What do dozens of missing manhole covers, a completely unhinged witch, and a werewolf suicide have in common?
That it is just another night at the office for Agent Natalya Ignatiev of the PIB or the Paranormal Investigation Bureau.
In this short collection of case files, we are taken behind the scenes on some of the craziest calls the agents of the PIB deal with on a daily basis. Just a little insight into one of the most bizarre jobs out there because when the supernatural are involved anything is possible.
`If you look in the local Starbuck’s or Barnes and Noble you might just find Mariana Thorn. She can usually be found with headphones in and deep into the worlds she has created. There is this thing about her pens if you touch them you might receive a smack to the hand and the well-known glare of destruction.
As a child all her stories involved horses, horses and more horses. There might have been a slight obsession. Writing became more serious in her early twenties but she never dreamed of publishing until much later. Mariana participates yearly in the international event called NANOWRIMO. She has even been known as a Municipal Liaison for that crazy event. There is nothing like the feeling of encouraging other writers, she would say.
Outside of writing one of her favorite places to sit and read are the sunny beaches of Florida. At home in Washington State her favorite activity is riding horses up on the mountain trails. She has an awesome group of family and friends that keep her in coffee and encouragement. Then there is her best buddy Tony, her little dog. She suspects he will try and take over the world someday.
