MARIJA ELEKTRA RODRIGUEZ - WOMAN IN HORROR!






Marija Elektra Rodriguez is my Woman In Horror today! She is another one of the great Australian authors included in my Women In Horror. I particularly enjoy the historical fiction added in to her horror and the way she is able to blend back-story with the present. Truly superb. This is not an easy task to master. There is a fine line to be walked with presenting the story while adding in just enough of everything else at the right time. Marija walks that line well.

Masquerade, a collection of Marija's short stories is the best way to get to know this author. All the stories are superb. Go to the free sample on Amazon and you will see what I mean.

Book Description

September 13, 2013
Masquerade & Other Stories is a collection of macabre and erotic tales incorporating the myths of the Ancient Greeks.

Gaetano and Emilio are in search of La Dolce Vita—wealth, fame, and beautiful women. They encounter the Contessa di Aubria, a mysterious woman with a dark bloodline and penchant for erotica. Will she fulfill their desires, or bring about their destruction?
4.0 out of 5 stars Worthy of Anne Rice or Poe December 20, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed all of the stories in this collection. The writing reminds me of Anne Rice and the stories are worthy of Edgar Allan Poe. There is a deep darkness and disturbed nature to some of the stories, which was a bit much for me. The Anatomy of Insomnia is a finely written tale, complex and the ending is a little ambiguous. The Bacchae was the best written piece of the collection.



What Lies Beneath is an anthology where Marija has a great short story titled Outside Eyes:

Book Description

What lies beneath brought out a whole range of themes from talented writers as they interpreted it both literally and metaphorically. The stories are wildly different, every one of them worthy of their place in this anthology.

If any of them make you wonder just what lies beneath… your home, your work place, your vacation resort… then it will have half done its job. If you like reading it, as you should, then it will have done its job.

Enjoy!



Another great anthology is Bloody Ghost Stories. Ah, these are the best kind. Marija's tale Lazaretto is superb. No surprise to me.


Book Description

May 13, 2014
Bloody Ghost Stories is sure to give you the chills. From fields to twin ghosts to downright nasty spirits, you'll find it all contained within these pages. This is an anthology of the bloodiest stories about ghosts ever imagined. So go ahead... wait until it gets dark and grab your favorite blanket and enjoy! You won't want to stop until you reach the back cover.


Amazon bio:

Marija grew up in a delicatessen, with a multi-ethnic family, where pickling cabbage and knife throwing were taught at an early age. She would scribble stories on butcher's paper which would then be passed on to unsuspecting customers when they received their groceries.
Marija has a degree in Economics from the University of Queensland and has completed postgraduate studies in this field. She has also completed studies in Literature and Classical Greek History. She has worked as a foreign currency trader, economic analyst, and history tutor.

As her Amazon bio states, stay away from Marija in a knife fight. Marija Elektra Rodriguez is a Woman In Horror!
