About Me


My name is Batina Darken and I love all things spooky.

I love ghosts, Vampires, witches, zombies, mermaids, and anything else that goes bump in the night. My obsession with the paranormal started when I was 10 and Buffy the Vampire Slayer graced our screens. From then on, I was hooked. I read stories about brooding Vampires, and Wicked.

Despite a few comments from my English teacher about the types of novels I read, in 20-something years, that hasn’t changed.

Naturally my favourite Holiday is Halloween and my favourite season is Autumn. I live in the UK so both of these are not celebrated as much as much as I think they should be.

I love finding new ways to kick my TBR’s butt.. all except you know… buying less books. I am a fiend.

I read Kindle and Paperback novels and I love them equally. I also enjoy listening to Audiobooks and creating Spotify Playlists for Reading.

I am currently studying Creative writing with the Open University, and I plan to become a published Paranormal Romance Author.

I plan to post Book Reviews, tips I found useful when reading, and my journey to becoming a published author. I will post some fiction short stories and prompts.

One last thing, I love to read Tarot & Oracle cards and I use them mainly as a writing tool to kick-start creativity, so of course expect some Witchery with Tarot Cards..
