Monsters and Misfits
An infamous psychiatric hospital seeks revenge. An unusual encounter on a lonely road. A tongue-in-cheek tale of Tudor executioners. And a man who dreams of selling you cheese.
For the first time ever, Evans’ short stories and poems can be found in one place. Terror, tragedy, and heartbreak with a little dark humour for flavour. Something for the monsters and misfits in us all.
Pull up a chair, wrap yourself in a blanket, dim the lights, and let’s begin.
“A diverse collection of stories and poems lovingly crafted by the capable hands of a woman who clearly knows how to invoke the fantastical, the grotesque, the humorous, and especially the macabre.”
S. Alessandro Martinez, Bram Stoker-Nominated Author

The Strange Tale of Miss Victoria Frank
Nikola Tesla, the visionary genius, is lecturing in New York City when he falls for Victoria, the mysterious young woman he sees night after night in the front row. The woman intrigues him; her curiosity is as great as his own, and her interest is wide-ranging.
But there’s something she’s hiding, a family secret so horrendous no one speaks of it. When Tesla finds out, he has a decision to make: listen to the inner voice warning him to stay away, or abandon his morality and help her with her own terrible science.
