Thank you, Chris.
Mari has been writing for years, since she was a teen. Not one of the thousands of poems has survived, as she would burn her notebooks. Years later, while pregnant with her first child she filled notebooks with silly children’s stories, which were also burned. Throughout the years, she’s burned a great deal of short stories, poems, and journals.
Until, one story began to haunt her two years ago. Two short stories later, the voice of Emily Romano wouldn’t leave; she’d get especially vocal at night preventing a good night’s sleep. In an attempt to silence Emily’s constant retelling of her life; Mari began to write late into the night, her right hand stiff and contorted into an unnatural form, scribbling in notebooks, until she had a vampire novel. Through the life changing events in Emily’s world, the story Awakened By Death was born and now awaits revisions.
