Gladys Quintal Showcase

Today I am featuring Author Gladys Quintal

~ Gladys Quintal ~
A survivor of sexual abuse, I have recently written the true account of my childhood, titled: Life After Hell: Surviving Sexual Abuse. I have tried to convey what happened to me as well as my journey to finally getting justice. I am looking into publishing it, so hopefully it will be available in the near future.

A lot of my real life experiences have gone into my fictional works - especially my first book The Man of My Dreams, where I created a vigilante vampire that kills rapists and child molesters.....
I've loved Vampires and the paranormal ever since I can remember and always envisaged myself writing a book or two on the subject! I have written 5 books in The Dream Series so far: The Man of my Dreams, Be Careful What You Wish For, The Chosen One, Succubus: An Erotic Companion and A Match Made in Hell. All Paranormal Romance novels with Vampires(of course) as well as a bit of blood and gore thrown in and the 4th one is slightly on the erotic side! These characters are very close to my heart and I hope you will come to love them as much as I have.

I've also written my first Contemporary Romance trilogy which will be released in July 2014. The "Someone to Love Me" series will consist of 3 novellas: Undeserving, Unforgiving and Understanding. I hope you enjoy them.

I recently published a short story (Why Won't Someone Help Me?) about my health issues and the trouble with getting diagnosed or treated for invisible illnesses.

The Dream Series centres around Cassie, a young girl that is sexually abused by her stepfather and rescued by a vigilante vampire that feeds on rapists and child molesters. He becomes her protector, her guardian angel. Lurking in the shadows out of sight, he watches her as she grows and inevitably falls in love with her.

 Vampires in The Dream Series were cursed 400 years ago and are only able to appear human in a mortal's subconscious. The only way to break the curse is for a human to love them in their real form. He starts to visit Cassie in her dreams, knowing in his heart that sadly there is no way she could ever return his love if she knew who or what he really was.

The Man of My Dreams (Book 1 in The Dream Series) eBook is free on most sites.

Succubus ~ Book 4
November 28, 2013
Succubus is book 4 in The Dream Series, written as a novella to fill in a few gaps – which you know by now is something I love to do. Rather than continuing the plot from book 3, it takes the reader back in time to just after Elizabeth “dies.” You’ll find it a bit more erotic than the first three books, so fair warning!
What happened in the 400 years between Elizabeth dying in her castle tomb and the birth of The Chosen One? Take an erotic step back in time and learn more about what Elizabeth and Sebastian were up to as they prepared for that monumental event to take place.

They certainly didn't get bored while they were waiting, that's for sure!

A Match Made in Hell ~ Book 5 
April 3, 2014

Gabriel is beyond furious when he discovers Chloe was responsible for the untimely demise of his beloved brother. Will Moyra succeed in protecting her friend from the four hundred year old vampire intent on vengeance?

The evil Elizabeth has betrayed them all. Her deceit could find Sebastian burning in the fires of hell for all eternity and force a wedge between Alexi and Cassandra forever.

Life After Hell ~ Surviving Sexual Abuse
September 26, 2013
After being separated from my mother twice in my 10 short years of life, I was more than a little excited at the prospect of being reunited with her again. Unfortunately, my elation was to be short-lived when the visits to my bedroom started. Threatening to send me away again or turn the loaded gun he kept in my wardrobe on us all, he kept my silence. It was to be another six years until I escaped the abuse of my mother’s husband and another 30 years before I was able to bring him to justice. Ironically, the one person that should have protected me and helped me fight to stop him, my mother, is still with him to this day.

Why Won't Somebody Help Me?
  November 11, 2013

I knew I had something going on as far as my health was concerned, but trying to get a diagnosis or to get doctors to actually listen to me became a nightmare.
I had been living with pain, fatigue, weight gain, reflux and brain fog, going on 15 years now and really just wanted it to stop and to be able to feel 'normal' again. Most doctors just wanted to fob me off with antidepressants, they just weren't interested in what I had to say.

This is my own personal journey to diagnosis and treatment and all the obstacles along the way.
