Christine Sutton is my Woman In Horror today! The picture above is not Christine's picture. It is the picture of her super fan-tab book Prodigal Son, which I will have some exciting news about soon. I'm not telling you now. The suspense will have to fester in your soul. Bad me.

Christine is a mystery lady. She is on a path different from the one she traveled in the past. You will notice there is no blog post above; neither are there pictures of her - I happen to have some, but I will not share them here because she obviously, for some reason, does not want them bandied about. Also, there is no bio on her Amazon or Facebook pages. There are some new things going on in her life that mostly say, "Let's not shout everything from the rooftops." Fair enough. I can respect that.

However, I can let her own words from her many books tell a tale in itself, and, since all authors are the products of what they write, and their books are part of the soul of the author, the picture is painted. In Christine's case, we're talking the work of the masters.

Prodigal Son talks of psychopaths and serial killers, and is a true psychological thriller. But she also writes of ghosts, zombies, dark fairy tales, killers, websites running amok, and the paranormal. There is also a charming tale of a long elevator ride which could very well be with Christine's protagonist and the Devil. My, my.

How about soul-eating entities, nasty bugs, creepy twins, and the world of magic? Have you had enough yet? Wrong answer. She also has stories of evil witches, vampires, werewolves, and dark forests. Who doesn't love creepy tales of dark forests? Raise your hands. Just what I thought: no hands are raised.

I know Christine as a wonderful lady who writes some chilling, in your face horror. The reviews below will tell you that. Go to her Amazon pages and get acquainted with her. You still won't see her picture, but you'll get a glimpse of who she is as a person.

Christine Sutton, my mysterious lady of suspense and terror, is A Woman In Horror!

Four Ghosts by James Ward Kirk Fiction, Paula D. Ashe, William Cook and Murphy Edwards (Oct 8, 2013)

Book Description

November 12, 2013
Everyone has a seen a ghost. Mostly, they scare the hell out of us. This collection of four novellas by some of the most prominent writers in the horror genre will scare the hell out of us, too, maybe even more so as these ghosts have a mission: redemption. Grab your friendly ghost to sit with you as you read, because you're going to need someone in your corner. But it still might not help.

5.0 out of 5 stars Horror + Humor + Creativity = Success October 19, 2013
Format:Paperback|Amazon Verified Purchase
If you like old-school horror, with a twist of well-placed humor, this is the book for you. All four stories are extremely enjoyable, but Paula D. Ashe's Mater Nihil stands out. With the extremely well-written characters and her creativity with the paranormal/occult (" husband is a terrifying fallen angel human hybrid thing that's been blessed with some extremely horrifying powers by his father-in-law.") this could have easily developed into a full-length novel. Look forward to reading more from these authors!


Prodigal Son by Christine Sutton and Jaime Johnesee (Mar 7, 2013)

Book Description

January 8, 2013
"In Prodigal Son, Christine Sutton has penned a tight, brutally honest portrait of a psychopath reminiscent of Theodore Sturgeon's 'Some of Your Blood'. This dark descent into the broken mind of Timothy Robert Shively will send chills down your back. Every word rings true, and every page is dark with menace. Do yourself a favor and pick this one up right now. You can thank me later."
-Joe McKinney, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Inheritance and Dead City

Timothy Shively is a very bad man. Under the thumb of his abusive mother, and trapped in the shadow of his absent father, Timothy embarks on a bloody, violent journey to find his place in the world.
Was he born this way, or is he the product of his nightmarish upbringing? Decide for yourself as Timothy searches for his father as well as his own identity in this raw psychological thriller.
What secrets will be revealed upon the return of the prodigal son?

Warning: This book contains scenes of relatively graphic violence. Please use good judgement when purchasing.

 5.0 out of 5 stars WOW!! January 9, 2013

Format:Kindle Edition
Christine Sutton has written a disturbing tale of what can happen when a son follows in his fathers footsteps. Only in this story, father is a serial killer. The story is well written and I could not put it down. I had to find out what would happen next. The characters are well written and Christine captured the very demented minds perfectly. This story is graphic so not for the tender reader. It certainly kept my attention and was glad to see the outcome. Characters you love to hate!

Harvest of the Dead (Zombie Armageddon) by Ian Woodhead and Christine Sutton (Jan 12, 2014) 

 Book Description

January 12, 2014
The infection has made its way across the ocean and landed in the U.S.
The small town of Greendale Falls, VT has taken precautions to stop the infection, but somehow it has made its way into their sleepy little town.
Battle zombies, hunters and worse in the latest installment of the ZA series!
5.0 out of 5 stars Harvest of the Dead January 26, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This was my first time reading either of these authors and I loved it. The plot was gripping and the characters well realised. The zombies are different from the usual groaning, shuffling, mindless monsters, which made them much more frightening.

I couldn't put the book down as I needed to know what happened next.

What a great book. I look forward to reading more from these authors.


Kayla, Enchanted: Dark Fairy Tales with a Modern Twist by Christine Sutton (Apr 12, 2012)

Book Description

April 12, 2012
Kayla Burkheart has had a hard life. When she finally decides to clean up her act and get her life back on track, she believes that she has it all. A new job, a man that she loves, and finally, a feeling of peace.
As she embarks on a journey down a California highway, she finds herself being trailed by a menacing figure in a black car. This is only the beginning.
She finds out that there is more to her life than she ever imagined possible.
Join her on her journey through four tales, tinged with fairy tale magic and filled with werewolves, vampires, witches (good and bad) and all other manner of magic and monsters.
With nods to Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White, The Three Little Pigs, Hansel and Gretel and a few more, these are not the fairy tales you read as a child. Kayla's life is sometimes dark, often frightening and always, enchanted.

This book contains some language and adult situations. Not recommended for children.

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING!!! August 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
RED: In this first chapter of the book you are introduced to a cute character, Kayla, who is not quite the dumb idiot bimbo in most horror films who goes down the dark alley alone but she is not far off!!
Her inquisitiveness and personality seem to get her into all sorts of trouble... and this is only the beginning!
Christine Sutton slowly builds up the suspense, with hints at what might be, but then does a nice little twist at the end!

SNOW: This second chapter carries on the Kayla saga, can things get any worse for this more girl, well it seems, yes!
If the first tale incorporated the Little Red Riding Hood fairy tale this one makes you giggle with the references to Snow White, complete with little people! and wonderful fairy tale ending... sort of!
Very clever writing, introducing some great new characters with a dash of magic and fairy dust.

LET ME COME IN: The next instalment of Kayla's mad life does not disappoint.
Hysterical & horrendous nods to The Three Little Pigs; has almost put me off bacon sandwiches, almost!
Bit more gore in this one and plenty more magic to explain the wonderful details of a strange, warped fairy tale world!
Ms Sutton has excelled herself with the details in this fantastic modern day twisted tale, adding another layer of fantasy and a beautiful new character that you find yourself already in love with.

GRACE IN THE DARK: Such a shame that Ms Sutton has decided this is her final instalment of the Kayla series as they are so enjoyable, but she does tidy up all the loose ends and leaves you feeling very full (mostly of giggles and love).
This book dives into the magical world once again, but further along their life lines, we now have the little baby Grace as a little girl....and a cute one at that!
We meet old friends and new enemies with a clever twist of humour and Grimm style horror.
A brilliant tale that is funny, gore laden and exceptionally clever!

5.0 out of 5 stars spooky revenge October 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
A short story of revenge that gave me a little shudder.

Christine Sutton managed to make the hairs on my arms stand up as she explains about the poor chap who loses time to a website; no, it wasn't Facebook!

He soon learns the true meaning of revenge and the consequences of his apathy.

Such are the descriptions that I wondered what was on fire in my own kitchen!

For such a perfectly timed lunch break read this really gave me the spooks; no more free codes for me thanks.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Interesting Play In Mythology December 16, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Amazon Verified Purchase
Christine Sutton is an independent author. She has a few stories out on Amazon Kindle and right now they are free. However, by the time this review gets published the stories may have a price on them again. According to what I have read on Ms. Sutton she is a custom cake decorator who lives in Central California. I have only read one of this woman's short stories and I am intrigued to read more from her.

The Walker is a story about an entity that eats souls. He walks on in life devouring all he can when he grows hungry. He eventually gets a surprise on his trek when he tries to devour one soul that he possibly should have stayed away from. The story draws its basis on mythology and is an interesting read.

The story is a tale of good versus evil and it is fast paced. Sutton is definitely an author to keep watch of. I have only read this one story so far and am interested in reading her other works. I suggest getting her story "The Walker" for your kindle as well. It is definitely worth it to have her work in your kindle library.

This was certainly a creepy short story. Only took a few minutes to read but kept me awake, thinking it over.

Very simple but effective tale. I always thought there was a creepy factor with twins and it's refreshing to see this being utilised. (I have twin daughters and they have freaked me out on more than one occasion)

Another terrific tale from a Mistress of Horror. :)
