You may recall that, a while back, I posted about Ted Naifeh. Well, one of the writers that he’s worked with is Serena Valentino. I discovered her work as I was reviewing Naifeh’s and decided that she would be my next big profile. It doesn’t hurt things that she’s also a young adult author who wrote books like How to be A Zombie.
Serena Valentino worked with Ted Naifeh for the GloomCookie series. It is a deliciously spooky series, perfect for this month. It is about star-crossed lovers Lex and Damion and their circle of friends at a local goth club. It is filled with a gothy cast including a troubled werewolf, a bad poet who thinks he’s a vampire prince, and a whole circus full of monsters. My favorite character is Sebastian, a boy with an actual monster under his bed.
Serena Valentino also wrote Nightmares and Fairytales. This series is a collection of stories about the owners of a cursed doll named Annabelle who usually end up cursed themselves. This series is incredibly haunting, especially 1140 Rue Royale (the third volume) which contains stories about a haunted New Orleans house. These stories are based on the true accounts of Madame LaLaurie and her torture of slaves during the 1800′s.
If you are looking for spooky stories with a gothy flair, check out Serena Valentino today.
