DISEASE COVER RELEASE!!!!

It seems I have a wealth of exciting things happening, not the least of which is the re-release of my novel DISEASE. For those of you that have been with me from the beginning of this journey, it’s seemed like a long time coming. I originally self-published back in October of 2014. Now, just over four years later (wow! has it really been that long??) I have a second edition ready to go through Stitched Smile Publications. Continue reading

GUEST BLOG: The Gender Gap Overcorrection

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.

EXCLUSIVE: Q&A With Stitched Smile Publications CEO Lisa Vasquez

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

EXCLUSIVE: Q&A with The Burning World Author Isaac Marion

In 2010 Warm Bodies, a book with a new kind of zombie, hit store shelves. It quickly became a bestseller and a major motion picture. Many years later the much anticipated sequel, The Burning World, will finally be released on February 7, 2017, kicking off with a multi-city tour.

In advance of that, New York Times bestselling author Isaac Marion found time to sit down to talk with me about the new book. Continue reading

Published by Saga Press


What the #@&% Is That? The Saga Anthology of the Monstrous and the Macabre, edited by John Joseph Adams and Douglas Cohen, is a collection of short stories, all of which contain the line “What the fuck is that?” As gimmicky as that may sound, this renowned editing duo was able to round up some of the best names in sci-fi, fantasy, and horror to contribute to the book. Names like New York Times best-selling authors Scott Sigler and Jonathan Maberry, to name a couple.

BOOK REVIEW: The Bye Bye Man: And Other Strange-but-True Tales

indexWritten by Robert Damon Schneck

Published by TarcherPerigee


The Bye Bye Man: And Other Strange-but-True Tales by Robert Damon Schneck is the retelling of true, unexplained events from across America. From aliens and mummies to phantoms and even vampires, these stories run the gamut.

Laid out in the same format as most of the “strange-but-true” books many of us read as children, Schneck details each event and then dives into the deep end, trying to tease out the truth. The research and dedication put into this book is truly astounding.

Pathfinder Tales: Bloodbound, written by F. Wesley Schneider, is a novel set in the award-winning RPG world of Pathfinder.
