Kacey Rayburn grew up in the Appalachian Mountains. Born into a family of granny witches and gravediggers, she enjoys long walks in the cemetery. She has a sweet fang for chai tea, mermaids, and folk horror. Sing Our Bones Eternal is her debut novel. Her short fiction has also appeared in The Theatre Phantasmagoria, Trembling With Fear, Myth & Lore Zine, and Grim & Gilded.
Author Head Shot
A young woman, stranded on a strange isle, discovers her true nature in Rayburn’s gothic reimagining of The Little Mermaid. Through the mist and the fog, cloven bodies wash ashore. Sinister songs haunt the tide pools, and burnt offerings rise from the sea cliffs.
Senga Goldie is an outcast on Hourglass Isle. Her father is wicked. Her mother is beguiled. Bound by a covenant to a hungry god, Senga has all the trappings of a huntress, but her world is shattered when a mirror-wielding mermaid befriends her. Caught between blood and water, she must choose between the only life she’s ever known and the deep dark nether.
