Read full description of the books:
When a major earthquake in Santiago, Chile heaves a washed-up Latino rock star into the path of a cemetery caretaker she falls head over heels with his ghost while he is helplessly attracted to her cigarettes.
After the quake leaves him homeless, Juan Bonifacio (aka Jhonny Pretty, irresistible blue-eyed 70s singing idol) sets up new digs in the family mausoleum. Astrid de las Nieves is convinced that Jhonny’s ghostly condition renders him incapable of promiscuity and heart all aflutter, she decides a relationship is not only her dream come true, it's their shared destiny.
The thin line between the living and the dead is blurred in this twisted Latin tale where nothing is as it seems – rock star come ghostly indigent; pickpocket come tourism executive; shop owner come purveyor of the saints, con artist come plastic surgeon; meddling ghost come guardian angel. Everything goes wrong – but maybe it’s right – as heaven and earth settle into an unexpected juxtaposition.
Hard Bed Hotel is a bizarre love story full of humour, accident and well-meaning souls. It exposes the everyday oddities and superstitions of Santiago’s less affluent neighbourhoods, in particular the General Cemetery, a perfect breeding ground for unconventional relationships.

Read information about the authorI began writing fiction in earnest after my Chilean-born husband and I moved to Santiago in 1999. You could say I'm a late bloomer. As a child in northern British Columbia I broke into a neighbour’s house just to play with their typewriter. That should have been a sign. But I ignored it, grew up, raised four children and launched a career as a freelance illustrator/graphic designer, which expanded to include writing character profiles for newsletters and introductions to cookbooks. I got more serious about writing after I was hired as editor/production manager of a lifestyle magazine in Spain. My husband and I moved around between Bolivia, Chile and Spain for more than 12 years before returning to Canada for ‘a pause in the game.’
Inspired by life in South America, I've written two novels and begun a collection of short stories.
