Welcome past, present, and (I hope) future friends!
Many of you already know me through personal acquaintance or familiarity with my fiction, but for the uninitiated, please allow me to introduce myself:
I am Stephen Woodworth, author of the New York Times bestselling Violet Series of paranormal thrillers, including Through Violet Eyes, With Red Hands, In Golden Blood, and From Black Rooms. The books take place in an alternate reality in which communication with the dead is a scientifically-proven and widely accepted fact. Only rare, genetically-gifted individuals, known as “Violets” for their violet-colored eyes, possess the coveted ability to channel the deceased. Among other duties, they assist the police in homicide investigations and can even summon murder victims to testify against their killers in court. The Violets’ ability is so valuable that their lives are tightly controlled by the government’s oppressive North American Afterlife Communications Corps. For those of you who may not have had a chance to read the series, I hope you’ll check them out on Amazon here, or “wherever fine books are sold,” as the saying goes.
I have also published numerous short stories in such markets as Fantasy & Science Fiction, Realms of Fantasy, Weird Tales, Year’s Best Fantasy 9, and Midian Unmade.
I am also delighted to announce that I have a new novel, FRAULEIN FRANKENSTEIN, that has recently been published as an ebook by Amazon.com’s Kindle Press. As you will see from the cover art and posts on this blog, this book s a fun, sexy, spooky reimaging of Mary Shelley’s classic horror story told from the point of view of the mate Victor Frankenstein creates for his monster Whether or not you’ve been a fan of my past work, I hope you’ll give FRAULEIN FRANKENSTEIN a try and enjoy it if you do. I’d love to hear what you think!
And be sure to stay tuned to this blog for more Franken-fun and inside information on all my future projects.
