“Two years ago, Jayde Holloway discovered that she had the power to erase memories in the worst way possible: by accidentally wiping her best friend Jenny’s at the end of their senior year. Now, shut off from the world, Jayde exists solely for her role as the Sin Eater, an entity who can take away a person’s every bad memory if they so wish… for a price. Jayde hates the lonely life that she’s dealt, especially under her strict boss Jak, who consistently keeps her under his watchful eye through blackmail: a constant reminder of all of her mistakes. When she must travel back to her hometown, Jayde secretly befriends two siblings with a haunted past of their own. As her own painful memories begin to overwhelm, Jayde must make a choice: remain chained to a familiar but hurtful past, or reveal all of her darkest secrets for what could be a better future.”
Sin Eater has one of the most compelling lead characters I’ve read this year. The idea behind the story felt original, with some insightful moments and vivid imagery.
Sin Eater was superbly original, with a well-articulated tone that I relished, and a thick atmosphere that one will only find in top shelf fantasy.”

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
The idea of this book actually came to me during a really hard time in my life. I had so many memories that I wished I could forget, because I felt that if they were gone, I'd be able to move on and be happy. That made me wonder: if someone had the power to erase your memories, would people actually do it? I like to draw, and I'd been drawing a character for a long time that wore goggles and crazy outfits. When that idea came to mind and I wanted to write a book about it, I knew she should be my main character.
