#NGHW – Guest Judge : Stacy Rich

This week, we welcome guest judge, Stacy Rich. Stacy will be helping us judge the 1000-word true horror blog posts!

Stacy Rich

stacyBlog Editor, HorrorAddicts.net
From growing up in a sleepy 19th century town to discovering Poe before double digits, Stacy has a deep seeded interest in ghosts, true crime, horror, and macabre. When she isn’t reading HorrorAddicts.net content before it is published, (the best perk of her job bwahaha) she is spending the limited amount of time she has left of her sons’ childhood with them, going to awesome punk, noise and acoustic concerts or festivals, traveling, and listening to podcasts. She is a big time podcast junkie. What’s her favorite podcast? HorrorAddicts.net of course!
