United Kingdom of Great Britain & N. Ireland (Press Release) March 1, 2009 --
U.S. author Barbara Watkins, author of the psychological thrillers 'Thorns of an Innocent Soul' and 'Behind the Red Door' has signed with Mythica Publishing who will be producing her latest release, a superb short story collection under the title 'Nightmares and Daydreams'. This wonderfully innovative collection will showcase the talents of the author who specializes in the writing of psychological thrillers and the paranormal. Born in 1959, Ms Watkins is a resident of Sikeston, Missouri, where she lives with her husband and family. She was the 2008 Vice President of The Wizards of Words, and is a member of the Heartlands Writers Guild.
Ms Watkins is the latest in a string of experienced authors to be signed up by Mythica who continue to expand their list of authors on an almost daily basis. Already, UK authors Harry Porter and Gladys Hobson, and U's Author Thomas D Cooke, together with the enigmatic and reclusive 'Predators & Editors Best Poet of 2008 Award Winner', Juan Pablo Jalisco have joined the swelling ranks of Mythica's writing talent.
Head of Mythcia Publishing, Graeme S Houston confesses himself to be "absolutely thrilled and delighted" that yet another experienced published author has agreed to sign with the company, and promises that 'Nightmares & Daydreams' will be released in the very near future. Ms Watkins is quoted as being 'highly excited" at the prospect of seeing her work published by Mr. Houston’s exciting new company.
