Mary Castillo

It is no wonder that Mary Castillo writes paranormal mysteries and romance. She grew up in a haunted house. Her mom once found her in the closet talking to the nicest lady who had a daughter and two sons. Mary was the only person in the closet and the more questions her mom asked, the plainer it was that her then three-year-old child described the previous (and deceased) resident of their house!

Mary grew up in the same town as the psychic detective of her paranormal mystery series, Dori Orihuela. She even "gave" Dori her dream home, a three-story white Edwardian mansion. And she made her a tough, smart robbery detective because Mary is not cop material!

With her degree in history, Mary loves to find and share untold histories such as bootlegging women and no-nonsense World War II era nurses. Her background is in marketing, public relations, and journalism, proving that yes, you can make a living as a writer! Combining her love of the paranormal with historical, Gothic fiction is a dream come true. Mary now writes the books she loves to read--chilling, suspenseful Gothic mysteries with sexy heroes and courageous heroines. And readers do too: Lost in the Light was a finalist in the Daphne Du Maurier Award for Excellence in Paranormal Mystery.

However, her current home in Orange County, California is not haunted. But she and her husband make up for that by celebrating each anniversary by going on a ghost tour. They started this trend when they honeymooned in Salem, Massachusetts during Halloween!
When not thinking up creative ways to kill characters, you'll find Mary knitting while reading historical novels and biographies, or her favorite authors. She is a member of Orange County Romance Writers of America chapter. She loves farmer's markets, afternoon tea, and obscure historic landmarks. With her husband and son, she's hiking, camping and having the adventure of a lifetime!
