DAME TOPAZ TREASURES, Volume II: Spirits, Ghosts and Magic

Carrie S. Masek has been telling stories since she was three and discovered she got into less trouble when she provided creative explanations for the chaos that swirled around her. She now lives in a comfortably messy house on Chicago's North Shore. Contributing to the chaos are her husband, four grown children, and a ditzy dog. When not writing, Carrie (along with her husband) runs a coffee business, Coffee Fresh, Inc., which you can visit here: Carrie has won awards for both short and novel-length fiction.

Carrie's horror short, Cybergeist, was publishing in the Mundania Press anthology Beyond the Mundane: Unravelings, the 2005 EPPIE winner for best anthology. Itís been republished in DAME TOPAZ TREASURES, Volume II: Spirits, Ghosts and Magic. Carrie's novels include: Young Adult paranormal romance, UNDER A BEAR MOON (Hard Shell Word Factory, 5/99), which won both the 2000 EPPIE and the 2000 Dream Realms Award for best YA novel: a futuristic vampire romance, TWICE DAMNED (Mundania Press, 2/05); and A DRAGON'S TAIL (Double Dragon Publishing, 3/05), a Young Adult fantasy written by Carrie and her son William.
