For the second time in as many weeks, I cross the spine of Shatter Hill at midnight and spot fire at the crossroad below . . .
“Gripping and darkly comic…Packed with unusual and enthralling characters, and set in a wonderfully realized high desert milieu, Crossroad had me hooked from page one.”
—Owen Laukkanen, author of The Forgotten Girls and The Watcher in the Wall

The World of Melisende Dulac
Crossroad takes place in Barlow County, Oregon. Though fictional, the county is inspired by the landscape and history of central Oregon, even down to taking its name from Sam Barlow, an Oregon Trail pioneer.
Some of the information on these pages can only be inferred from Crossroad. Some appears in other tales in the Melisende Dulac series, including the short story "Hey Nineteen." Beyond that, there are additional works-in-progress, including one that's now out on submission, two novellas, and a follow-up novel. So there should be more of Melisende Dulac's story to come.
Revisions are when you get to
get to move the darts onto the bullseye while no one is looking.
