What do you like about the horror genre?

The versatility. I can write about romance or anything within horror because it supports the theme. I think I haven’t even scratched the surface of all there is in horror because “horror” can be in so many forms.

What are some of your favorite horror movies, books or TV shows?

I am a Richard Laymon fan. I like Ira Levin and Stephen King as well but too many to name.

In what way do you live the horror lifestyle?

In my house, discussions about cannibals is normal. A ‘relaxing” show is found on crime t.v. We embrace my persona and everything is “She’s a horror writer” as if that is a reason for anything at all. Spilled milk? Blame the need for a particular horror scene and call in inspiration.

What are you currently working on?

I finished some nasty monsters and a Gothic horror novel and am working on a few projects that cover themes such as cannibals (always!), the Donner party with a friend, D.A. Roberts, monsters in a cave, and an apoc-book. I generally write (begin) 3-4 at a time and then focus on one until it is finished.
