About the author:
From a young age, Rebekah Armusik was a gifted and dramatic writer. By the tender age of ten, she was writing poetry and short stories that were inspired by her grandmother's tales of Slavic folklore. Even then, her poetry was rich and romantic, and it was soon apparent that Rebekah had a unique insight into the human condition - along with a style all her own. Surrounded by a culture with rich tradition, colorful family members, and a mother who was also a talented author, there was never a lack of inspiration or encouragement.
Following private school, she attended King's College, where she majored in literature. Shortly after graduation she began writing Memoirs of a Gothic Soul. At first, the novel was more of an autobiographical project that centered on her eccentric Slovak family and her experiences in Northeast Pennsylvania, but soon her grandmother's stories of vampirism became the focus of the book. Before long, Rebekah's love of the romantic vampire began to change the direction of the novel and the series. At the same time, Rebekah met Eric Armusik, a romantic realist painter who had just returned from studying in Italy. The courtship was fast, and after several dates, the couple announced they planned to marry. And so, for love, the series was put on hold.
After several years remodeling their Victorian home and starting a family, Rebekah went back to work on her novels. Working from the original layout of thirteen books, she began feverishly re-working the tale. In August 2010, Memoirs of a Gothic Soul was released on the independent publishing label Lady Noir to great reviews, and she quickly established a loyal fan base eager to read more. Her second novel, Mariposa, opened to rave reviews on Halloween 2011, and the pressing sold out in the first week. In 2012, Rebekah will do the unthinkable by putting out two releases in one year. You can expect Book 3: Lucifer Rising this May 2012, and Book 4: Vlkolak King on her usual Halloween release date in 2012. And the story gets even better...
Rebekah has been featured in numerous publications including The Weekender, Victorian Homes Magazine, Old House Journal, The Reading Eagle, and the Republican Herald.
