Our new Renna Olsen novel, Holly Virginia, is available on Amazon! Despite a difficult December, we managed to finish it up. We are proud of this book. While it is not straight horror, it is a paranormal thriller with some horror elements. It also has a lot of heart. We hope you like it.
In late 1800’s Oregon, Ben and Nina Truesdell and their three children struggle to make a life. Barely tolerated by the people of Riverside because of Nina and the children’s native blood but still sought after for their disabled youngest daughter Holly Virginia’s healing touch, their insular world is shattered with the arrival of a smooth talking conman, Ezekiel Waterford.
Selling salvation in a bottle and bringing hell with him, Ezekiel sees an opportunity to exploit Holly Virginia’s miraculous gift for his own financial gain and a chance at immortality.
Setting his evil plan in motion, Ezekiel steals away Holly Virginia and her devoted sister Emma, leaving older brother Noble to embark on a perilous journey down the Pacific Coast to rescue his sisters. Along the way, he finds help in unusual places and a strength he never knew he possessed. He’ll need both if he is to help save his family from Ezekiel’s depraved vision of utopia.
Happy New Year,
Anne, Nancy and Eric
