Cynthia Pelayo (cina) writes fiction and poetry with a Latin American slant. She holds a special curiosity for superstition, folklore, legend and myth.
Her short story collection LOTERIA contains 54 short stories based on Latin American folklore, superstition, legend and myth. Each story corresponds to one of the cards in the deck of the Mexican board game of chance of the same name. Her first novel, SANTA MUERTE, about the Mexican cult of death was released by Post Mortem Press.
Cynthia Pelayo’s short stories have appeared in The Horror Zine, Danse Macabre, MicroHorror, Seedpod Publishing, Static Movement, Flashes in the Dark, and more. Her journalism work has appeared in Time Out, Extra Bilingual News, Venus Zine, Gozamos, FNews, Atlas Obscura, and more.
She lives in inner city Chicago with her husband, her son, and two angry shih tzus. When not writing Pelayo works in marketing research to pay the bills.
