your books. my two favs are The Splender Falls and Texas Gothic. Are you planning on writing any more books like that?

    You are such an amazing writer!

  3. have you ever thought about a sequel to the splendor falls or maybe a prequel about Hannah Davis and her suitors

  4. Would you mind sharing strategies with me. I’m a bit of a writer in training, hoping to publish books in the near future and it would be amazing if you could help. I really admire the way you write because you don’t have any Mary-Sue characters as most stories do (and to be honest I think we all had that one school “Jessica”). :)

    • Samantha, you’re a doll. If you go to the blog and click on the tag “writing” or “writing tips” it should pull up the previous posts I’ve made on craft, writing, all that. But you have definitely reminded me that it’s been too long since I’ve written one of those. I will do one soon! (I love to write about writing.)

      PS Yes. We all had at least one “Jessica” at our school, not matter what her name was/is.

  5. Hi, are you ever going to do a sequel or prequel to “the splendour falls” because I love that book and can not stop re-reading it

    • Hi Hannah! Thank you so much! I’m glad you enjoyed TSF so much. :-) To answer your question… Sort of, maybe. I have a lot of other things in the works first, and I think you’ll enjoy them if you like “Splendor.” Until I (maybe) write what happens to Sylvie next, everyone is free to imagine for themselves, and that’s kind of fun, too. :)

  6. I am loving your books! I never really used to be into reading that much until I started reading your books and im thoroughly enjoying it! My favourite was The Splendor Falls! Busy on Brimstone ♡ im hoping that im not reading them in the wromg order? Because im going to read Highway to Hell next. Please let me know! Please keep writing, you’re an amazing (and my favourite) author! ♡ xx

    • Hi Frances! You are awesome for stopping by to leave a comment. I love to hear that someone has connected with books. And you are reading them in the right order. It goes Prom Dates from Hell, Hell week (which are collected in Brimstone) and then Highway to Hell.

      Absolutely I will keep writing. I’m busy on the next book right now!

  7. Hi Rosemary! I love your books. Your writing style is how I imagine mine would be if I could ever get passed the idea stage that is. Very important question now: Is there any more books with the Goodnight’s planned for the future??? I just love those crazy Goodnight’s! I’m about to start The Splendor Falls and can’t wait to read it. Thank you for telling us your brilliant stories and for writing some amazing characters with the best chemistry ever! :)

    • Thank you for commenting! To answer your question, I have a couple of other things on the docket first, and then who knows. (However, I’ll tell you a secret. I like to connect my books in not-obvious ways. So you never know who is going to turn up.)

      And the best compliment is, “This is how I imagine my storytelling voice to be.” Those are the books that I loved (love) the best. Make sure you put all your ideas on paper so that when you do get around to the writing part, you have lots of things to choose from. (That’s how both Texas Gothic and The Splendor Falls happened. TxG was an idea I had in high school.)

      Rosemary

      • Thank you so much for responding. Thanks for sharing the secret! I’ll be on the look out for the connections. :)

        That’s exactly what I do, I have loads of ideas randomly written down. Hopefully some day I can develop at least one of them into a book that is loved as much as yours.

        Thank you again for responding,
        Lindsey :)

  8. My friend and I have read all your books and love them. Please, please, please tell me you have a new book coming out sometime in the next year. Can’t wait to read more of your writing.
