17122100_1529807527047840_308339662_oMy novel Abode is currently sale for $0.99.


This is the place where the harrowed ghosts of a dozen generations whisper in the shadows of their ancestral home, where one family’s dreams of a new beginning turned into a nightmare that ended in tragedy.


This is the place where a line of witches bound themselves—in blood—to a primeval entity. Here, nightmare and reality meet beneath frozen skies, and even time and space fall under the power of the demonic being that rules this remote northern wood.


This is the place where the path of a tormented survivor meets that of an unknowing innocent. Past and present collide, and secrets long buried crawl back into the pallid light of day as the shadow of the Beast falls over them both. But even the bloodiest dreams of that demonic being may pale in comparison to what lies buried within the human heart.

This is the place where evil dwells …

Pen Vs. Sword

Seems like every week, there is a new drama bomb in the horror community. I generally stay out of them. There are few things I despise more than internet bickering. This week’s was … fucky. Sad. Frustrating. But I try to be positive about shit. So, on the bright side of things … if you step back and look at the big picture, there have been some very positive changes over the last few decades or so. Things are not perfect. But we’ve come a long way. On the other hand, we’re sliding backwards as instead of having discussions, these topics immediately devolve into spats.
What the fuck, people. Isn’t the whole point of reading to experience someone else’s POV? Isn’t the whole point of an antho to collect stories that all approach things from different angles?
I would be pissed to find out I got into something because I am female. I would also be pissed to find out I didn’t get into something because I am female.
The common denominator, imho, is we should all strive to be better. Better writers, and better people.
That’s all. Going into social media blackout for a while. I’ll reply to messages, but otherwise, Imma be over here writing, and saving cute animal pictures on Pinterest. Facebook has become toxic.

The Apocalypse is here …


, , , , , , ,

Stories of the end of civilized life have always fascinated us, from the mythological world endings, Armageddon to Ragnorok, to the flood stories of across the Ancient world. They make us wonder what we would do if all around us came to an end: no transport, no fuel, no communications: a retreat into the desperation, the onslaught of disease, how would we survive? This is the source of zombie literature and provides the inspiration for this fabulous mix of horror and adventure, of classic and brand new writing in the successful series of Gothic Fantasy titles from Flame Tree. Features my story Bleed the Weak.
