About the Author

T. Marie Vandelly has wanted to write her entire life but (after a career change) has only recently been granted the freedom to pursue her dream full-time. She lives on Gwynn's Island, in the Chesapeake Bay, with her husband and their two dogs. Theme Music is her first novel.


Praise for Theme Music

"This is the scariest book since The Haunting of Hill House. . . . The most gripping and suspenseful debut novel of the year . . . Theme Music is more than compelling; it is mesmerizing."--New York Journal of Books

"[Theme Music] promises to be one of the strangest and most enchanting works to come out this year."--CrimeReads

"[A] chilling, enthralling debut . . . Driven by a believable plot and populated with realistic characters, this delicious mix of horror, ghost story, and mystery marks Vandelly as a writer to watch."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"A story as frenzied and hard-hitting as the characters bound within it . . . Readers will be bombarded with uninhibited descriptions and dauntless curveballs."--Fangoria

"This one works really well for fans of dark mysteries, psychological thrillers, and horror--you'll be kept on the edge of your seat and on your toes the entire time."--Book Riot

"Vandelly shows a deft touch at creating characters and spinning plots, leading to an almost unbearably terrifying and bloody climax in this gripping debut."--Booklist

"[Theme Music's] many twists, surprises, and reversals will keep readers hooked."--Kirkus Reviews

"What a riveting and disturbing read this is! Charting the return of Dixie Wheeler to the childhood home where her parents and brothers were killed in front of her, Theme Music is a fierce and intense slice of psychological horror that will leave you vowing, 'Never Go Back. Never.' "--Louise Candlish, bestselling author of Our House and Those People

"A hypnotic blend of mind-bending, quasi-supernatural suspense and dark family secrets--readers will find themselves completely immersed in the utterly convincing world [Vandelly] crafts. . . . Vivid and lush, intricate and downright addictive. Read it with ALL the lights on, but make sure you read it."--Crime by the Book
