Books of the Dead Press are proud to announce that we have signed Julie Hutchings to a one-book deal, and we will be releasing her debut novel “Running Home” in the coming months. She was also featured a short while ago on Books of the Dead with her flash fiction piece, The Threat.

Julie is the wildcard and muscle behind the Undead Duo – a two person writing team that includes Julie Hutchingsand Kristen Strassel. She is also a life-long New Englander with an obsession for the dark mysteries of the backwoods of New Hampshire.

Welcome aboard, Julie!
