HOLLOWS AND WITCHES


How far into the hollow would you go? 


“After losing her parents in a terrorist attack on the Twin Towers, fifteen-year-old Honoria escapes New York City to Arnn—a farming town with more legends than residents, and a history of witchcraft and secrets best left buried.

Everyone in Arnn knows the story of Witchwood Hollow: if you venture into the whispering forest, the witch will trap your soul among the shadowed trees. In the lure of that perpetual darkness, Honoria finds hope when she should be afraid, and a past of missing children and broken promises. To save the citizens of Arnn from becoming the witch’s next victims, she must find the truth behind the woman’s madness. How deep into Witchwood Hollow does Honoria dare venture?”

ESCAPE FROM WITCHWOOD HOLLOW is Jordan Elizabeth’s first novel. This young adult fantasy, published through Curiosity Quills Press, is now available for purchase at CURIOSITY QUILLS

Jordan Elizabeth, formally Jordan Elizabeth Mierek, can’t get enough of the woods, be it splashing through a stream, sitting beneath an ancient oak, or following a path up a hill. Some of those adventures have led to abandoned foundations. Exploring the rocks and crumbling bricks sparked Jordan to imagine who might have lived there before, and that train of thought carried her to a wicked legend and an enchanted hollow. 

You can contact Jordan via her website, www.JordanElizabethMierek.com.


Facts about Witchwood Hollow

As told by Honoria

1) Before we get to Witchwood Hollow, let me tell you about Arnn. The first European settlers ventured here around 1670.

2) Arnn began with a fort – it is gone now – and the people spread out into neighboring farms.

3) Arnn became an official town in 1798. I’m not sure what official means. It’s just what the social studies teacher told us in class.

4) Witchwood Hollow consists primarily of maple, oak, apple, and pine trees.

5) When you venture into Witchwood Hollow, the witch traps you.

6) Some adults don’t want to talk about Witchwood Hollow; others are more than happy to. I guess that isn’t really a fact.

7) Local records show that Witchwood Hollow has “consumed” 175 people.

8) Teens come from all over New York State to see how far into the hollow they will go.

9) I, Honoria, have ventured into Witchwood Hollow the farthest.

10) The witch is supposedly gone now. I want to bring her back.
