About this author

Kirsten Weiss worked overseas for nearly fourteen years, in the fringes of the former USSR and deep in the Afghan war zone. Her experiences abroad not only gave her glimpses into the darker side of human nature, but also sparked an interest in the effects of mysticism and mythology, and how both are woven into our daily lives.

Now based in San Mateo, CA, she writes paranormal mysteries, blending her experiences and imagination to create a vivid world of magic and mayhem.
Kirsten has never met a dessert she didn’t like, and her guilty pleasures are watching True Blood and drinking good wine.

When shall we three meet again
In thunder, lightning, or in rain?

Second Witch:
When the hurlyburly’s done,
When the battle’s lost and won.

– from Shakespeare’s Macbeth

There’s a change in the air, autumn is on its way, and so is one of my favorite holidays: Halloween!

This year I visited New Orleans to on a Hoodoo Detective research quest, touring its crumbling cemeteries and lively clubs. The city is a mystic soup of music, fun and food, the home of vampires and voodoo, ghosts and gumbo.
