Husband-wife writing team F.J.R. Titchenell & Matt Carter donated a signed set of The Prospero Chronicles Book 1 and 2 Splinters and Shards. I like to think of them as the Mulder and Scully writing duo because their series reminds me so much of the X-Files. I think they are daring, scary, and funny. I think there should be a campaign to get this on network television as a series or into movies. This is another series that you want to read with the lights on.
They are currently working together on book 2 of a series that Matt recently published called Almost Infamous: A Supervillian Novel. They have both published many short stories in the horror genre. You can find these anthologies on their websites.
Genre: Young Adult Fantasy/Horror
Splinters Description: Under most circumstances, Ben and Mina would never have had reason to speak to each other; he’s an easy-going people person with a healthy skepticism about the paranormal, and she’s a dangerously obsessive monster-hunter with a crippling fear of betrayal. But the small town of Prospero, California, has no ordinary circumstances to offer.
In order to uncover a plot set by the seemingly innocent but definitely shapeshifting monsters that look like friends, family, and neighbors, the two stark opposites must both find ways to put aside their differences and learn to trust each other.
When autumn descends on Prospero, California, Ben Pastor hopes that the normality of the new school year may offer a reprieve from the town’s recent paranormal horrors. Mina Todd, however, knows all too well that there are no reprieves and no normality in this town, especially after she starts having crippling, unexplained hallucinations of the dead. But even she can’t prepare for what the coming year holds.
On top of a brewing civil war that threatens all of humanity, inside the walls of Prospero High, Ben, Mina, and their expanding network face a sinister campaign that aims to destroy their friendship, a newly human Haley Perkins struggling to readjust to life, and an assassin of untold power who is picking off human rebels.
Ben and Mina’s one hope may rest with a mysterious figure hiding in the woods outside of town; a living legend who may know how to stop this dangerous new breed of supernatural foe. That is, assuming the figure doesn’t first kill everyone himself.
F.J.R TITCHENELL and MATT CARTER met and fell in love in a musical theatre class at Pasadena City College and have been inseparable ever since. Though they have both dreamed of being writers from a very young age, they both truly hit their stride after they met, bouncing ideas off of one another, forcing each other to strive to be better writers, and mingling Matt’s lifelong love of monsters with Fiona’s equally disturbing inability to let go of high school. They were married in 2011 in a ceremony that involved kilts, Star Wars music, and a cake topped by figurines of them fighting a zombified wedding party. Titchenell and Carter live in San Gabriel, California.
