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.
I did a guest post over on Jack Wallen‘s blog for Women in Horror Month. Here’s a small preview, head on over there to read the rest.
I’ve been a horror writer for nearly fifteen years. First as part of the film industry, in a screenwriting capacity, and about four years ago transitioning to fiction. In that time I’ve made some great decisions, and some not so great decisions,(I’m not the craziest about this sentence…not smooth to read) and I’ve busted my butt to continually improve upon my craft and get where I am today.
If you told me that you didn’t want to read my work based my gender, I’d tell you to get the fuck out of town, and I would be right for saying that. I may only have been a writer for one and a half decades, but I’ve been a female my entire life. I’ve had that type of blatant sexism directed toward me more times than I can count, but that’s not what I’ve really come here to discuss.
February is Women in Horror Month, and I wanted to share something of a personal nature. Yes, I’m a “woman in horror,” but that’s not it. While most of the attention is paid to those in front of the camera (whether on screen or the back of a book jacket), those behind the curtain are often overlooked, especially in the literary world.
As an author I’ve had the privilege of working closely with Lisa Vasquez, CEO of Stitched Smile Publications, as she runs her business. Since her company picked my novel up for publication, I’ve had a chance to get to know her and her company. She’s an exceptional example of the many women who work endlessly to bring horror to the masses. Continue reading

The Burning World by Isaac Marion is the much-anticipated sequel to the critically acclaimed Warm Bodies. Despite the fact that it’s a sequel, it’s actually the third book in the series, following the original and a prequel, The New Hunger.
It’s like a dream come true. Back in November I threw Disease up on Wattpad. I figured I had nothing to lose, but lots of readers to gain. Back then I never imagined that it would quickly become a featured novel, and that after that I’d be watching it skyrocket in the ranks. Today I’m please to announce, nay, estatic to announce, Disease is now #1 on Wattpad Featured Horror!
Check out this screenshot from my laptop. Continue reading
