On tour with Prism Book Tours
Arabella Holmes—yes, daughter of that Holmes—wants to return to her job as a purveyor of abnormal science. She has temporarily been demoted to a botanist, until her love interest, Henry Watson—yes, that Watson—can help her get her less-than-professional outbursts in check.
Henry is tired of his new role as doctor, tired of the lack of adventure, and tired of keeping Bella’s escapades out of the papers.
Five girls are missing. Gone from locked rooms in their own houses. Arabella and Henry are called upon to help solve the kidnappings, but all they unearth is more danger.
Bella ventures undercover into a lunatic asylum, where a mute woman assaults her and scrawls the chilling words—Here the dead wake. Plus, a vial of Bella’s research poison has gone missing. Bella and Henry must find it, and the missing girls, before charges can be brought against her.
Praise for HERE WALK THE DEAD:

Other Books in the Series
Aspiring scientist Arabella Holmes doesn’t fit the role of a 1900s lady. Her father, Sherlock, landed her a position at the Mütter Museum to pursue her dream of becoming a purveyor of abnormal science, or what her father calls a “Boneseeker.”
Henry Watson’s two-fold mission at the Mütter Museum is to join their team of forensic anthropologists in unearthing unusual antiquities and to watch over Arabella. If only he could get her to speak to him, instead of hurling knives in his general direction. Assigned to a most secret expedition to investigate a mysterious skeletal hand discovered in upstate New York, Arabella and Henry are soon caught in a scientific debate, and the search for the truth may have deadly consequences for those involved.
Are the bones from a Neanderthal? Or are they living proof of fallen angels known as Nephilim?
Watson and Holmes must put aside their differences, trust their instincts, and rely on one another to survive to uncover the truth.

Q&A with Brynn
What would you say is your biggest failure in life?
Oh, wow. I’ve honestly never been asked that question before! I think I would have to say, the number of years it took me to figure out who I was, what I wanted, and what I was going to do about it.
Did you ever have a rough patch in writing, where nothing in the story seemed to fit or make sense?
Writing, is rough. Period. I’ve never met a writer who didn’t have periods of extreme productivity, and then periods of desolation. For me, the words are never the issue, its whatever extraneously may be happening in my life that whisks me away from my inner vortex.
You don’t have to be a writer in order to be an author – how true is that?
I’m not sure I understand this one. If you are a writer, you write. Regardless of fame, success, or literary praises. It’s part of you, like respiration, and cannot be removed. Even if you want it to, lol.
Did you always know that you were destined for literary greatness, or you, as they say, “stumbled” upon it?
I am not sure I deserve that lofty title, I write what’s in my heart and mind, and the character’s that won’t go away, sitting on my shoulders like some fae folk, I do their bidding, and compose their tales.
Do contemporary writers have the kind of animosity that competitors in showbiz seem to have?
In my travels, I have met DIVAS, and the most giving, wonderful souls. I have given my closest writer friends permission to cut me down to any size they see fit, should I ever feel such ridiculous sentiments arise. We’re all people. We all need help. All need joy. Whether you’re self published or you’re a NY Times Bestseller.
Are you friends with any of your contemporaries? If yes, do you discuss your current projects with each other?
I am a firm believer of writer friends. They are different from your other friends. And once you have them, you value the trust you have–to be able to brainstorm, and to commiserate failures and share in the joy of all things literary.
