WHAT'S NEW

  • July 28, 2020: The Occultists Book trailer! Click here!
     

  • July 17, 2020: "The Occultists," my debut novel, is released! Go to here to get it!

    John Linwood Grant (The Assassin's Coin and A Persistence of Geraniums) said, "An Edwardian tapestry of ceaseless occult war and worldwide political struggle ... Schattel surprises by skillfully reanimating old tropes as she explores dreadful personal loss, unexpected betrayal, and dogged persistence. With its memorable monstrosities--both human and other--its conflicted protagonist, and a plot full of twists, The Occultists is a fascinating tale of both the esoteric and the mundane."
