ACQUISITION ANNOUNCEMENT & INTERVIEW: Clare At 16, by Don Roff

Amidst all the chaos, here's something more to make our adrenaline run and our skin crawl—and maybe, just maybe, make us root for the bloodthirsty survivor in all of us.


Writer, filmmaker, and veteran Don Roff is no stranger to the Horror/ Thriller genres; his previous literary works include Snowblind, Ghost Quest: A Handbook for Paranormal Investigators, and the chilling collection of child-friendly tales, Scary Stories. Now, he's breaking into the Paliaverse with a new endeavor: CLARE AT 16, a coming-of-age tale of a girl-next-door, who's anything but.


Clare At 16 is the first in a proposed series following Clare Bleecker, a vegan school girl with a penchant for slashing creepy men with eyes for girls like her. She's an astute judge of character—her childhood trauma and resulting Dissociative Identity Disorder made sure of that. The lurking evil in the Eastern Washington town of Pickman Flats is about to learn the hard way that Clare can most definitely hold her own.


Roff's cutthroat storytelling has already garnered attention; with a Clare At 16 film project and web comic underway, we are also excited to bring Clare to life on page. She'll make for a killer Spring/ Summer 2021 release. Until then, we'll keep you updated, and as Roff reminds us—Slay responsibly
