GEORGINA MORALES - WOMAN IN HORROR!

Georgina Morales is my Woman In Horror today! Georgina and I share a rather unique distinction. Not only do we love to write horror, but we are also fascinated with science. Ah, but knowing about the mysteries of the sciences gives us much to draw upon and is certainly a huge plus and not a stumbling block by any means. Add in her fantastic imagination, and we have some great breeding grounds for horror to the max.

While Georgina loves the greats in horror: King, John Saul, Poe, and others, her Latin American culture adds something special to her tales. Every culture has certain legends and tales bandied about from the beginning of one's childhood, and there is such a wealth within all the Latin American countries. Just as I am knowledgeable about the legends of my Grandmother's Cherokee blood, and my Grandfather's Scot blood and the tales of the sea he used to tell me as I sat spellbound listening to his every word, Georgina has absorbed the best of her culture. I have spent time in Mexico, South America, and Central America, and have heard many stories told by the locals. Oh the horrors jumping through my skin back then. But I never forgot the stories. Georgina is fortunate in having experienced that part of her because I feel too many of us living in the United States are out of touch with the great mysteries around us. We live in a ho-hum existence of mediocrity and need an author of Georgina's stature to wake us up and tell us about the mysteries in front of our own eyes.

But she does not have to be surrounded by the ghosts and legends of her youth. Georgina lives in New England now and still pulls stories out from abandoned buildings and dark woods. She has progressed from her roots as an M.D. and is a master of the paranormal now. Let's face facts: she has the gift, that of absorbing a story from her surroundings, relying on what has been there for years, things many others do not even know reside there. She is relatively new to the horror writing profession, but her mastery at the craft is already present.

Georgina Morales is a Woman In Horror!

Isolation by Azar, Alex, Garrison, AA, Press, Post Mortem and Morales, Georgina (Dec 26, 2010)

Book Description

December 26, 2010
Being alone, it's something that most of us feel at one time or another. Isolation and the sense of being separated from the rest of the world is one of the most terrifying of emotions for many of us. The terror of being alone is embedded into our makeup from the dawn of time and mankind's entry into the world.

This collection of stories speaks to the many facets of isolation, of being alone and what it does to us. The horrors that can spring out of that darkness we are warned to not venture into is as infinite as the darkness itself. 

Perpetual Night by Morales, Georgina (May 16, 2013)

Book Description

May 16, 2013
TORTURED BY NIGHTMARES

HAUNTED BY ANCIENT BEINGS

WHEN SECRETS ARE UNEARTHED, THERE’S ALWAYS A PRICE TO PAY.

It started in the woods surrounding a sleepy town of New England where a primeval creature hides behind the tombstones of an abandoned cemetery. Lilibeth has seen the feminine figure many times. It stalks her dreams. At 15, Lilibeth is dealing not only with the normal problems of adolescence, but with nightmares she can’t understand. In them are monsters lurking in the shadows that reek of decay. All but the golden-haired woman. Older than time, she has an unearthly glow and even though she never speaks, the teen senses the presence is wicked.

For weeks, Lilibeth dismissed the ominous dreams as her brain’s way to work through the anxiety of growing up. After all, she has spent the last six years trying to come to terms with her father’s untimely demise. Her overworked mother has done everything she can to help, still, spending most evenings eating dinner alone makes the teen yearn for the family life she knew.

Lilibeth tries to understand her mother’s plight. Sarah's long hours at the hospital and her efforts for quality moments together; it used to make sense to the teen. Not anymore, something is evolving inside her, something she can neither comprehend nor control.

At least she has Alex. Her best friend, he has been by her through the worst of times, becoming her personal Jiminy Cricket and turning her into a better person. Known as an excellent student and a great brother and son, he is the perfect ally for someone like Lilibeth, learning to tame her darker side.

But she is losing control over the world around her.

Every night she wakes up screaming, drenched in sweat, and terrified to go back to sleep. Her feelings are running loose too; more intense than ever, like the stupid crush she’s developed for Alex. They used to be able to talk about everything and now when she needs his company the most, her infatuation is breaking them apart. Especially because he is interested in another girl. And she is angry all the time! Sometimes it feels like a lifetime of held back emotions have fallen on her at once.
As the dreams get darker and the creatures more menacing, Lilibeth’s struggle to sleep reaches a peak and the strain shows. Questions torment the youngster as much as the visions in her dreams. She’s thin, frail, and has barely slept in a month. When her mother decides to intervene, the teen is faced with the possibility of being committed. Insanity is not an alien concept in her family, could she be the latest victim?

Sarah has her own secrets, like the truth behind her husband’s death and the legacy of her bloodline. Hers is a long lineage with its fair share of blemishes, among which insanity might be the most benevolent. But even at her worst, Lilibeth is Sarah’s world. There is no risk she wouldn’t take for the youngster. The struggle is weighting heavy on Lilibeth and could prove too much for her psyche, but helping her is not an easy task. There are so many restrictions, not the least of which is the teen’s belligerence. She is pulling apart and Sarah fears what will happen if her daughter chooses the wrong path.

When the visions hound Lilibeth even awake, everything comes to a collision. Are the figures crossing between the worlds in a desperate attempt to deliver their message? Or has Lilibeth fallen pray to her blood? Can love be stronger than destiny?

Follow Lilibeth as she searches for the truth in a world where the here and the beyond get tangled, and every clue holds the key to new horrors. Where reality is abstract and dreams too real. Where knowledge is dangerous and uncovering a secret can threaten more than her sanity, her life.



4.0 out of 5 stars An Interesting Read, May 8, 2012
This review is from: Perpetual Night (Paperback)
Morales creates a very interesting tale in Perpetual Night. The dream sequences are at times chilling and the end takes a fresh approach that makes the story well worth the read. This book should appeal to wide range of readers from the younger seeking to challenge themselves to those wishing for a quick well-written read. Check it out!
