Writing spotlight: ‘The Night of Elisa’ by Isis Sousa

In writing spotlights, I will show you books I have had the privilege to work on.

The Night of Elisa by Isis Sousa, edited by Clare Diston (Human Voices Editorial Services).

The Night of Elisa is a Gothic novella written by Brazilian-born Isis Sousa. Sousa lives in Norway with her husband and works as an illustrator. When she isn’t working, she writes and illustrates stories – dark tales with female leads that reflect of her love of the Gothic.

There she meets a cast of peculiar characters, including a pair of Siamese twins and a mysterious man to whom she feels strangely drawn. But how did Elisa end up in Duskland? Can she escape? And does she even want to?
