Profile: Roan Parrish

Roan Parrish lives in Philadelphia, where she is gradually attempting to write stories in every genre.

When not writing, she can usually be found cutting her friends’ hair, meandering through whatever city she’s in while listening to torch songs and melodic death metal, or cooking overly elaborate meals. She loves bonfires, winter beaches, minor chord harmonies, and self-tattooing. One time she may or may not have baked a six-layer chocolate cake and then thrown it out the window in a fit of pique.

A queer horror collection that blends music and prose to bring its haunted worlds to life.

Prepare for a chilling journey from a ruined church in Philadelphia, where the spirit that lurks is far from benign, to a Prohibition-era New Orleans jazz club, where a young man finds the love of his life—if he can live through the night; from a Detroit cemetery, where teenager rituals have unforeseen consequences, to a deserted beach in an unknown place, where two sisters let the ocean decide their fate; from the Jersey Shore, where the magic of a wistful summer could tear reality apart, to a Michigan high school where a teenager finds the mystery man of his dreams who’s with him everywhere—and forever.

Written by Roan Parrish and with original music by Timmi Meskers inspired equally by the baroque and by 1980s horror movie soundtracks, Strange Company explores the places where the ordinary world breaks down into the inexplicable, the maddening, the dreadful.
