From the Archives: Raven's Song, Circa 1998

A wrong is unredressed when retribution overtakes its redresser.

--Edgar Alan Poe

Before my unfinished novel Raven's Song begins, that quote from "The Cask of Amontillado" is the first thing you see. Raven’s Song is the story of Raven, a 15-year old girl who has been sent away to a boarding school by her parents in order to safely hide her away from her stalker ex-boyfriend Tiyon. Raven is miserable because she is interested in art and the school she has been sent to specializes in math and science. She also feels ashamed that she ever got involved with Tiyon, who had a long history of emotional problems. One day she discovers that Tiyon has sent her a letter at school. One of her friends had been tricked into giving him her new address. Now realizing her cover is blown but not wanting to transfer schools again, Raven decides to take things into her own hands. She will get revenge. She will stalk him. But will her obsession with getting revenge take over Raven’s life?

This novel has been abandoned since 2002, but you can read some excerpts from it over at my fiction blog, Tragedienne.
