Jen Archer Wood
Artisanal Publisher, Art Historian, Pancake Enthusiast

About Jen:

Jen Archer Wood is an artisanal publisher.
She makes great pancakes too.

After earning a Masters and a research degree in European art history, she put a ring on her lifelong love affair with the horror genre and wrote her first novel, Point Pleasant, which is set for publication in September 2013.

Though she lives in London, Jen is originally from Atlanta, Georgia and has a vast appreciation for her southern heritage and the strange stories that arise from its drawling denizens. She is an admirer of the southern gothic tradition, American urban legends, and the scent of rain on rusty screen doors.

Her follow-up novel, Garage Sale Photograph, will unravel a haunting in Savannah, Georgia and is due out in late 2013.

Follow her on Twitter, Goodreads, or visit her Tumblr for useless reblogs of art, serious business writer stuff, and her excitable panics over TV shows about time-traveling aliens with sassy companions, Georgians with crossbows and samurai swords, and sometimes—just sometimes—that show where Ben Linus from Lost teams up with Jesus and their scruffy dog to fight crimes that haven’t happened yet.

You can also find her on LinkedIn and Google+ (but not as much).

UPDATES

Point Pleasant

Ben Wisehart grew up in the idyllic town of Point Pleasant, West Virginia. An early encounter with the supernatural shaped his worldview and served as the catalyst for his career as a bestselling horror writer.

Ben left Point Pleasant at the age of twenty. Thirteen years after abandoning his home, he returns to the town to investigate the apparent reemergence of the terrifying creature responsible for his childhood nightmares.

In Point Pleasant, Ben is confronted not only by the town’s resident monster, the Mothman, but also by Nicholas Nolan, Ben’s former best friend. Together, with Bill Tucker—the old recluse who lives on the edge of town—Ben and Nicholas uncover the mystery of the monster in the woods and discover that the ghosts that haunt us are sometimes made of flesh and blood. And sometimes, they lead us home.

Point Pleasant is available for purchase as a paperback and an ebook. Links for where to buy are HERE.
