This was an insanely fun interview with Zach Bohannon and J.Thorn from The Horror Writer’s Podcast. I hit it off with them immediately, and it felt like getting into a good-natured scrap with your family at the reunion. Zach is the kind of guy who would sit down next to you at the picnic table and steal the cob of corn from your … Read More
My Darlings, May I Read You A Story?
Last night was a crazy night with SWAT going after the people two houses down.

It was glorious. Such a beautiful, enchanting venue. I was simply charmed. It took place at the Bob Baker Marionette Theater, and it was otherworldly. The readings were beautifully done.

Teach Your Children by Scaring Them: A Podcast

We discuss Women in Horror month, breaking stereotypes, … Read More
