The Weeping Books Of Blinney Lane

Sarah Allister just wants a normal life running her bookshop and daydreaming about Henry, the handsome deliveryman—in spite of the three-hundred-year curse that rules her existence, along with the other shop owners on Blinney Lane, a niche shopping district in historical Salem.

Chasing Vengeance

In a world of secrets, what should be revealed?  

Damara takes you into the world of modern day covert operations with the first installment of her upcoming spy thriller series.

"Of all the comforting objects in this world, few things are as reassuring and accepting as books."

 — Drea Damara, The Weeping Books Of Blinney Lane

Drea Damara was born in Illinois where she grew up working on her family’s farm. Raised in a home of seven with one television, she spent much of her time in the fifty acres of woods on her family’s property or reading. Damara began to write poetry in her early teens and saw her first works published at nineteen. She put writing aside to join the Army and later returned to the Middle East conducting similar work as a civilian.

Damara is the author of The Weeping Books Of Blinney Lane, a crossover fantasy, which was nominated for a 2016 RONE Award in Best Fantasy.  Her newest novel is Chasing Vengeance, ​the first installment of the spy thriller series ​The Trinity Missions.
