Cynthia Austin lives in Northern California with her
husband, two boys, and Olde English Bulldogge named Count
Dogula. They love all things horror, gothic, and Victorian
which prompts her friends to dub them as “The Adams

her degree in Eng

Before, I always felt alone in this aspect of my life, as no one around me shared my obsession over books, but now the doors to a whole new world have opened. Nothing makes me happier than to receive an email from a reader who wants to discuss my book... or any book for that matter.(less)
