Editorial Reviews


"The story of Owl Manor is a thought-provoking and thrilling one that is multi-layered and fast-paced. Zita Harrison in Owl Manor has managed to weave poignant themes with interesting, dynamic characters and interweave both to make an astonishing piece of fiction that is both addictive and fast-paced. Every detail in the Owl Manor is superb and thought out, Harrison is a descriptive writer and so the reader is easily able to get lost in her words and imagine the manor in this book perfectly. Never before have I read a suspense, gothic horror novel that was so in-depth, truly every detail was immaculate, and this is rare to find these days within literature."-

"Owl Manor the Dawning is an amazing gothic horror novel that instantly takes you back to a time where life was harder and misery seemed to love company. The story follows Eva, Mr. Bradstone, Gilbert, and Joseph on a wild ride to madness, and every single unexpected twist and turn left me breathless. Zita Harrison's writing is reminiscent to Poe, in which the entire story comes alive and leaves you anxiously turning the pages to see what is going to happen. The foreshadowing is amazing, and if you aren't careful, you just may miss it (and it is so much more fun to find them the second time around!). Zita Harrison does an incredible job with this epic gothic horror novel. Her story will stay with me long, and I will never look at owls the same again!"

A line in the bookthat stoodout to the reviewer: 
"...but even withinthatoblivion had stirred something dark and malevolent." 
"Owl Manor is a wonderful example of Regency style Gothic horror,heavy on the tropes of the genre, but still telling a taut and masterful story.The heroine is a mix of a modern feminist in thought, trapped in an age wherewomen are commodities, and a naive young woman that so often features in thesegothic novels. It sounds jarring but provides modern readers a reason to rootfor our young Eva as she pits herself against Owl Manor and the secrets within.There are all the right ingredients for a gothic novel - a large sweeping manorhouse, the spirits of murdered young women, a dark and foreboding man, and ourheroine, plunged into the middle of all this in a mix of fate and poor lifechoices; which lead to some comical moments when read with a modern viewpoint,but make perfect sense within the body of the novel. The book has some standout moments - the toxic and yet seemingly irresistible draw of Owl Manor andits owner is skillfully written, and the descriptions and comportment of thehousehold are true to the era. The romance, which is a tense slow burn, reallyadds to the book, as we know it is a bad idea, and yet, the participants cannothelp themselves, and like any good tragedy, we the readers must buckle down toobserve the fallout.It has a few flat moments too - some of the characters area little single-minded in their "evil", and the overarching plotmakes me think that the author has strong opinions on the subjects within -which can draw one out of the novel. However, overall, Owl Manor was a greathorror novel, and I sat and read it in one sitting, enjoying the spookyambiance and delighting in reading all my favorite Regency motifs in one place."

I have found nothing out there that compares to the thrill of creating and experiencing Art. Art in every form: writing, painting, music, theater; all in the end expressions of life. The joys, the agonies, the frustrations.

However abstract, transcendental, or bizarre, Art draws from life; a vision, a thought, an epiphany sparked by what is going on around us. It challenges boundaries, explores new ideas and new ways to communicate them, and, finally, has the power to reach and connect with people of all different cultures and beliefs.

All my life I have been passionate about both Writing and Art and am now happily writing, and creating Art in the form of both Graphic Design as well as personal Art.

As a child, I avidly read ghost stories. In high school, I fell in love with "Wuthering Heights" by Emily Bronte, and "Jane Eyre" by Charlotte Bronte, a love that continued into adulthood. My writing is inspired by Pablo Picasso’s words: “A work of art must make a man react, feel strongly … He must be seized by the throat and shaken up … he has to be made aware of the world he’s living in and for that he must first be jolted out of it.”

I am currently working on the third and final book of the Owl Manor trilogy.

I am an ecstatic resident of the San Francisco Bay Area. My books, cover artwork and blogs can be found at or on Facebook at:
