WHERE WICKED STARTS by Elizabeth Stuckey-French
YOUNG ADULT
Released: Oct. 14, 2014

"More effective as an exploration of the odd moments of transition as a blended family struggles to cohere than as a mystery. (Fiction. 14-18)"
Two stepsisters are preoccupied by weird characters who keep popping up around their Florida town. Read full book review >
THE REVENGE OF THE RADIOACTIVE LADY by Elizabeth Stuckey-French
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Feb. 8, 2011

"A dark, humorous portrait of a dysfunctional modern family. With its interesting premise and diverse, flawed characters, Stuckey-French's (Mermaids on the Moon, 2002, etc.) black comedy could have been even stronger. A tighter plot and a more developed heroine would have helped."
If revenge is a dish best served cold, then Marylou Ahearn is serving up ice cream. Read full book review >
MERMAIDS ON THE MOON by Elizabeth Stuckey-French
SCIENCE FICTION & FANTASY
Released: June 18, 2002

Stucky-French follows her story collection (The First Paper Girl in Red Oak, Iowa, 2000) with a soggy first novel about family relationships and synchronized swimming. Read full book review >
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: May 16, 2000

"A bit uneven, then, but strong debut. One hopes Stuckey-French will soon test her gift for exploring arrestingly unconventional characters and conflicts in the ampler latitudes of the novel."
A provocative debut collection of 12 edgy, effectively varied tales, many set in what appears to be their author's home state of Indiana. Read full book review >
