CHANNILLO
the old oak tree is dying
By Laura Grace

Series Description:

Harri has spent her whole childhood navigating her mother's crippling OCD. There are complex rules – the backyard is forbidden on Tuesday new moons – and countless rituals she follows daily, marking the days until she graduates and can move far away.

Tessa does everything she can to keep her daughter safe. She knows the house has gone mad, has fed a madness within herself, but none of that matters. And as soon as Harri is safely off to college, Tessa can take the steps necessary to save other families this torture.

A school project leads Harri, along with her best friend (and crush?) Kayla, deep into the history of the house she’s grown to resent. Flipping between Harri’s time and the many past lives of the house, a multi-layered story begins to emerge. The three women realize that saving themselves might be far more catastrophic then they realized.

Author Bio For Laura Grace:

Laura Grace is a California native and self-proclaimed word nerd. She holds an MFA in Writing from CalArts, where she channeled her love of weird stories in funky formats into one of her very own. She writes prose and poetry and a lot that is both and neither. Her work has recently been featured in Kaaterskill Basin, Gone Lawn, and The Rain, Party, & Disaster Society, and will appear in the upcoming Waves Anthology (2019 AROHO Press). When she isn’t teaching small humans, Laura spends her time searching for the consummate driving playlist and mourns the death of the mix tape.
