About Erika M Szabo

I became an avid reader at a very early age, thanks to my dad who introduced me to many great books. The writing bug bit me much later, on a rainy afternoon, when I couldn’t find any new book to read. My daughter had enough of my moping around and snapped at me, “Mom, stop whining! If you haven’t a book to read, then write one.” Her challenge shocked me, but I started playing with the idea and I’ve been writing stories, that I like to read, ever since. I write speculative alternate history fiction, romantic urban fantasy, historical suspense novels as well as fun, educational, and bilingual books for children ages 2-14 about acceptance, friendship, family, and moral values such as accepting people with disabilities, dealing with bullies, and not judging others before getting to know them. I also like to encourage children to use their imagination and daydream about fantasy worlds.

The Curse by Erica Szabo is a story within a story and well executed. The protagonist, Emily returns to her homeland of Hungary to visit her brother Jayden who has made an exciting find, an ancient book. On her journey home, Emily reconnects with her childhood sweetheart and their romance rekindles. As Emily reads the book her brother has found, she finds remarkable similarities to her life and her brother's. I won't give the rest of the story away, but I found it is an enjoyable read and a fast paced one, with likable characters and an interesting plot. I quite enjoyed the blend of Hungarian culture sprinkled throughout, and the mention of Hun history is interesting and integral to the plot. Well done, Erica! Five Stars!

Jayden is an archeologist on a dig in Hungary. He is positive he has just seen his sister, Emily. But, Emily is still in the US and won't be arriving until the next day for her vacation.
Emily is excited about returning to Hungary. She has not been back since she was 12 and her parents stopped visiting her Grandmother. While waiting for the plane, a stranger speaks to her. Amazingly it is her friend from Hungary who lived next door to her Grandparents. When he meets her plane, Jayden gives Emily an ancient book he found and asked her to translate the Hun writing. What does the book say? Does it explain Jayden's vision? Are there secrets in the old country? Very captivating story!
