Amazon author profile:


“Debut author Arden offers readers a full plate of Southern gothic atmospherics and sparkling teen romance in a patiently crafted tale that will best reward careful readers... Satisfying teen entertainment but also a cathartic, uncompromising tribute to New Orleans.” – Kirkus Reviews

"In the way that it fuses the experience of adolescence, the city of New Orleans, history, magic and vampires, The Casquette Girls can’t help but be a fun adventure, but more than that, it’s a smart story with a surprising amount of emotional depth.” – IndieReader



I'm currently bouncing back and forth between Brooklyn and the Faubourg Marigny in an attempt to become less nomadic.  

I've been all around the world and then some, (my favorite place is Iceland!) but my hometown is still my real favorite place! I also really LOVE mythology and folklore, so I figured that would be a good place  to start. I have been a bookworm for as long as I can remember, but this is my first attempt at writing.  ^-^  

I would love as much feedback as possible, so feel free to comment, message me, tweet me, send smoke signals, or whatever it is that you do...

"I run this thing like a dancehall queen -- I really don't want no hassle."




My cover photo for The Casquette Girls was shot by my amazing friend (and Louisiana native) Christina Deare. You can check out more of her work here :)
