Author has written 5 stories for Dark Shadows.

My name is Mina and I have a love for the classics in horror and suspense. As a child I traded in Saturday morning cartoons for Saturday morning classics in scary movies. My father and I would watch all the greats; Bela Lugosi, Vincent Price, Lon Chaney, Hitchcock and Abbott and Costello to name a few. In the evenings I would sneak a peak at Twilight Zone and then have bizarre dreams of Captain Kirk looking out the window of an airplane. (for twilight zone fans you know what I mean)

I love the art of the older horror flicks, so much more interesting than the "gorrer" today. I have collected over 100 of the old movies from the 30's through the 50's. There is a beautiful subtlety in which the older movies kept the audience in suspense and it requires far more creativity to achieve.

It wasn't until years later that I discovered Dark shadows. I started watching when I heard about the movie coming out. I began to watch the original series on Netflix and I was hooked. Moreover... I was hooked on the notion of Willie Loomis. Such a tragic story that never really was explored on the show.

I also have mad respect for Jonathan Frid and he is one of my favs as well. Perhaps the next series of stories (if I continue to write) will focus on him.

The stories I have written so far have focused on Willie and the possibilities of his character. They stray far from the original story line, but the spirit of Willie is respected.

I aspire to write my own originals and one day I will, but until then thank you for reading and I truly hope you enjoy.

If you want to connect with you can find me on facebook as Mina Fiction.

Thank You!

Patient Zero - Part 1 reviews
Willie Loomis is forced to give a blood sample to Dr. Woodard, and although Barnabas successfully switches the blood slides, he forgets that the good Dr. still has the needle that was used. In this alternate story line, we find out what could have happened if Dr. Woodard discovered his "condition" This is a stand alone story and is not connected to any other Mina Fiction work.

The Beginning reviews
What happened to Willie Loomis during those few days that we went missing ? This is a story about those missing days from the original series circa 1967 and explores what might have happened to poor Willie. I guess I should state that I don't own any of these characters all belong to Dan Curtis / Dark Shadows. A/N: Final chapter up! Please R&R!
