Mylo Carbia is a Hollywood screenwriter turned #1 bestselling author, widely known for her work in the horror-thriller genre and trademark of surprise twist endings. Ranked 7th in the Top 10 Horror Writers Alive Today, and among the Top 250 Most Influential Authors by Richtopia.com, her award-winning writing style has been described as A perfect mix between Stephen King, M.

Soon after, Carbia moved to Manhattan and quietly penned numerous television and film projects under her production company Zohar Films-earning the nickname 'The Queen of Horror' and the reputation of being Hollywood's top horror film ghostwriter. In 2015, Carbia left ghostwriting to join the publishing world. Her debut novel, THE RAPING OF AVA DESANTIS, hit #1 bestseller in four categories, and won multiple awards including the prestigious 2016 Silver Falchion Award for Outstanding Achievement in Fiction. Her highly anticipated follow-up, VIOLETS ARE RED--a dark thriller about a Manhattan housewife who captures her husband's mistress and quietly keeps her prisoner in the basement-is anxiously awaited by her fans and scheduled for worldwide release Summer 2018.
