Author(s): Karina Machado
A captivating exploration of haunted-house stories from around Australia. It will unearth the creaking, spine-chilling moments when ghosts appear in suburbia. Karina Machado spins a web of wonder and often the interviewees' lives prove just as fascinating as the spooky experiences they're sharing. She will not only give us real-life experiences, Karina will also examine the haunted house in history, literature and popular culture through the book. Alongside infamous Australian haunted homes, like Junee's Monte Cristo Homestead and Annandale's haunted Abbey, Where Spirits Dwell will also take readers inside other haunted dwellings, including schools, pubs and even shopping centres. The local mall will never be the same again.
Karina is well-known in print media; magazines like WHO, NW, Famous, Grazia, Madison & marie claire will be looking at this. Selected metro & regional papers will get this, and will be aiming to do as many radio interviews (and possibly TV) as possible. Paranormal websites will also be targeted.
Karina Machado was born in Uruguay and moved to Sydney 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 editorial assistant at TIME magazine in 1994, and is now a senior editor at WHO magazine, where she's for ever 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.
