Alfredo R. Sandoval worked for forty-six years in the copper mining industry before retiring in 1995. He lives in Tucson, Arizona. My Creature, My Love is his first book.
My Creature, My Love
My Creature, My Love begins with a young girl’s admiration and deep unrelenting reverence for a serpent she sees close to the foot of a cross on a mountaintop. An unnatural and consecrated attraction and adoration to a skillfully prepared stuffed rattlesnake she insisted her father buy for her in an antique shop in Albuquerque, New Mexico provides a morbid and suspenseful setting for this story. A bizarre and lurid companionship exists between the girl and the reptile. This communal love and veneration relationship is a very strong weapon she uses on anybody to have her own way, especially to hold her widowed fatherâ€™s love for herself and nobody else.
Unlike the current-day portrayal of horror in movies and other media, My Creature, My Love conveys a suspenseful illustration of bestiality and the power it has when used to serve the willful desires of the main character.
