The Devil Queen

How my wife and I sold our souls to the Queen Anne Victorian we tried to save.

My Photo
Location: Crow Mountain, Arkansas, United States

Synopsis: This is a cautionary tale. A seriously disturbed couple find the charming, old ruin of a Queen Anne Victorian in Russellville, Arkansas, and buy it for $1.00. They tore the roof off, cut it in half, and had it moved to some land they owned sixteen miles away because they didn't know any better. Since then, they have hired and fired contractors, had all of their tools stolen, re-wired, re-plumbed, insulated, and essentially rebuilt the entire house. Their only problem is that after four years it still isn't finished. Now they are tired, broke, and wonder what in the hell it is they've done to themselves. And, it's haunted.

One of my coworkers steered me to this site, If you like any of the cartoons that appear on the Devil Queen, you can buy copies of them as postcards, t-shirts, prints, etc here.

Sorry for the limited selection. You have to sign up and pay for premium membership to get the full range of options. Since I have no idea if anyone would actually buy any of this stuff, I’m reluctant to spend money I don’t have. If there is something you’d like to buy, I can juggle the options around some (basically rotating the items around on demand).

And, if anyone has information on the Sims or Combs families (1830-1930) of eastern Kentucky or the Cherokee of Kentucky, please let me know. Email me at Thanks!
