ONCE TWO SISTERS
My debut psychological thriller ONCE TWO SISTERS is coming
Fall 2020 from Crooked Lane Books
Happy for the first time in her life, ZOE HALLETT is living in Texas under an assumed name with her husband and stepdaughter, when she sees a news story about a missing best-selling author--her estranged sister AVA HALLETT.
While Zoe believes this “disappearance” is just another of Ava’s twisted fictions, Ava struggles to survive.
Can these sisters leave the emotional turmoil of the past behind, or will a troubled childhood kill more than their relationship?
"A breathless energy imbues the strong plot, which alternates between Zoe’s tense family relationships and Ava’s claustrophobic captivity. Warburton delves deep into the psychological underpinnings of her believable characters in this highly entertaining domestic thriller. Readers will eagerly anticipate her next."~Publishers Weekly
I'm a writer, reader, and knitter (not necessarily in that order.) After earning a B. A. in Latin from the College of William and Mary, an M.A. in Classics from the University of Georgia and another from Brown University, I studied at the University of New Mexico with Sharon Oard Warner and Julie Shigekuni, at the Taos Writer’s Workshop with Pam Houston, and in Houston with Justin Cronin. My short story, “Margaret’s Magnolia,” appeared in the “Southern Arts Journal” and I won first place in a WOW! Women on Writing Flash Fiction Contest. I'm the author of the thriller ONCE TWO SISTERS, a novel coming in August 2020.
I love crime, thrillers, and mysteries.
I've been told that for a "basically happy person" I write very bleak prose.
