MOTHERED is on a roll...

This week is off to a great start for MOTHERED!! The entire team is thrilled to have been interviewed for a feature article in Publishers Weekly, where we discussed the creation of MOTHERED in a piece titled Mother and Daughter Face Off in Zoje Stage's New Thriller. You can read the full article here

And we're very grateful for this new blurb from New York Times bestselling author, Heather Gudenkauf. Here is the blurb in its entirety:

"Zoje Stage expertly explores the blurred lines between memory and nightmare in this deliciously twisty and riveting page-turner. An eerily crafted chiller set against the claustrophobic isolation of the pandemic, Mothered is a must-read for psychological thriller fans. No one chronicles the complicated, sometimes perilous intensity of mother-daughter relationships like Stage. Absorbing, unsettling, and magnetic - don't miss this dark gem of a novel." - Heather Gudenkauf, New York Times bestselling author of The Overnight Guest

Recent News...

I didn't mean to be such a slacker, but somehow I've neglected to post any recent updates...I guess I've been busy getting ready for Halloween?

Speaking of Halloween, I had the chance to contribute my thoughts to a KIDSBURGH article about the benefits of horror for young readers. You can read the article here

I'm also ecstatic to report that a dream of many years is finally coming true: MY UNDERSLUMBERBUMBLEBEAST - the children's story featured in BABY TEETH - is going to be a real book, published by Bad Hand Books. It will be illustrated by the incredibly talented. J.E. Larson. More info soon!

The PR machine is in full swing for MOTHERED (3.1.23). I can't reveal TOO much about that yet, but I'm excited to unleash this slightly batshit crazy novel on the world. Stay tuned! And in the meanwhile be sure to add it to your Goodreads To-Read list and/or Pre-Order it from Amazon or your favorite local bookstore!

And last but not least, I am now part of TWO anthologies, both published by small presses and both featuring the work of amazing fellow authors:

- I have a short story in THE HIDEOUS BOOK OF HIDDEN HORRORS 
- I have two poems in CHIRAL MAD 5

Famous Writing Routines

I had the pleasure of doing an interview with the website Famous Writing Routines. It was a nice departure to be able to talk about the broader aspects of my writing life - what I was doing before I started writing novels, how my background in film and theatre influences my work, what a typical writing day looks like. You can read the interview here.

The Girl Who Outgrew The World

It's officially official!! My first novella, THE GIRL WHO OUTGREW THE WORLD, will be published on May 1, 2022 by the indie publisher, Lethe Press. This project is different for me - not only is it a novella, it's also a dark fairy tale - but this little book is very special to me.

If you're curious about Lilly's adventure, please consider pre-ordering the book.
