‘Queen of Horror’ Weds U.S. Navy War Hero in Star-Studded Celebrity Wedding
Celebrity author and Hollywood screenwriter, Mylo Carbia, marries U.S. Navy War Veteran, Kurt Lund, among fifty of their closest friends and family in Playa Mujeres, Mexico.
New York, NY (Vanderbilt Publishing) – September 16, 2018
By now you may have heard about the inspiration behind #1 bestselling author Mylo Carbia’s latest hit novel, VIOLETS ARE RED, which tells the story of a Manhattan housewife who captures her husband’s young mistress, and quietly keeps her prisoner in the basement of their Upper East Side townhouse.
The modern-day fairytale –– inspired by Carbia’s own surprise divorce –– has taken the literary world by storm, and is a clear choice for avid readers looking for a suspense-filled, dark thriller to celebrate the Halloween season.
In a surprise twist Carbia is known for, the 47-year-old writer shocked fans by abandoning her usual “rock-and-roll-gothic” garb, and instead showcasing a princess-inspired dress and a three-tier rhinestone castle cake in an over-the-top fairytale wedding to U.S. Navy Retired war hero, Kurt Lund, on September 16, 2018.
The nuptials took place just north of Cancun, Mexico, at the Dreams Playa Mujeres Golf & Spa Resort, under tight security given the eccentric guest list comprised of musicians, artists, and actors –– including cast members of THE WALKING DEAD.
Former COLLECTIVE SOUL band members, Ross Childress and Shane Evans, along with lead singer Stephen Wines (now known as 2 BROKE KINGS), played live at the wedding reception, and sang with the bride during the ceremony.
“It was truly an epic, fairytale dream wedding come true,” said one guest, a friend of Carbia since middle school. “We all love Mylo so much, and hated watching her go through hell in past relationships, so to see her finally meet a kind, honorable, down-to-earth man makes us all now believe that things really dohappen for a reason.”
Kurt Lund, 45, spent twenty years in the United States Navy, and earned thirty-five ribbons and medals, including four U.S. Navy and Marine Achievement Medals, for his efforts in Afghanistan and at sea across the globe.
Ranked 7thin ‘The Top 10 Horror Authors Alive Today,’ and among ‘The 250 Most Influential Authors’ by Richtopia.com, Carbia’s debut novel THE RAPING OF AVA DESANTIS hit #1 Bestseller in Horror, won the 2016 Silver Falchion Award for Outstanding Achievement in Fiction, and is currently in development to become a major motion picture.
VIOLETS ARE RED (released by Vanderbilt Publishing) also hit the #1 spot in New Releases and is being touted as “The best horror-thriller novel of the year” by Top10Novels.com.
The newlyweds plan to settle in Palm Beach, Florida, along with the bride’s 13-year-old son. Carbia will continue writing novels and screenplays full-time, with plans to release her third novel and first science fiction thriller, Z.O.O., late Summer 2019.
In addition, the couple will be enjoying their honeymoon this weekend, October 4-7, at the Women in Horror Film Festival in Peachtree City, GA where Carbia is one of the celebrity headliners. “I have a whole new perspective on life after experiencing the wedding of my dreams,” she explained. “The only thing we are guaranteed is change, so from now on, I will cherish every moment with those that matter and be grateful for every blessing that comes my way.”
VIOLETS ARE RED is available everywhere books are sold including Amazon, Barnes & Noble and 30,000 bookstores worldwide.
