Cora Pop has a life-long love for spinning stories, mostly from the yarn of the science-fiction and the fantastic. She’s acquired it by reading such masters as Edgar Allan Poe, Jules Verne, Jean Ray, Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu, Edgar Rice Burroughs – to name only a few.

In “real” life she has a Master’s degree in Aerospace Engineering, though she much prefers her imaginary life. She lives in Montreal, Canada, with her husband, their two young daughters, and a shy cat named Blues.

I actually have a bunch of stories that I could collect in a new book... but I'm concentrating all my efforts on writing and finishing a novel that I've playing with for quite some time now...

The Roman Empire and Lovecraftian horror... one of my perfect combinations... But, it's true that unfortunately I haven't finished it yet. That's because of -let's say- my chaotic approach to reading... I simply have too many books on my Kindle, too many books on my nightstand and in my handbag (I have yours with me, since it's small) and too many books from the library - and I want to read them all at the same time. Plus when I write I tend to keep at bay external influences... so I might read very little.
Yes, I know about those "smaller projects"... I'm trying to avoid them now as much as I can. Glad to hear that you're writing a new novel.
Nano? Never done it. I admire those who can do it and apparently it's beneficial but it's not my style of writing and I also don't have the time.(less)

Yes, it's happening in Montreal, July 6 to 8, 2018, and I'm going! (insert lots of fan girl giggles)

It all started about three weeks ago when my oldest daughter casually said "You know, Marc Sheppard is coming to Montreal.."


What? How? When? Really?! Really?

None other than Crowley, my favorite King of Hell, of Supernatural fame, is coming to Montreal!

Wait! It doesn't end here!

Then she said, "D... Read more of this blog post »

Woman In Black by Nick Redfern

This is a pretty cool book, actually. I was expecting only MIB type incidents, but other occurences with supernatural flavor are also recounted. The list of references is impressive and a starting point for further research.

These are my kind of stories!
Loved them and the voice, however for each one of them the ending felt way too rushed, frustratingly so...

message 1: by Ranga

Ranga God bless you!!!

I said a prayer for you today,
For you and those you love.
I prayed you’d feel God’s presence,
Feel His guidance from above.

I asked Him to keep you safe and warm,
To send an angel before you,
To make a path and light the way,
In whatever you might do.

I have put you in His loving care.
I trust Him with all my heart.
He’s faithful in His promises,
From you He will not part.

When tomorrow comes please tell me
That you said a prayer for me.
Friends praying for each other,
Is what our Father loves to see.
