4.0 out of 5 stars Pick this up if you dare. December 12, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Loves, Myths and Monsters is a collection of eerie, suspenseful tales that I recommend. The tales include stories about the Chupracabra, a serial killer family, mermaids, werewolves and many other mystical creatures interacting with humans. This book includes a range of characters to frighten you. Each story will leave you on the edge of your seat. Pick this up if you dare.

‘Welcome to Anna’ tells the story of a Chupracabra following a teenage girl from country to country.

In ‘The Hunter’s Bride’, the reincarnation of a prominent citizen is wreaking havoc on the town.

In ‘Moon People’, a young girl must choose between her mermaid family and the boy she loves.

‘The Pack’ reminded me of the werewolf version of Twilight.

Something mysterious is causing bee attacks in ‘The Bidding Apiologist’.

A demon and small town have reached a horrible understanding in ‘The Agreement’.

A scientist braves time travel to try to save the woman he loves, even though they have never met, in ‘For the Love of Ginnie’.

The local police have a challenge fighting the Mothman in ‘Is It Only a Myth’.

A young cowboy is hired to break a wild horse, but he soon realizes the advertisement was a little misleading in ‘The Proposition’.

In ‘The House on Shady Lane’, nobody is safe from this family of serial killers.

People seem to think a college mascot is responsible for some strange deaths in ‘Love’s Curse.

These stories offer something for everybody, no matter if you like folk tales, fairy tales or myths. No two stories were the same, but they all offered their own share of spine-chilling terror.

‘The Agreement’ and ‘The House on Shady Lane’ were my favorites.

This is a book that might make you leave your light on.

More About the Author

For as long as I can remember, I have had an artistic flare-whether that be for writing, painting, sewing or drawing. I recall as a child how much I enjoyed drawing. The writing came later. My seventh grade English teacher was Mrs. Henderson-a young mother and wife. She gave us a writing assignment and after gifting me with an A+ told me I should consider writing as a career. She meant as a journalist. I did not take her advise and become a journalist (one of my many misgivings), but continue to write.
