Author Bio

Insha Fitzpatrick (she/they) is an author of books and graphic novels, including Who Sparked the Montgomery Bus Boycott?: Rosa Parks (Penguin Workshop, 2022), Hanging with Vampires (Quirk Books, 2023), and the co-author of the series Oh My Gods! She founded DIS/MEMBER, a genre website dedicated to all things horror, and when she’s not writing, she’s catching up on obscure horror films or consumed by reality TV.

Rowan MacColl (she/her) is a comic artist and illustrator from New England who loves historical clothing, ghost stories, and, of course, cats. She is constantly mixing up her coffee cup and her ink cup while juggling way too many personal projects, but she hasn’t poisoned herself yet. Rowan wants to draw and write stories about what makes people human. Her work includes the art of the graphic novel Nightmare in Savannah and her personal online comic Kingfisher.


"Readers who enjoy comic book art will find this graphic novel appealing...An exploration of the culture, religion, and political landscape of the early American colonies and how all those elements collided and caused a deadly reaction...A good overview of the Salem witch trials."—School Library Journal
