Féretrina Series

Back in 2012, I wrote a story, which I initially called “Coffin Belly Mary”. It is a sort of Latin American Folk-tale with Horror overtones and tells the story of a young unnamed girl who suffers a horrible injustice at the hands of a bunch of coyotes (human smugglers) and gets her revenge after making a deal with La Santa Muerte. In return for the favor, she agrees to change her name to Féretrina and become a representative for the downtrodden and the misfits within the Latino community-a sort of Mexican Billy Jack-but instead of using karate to beat up the bad people, she uses her connections with the Lady of the Shadows to get back at these people through supernatural means. Since then, I have been meaning to get back to the character to continue her story, and have finally gotten back on track with part one of a sequel entitled “Lazaro Rising”. As I complete the subsequent parts of the series, I shall post links to their respective pages here:
