Meet the Author

Rebecca Carter's first self published collection of short stories Moonlit Daydreams was able to reach number 30 on the Kindle Horror-> Occult category through fervent self promotion and support from online horror communities who were taken by the originality in style and ideas. She introduced the first Zombie Raptor in media with this collection's main story Of Children. She has since released the well received Sunlit Nightmares as well as had inclusions in multiple anthologies. Rebecca has published poetry and fiction under alternate pen names and is looking forward to continuing writing as herself in the thriller and suspense genres, as well as leaning heavily on horror.

Good evening constant reader. In a nutshell, if you like off the beaten path, into the darkened woods stories, that are short, to the point and visceral, exposing an interesting mind at work, then this book is for you. Rebecca Carter has carved out a nice little niche for herself in the story telling world. She spins five tales of oddness, that seem to begin out of no where, and end up right where she wanted you the reader, to be. Story first is "Of the Children", a fevre dream of a story, about a scientist and her creation gone horribly wrong. You see, Dr. Shaver and her science figured out how to make raptors ultra intelligent, and they were used to replace our military. Yes, you read that right. Raptors...as in the dinosaur, not the bird. Then came the outbreak...and chaos as the entire world is affected...and infected...including the raptors. And the raptors are smart enough to know they were used and are coming home to their creator. Story second is "Hunger". We are the silent observer to Sarah's workaday world of frustration - working customer support is always fun, but there's something not quite right about Sarah. We follow her through a night out, and an incident which results in Sarah getting sick and having to resort to pig's blood and milk to feel better. An unfortunate tale...where Mike meets Sarah and will wish he never had. Sarah isn't like everyone else - she's a vampire. Story the third is "Midnight Strolls", where we the reader get to accompany Honna out on her prowls for prey. We have kidnapping and brutality from the female perspective, and it gets quite twisted and nasty. It seems chloroform is a girl's best friend...as well as a taser, shackles, knives, and that perennial favorite, duct tape. Oh and did I mention the gas soaked cotton balls down the throat? I could go on, but you really should read this nasty nice piece of work for yourself. Story the fourth is "Love", where one man's show of love, true love and caring, is one woman's one way ticket. Story the fifth is "Special", the tale of one "special" young woman and her painful transformation into a werewolf. Think the transformation scene in the film An American Werewolf in London, times 10. Carter's detail makes you feel precisely what's happening. Five little gems, short and to the point, but full of good writing. It's like you happened to stop by and pause a moment and look into the lives of these characters at very precise points in time and what points they are. These are fully realized shorts, don't misunderstand. But if these are the sprouts from the seeds of Carter's imagination, good grief, imagine what the forest would be like!
