STORY

Most families have secrets. But secrets always yearn to be known.

Join us as we explore the dark secret of one family. A secret with roots that run deep– a secret that refuses to stay buried.


About the Author:

Aaron Vlek is a storyteller who works with the trickster mythos in its role as bringer of delight and proponent of disquieting humors. Some of her (yes, her) stories center around the goings on of the jinn, and of a universal imagining of the Native American character, Coyote. Some works are historical in setting while others occupy a contemporary and urban landscape. She also indulges frequently in the reimagining of classic themes of horror and the occult. Aaron is a graduate of Sarah Lawrence College.

Domine Canè, a short piece of speculative horror with a historic theme, appeared in the April 2015 issue of Bards and Sages Quarterly, Vol. VII, Issue II. The Black Meal, a work of speculative horror appeared in the October 2015 issue of Outposts of Beyond. At the Kids’ Table appeared in the 2015 Christmas Edition of Chicken Soup for the Soup. Eight additional stories have been accepted for publication throughout 2016.

“I focus on writing soundscapes that will make the media immersive rather than having music that is distinctive. I intend to make all sounds illustrate the worlds that the media is set within.” ~ Nico Vettese
