"Spirit Sisters" and "Where Spirits Dwell" - Your Chance to Win!
Karina Machado was born in Uruguay and moved to Sydney, Australia with her family as a toddler, where she grew up hearing stories of her mother’s psychic gift, igniting a life-long curiosity about all matters supernatural.
She began her career in journalism as an editorial assistant at TIME magazine in 1994, and is now a senior editor at WHO magazine, where she’s always pitching spooky stories. She’s also obsessed with the Tudors of England, and has been known to dress up as Anne Boleyn, whose ghost she’s sadly never seen.
The Paranormal Guide has TWO of Karina’s books to give away!
A collection of true-life encounters with the supernatural based on first-hand experiences. In SPIRIT SISTERS you’ll meet Australian women of all ages who share their very personal encounters with the supernatural.
From a high-flying banking executive whose life changed for ever after a visit from a bizarre, winged entity, to a mother of seven who was held and soothed by her husband five days after she’d buried him, to the woman who lost most of her family in one car accident, this book is heart-breaking, inspiring, scary and comforting.
Where Spirits Dwell
WHERE SPIRITS DWELL unearths the creaking, spine-chilling moments when ghosts appear in suburbia. Alongside infamous Australian haunted homes, like Junee’s Monte Cristo Homestead and Annandale’s haunted Abbey, WHERE SPIRITS DWELL also takes readers inside other haunted dwellings including schools, pubs and even shopping centres.
Along with these real-life experiences, Machado also investigates the haunted house in history, literature and popular culture in this creepy, intriguing book.
