Feature: The Sullivan Sisters by Kathryn Ormsbee
Earlier this year, Kathryn Ormsbee ran a contest for newsletter subscribers. She asked us to send her our favorite story of siblings and she would pick her favs to win an ARC. I chose to write about my fav siblings – the Winchesters, of course. With the upcoming series finale, I thought I’d share what they mean to me. Check it out below and pick up The Sullivan Sisters, out now!

Time changes things.
That painful fact of life couldn’t be truer for the Sullivan sisters. Once, they used to be close, sharing secrets inside homemade blanket castles. Now, life in the Sullivan house means closed doors and secrets left untold.
Fourteen-year-old Murphy, an aspiring magician, is shocked by the death of Siegfried, her pet turtle. Seventeen-year-old Claire is bound for better things than her Oregonian hometown—until she receives a crushing rejection from her dream college. And eighteen-year-old Eileen is nursing a growing addiction in the wake of life-altering news.
Then, days before Christmas, a letter arrives, informing the sisters of a dead uncle and an inheritance they knew nothing about. The news forces them to band together in the face of a sinister family mystery…and, possibly, murder.
My Favorite Sibling Story in Honor of The Sullivan Sisters
My favorite story of siblings is the story of the Winchesters on Supernatural. For 15 years, since the day the show started, I’ve followed Sam and Dean’s journey, beginning with Sam’s reluctance to join his brother for the family business. Over the years, I’ve seen them go to hell and back for each other, fight, spend time apart, mourn their parents (more than once – damn, their world is tough), make friends, find a home, and glimpse into the future as to how it could end – with them, together.
What I love most about their relationship is what it’s created in fandom. I’ve made so many friends through them, including attending fan conventions. I’ve watched their on-tv relationship become real IRL (they moved to be near each other! They’ve run marathons together! Their wives are friends, too!). With the end in just a few weeks, I’m so grateful for what this fictional relationship has given me.
And when it ends, I hope it ends with them, together, doing the family business.
