Strings Binding My Doll is OUT!!

The third and last instalment of Girls & Ghosts before the short stories collection comes out, this is a story about a girl who never speaks up but has the strongest voice of all. I wrote it for Katrina’s victims, for the devastation the storm left behind…

The ebook is available at Amazon


Strings Binding my DollShadowmen wait around every corner to feed on her fear…

Stuck working at the family food truck for the summer, Sukhi cannot wait to rid herself from the eau de Cajun spices that haunt her every step – like the headaches that come with each storm. Storms that bring moving shadows that turn into men who want something from her.

Here’s her choice: family voodoo or lose the fight. Trinkets, Evil eye and dolls made of strings, Sukhi never believed in but now absorbs every bit of knowledge her grandmother gives. Yet it comes with a price. The old woman’s life essence drains little by little every time Sukhi learns something new.

And so begins the race against time to truly be part of the family before her grandmother’s last breath.

Stay spooked, peeps:)


Big News!!!

My writing cave is filled with voices but none my own. One belongs to Alyx, screaming vengeance and justice for her family; the other is quieter and belongs to Sukhi, who wants peace from the shadows following her. Two very different girls, two very different projects coming out soon…

Strings Binding my DollThe third installment of Girls & Ghosts is finally here!! After Katrina strikes, Sukhi sees shadows moving, faces out of dark corners, presences following her – and so begins her journey to save her family, even if it means losing the most precious part of it. With her grandmother’s voodoo, nothing can stop her.

To commemorate Katrina’s 10th anniversary, Strings Binding my Doll comes out August 29th, available exclusively on Amazon at 99 cents.

Whispered Echoes Cover Reveal

This project started as a young adult thriller two years ago, after a vivid nightmare stayed with me for months. So I drafted the story but realized something was missing: ghosts! Then, genres switched until it felt just right in my author’s heart, so here I present Whispered Echoes, the first book of an urban fantasy series coming out April 24th, 2015!!

After years of being haunted by her sister’s ghost, Alyx must choose between saving her friends or keeping the only family she loves.


Alyx lost everything in the fire, her family, her home, her freedom, but she discovered something, too: something lurking in the darkness. To protect her from harm, the ghost of her dead sister haunts the walls of the mental institution holding Alyx captive for the last 9 years. But even she can’t help when patients suddenly act possessed and turn against Alyx, who must find the strength and knowledge to rid them of evil and save their lives.

After a narrow escape from the institution, Transcend welcomes Alyx in with opened arms since she’s the daughter of a former star agent; her mother. They hope to teach her ghost seer abilities to help them keep the leaders of the world in check and give her a normal life. With her friends and newly acquired knowledge, Alyx prepares to battle against evil, but when facing her greatest enemy yet, everything she knows might not be enough to save the people she loves. No matter what her choices, the consequences will be paid in blood – maybe her own.

Women in Horror

We all have some bucket list written somewhere of things we’d like to accomplish before we die. Mine isn’t that long, which makes each entry even more meaningful. Like this one…

2015_February_ezine_cover_medSirens Call publishes a monthly eZine, and their February issue exclusively promotes the work of women in horror. For years I’ve been trying to get my stories in that particular anthology and this year it finally happened. Yes, KILL THE GIRL is among an amazing array of incredible work by some known and lesser known authors and I am thrilled!

Funny how I got to write this flash fiction: this was the beginning chapter of my next series coming out, Whispered Echoes. Back then, the genre was YA thriller and the inspiration came from a dream – actually, it’s a word for word capture of this nightmare I had, maybe 3 years ago. And now, it’s published in Sirens Call!!

So here is a FREE COPY of the anthology! It’s worth checking out, awesomeness oozes from the pages:)

Stay spooked, peeps.

Melancholy of Souls is OUT!!

There’s almost nothing like the rush of pressing PUBLISH on a new title – it comes this close to THE END, for me. Especially when a story turns out exactly like I want, with the voice it needs, and the message it has to share. My stories are never easy, and this one is not different.

luxuryThis is Melancholy of Souls, the second in the Girls & Ghosts novella collection. It’s about fighting for what’s right, how to keep love and the memories alive, and what to do once you reach the end of the road.

I wish it was different, but this is how I see the future: people will find a way to use ghosts even more than they are now (you know those shows? yeah, I’m talking about them: all evidence and no help) and that at some point, someone will be able to trap the essence of someone into a jar to test on it (all in the name of science, right? ugh).

So Melancholy of Souls is about what happens when the dead cannot rest in peace, and only a girl and her father do everything they can to save the soul of a loved one.



You know what they say, right? Leave a review, save an indie author!!

Stay spooked, peeps:)



Melancholy of Souls ARCs

Since my last call for honest reviews in exchange of free ARCs was such a success for Cursing at the Sky, I thought maybe Lady Luck would hit the second Girls & Ghosts novella!! So here is the official form for those of you who have time to read and review Melancholy of Souls on Amazon and/or Goodreads.


The ebook comes out February 3rd, it reads about 35-ish pages and could be classified as YA paranormal. Thank you for everyone who fills this form, your help is much appreciated:)

Stay spooked.

Melancholy of Souls Cover Reveal… just not yet

Well, 2015 is sure starting with a bang: I’ve begun writing a 10-book series called Whispered Echoes and another Girls & Ghosts novella is *almost* ready to come out! Second story from the collection, Melancholy of Souls will be available on February 3rd, but for those of you who can’t wait…

imagesDad says we have to do everything to save Mom’s soul, but I’m scared the price will be too high.

Soul Catchers scour the land looking for ghosts to sell on the black market. Amusement parks, mediums, haunted houses and religious cults will pay good money for them, especially when fresh and new. I never really cared about what they did until Mom died and one of those assholes snapped her up. Just this bright light shooting at her soul…

Now Dad’s mind is set on finding her on the lost souls trafficking circuit, but with each step we take death is only getting closer.

Cursing at the Sky is OUT!!

Cursing at the SkyHere we go, people – the first novella of the Girls & Ghosts series, Cursing at the Sky, is now available on Amazon only. It’s been called dark and haunting by some, creepy and sad by others, but all in all, I’m really pleased with it. This is a story that needed to be told.

Before the accident and the wheelchair, there were the echoes.

Drug abuse and alcohol are part of Ina’s life; just like the ghosts that haunt her nights. She draws their faces on her bedroom wall, hope this will quiet the echoes of their whispers.

Until the night a car accident changes her life forever.

Now sober and confined to a wheelchair for the rest of her life, Ina’s nights are still filled with haunting whispers as the ghosts beg her for help. Desperate for peace, she contemplates returning to the only way she knows to silence them, but her family take their own desperate measures and have her locked away.

Ina must learn what the spirits truly want, or be haunted by their echoes for the rest of her life.
