Tips, ideas, opinions, and more on my Blog


I'm a horror writer, although I edit and write in many genres.  I've been featured in a variety of anthologies, on-line publications, and print magazines.  As a former judge for the Bram Stoker Award and the ITW Young Adult Award, I've gained the experience necessary to facilitate writing courses and critique groups. Pennsylvania is home with my husband and five children.
