And now book 2, THE ROMEO CATCHERS is published!

★ "In this Southern Gothic love letter to the spookier side of New Orleans's storied past, Arden spins out a moody tale of magic and mystery... a thoroughly satisfying page-turner and a strong." - Publisher's Weekly Starred Review

"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 New York and New Orleans in an attempt to become less nomadic. This is my first attempt at writing, so I would love as much feedback as possible. 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."
