Roberta Smith writes paranormal mystery novels that include romance. She is a native Southern Californian and a graduate of the University of Redlands. Always intrigued by the unexplained, her favorite stories growing up involved ghosts and the macabre. As a child, she wrote a letter to Boris Karloff telling him she knew he didn't mean to kill the little girl in "Frankenstein" and received an autographed picture for her efforts. Two authors who have influenced her writing are Susanna Kearsley and Daphne DuMaurier. In 2014 she and a partner formed Nevermore Enterprises to promote the horror and paranormal genres in the High Desert. Thus far, four events have been produced: the "First Annual Horror Book Fest," the "Second Annual Horror Book Fest," "An Afternoon with Sara Karloff," and "The Third Annual Horror Book Fest." Roberta also gives talks on "Ghosts in Literature."
