Vashti Quiroz-Vega is a writer of Fantasy, Horror, and Thriller. Since she was a kid she's always had a passion for writing and telling stories. It has always been easier for her to express her thoughts on paper.

She enjoys reading almost as much as she loves to write. Some of her favorite authors are Stephen King, Michael Crichton, Anne Rice, J.R.R. Tolkien, J.K. Rowling and George R. R. Martin.

She enjoys making people feel an array of emotions with her writing. She likes her audience to laugh one moment, cry the next and clench their jaws after that.

When she isn't building extraordinary worlds and fleshing out fascinating characters, she enjoys spending time with her husband JC and her Pomeranian Scribbles who is also her writing buddy.

I'm sure it's a combination of many things. The abundant religious and mythology books I've read that describe so many beautiful versions of heaven, like Valhalla, Elysium, Vaikuntha . . . Also, the many fantasy movies I've seen with places like Rivendell (Lord of the Rings), Tirion upon Túna, Pandora (Avatar), Journey to the Center of the Earth, and Legend I'm sure have contributed to my imagination. There are also many real-life places on earth that will leave you in awe. I think we authors have a special compartment in our brains that store all this information and when we sit down and write it's there for us to pick and choose from and embellish. Then we add a little bit of our spark to make it unique.(less)

Hello, everyone! Welcome to my blog!

 


Today I wrote a two sentence Horror/Romance story and a Haiku. I’m not sure if the combination of these can be called a Haibun. I also wrote a Tanka. I hope you enjoy.

The Fall of Lilith by Vashti Quiroz-Vega
"I have not read much of this genre before, so pardon my naiveté. I don't even know what to call it, but it's 'angel fantasy' where Judeo-Christian theology is reworked and retold as fantasy fiction. Oddly, when I read Fall of Lilith, I had just re..." Read more of this review »

“Don’t turn your face away.
Once you’ve seen, you can no longer act like you don’t know.
Open your eyes to the truth. It’s all around you.
Don’t deny what the eyes to your soul have revealed to you.

Now that you know, you cannot feign ignorance.
Now that you’re aware of the problem, you cannot pretend you don’t care.
To be concerned is to be human.
To act is to care.”
Vashti Quiroz-Vega

“Be kind to people and don’t judge, for you do not know what demons they carry and what battles they are fighting.”
Vashti Quiroz-Vega

“Words! What power they hold. Once they have rooted in your psyche, it is difficult to escape them. Words can shape the future of a child and destroy the existence of an adult.
Words are powerful. Be careful how you use them because once you have pronounced them, you cannot remove the scar they leave behind.”
Vashti Quiroz-Vega

“Writing is a lonely job. Having someone who believes in you makes a lot if difference. They don't have to makes speeches. Just believing is usually enough.”
Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft

“Kill your darlings, kill your darlings, even when it breaks your egocentric little scribbler’s heart, kill your darlings.”
Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft

“It's none of their business that you have to learn how to write. Let them think you were born that way.”
Ernest Hemingway

“I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.”
