Micah C. Brown


Despite being the tallest girl at Rocky Mountain High School, at 6’9” Jasmine Trask is also the tallest person by half a foot. Her height isn’t the only abnormal thing about the gothic styled young woman – unbeknownst to her the Angel of Death has been subtly manipulating her life toward an unknown goal.

Haunted by a brutal act of violence, Jasmine’s choices will haunt her through high school, but she’s not alone. Best friends Mike and Michelle will be there to stand beside her and support her, but are they more than just friends?

Set against the backdrop of 1990s coffeehouse culture, this is a look at the independence of Generation X. While supernatural forces are swirling around them, Jasmine, Mike, and Michelle are also steeped in the music, counterculture, and growing hope of 1990s America.

'Darkly nostalgic'

Micah Brown takes the term 'rebel author' to new and dark places with his wickedly beautiful debut novel Designs of Death. This is a darkly nostalgic book that explores deep themes surrounding life, death, love, and friendship juxtaposed beautifully with macabre descriptions of the supernatural that will leave you breathless. This novel is hauntingly familiar as it capitalizes on the culturally rich nostalgia from the 90's and gives readers a dark twist by setting it in the gothic scene; which eventually becomes a safe haven for readers as supernatural and dark forces emerge throughout the novel.
