About the book:

The Haunted House was selected by Denise Duhamel as the winner of the 2008 Gatewood Prize, and will be released by Switchback Books on April 1st. For more information, go to

"This poetry is the unholy and inevitable spawn of Emily Dickinson and Judy Blume. And it's a sugar high. Enter and enjoy the rush."
– Arielle Greenberg

"What's a new book of poetry without a prom parade of ghosts and girlfriends, joyrides with monsters, poems that offer up humor with your thrills, language so sharp it chills, and lines that will make you stop dead in your tracks? 'If heaven was a house, what bone structure.' It's scary how good this is."
-- Toni Mirosevich
