Former Vernon resident Rachel A. Brune brings readers tales of fatal symphonies, impossible deals with fairies, and ravenous ghosts, in a new anthology available March 21 from Crone Girls Press.
Brune, a New Jersey native who graduated in 1996 from Pope John XXIII Regional H.S., is a former military journalist whose column "Dispatches from the Front" appeared in the Advertiser-News in 2012. After leaving the active duty military, she began writing and editing speculative fiction.
She is the founder and editor-in-chief of Crone Girls Press. Coppice & Brake, an anthology of horror and dark fiction, contains chilling stories with settings from modern-day San Francisco to ancient China, written by authors from California to Canada to the Czech Republic.
