The Women in the Walls
By: Amy Lukavics
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Publication Date: September 27th, 2016
Lucy Acosta’s mother died when she was three. Growing up in a Victorian mansion in the middle of the woods with her cold, distant father, she explored the dark hallways of the estate with her cousin, Margaret. They’re inseparable—a family.
When her aunt Penelope, the only mother she’s ever known, tragically disappears while walking in the woods surrounding their estate, Lucy finds herself devastated and alone. Margaret has been spending a lot of time in the attic. She claims she can hear her dead mother’s voice whispering from the walls. Emotionally shut out by her father, Lucy watches helplessly as her cousin’s sanity slowly unravels. But when she begins hearing voices herself, Lucy finds herself confronting an ancient and deadly legacy that has marked the women in her family for generations.

What are some “fun facts” or behind the scenes info you can share about the characters from your book or the world you created for it that may or may not have made it to the final draft of the book?
– the original proposal for the book outlined a completely different story than what it turned out to be.
– Lucy’s name used to be Lacey, but my editor kept reading it as ‘Lucy’ and I liked that better
– this book has the highest body count of my books so far, including the one I’m working on now that comes out next year
– there is a death in the book that was inspired by one of the deaths in The Virgin Suicides.
– there were several times throughout writing this book that I didn’t think I could finish it. If it weren’t for my agent and editor to keep me sane, I don’t think I would have.
Ever since she was little, Amy was especially intrigued by horror books and movies. Raised in a small mountain town in Arizona, she sustained herself on a steady diet of Goosebumps, Fear Street, and Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark books before discovering Stephen King in her mother’s bookshelf.
Amy lives with her husband, their two precious squidlings, and an old gentleman cat by the name of Frodo. When she isn’t writing, she enjoys cooking, crafting, and playing games across many platforms.
