Australian author Viola Carr.

Harper Voyager debut authors Viola Carr and Alex Gordon join the already brimming slate at Phoenix Comicon in May.

The Australian Carr, who also writes urban fantasy and paranormal romance under the moniker Erica Hayes, is visiting in support of her debut (as Carr), The Diabolical Miss Hyde. An entertaining mélange of steampunk, penny dreadful horror and police procedural filled with plenty of wit and sharp prose, the novel follows the daughter of the infamous Dr. Jekyll, herself an accomplished medical doctor and alienist. She also, however inherited her father’s split personality, with her alter-ego Lizzie Hyde assisting in the investigation of a serial killer in 19th Century London. Just don’t ask my opinion of the cover!

Not to be confused with the Kansas City Royals leftfielder, Alex Gordon’s debut novel Gideon hit shelves in January. The supernatural thriller follows a young woman who becomes embroiled in an age-old battle between good and evil, centered around a mysterious Midwestern town named Gideon. After her father dies, Lauren Reardon researches her family history and discovers she is descended from a coven of witches who guard our world to prevent intrusions of evil. Gordon is currently working on the follow-up, Jericho.

Phoenix Comicon runs from May 28-31. Check back for more author announcements and visit the website for the full slate of pop culture and comic superstars.
