I am an older Horror writer and former Army brat living and working in Colorado who has been writing her own Horror long before anyone wanted to read it. After some 30 years of people-pleasing in other fields of labor, I returned to college to complete my BA in English/ Professional and Technical Writing Emphasis from the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs. The result has been a growing preference for fiction writing over technical, and working as a retail bookseller in exchange for money. So When I’m not living the Horror of retail customer service, I am writing it – Horror, that is – whether about it on this blog, or deep in the trenches alongside three cats and my favorite husband.
I have had work published, including a short short in Dark Moon Digest No. 10 titled “Florida at Night” and a nonfiction piece in online magazine Talking Writing (November 2, 2012) titled “Why Horror Movies Disappoint Readers,” written and co-hosted a PBS documentary on Medieval Costuming for Fanta-C Threads, written Horror book reviews for Howlin’ Wolf Records online, and hosted a blog on Open Salon (which this blog continues) titled “The Horror at Open Salon” from 2012 to 2015, when Open Salon folded.
I write Horror. Therefore I am.
