T. Frohock has turned a love of history and dark fantasy into tales of deliciously creepy fiction. A real-life cyborg, T. has a cochlear implant, meaning she can turn you on or off with the flick of a switch. Make of that what you will. She currently lives in North Carolina, where she has long been accused of telling stories, which is a southern colloquialism for lying.

Miserere: An Autumn Tale
"With richly developed, complex characters and a talent for portraying the horrific nature of evil, the author relates a compelling tale of faith rediscovered, trust regained, and hope reawakened."
Library Journal, Starred Review
"It’s a story of faith, family obligation, love, forgiveness, and a healthy dose of sacrifice [...] with a tight plot [and] a strangely familiar world [...] One of the finest debuts of 2011, [MISERERE] remains a novel that I remember details from nearly three years later."
"Miserere is about redemption, and the triumph of our best impulses over our worst. It's also about swords, monsters, chases, ghosts, magic, court intrigues and battles to the death. It's also (and this is the important part) really, really good."
Alex Bledsoe, author of DARK JENNY
Los Nefilim Series
Where Oblivion Lives (#1)
“Frohock has intricately woven a unique reinterpretation of history. Eloquent prose accompanies a lyrical theme amid prewar tensions, enriching this imaginative historical fantasy.”
“WHERE OBLIVION LIVES is a dark and beautiful historical fantasy with a strong setting and stronger characters, one that has settled under my skin and wound its way into my bones in a way that I won’t soon forget.”
“WHERE OBLIVION LIVES is as full of pathos as it is thrills. Historical context, social commentary, fantastical music-magic, quick pacing, and a deeply personal narrative form a chorus that sing a story you’ll long to hear again.”
“The story builds momentum like a piece of music as the various threads converge on a Gotterdammerung crescendo.”
“I heartily recommend this to anyone who likes angel/demon stories, music magic, fantasy mixing with pre-WW2 history, and male protagonists who embrace vulnerability.”
“Dancing on the line between horror and fantasy, the adventures and situations that Diago faced kept me flipping pages long after my bedtime.”
“Anyone interested in historical-grounded dark fantasy should give the Los Nefilim verse of T Frohock a try. There are wondrous things within to be found.”
"[WHERE OBLIVION LIVES is] the kind of story that casts a spell on readers, immersing them in words as vivid and resonant as the music the nefilim imbue themselves with as they weave their magic."
“Where Oblivion Lives is a character driven story and Frohock sings [the characters] to life so well.”
“I didn’t just want everything that has to do with this novel, I needed it to soothe a part of my soul.”
“An outstanding read.”
"Where Oblivion Lives blew me away. It’s one of those books that swept my legs out from under me and left me reeling. A lot happens in these pages, not only with plot, but a lot of subtle details as well, which creates this perfect balance between relentless forward motion and personal growth. The world is so real, I felt transported there. The magic system is beautiful, and the prose are the icing on top of a positively decadent cake."
“Beautifully written. You can rely on Frohock for clear writing and, when the situation demands it, beautiful prose […] The story itself is a slow burn leading to an exciting crescendo with some genuinely creepy vibes.”
Mark Lawrence, author of Red Sister
“Brooding, intense, and introspective, WHERE OBLIVION LIVES evokes an eerily plausible 1932 Spain and France full of supernatural forces skirmishing in preparation for a bigger war, right in parallel with humanity. This is dark historical fantasy that sings.”
Beth Cato, author of Breath of Earth
“Frohock is a unique talent, and she has written a beautiful book. Parts of it will break your heart; the rest will make it whole again. I can’t wait to read the next installment.”
Judith Tarr, author of Lord of the Two Lands and Forgotten Suns
“Gorgeously lyrical, T. Frohock weaves a lush tapestry. At times beautiful and brutal, I am in awe of this unbelievably talented story-teller. Highly recommended!”
Michael R. Fletcher, author of Beyond Redemption
Carved from Stone and Dream (#2)
“Frohock seamlessly blends fantasy and WWII history into a heart-wrenching story of war in the action-packed second Los Nefilim novel.”
“Each book in this series can be read as a stand-alone, but readers will enjoy the depth of the characters more if they read Where Oblivion Lives first. Recommended for fans of dark fantasy, supernatural beings interacting with humanity, and spy stories.”
“Frohock charts her own path between the genres, drawing on many, subscribing to none — an innovator of style more than a follower of fashion. There are glimpses of urban fantasy, of horror, of historical fantasy, as well as a big enough dose of tense action for a Hollywood blockbuster, but ultimately CARVED FROM STONE AND DREAM is a unique and rewarding pleasure that defies categorisation.”
[S]olid, thoughtful and beautifully stark writing that doesn’t waste a word or pull a punch.”
“What I will forever love about these books are the strength of the characters, the importance placed on their bonds with each other and the strength they draw from each others love […] The writing as per usual is beautiful. It pulls you right in and brings the story to life with a colourful intensity. The characters and the setting are so wonderfully drawn. Frohock has created something truly brilliant and it’s always such a joy to inhabit this world (even when it hurts).”
“Excellently written (Frohock’s best work to date), potent, powerful, and memorable.”
A Song With Teeth (#3)
"This stellar read is profoundly human, capturing the emotions of each character and the difficulties they face in Nazi Germany."
“Frohock delivers her signature blend of magic, music, and WWII history in the vivid, complex finale to her Los Nefilim series… Frohock’s urgent prose keeps the pages turning. Series fans will find plenty to enjoy.”
"... raw, brutal, emotional and so damn satisfactory."
“A fantastic ending to a series of three novellas and three novels… In this world and moment in global history where authoritarians and fascists rise to try and overturn the results of Democracy, the story of the Los Nefilim is potent, resonant and a story that needs to be told.”
"A Song with Teeth is truly an unforgettable read. In a time where stories can often at times feel formulaic, this novel dares to be different and wears it with pride. It’s definitely one of the strongest books to be released so far in 2021, and I cannot recommend this novel enough."
