Let your imagination run wild and see where it will take you. In Meg Garcia’s first book “Six Keys” that is exactly what she did. A fan of all things horror, Garcia has crafted a series of short stories that take ordinary circumstances to an original place, blowing your mind with every turn of the page. Readers will find themselves on the edges of their seats, wondering what unexpected terror awaits them.
“I’ve always been a fan of the horror genre and wanted to create a series of stories that would hold the reader’s attention,” said Meg Garcia. “I wanted to create an emotional roller coaster ride for readers, building suspense until they were scared to look over their shoulder, so engrossed in the stories that the lines between reality and fantasy become blurred.”
Garcia began writing over the past year as an emotional outlet to help in the healing process after losing her fourth child in a premature birth. She found that the act of writing down her nightmares helped to ease the pain in a way that other therapies couldn’t.
“The first story in “Six Keys” is actually a retelling of a recurring nightmare I had after my child passed,” said Garcia. “It was so haunting that I had to put it on paper to be able to examine and understand it more clearly. That led to other scenarios in which I asked the question “what if” and it led me to some pretty crazy situations.”
Each story in “Six Keys’ is its own entity and yet as readers progress through the book they will begin to find threads that lead them to find a common connection in the end. Garcia is already working on taking a few of the characters that are introduced in her first book and expanding on them in their own future stories.
“I fell in love with some of the characters and I can’t wait to see where their stories take me,” said Garcia.
Garcia hopes that readers will be inspired to open the door to their own imagination as they read her stories. Writing has helped her find her voice again and she wants others who are experiencing pain and loss to know that there is hope, there is a light at the end of the suffering.
Meg Garcia is already planning several book signing events in her local book stores and plans to donate a portion of the profits to her local library. As a mother of three and caregiver for four additional children, Meg spends hours writing and reading to her children, helping them uncover their own stories through pictures and words.
