In your own words, please describe your book.

A young curandera, a medicine woman, intent on uncovering the secrets of her past is forced into a life-and-death battle against an evil Archbishop. Set in the mystic land of Aztlan, “The Unholy” is a novel of destiny as healer and slayer. Native lore of dreams and visions, shape changing, and natural magic work to spin a neo-gothic web in which sadness and mystery lure the unsuspecting into a twilight realm of discovery and decision.

 

What genre/genres does your book fall under?

The Unholy was awarded The International Book Award for New Age Fiction and the Pinnacle Book Award for Metaphysical Thriller, fashioning it as a tale of thrills and chill in the world of dark fantasy, horror, and paranormal thrillers!

 

Is this book part of a series?

The Unholy sets the tone and background for each of my upcoming novels, Dark Goddess to be published in 2015 and building on the mystic world of Aztlan; so, it’s not a series but it definitely is the foundation of all of the paranormal thrillers to come.

 

What was the inspiration behind your book?

For over thirty years I’ve treated patients traumatized by the nightmare of religious abuse, having been scarred by clergy emotionally and sexually. The Unholy tears through the veil of denial that hides pain. Nightmares then are unleashed in a person’s psyche and in the story. They turn a person’s world upside down and inside out so that healing can begin.

 

What led you into writing? Was it a lifelong ambition, or the result of some type of turning point in your life?

I’ve been writing thirty years, The Unholy my first supernatural thriller. Writing was and is a lifelong passion. Thing is, writing is chock full of turning points. So, the calling to be a writer takes you by force, shakes you up and won’t let go.

 

So far, what has been the greatest moment in your writing career?

Sunstone Press in Santa Fe caught the terror and total mind-blowing vibe of The Unholy and wanted to publish the controversial story and be part of the spiritual and emotional revolution it portends. This was fantastic, a truly great moment.

 

What are you working on now?

The Dark Goddess is about ready to hit the paranormal literary streets, a novel of love and whether bad love is better than no love at all. It’s set in mystic Aztlan, as is The Unholy. Dreams and visions and natural set the course of the spine tingling drama.
