Women in Horror Month 2016 – Featured Author: Lisa Vasquez @unsaintly #WiHM7

Lisa Vasquez


Born and raised in Chicago, Lisa’s love for horror began at a young age. Her father had a deep love for horror movies and science fiction, and took a keen interest in special effects. So that Lisa and her siblings could enjoy the movies with him he’d sit up late at night taking on the painstaking task of “editing” the explicit adult scenes. Afterwards, they’d sit together and discuss the magic of how the effects were achieved. When other kids her age dressed in cartoon-kid-friendly costumes for Halloween, Lisa created homemade costumes that paid homage to classics like “Bride of Frankenstein”. Thanks to her creative parents (her mother also having a talent for artistic expression such as homemade crafts, sewing, and interior decorating) Lisa was encouraged to read, write and to act in homemade skits to entertain themselves, family and close friends.

Lisa currently resides in Katy, Texas. She is the Publisher’s Liaison for the Horror Writer’s Association, and is also the founder of the HWA’s Houston chapter. She is the owner of Stitched Smile Publications, a small independent publishing company, and is the author of The Unsaintly Chronicles, The Unfleshed, and several other short stories.

The Anti-God (The Unsaintly Chronicles Book 1)

LisaVasquez_TheAntiGodThough she was born to a noble family, Isabel Augustus had shown a love for piety, humility and servitude at a very young age.

When Isabel’s simple actions as a mortal catch the eye of God, who showers her in his blessings and attentions, Lucifer’s jealousy rears its ugly head once more. The age old contention between father and son results in a tug-of-war over her very soul when Lucifer begins to show her his own attention. They will soon find out that there is another who seeks out the soul of their precious Isabel. Will Isabel’s faith be enough to save her and those she loves? Or will she give up her immortal soul to keep the end of the world at bay?
