Lenka Dusek was born in the Czech Republic. She immigrated with her family to the UK in 2002. Having studied English literature at university (Masaryk University, Czech Republic) she decided to take up writing, and became a freelance ghost writer for a number of UK authors.
She has had a lifelong interest in mythology. As a teenager she and a group of like-minded students were privileged enough to be able to stay overnight at some of the most notorious haunted castles in Europe, including Moosham Castle in Unternberg, Austria, and Predjama Castle In Slovenia. She has been all over Europe searching for evidence of paranormal activity, and has undertaken extensive research into vampire folklore. Her fascination for the supernatural has never waned.
Most of the characters in her works are modeled on the real people, particularly those people she traveled with and who shared her interest in the occult.
The Lighthouse People
Grandpa was always good at telling stories. The one about the lighthouse people was one of his best. But sometimes its hard to know whether or not there's an element of truth buried in all that colorful narrative. Marinka is confident that those lighthouse people are just one of gradpa's random yarns, but her friend Teun is not so sure. Could the dead really be haunting the local beach?
Frank can't believe his ears when he hears the voice of a little child calling out in the darkness. That's not the sort of thing one expects to hear in the middle of the night from the depths of the local coal mine.
As a constable he is duty bound to help. He switches on his torch and enters the long, dark, filthy shaft. But there's much more to this night than he could ever have imagined.
The Totes Butters Ghost
(5.00 from 1 review)
“So anyway there was like this ghost that was caught between worlds because it was like too lame-o to go to hell and too butters to go to heaven; so then this galdem of yolo chicks who were beyond fabulous were like messing with it and made it all super PO and then it was like, OMG, totes mcgoats all on; and they were like seriously freaking and...”
The Witch's Bathroom
(4.50 from 2 reviews)
Casey had often referred to it as the witch's bathroom. But that was just tongue in cheek. Her mother had always been a bit of an eccentric decorator and Casey didn't think for a moment that there was anything in it. But little did she know how much evil really lurked within the walls of that small room... not until that fateful day when she looked up and found herself face to face with a ghost.
The Ghost on the Cliff
What could be more romantic than two weeks at a seaside beach house, overlooking the rambling cliffs? For Joaquin and Keira... anything. They weren't counting on the place being haunted by some evil entity.
Joaquin is the only one that sees it. Or hears it. At first he doesn't know what to make of this "ghost", but when he realises it has a physical form he knows it's not invincible.
The Vampire Witness
(5.00 from 2 reviews)
Witnesses mean slayers... every vampire knows that. The thought of leaving one behind at a scene is an act of foolishness beyond compare. They must be killed. No question.
But Sam finds herself in a quandary when she realizes a child has witnessed one of her attacks. She doesn't much relish the idea of killing a little girl. But how could she possibly let her live?
Sam and the Wolf
(4.33 from 3 reviews)
The three rules of vampire survival:
1. Never leave a witness.
2. Never leave evidence.
3. Never leave a pattern.
Of course, a non-human witness will never tell.
When Sam goes out on the hunt she sees a pair of amber eyes that can help her out. A lone wolf. He might be near the top of the food chain in the wild but he can't refuse the commands of a powerful revenant like her.
Flesh Shadows - The Heir Apparent
Sam has high expectations for the newest vampire in the city - a young man called Ben. She should have... she was the one who converted him. As a mortal Ben had been strong, sharp-minded, and dashing, with a well developed dark side, so he should have made a great prince of darkness.
But Sam soon starts to wonder about her choice. Especially when she finds herself wet-nursing the new recruit.
