Reading & Book Signing
YA horror and dark fantasy author Maria Giakoumatos introduces the first book in her Infernal Symphony series, Midnight Waltz.
Over 100 years after Emily Mavro's gruesome death, rumors remain. It's said that on the night of the full moon, she rises in search of a soul to replace the one stolen from her.
After a tough rejection, Anthony's friends try to cheer him up with night of spooky fun exploring Mavro Manor. The adventure takes an unexpected turn when he meets Emily and she claims to have taken part of his soul. This awkward new bond attracts the attention of Eden, an eccentric group of demon-fighting paranormal investigators, as well as that of Lucifer's Disciples, the cult of dark mages holding Emily's soul captive.
Maria Giakoumatos has been interested in all things spooky since she was too small to ride the fun roller coasters in amusement parks. She probably would have become a paranormal investigator if she wasn't afraid of the dark, so she settled for just writing about spirits. Her family often took her to church as a child, so that may explain some things.
When she isn't writing her wacky stories, Maria spends her free time playing piano, enjoying video games, and sewing. She currently lives in Kent, Washington, with her parents, sister, and little green budgie named Kiwi.
