A collection of true-life encounters with the supernatural based on the first-hand experiences of everyday Australian women from all walks of life.

SPIRIT SISTERS was inspired by the scores of women who would preface their story with 'I've hardly told anyone this, but...'. The journalist would scratch the surface and their story would tumble out; they'd given up the ghost, so to speak.

In SPIRIT SISTERS you'll meet Australian women of all ages who share their very personal encounters with the supernatural.

From a high-flying banking executive whose life changed for ever after a visit from a bizarre, winged entity, to a mother of seven who was held and soothed by her husband five days after she'd buried him, to the woman who lost most of her family in one car accident, this book is heart-breaking, inspiring, scary and comforting.

In an age when psychics are called the new therapists and buying your own high-tech ghost-hunting equipment is just a click away on eBay, this book is a celebration of the one thing that hasn't changed in hundreds of years.

When a friend draws close, lowers her voice and begins to tell you her ghost story, as her eyes widen and her smile fades, as the very air around you seems to thicken and the back of your neck begins to tingle...isn't it delicious?

About The Author

Karina Machado was born in Uruguay and moved to Sydney with her family as a toddler, where she grew up hearing stories of her mother's psychic gift, igniting a life-long curiosity about all matters supernatural. She began her career in journalism as editorial assistant at TIME magazine in 1994, and is now a senior editor at WHO magazine, where she's for ever pitching spooky stories. She's also obsessed with the Tudors of England, and has been known to dress up as Anne Boleyn, whose ghost she's sadly never seen.

    Comments about Spirit Sisters:

    I absolutely loved reading these books written by Karina Machado. Very rarely have I been stunned by how well this author describes and communicates the personal stories of a very sceptical subject.

      Comments about Spirit Sisters:

      A very hard book to put down, many late nights get a bit carried away. Great reading about stories from people that are in contact with the other side, very intriguing. Have also read Where the Spirit Dwells also a brilliant read. Look forward to another Karina Machado book in the future :-)
