1) As a female horror writer, what do you bring to the table in terms of what of you write?
I think as a female horror writer, I bring a different perspective to the genre. While I certainly don't pull any punches and happily ever after's aren't my thing, my stories all tend to have a strong emotional core. I believe this is vital to my storytelling and brings my characters to life. After all, nobody cares what happens to characters they can't connect with, either on a personal or emotional level.
2) Do you think female authors are underrepresented in the horror genre?
Yes, I think so. Women authors are vastly underestimated when it comes to their writing skills in this particular genre. But I also think we're rapidly making progress in taking our stories to the people and showing them what we've got. Already there's a lot more of us than before, and that isn't something that will change.This is a new age, one in which I think we'll shine.
3) Tell us about your book(s)
I write predominantly apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic fiction. My first series, Dangerous Days, focuses on the trials and tribulations of a group of survivors during the zombie apocalypse. While there's plenty of gore and action, it's as much about the people as it is about the end of the world. Each of the characters has to learn who they really are, and what they bring to the table in what is a community effort to survive.
4) Why is horror writing important to you?
I love horror. I always have. The rush, the excitement, the feeling you get when all seems lost or a favorite character is in trouble, it culminates in a deep love of the genre for me. I like that it's such a varied genre too with something for literally everybody. Because of this, I felt it was important that I bring my own stories to life, that I add my own voice to the multitude of horror voices out there. So far, I have not been sorry!
5) Is the future of horror female?
I think the future of horror is dual, a place where we are all appreciated for our talents and skills. Each of us can bring something to it, something special and unique, and that's what I like, a spirit of cooperation and camaraderie.
