Jason White and Michael Schutz from The Darkness Dwells Podcast are such cool guys. They have their fingers on the pulse of horror, they’re knowledgable, and they’re also kind. They consistently run one of my favorite podcasts, and I’m so delighted that they invited me on to discuss Women in Horror Month. This is what they have to say about … Read More
I love Women in Horror Month. Although women work in horror all year long (surprise!), I think it’s nice to take time out to specifically search out diversity in our reading and viewing. Michael Bailey wrote a pretty comprehensive list of some fantastic female writers. There’s something here for everyone, so why don’t you swing by and pick up something new … Read More
Hey, that’s me! The Horror Writers Association interviewed me for Women in Horror Month. And that’s just awesome. Swing by here if you get a chance!
Shane D. Keene interviewed me on Shotgun logic, and it was a blast! Oh, wait. That was a terrible and unintentional pun. Anyway, I really dug the interview. I didn’t have my filter on and talked about grief, the horrors of writing Little Dead Red, my excitement about Gamut, and how I don’t like being told to girlie up an anthology. I … Read More
Ah, Women in Horror Month. How I love it! The delightful Simon Dewar asks about my favorite women in horror, why WiHM is important to me, and what advice I’d hand out. Please stop by and check it out!

We discussed many of the newer women in the genre, but I had a lovely conversation with David J. Schow where he urged us not to forget some of the veteran female horror writers. He gave me a wonderful list and … Read More
Well. I’m mad. I’m not trying to be inciting or hysterical. But I am angry. A “fellow” horror writer lambasted a dear friend and amazing woman for doing book signings while in costume and…I’m not quite sure what else. Being a woman? He said women were especially bad at trying to grab attention (“claiming” we’re horror writers when we aren’t) … Read More
This is an exceptionally cool project, and one that I’m looking forward to. Announcing the Grimm Mistresses Novella Collection, put out by Ragnarok. Remember the Grimm Brothers? Those dark fairy tales that made you leave the light on long before Disney went and sanitized them? Well, we do! Now the MISTRESSES GRIMM take back the night, five female authors who … Read More
Hi friends! I mentioned earlier that I was lucky enough to record a podcast with The Think Tank Podcast group. I had a soft, cushy chair while everybody else was sprawled across the hotel room like sleepy cats. (It *was* 7:00 AM Vegas time on a Saturday morning. Let’s be honest.) We discuss Women in Horror month, breaking stereotypes, … Read More
The extremely wonderful and talented Damien Walters Grintalis has invited me to guest post on her blog to celebrate February, which is Women in Horror month. Damien is a regular at the Shock Totem flash fiction contest, and she has placed pretty much every time. Her work is stunning, her personality is warm and mysterious, and she’s just absolutely a … Read More
