1 BOOK LOVERS WOULD LIKE TO THANK GARY FOR ALLOWING ME TO FEATURE HIM DURING THE HALLOWEEN HORROR FEST FEATURES HAVE A LOOK INTO GARY'S MIND
Gary Starta's Bio -
Gary Starta began writing articles as a newspaper reporter many years before he took the plunge into novel writing in 2004. His love of books from writers such as Stephen King and Dean Koontz and shows like The X-Files inspired him to create fiction.
With about a dozen books written, Starta blends horror with mystery, fantasy and suspense to create what he calls fiction on the fringe of genre.
I believe my Caitlin Diggs series best exemplifies my love for horror, specifically the wonder and terror of the supernatural. Since we can't totally deny the supernatural exists, it is this grey area, a twilight between reality and fantasy that lends itself best to creating terror.
Caitlin Diggs is an FBI special agent who seems destined for the strange. In Blood Web, she encounters a crystal artifact which controls a teen to become its serial killer to exact revenge for Native Americans slaughtered in the 1860's.
In Extreme Liquidation, Diggs experiences the paranormal effects of the crystal when she develops PSI abilities including telepathy and telekinesis. But those abilities may not be enough to stop the reincarnated occultist Aleister Crowley who hides within someone close to Caitlin and surreptitiously comes to the agent in dreams tempting her with magic.
In Demon Inhibitions, a perfect read for the Halloween season, Diggs leaves the FBI believing they will never understand nor believe her growing abilities. Moving to Salem, MA to become a PI, Diggs finds her new town is haunted by recent and gruesome murders. When Diggs investigates, she finds a paranormal suspect in the form of an incubus.
But the encounter with the incubus is just a prelude to her real battle when a fugitive escapes prison. Diggs knows this suspect is not human despite her FBI's unwillingness to concede the reality of the supernatural. As Diggs chases the demon, she becomes caught in its wake and is led to a universe of preternatural beings. Here, Diggs encounters her alternate self in a fight to stop the demon. But it's not just the demons that are scary here. The investigation reveals the demon is somehow connected to a group of crusaders hell bent on using the genetically engineered creation against its own kind. I sometimes believe humans can be the scariest of all monsters.
