A lifelong resident of New Orleans, Alyne is the descendant of the family of celebrated American composer, Louis Moreau Gottschalk, and many of her relatives were present for some of the most infamous events in the haunted history of her hometown. From the capture of Bras Coupé the Zombie King, to the breaking of the attic doors of the Madame Lalaurie’s mansion, those firsthand accounts come alive again in her evocative, Gothic book series “Haunting Tales of Old New Orleans.” A second "Haunting Tales" volume, "Under a Creole Moon," is in development. Alyne Pustanio truly is the New Voice of Old New Orleans.
