Also, her debut novel, The Hollow, sounds pretty good. It’s a modern day Sleepy Hollow tale.

THE HOLLOW – Simon Pulse, September 2009 – a love/ghost story set in modern day Sleepy Hollow

Visiting graves and talking to tombstones was all a part of daily life in Sleepy Hollow for sixteen year old Abigail Browning. But that normal life is turned upside down by the unexpected death of her best friend Kristen, and Abbey struggles to deal with the sudden loss. Feelings of hurt and betrayal follow closely behind, as a hidden diary reveals that Kristen was keeping secrets from her.
Torn between her grief and anger, Abbey sets out to uncover the truth with the help of a new friend, Caspian; a mysterious boy who has a secret of his own. Along the way, she’ll stumble upon the buried past of her famous town and learn that some secrets are kept for a reason, when she inadvertently comes face to face with the real Legend of Sleepy Hollow.
