Barbara Rein debuted her first book
series in fourth grade, The Adventures of Cassandra McGillicuddy in
Outer Space, complete with stick figures drawings. Admonished by
for doing book reports on her own books (and didn't she have chutzpah), she put writing aside for years while stories piled up in her head. One day she opened her laptop and out they poured.
She's now an award-winning and Amazon-best-selling author.
She lives with her husband and dachshund, traveling with a well-packed suitcase between New York and Florida.
Barbara writes strange, fantastical, and downright weird short
stories. Darkly brilliant tales that teeter on the edge of reality.
Reimagined nightmares concocted from a childhood diet
of macabre fairy tales and endless episodes of Twilight Zone.
She also writes chuckle-inducing personal essays inspired by the quirks and oddities that bounce her way.

Edward St. John Gorey (February 22, 1925 – April 15, 2000) was an American writer and artist noted for his illustrated books. His characteristic pen-and-ink drawings often depict vaguely unsettling narrative scenes in Victorian and Edwardian settings.
Music by Rafael Javadov "The Amelia Island Sun" and Alexei De Bronhe's "To Take Courage."
