About ‘Vengeance Road’

Vengeance Road

Kate Thompson is 18 when the Red Rose Gang hangs her father to get his journal leading to a lost fortune of gold. Alone with nothing to lose, she disguises herself as a boy and tracks her father’s killers into the heat of the Arizona desert in search of answers to his senseless murder.

Along the way, Kate encounters suspicious strangers, violent dust storms, and dubious friends as well as finding love with an unlikely suitor. Soon Kate must decide what she treasures most as flying bullets, family secrets, and unimaginable wealth culminate in a final showdown.

Vengeance Road will be available to purchase on September 1, 2015.

‘Vengeance Road’ book trailer

We’re exclusively revealing the book trailer today. Watch it below:

The trailer, just like the cover, offers a lot to look at. With great twangy music in the background, the images of guns, fire, and the desert show us how ruthless this journey could be for Kate.

But it’s not all death and destruction. Kate might also find romance along the way — if she can trust him to be after her heart and not the fortune she’s set to inherit.

About the author


Erin grew up in rural Connecticut, where she spent most of her childhood telling stories. It is rumored that her first words were not “Mama” or “Dada,” but “Once upon a time.” In middle school, when kids were going off to sleep-away camp for the summer, Erin was attending writing camp and penning short stories.

She studied web design (and minored in Creative Writing because she couldn’t stay away from stories) at the Rochester Institute of Technology in upstate New York.
After several years working in advertising and designing websites for various brands, she moved from Boston to New Hampshire, where she now lives with her family and writes full-time.

When not writing, Erin can often be found hiking, geeking out over good typography, and obsessing over all things Harry Potter. She drinks a lot of coffee, buys far too many books, and is not terribly skilled at writing about herself in the third person.
