About this author

Ms. Quijas was raised in Europe, a wonderfully diverse land filled with magically induced superstitions and the mystical beliefs of the old. The ancient tales told there, the basis to many of our fairytales, she learned were meant to frighten children. Strangely enough, all these beloved tales hold a semblance of truth in their dark depths.

The stories Ms. Quijas writes hold that essence, where the darkness of life borders on the edge of sunset and where the dead savor or regret those long and lonely hours until the sun rises on the horizon.

Where every soul has a chance at redemption….

On a quick note, Ms. Quijas does write the occasional contemporary romance and cookbooks.

Lisa Kessler HI Tamela -

Thanks for your interest in my new eBook release "Across the Veil"!!!

As an indie author, I couldn't make any of this happen without you! :)

message 31: by Ed

Ed Rambeau Thanks for accepting my friend request, Tamela. You seem like an interesting person, as well as quite a prolific and accomplished author, so feel free to tell me more about yourself and perhaps we can grow to become even greater friends. I, myself, am a singer/songwriter/actor who has recently turned author. My 2 top ten recordings were CONCRETE & CLAY (as a singer) and NAVY BLUE (as a writer)...both in the early 1960's. My first novel is an unusual murder mystery entitled: FORBIDDEN STEPS.

Regards, and have a great day, Ed
