About Shriek: Legend of the Bean Sídhe
Sara Donovan is a banshee. Well, that’s what her father says. Her mom just thinks she needs a good psychiatrist. When she wakes the morning after her eighteenth birthday screaming her head off outside some stranger’s house, she’s inclined to believe her dad’s side of the story. She can’t control her shrieks – not when they happen or who dies – but things could always be worse. She could have a crazed madman determined to kill her, thanks to her newfound talents. Or, she could find out her long-time crush is the next to die.
Ridley O’Neill isn’t exactly unaware of Sara. As a long-time patron of her father’s diner, he’s watched her grow up. Now that she’s eighteen, she’s not the gap-toothed kid who used to serve him sweet tea. His current thoughts would send her mother the mayor into an apoplectic rage, since his family might as well have built the wrong side of town. Also, there’s a chance Sara is crazy. She’s convinced she’s a banshee and he’s on her hit list. Still, he can’t stay away from her, protecting her from a dangerous legacy, even knowing that her life saved means his is forfeit.
What can unbind the ancient banshee’s curse? With time running out, Sara and Ridley must choose between chasing answers and chasing love.
“Enthralling from the first page. First love falls foul of a banshee curse in a mesmerising twist on Irish mythology.”

Jennifer Barry started her entertainment career on a stage but ended up behind a keyboard. The writer’s life is much better suited to her introverted nature, but she uses her opera training at karaoke on occasion. She lives in Nashville with her hilarious Irish husband, Liam, who’s found moderate Internet fame among Jen’s Facebook friends and blog followers.
Jen wrote her first book at age twelve, and has cringed over it every day since. To date, she’s completed more novels than she could ever count and has published four. The first two, The Kingdom and The Morning Star, were inspired by her husband’s homeland and feature Irish mythology, a bit of her opera background, and some forbidden love. Side Effects, the third, is a love letter to teens suffering from mental illness and learning disabilities while navigating the hell that is high school. The fourth, Going Under: The Oracles of St. Ambrose, is a teen paranormal mystery set in her hometown of Nashville. Jen intended the books to be an homage to some of her favorite authors from childhood: Meg Cabot, Carolyn Keene, and Lois Duncan.
Jen spends her days working as a freelance marketing copywriter and ghostwriter, a job she does from her couch in Nashville. Her greatest fears are fake sweetener and small talk. Among the many loves of her life, she chooses Liam, her family, her furbabies, and craft beer above all.
