Editorial Reviews

Review

"Oubliette is a cleverly told tale and trek through history where the past and present collide. If you come out the other end of this book with all of your fingernails intact, you are a better woman than I." -Lisa Goich, Author, 14 Days: A Mother, A Daughter, A Two-Week Goodbye "Strong characters. Real relationships. Deep terror. A journey through time where the fears are not only of monsters, but of shadows inside ourselves." -Justina Walford, horror film writer and producer, Wildworks Productions "Great, now I'm afraid of bunnies." -Sheena Metal, Host, Haunted Playground, LA Talk Radio "Oubliette is a mosaic of interwoven tales that are unexpected, fresh, and deliciously twisted. There are plenty of thrills and chills to be found here." -John Stuart Wildman, Director, The Ladies of the House

About the Author

Vanta M. Black, author of Oubliette-A Forgotten Little Place, enjoys uncovering the dark mysteries of our Universe. In addition to writing, she enjoys traveling to provocative places and studying all things esoteric. Vanta M. Black calls on her own experiences with entities known as "shadow people", and their horrifying late-night visitations, to masterfully deliver Oubliette. Though she once dismissed them as simply night terrors, Black was forced to question what the "things" that visited her were, after someone else witnessed one preparing to attack her as she slept. Oubliette is also inspired by the real oubliette at Leap Castle, the famed most-haunted castle in Ireland. In the 1920's it was emptied out, and the remains of over 150 different bodies were removed with wheelbarrows. A worker found a pocket watch in the remains, and it dated from the mid-1800s. This revealed how very recent the oubliette had claimed victims. After hearing about Leap Castle's oubliette, Black imagined there must be a myriad of forgotten stories behind each soul who met their fate within it. This thought became the inspiration for writing Oubliette-A Forgotten Little Place. Not only did Black visit Leap Castle, she also made jaunts to many French chateaux and the Paris Catacombs for research. Other inspirations include legends from the Knights Templar, the French Revolution, the Reformation, the Holy Roman Empire, and the Black Death. Black has degrees in English, communication and art. She resides in Southern California with her husband and pug-mixes, and spends her time in support of causes that empower women and advance science and technology.
