Time to pop in those earbuds and pump up the volume. About two weeks ago the gracious Tim Niederriter invited me to guest on his podcast and the episode has finally dropped. We tear it up, talking about writing, horror, and the publishing industry. Well, as much as you can expect two authors to tear it up anyway. Tim is both a prolific writer and podcaster, and I really enjoyed my time on his show. As always, I’d love to hear what you think! Continue reading

In The Artists Realm with Sylvia Stein – Discussing The Writing and Editing Process, Writing Advice, and My Books Disease and The End Is All We See
Yesterday I was honored to guest on the podcast In The Artists Realm and my host, Sylvia Stein made it a great experience. Despite a bit of scheduling conflict, fully my fault because I screwed up the time zones, we were able to make it work. It’s always a pleasure to discuss my writing process and books, and in this episode we go deep. Continue reading
You heard it right! I found out just a few days ago that I’m the winner of the TheAuthorShow.com 2017 Top Female Authors Award for short story! That means that out of all the nominations they received, they felt my short story, Purple Haze, was the best. I’m above honored, to say the least. There’s nothing more flattering than winning an wining an award for something you’ve worked extra hard on. It’s a validation like no other. Continue reading
What’s that, another podcast wants me to guest? Wow! Word must be getting around about what a super-fantastic podcast guest I am. Well, okay, maybe not, but I guess they don’t think I’m all that bad.

I hope you’ll tune in when the episode drops.
I couldn’t be more pleased with the recent review by David Watson over on HorrorAddicts.net! There is nothing better than knowing someone enjoyed reading something I wrote. It’s the entire reason I do this. That and all glare of the paparazzi camera and stacks of dolla-dolla bills. (At least one of those statements is true). Continue reading

Fifty Shades of Hell (originally Dead Girl) by Tim Miller is a self-proclaimed “extreme horror” story, and I’ll admit that I was intrigued. I’m not averse to extreme horror and had heard good things from other people about this author so I dove in, excited for a terrifying ride.
Things started out pretty rocky, with fantastically expositional writing, but I thought perhaps after the first chapter or two the story would find its legs. My mistake was assuming there was a story. Fifty Shades of Hell is more like a series of pieces depicting badly written porn and torture.
It’s always nerve wracking to send a book out for review. As a reviewer myself, I’m keenly aware of the critical eyes that search out flaws in writing like a pig sniffs truffles. This is the way it should be. My writing has already been though the sniff test on my end… but sending it out to be tested by someone another’s truffle sniffer inevitably has me biting my nails.
Have I ever explained, Dear Reader, why I decided to team up with A.J. Brown for our project The End Is All We See / All We See Is The End? It’s not just because he’s a great person. It’s not just because he’s supportive of other writers, and does his best to help others when he can. It’s not even because he and I hold a similar frame of mind when it comes to, I think, most things. Well… it might be a bit of all of these, but the real reason is because he’s a fantastic writer.
