Superstition Combined with Psychology in Thriller Book


Childhood would not be complete without myths, folklore, and scary superstitions. Horror fiction author Carlotta Holton made use of the superstitions she grew up with in creating a collection of twenty-four terrifying short stories. Her book, Grave Matters, was displayed at LitFire Publishing's booth during the AJC Decatur Book Festival, held at 101 East Court Square in Decatur, Georgia, from September 1 to 3, 2017.

Growing up with a superstitious family paved the way for Carlotta Holton's book. She incorporated the stories from her father and the superstitions she learned while traveling around the world in her writing. Some of the short stories in Grave Matters involved tormented ghosts, a macabre ragman, and a puppeteer and his diabolic marionettes. The stories were mixed with psychology and features characters constantly at war with good and evil.
