About the author
Dino Simonetti hails from Winthrop Massachusetts, a small town east of Boston. Simonetti lived his first 28 years in this historical town and can recall stories told by Edward Roe Snow, a neighbor at the time. He also took a liking to Poe's works as well. He credits much of his influence to King, Koontz, and Barkers works. He stated some of the light, breezy prose is influenced by Janet Evanovich as well.
Mr Simonetti has a sense of humor that lends to his charismatic demeanor and you will find him quite easy to talk to. One thing I did notice is he listens intently and takes a great interest in you and he will ask you questions about you and not speak of himself unless asked. He is always quick with a joke and quite witty.
Mr Simonetti stated he was a pharmacist for over twenty-years and has just recently embarked on a career in massage therapy. He is a father to four-children, all fully grown and living in Salem MA. He himself resides in Utah for the time being.
Simonetti can spin a yarn that will definitely scare you. The pieces described to me were certainly teasers to read his book-I was delighted to read it. He states that to make a scene really scary or gory, he has to imagine what would gross him out or scare the life out of him-he claims to have a high threshold to horror and gore. The style of writing he credits to an idea his son gave him. The manuscript can be likened to a screen-play and is written from the point of view of a twenty-something recounting a movie in exquisite detail. The book is peppered with the cleanest and most inoffensive erotica I've ever read and it is placed strategically within the story line. The venacular of the characters is precisely what you would expect from young adults who have spent a great deal of time on the streets; I found it quite entertaining at times.
The story started out on a single premise and became more and more twisted and convoluted, until he put together a tale that will run into several parts and top the 3000 page mark. This first installment, Shape-shifters and Succubae, lays the groundwork for the mystery, the horror, and the suspense all rabid horror enthusiasts will enjoy following, in the end, hopefully leaving them breathless!!

AN INDIE EDITOR HAD THIS TO SAY OF SIMONETTI'S WORK:
This is the first book I have read by this author and I’m very impressed. The story is set in the present tense and seems to be written from the point of view of a spectator at a movie recounting every scene in their own words. The author has a fascinating way of capturing the verbalizations and colloquialisms of young adults. Normally not one for profane language, I found the profanities to be strategically placed and oftentimes humorous. The dialogue resembles a screenplay and it seems like it could be handed to a set of characters to memorize their lines. The portrayal of a mid-sized city feels authentic and the perfect backdrop for all the wild things that happen. Some of the scenes are so descriptive and extremely gory if you have a weak stomach this may not be for you. The character development and their inherent interactions is well written. The author uses different fonts to portray the dialogues between man and demon. The cemetery scene feels real as does the appearance and disappearance of the demon and succubus. There is a fox, which flits in and out of the scenes and it’s significance left me wondering throughout. The cast of characters is quite large, about twenty in all, but he managed to keep them all clear for me to follow; truly an amazing feat. There are some explicit scenes but they’re written in such a way most would find them inoffensive. The writer describes lesbian relationships well and the characters seem to blend with the rest of the cast; all but one. The beginning chapters seem almost Pulp-like and the author did a fine job of helping me visualize how everything will overlap. The book has plenty of ups and downs but I was completely engaged. The author did a good job of capturing my interest and made me want to read on to see what happens next. The author introduces random occurrences, which left me wondering throughout my read if I would find out what they meant; he must have future plans for them.
My suggestion, keep the lights on for this one.
Rebecca Scarberry with World Literary Café I give this one 5- stars
“I can’t wait to see what happens next.”
