A monster roams the halls of Soothing Hills Asylum. Three girls dead. 29 is endowed with the curse…or gift of perception. She hears messages in music, sees lyrics in paintings. And the corn. A lifetime asylum resident, the orchestral corn music is the only constant in her life.
Mason, a new, kind orderly, sees 29 as a woman, not a lunatic. And as his belief in her grows, so does her self- confidence. That perhaps she might escape, might see the outside world.
But the monster has other plans. The missing girls share one common thread…each was twenty-nine’s cell mate.
Will she be next?

The World of Requiem Red –
Soothing Hills Asylum
As a historical Ya author, I always do an Aspergian amount of researchfor any location and time period.
I look at customs, social protocols, clothing, and inevitably, medical treatments.
That may sound tedious to some, but I love it. Love, love, love sewing all those literary bits into a weave of words, pictures and sentiment.
I always start a pintrest board for every book, to help ground me into the world.
These are all from my board, links on pintrest.
Asylum-SOOTHING HILLS. I took the next few during my tour in West Virginia
Customs—What were courting rituals? Could women practice medicine? Own property? Go out unescorted?
Patient Twenty Nine has been incarcerated since the age of three, and was addicted to Laudanum for a time.
And the cold. Patient Twenty Nine lives through books—and it terrified of cold, the corn..and birds. You will have to read to find out why…but visiting my pintrest boards gives readers a general feel for the vein of my books.
Soothing Hills is not a happy place. But remember:
“Walking with a friend in the dark, is better than walking alone in the light.” – Helen Keller
Patient Twenty-nine’s world is about to change—with a hand extended in both dark and light.
