Marissa Farrar is my Woman In Horror today! Marissa and I go back to the days of the old Vamplit site. Now Marissa is publishing her own books and doing well. She loves writing and really gets into her characters. On her website, http://marissa-farrar.blogspot.com/, she not only gives links and cross links to other writers, but also has advice about marketing, in particular the Kindle KDP Select pros and cons. Read the great things she has to say, and find the links to her books.


Marissa is not only able to write about the Dark side of things, but she has a great talent with finding the human and, at times, romantic elements involved with  what appears to be the worst of the worst of life. And of death.

 Here is some great news for readers wanting to explore Marissa's great Vampire tales, The Serenity Series :

 The fifth and final book in the 'Serenity' series:

On the morning of her thirteenth birthday, half vampire Elizabeth Bandores wakes to find she's crossed the boundary between childhood and becoming a young woman. Not only that, the sunlight makes her head pound, and her hearing and sense of smell are suddenly sharper.

A horrifying incident makes her wonder if she's a girl or a monster, and the world around seems to agree as a terrifying storm erupts over Los Angeles.

Serenity has no idea how to handle her rapidly changing daughter, but she knows one thing; Elizabeth needs her father around.

As Los Angeles is plunged into darkness and danger, life is about to get a lot worse, not just for Elizabeth but for Serenity and Sebastian too. A balance has been disrupted and the world as they know it may be about to change...

This is a super series and I highly recommend it for lovers of paranormal horror. Marissa tells a tale of the Dark while weaving humanity into the minds of the readers. She actually makes these Vampire stories appear to be true and you become a part of the story. Good news for you when you are reading, but not so good when you close your eyes and attempt to go to sleep. Gotta love that.

I also encourage you to read her other great tales, all of which are superb. Her story in the anthology Satan's Toybox: Demonic Dolls will put a chill in your bones. The Dark Road is another great story. Ah heck! They're all great!

From Marissa: 



"Perhaps my need to write about the paranormal came from a desire to try to explain the unexplainable, though sometimes the horror in our lives isn’t in the paranormal. It can be in the abusive husband (Alone), the child dying of an illness (Underlife) or a controlling regime (The Followers). Don’t expect to find tons of gore in my books, I prefer the subtlety of the psychological." Marissa Farrar
 

Bio:
Marissa Farrar is a multi-published fantasy and horror author. She was born in Devon, England, has travelled all over the world, and has lived in both Australia and Spain. She now resides in the countryside with her husband, two children, a crazy Spanish dog, two rescue cats and six hens and ten goldfish. Despite returning to England, she daydreams of one day being able to split her time between her home country and the balmy, white sandy beaches of Spain.
Even though she's been writing stories since she was small and held dreams of being a writer, her initial life plan went a different way.
In her youth, inspired by James Herriot, she decided to become a vet, and would regularly bring home new pets to her weary parents. Upon discovering her exams were never going to get her into a veterinary degree, she ended up studying Zoology. Once she completed her degree and realised she'd spent the majority trying to find time to write, she decided to follow her dream of being an author. Seven years later, she was published and two years after that she was able to say goodbye to the day job.
However, she's continued to collect animals!
Marissa is the author of four novels, including the dark vampire 'Serenity' series. Her fifth novel, Underlife, a dark fantasy set beneath the streets of London, will be published August 2012.
Her short stories have been accepted for a number of anthologies including, Their Dark Masters, Red Skies Press, Masters of Horror: Damned If You Don't, Triskaideka Books; and 2013: The Aftermath, Pill Hill Press.
