About the Author
C.R. Sztaba is the pen name of fifty-one year old Caroline Mabey. Caroline is an experienced writer/illustrator. She started off in children's books but like another great writer, Roald Dahl, she found she had the ability to scare and frighten people with her stories. Horror is her true love; she loves horror movies and longs to have a film script made from her work. Caroline first had her work published in 1986 by Bertie Books - Bluebell Publishing, under the name Carol Burt. 180,000 books were sold and the Co-Op food chain featured them in their stores in Northern England. Her inspiration for the books was her,then two year old, son Grant; something she takes great fun in reminding him to this day, even though he is in his thirties. Since her series of Bertie books she has spent the last twenty-one years concentrating on her career as an executive PA. However, she now feels it's the time to start showing her work again. Her artistic medium is mainly pencil/pastels and ink. Caroline recently had a children's book published called the Adventures of Rufus and Friends which she also illustrated. She hasn't been at Kensington Gore Publishing long but already she feels at home "It's a dream come true to sign for a publisher who is willing to help me develop my writing to the next level, also I get such a positive vibe from them and that inspires me to have more confidence in my writing." Her husband Steve, is now her manager and together they have set up Rufus Design Works Ltd. Here is a full list of her many children books on Amazon: http://amzn.to/1HPPjIh But it is her horror, love to scare and to write a story with a twist in the tale, that is her true calling. Her dream is to give nightmares and not many do it as well as she. She loves to see where her imagination takes her and how she can control her characters and think of more and more gruesome ways to kill or scare them. C.R. Sztaba is the new name in horror, a beautiful face, a lovely person but a warped, dark twisted mind.
