Please read on to learn more about Wendy’s exciting debut, including the exclusive cover reveal, summary, and a special note from the author about the novel’s origins and inspiration!
Hello! I’m so pleased to be able to share this beautiful, haunting cover with you. When I saw it, I actually gasped. I could never have prepared myself for such a visually arresting design. Thank you so much to my editor, Michelle Meade, as well as the designer, Laci Ann Shaffer, and cover director, Kathleen Oudit.
Here’s a bit about the book and the inspiration behind it:
Hunting Annabelle was originally a short story. I had this character stuck in my head, and I was intrigued by the idea of him haunting a theme park, afraid to let himself return to society after spending his formative years incarcerated. When Annabelle walked onto the page, I knew I had my next novel, and there was no going back.
This book truly has my heart. It is an ode to “Annabel Lee,” my favorite Edgar Allan Poe poem, and an excavation of the darkest corners of a human heart. I hope readers will find themselves fascinated by Sean as they dive into the mystery of Annabelle’s disappearance.

“Her scream echoes in my memory. I know what happened. Whether anyone believes me or not, I know.”
Sean Suh is done with killing. After serving three years in a psychiatric prison, he’s determined to stay away from temptation. But he can’t resist Annabelle—beautiful, confident, incandescent Annabelle—who alone can see past the monster to the man inside. The man he’s desperately trying to be.
Then Annabelle disappears.
Sean is sure she’s been kidnapped—he witnessed her being taken firsthand—but the police are convinced that Sean himself is at the center of this crime. And he must admit, his illness has caused him to “lose time” before. What if there’s more to what happened than he’s able to remember?
Though haunted by the fear that it might be better for Annabelle if he never finds her, Sean can’t bring himself to let go of her without a fight. To save her, he’ll have to do more than confront his own demons… He’ll have to let them loose.
A chilling, deeply suspenseful page-turner set in the 1980s, Hunting Annabelle is a stunning debut that will leave you breathless to the very end.
Doesn’t that sound amazing? You can pre-order Wendy’s fabulous debut on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or your favorite indie bookstore!
