1) Why write horror?
Writing horror is catharsis; it allows you to take ownership of your fears and in a way, writing about them helps me overcome them. In my first horror short story, Trapped Within a Dream, I included a scene with spiders. I'm deathly afraid of spiders. And after working through that fear, they don't seem as scary.
2) Tell us about your writing style - is it gore, psychological, etc?
I love to build suspense, twists and turns with a hint of gore!
3) Who is your favorite woman in horror author?
4) Who is your favorite scream queen?
Jamie Lee Curtis

An unspeakable evil haunts the Black Bayou … dare she tread where no soul has ever returned?
Living in her parents’ shadow is what Willa Blake does best. And even though she longs to break free, she reluctantly agrees to a family vacation to New Orleans and finds herself in a literal vacation from Hell.
Everything that could go wrong does. And to make matters worse, Willa's younger brother Elwood goes missing. In the fabled Black Bayou, a place locals fear more than death.
Refusing to believe he is lost forever, Willa follows every possible lead to save her brother, scouring the whole of Louisiana only to learn that the things that go bump in the night are real, the scary legends are true, and the locals are desperately trying to keep something sinister hidden. And if she can't uncover their dark secrets in time, her brother will die a horrific death-- and worse, the bayou will swallow up his soul in its sinister darkness.
