About the Author
Kathleen Kaufman is a native Coloradan and long-time resident of Los Angeles. Her prose has been praised by Kirkus Reviews as "crisp, elegant" and "genuinely chilling" by Booklist. She is the author of The Tree Museum, The Lairdbalor, soon to be a feature film with Echo Lake Studios and director Nicholas Verso, and her most recent, Hag, due out in October 2018. Kathleen is a monster enthusiast, Olympic-level insomniac and aficionado of all things unsettling. When not writing, she can be found teaching literature and composition at Santa Monica College or hanging out with a good book. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband, son, terrier and a pack of cats.
"Spine-chilling tale of ancient rituals and restless spirits" - Fresh Fiction on Diabhal
"A great choice for readers drawn in to the folk horror of the movie Midsommar, fans of dark fantasy authors like Seanan McGuire, or horror featuring strong, female, teen protagonists like M. R. Carey's Someone Like Me (2018)."--Booklist
"Imagine a world of old magic that exists beside our own, but one that is darker, grittier, and more dangerous than you ever imagined. Kathleen Kaufman's Diabhal rings with ominous truths." --Alma Katsu, author of The Hunger
"A potent tale of mythos, superstition, and the power of little girls, Diabhal is told with rigor and surety. Kaufman is magnificent."-- Lee Murray, two-time Bram Stoker nominee and author of Into the Mist.
"...an engrossing tale of magic, darkness, and natural order" - Publishers Weekly
"Atmospheric and creepy as hell. Diabhal will get under your skin." --Kaaron Warren, Australian Shadow Award Winner and Peter McNamara Lifetime Achievement Recipient, Author of Tide of Stone.
