From the Headlines--Sadly
Sunday, October 16, 2011  5:15:00 PM

by Leslie P Garcia



Literary Fiction
La Llorona (The Wailing Woman) may touch on a century old legend, but the substance of the anthology is straight from the headlines.

Another missing baby, and the sad possibility that the parents, possibly specifically the mother, may be involved.  While the nation prays for the safe recovery of baby Lisa, it also remembers the Casey Anthony case, the incomprehensible cases of women like Andrea Yates, Susan Smith, and others, who murder their own children.

La Llorona (The Wailing Woman) by south Texas author Leslie P. Garcia touches on the legend of a scorned woman who killed her babies a century ago, and searches for them even today, slipping in spirit form through our real world.

Sadly, La Llorona (yo-ro-na) may be legend, but mothers do kill.  Why?  Short fiction, an essay on the most notorious recent killer mom incidents and related poetry address the fine line between legend and real world evil.

La Llorona (The Wailing Woman) is available in e-book format at all the popular e-book distributors, including Amazon.com, Smashwords.comB&N.com, Apple, and others.

Visit author Leslie P. Garcia here at AuthorsDen or at her Facebook page, and purchase your copy of this chilling anthology now!
