Thanks so much for having us here at My Fiction Nook, Sandra! We're so excited to talk about our Kanaan and Tilney investigations series--and book 3, The Case of the Undead Wood, which just came out today. Today we've got an interview, a quiz, and a giveaway for you, so please join in!
Kanaan and Tilney: The Case of the Undead Wood
(Kanaan and Tilney Investigations 3)
By Jenna Rose and Katey Hawthorne
Praeternaturals—people with paranormal powers—all over Boston know Lowell Kanaan and John Tilney for their discretion and forthrightness as private detectives. They’re also about to move in together, and John seems to be dragging his feet for reasons Lowell can’t fathom. Personal worries are quickly put aside, however, when they get a top-priority case: someone has introduced a blight into the Terran Garden, a kind of living graveyard for dormant Terrans who’ve become one with trees.
Cover by Aisha Akeju
Most blights don’t cause trees to start craving human flesh, but somehow, this one has, and one Gardener is already dead. If Lowell and John can’t navigate the back-channels of Terran politics and secrecy quickly enough, more dead will certainly follow. Accusations abound: a Necromorph revenge plot, a widower’s anger, a friend’s jealousy, political maneuvering, or simply an ugly accident. The only thing that’s clear is the carnage will get worse until Lowell and John discover who introduced this new blight and why they’d desecrate sacred Terran ground.
Just when Lowell was starting to think he’d seen it all… foliage zombies.

The world of the Kanaan and Tilney Investigations is populated by five different factions of "praeternaturals": Elementalists, Terrans, Necromorphs, Beasts, and Psychogenics. This quiz will help you find out where you'd fit in! Would you be throwing lightning with the Elementalists, reading minds with the Psys, or shifting like a Beast?
Leave a comment on this post--let us know what faction you got in the quiz, ask questions, or just say hello! You’ll be entered to win a Kanaan and Tilney swag pack that includes magnet, notebook, pen, and bath bombs, plus a $5 Amazon gift card.
(Due to COVID-19 restrictions, only American winners can get the swag pack, but the gift card offer is international!)

Hey there, co-author! Thanks for joining me! To start off this little interview, I’m gonna ask about the practical stuff: We write together in real-time, which is a slightly more high-pressure way of co-authoring for some, but really flows for us. Do you have a ritual or anything that gets you in the right headspace when we’re working on Kanaan and Tilney?
Jenna: I do! I take the dog out to pee, grab a drink, and then throw on some headphones. I like background noise while I work, but anything with lyrics or talking in it is too distracting, so I usually listen to instrumental music (my favorite at the moment is the video game soundtrack to Journey) or put on something like Rainy Mood.
Ooooh I like that! Background noise is great for my focus, too. Is there anything specific, mood-wise, that you like to use that reminds you of Lowell? Not that you never have to write John, but that is kinda our method.
