M DRESSLER, "The Last to See Me: A Novel"
The Regulator welcomes M Dressler, author of The Last to See Me, a spellbinding American ghost story and haunting narrative about a young woman’s fight for a life of her own—long after her life is over, for a supernatural reading and book signing.
Emma Rose Finnis was born and died in the California town she now haunts. She was once a lowly chambermaid and worse, a Finnis. When a determined ghost hunter arrives with instructions to remove her once and for all, Emma Rose refuses to be hounded from her haunt, the stately Lambry Mansion. She’s earned her place and she’ll keep it—even if it means waging a war on the living. After all, she’s got nothing left to lose. The same might not be said for those who still enjoy the luxury of a breath...
M Dressler’s stories and nonfiction have appeared in the Kenyon Review, Creative Nonfiction, and Literary Hub, among others. Her honors include the Fulbright Fellowship and the Paisano Fellowship in literature, as well as writing residencies at Hedgebrook and the Carson McCullers Center. She is a professor and current writer-in-residence at Guilford College. She lives in Greensboro and in Moab, Utah.
