Synopsis: "Corrine De Winter creates magic with her words. She's a storyteller who does much more than tell a story--she weaves life into her characters--and real emotion into the reader. These stories are keepers--you might well want to pick them up again and again."
-Heather Graham, author, PHANTOM EVIL & "KREWE of HUNTERS Series
“Corrine De Winter is a virtuoso of forlorn Romanticism.”
–Thomas Ligotti, author of THE NIGHTMARE FACTORY
"A beautiful, exotic dreamworld exists in De Winter's writing.." –
William Peter Blatty, author of THE EXCORCIST
"De Winter's stories have a great quality to them- Saki's creepy succinctness mixed with the epiphanic resonance of Dubliners-era Joyce. Quite unique."
-James Sclavunos ( Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds)
"Reading De Winter's work makes me a better writer. This is seriously good writing!"
- Tom Monteleone, author of IDIOT'S GUIDE to WRITING a NOVEL, and many others!
