WiHM 9 Presents - Yolanda Olson
Content advisory: The following book contains vivid depictions of gore, graphic sexual violence, endless mind games, will induce strangely beautiful feelings of paranoia, and lots of bad things. Really bad things. It's not recommended eating before, during, or after reading this story. Prepare for a one way trip to Hell.
Not by ghosts, but by a face I can't quite remember. Eyes that shine so brightly each time I see them, are now nothing more than a hazy memory.
The thoughts that whisper so quietly inside my mind when I'm sure I have this evil inside of me under control are becoming more persistent.
I know where I need to be, but not quite sure if I'll get there. Will she ever show her face to me or will I always only see a blank slate of nothing?
There are only a few simple things I know to be true:
I'm not a messy man.
I'm not a serial killer.
I can stop anytime I want to.
I am NOT crazy.
1) As a female horror writer what do you bring to the table in terms of what of you write?
Unrelenting gore. I don't hold back when I write because I feel like I wouldn't be doing my stories justice. I like to climb into the minds of my readers and jostle them around a bit while they wallow through the blood and horrific details to get to the "point".
2) Do you think female authors are underrepresented in the horror genre?
Uh yeah. This is not an easy genre to be in, but I like it because it's who I am and I refuse to sell out and go the easy route. Home is where the horror is.
3) Tell us about your book(s)
That's kinda open ended really. None of my books are the same. You won't read the same story twice because I have a lot of stories to tell and each character demands a certain way their story be told and how their legacy, for lack of a better word, is paved.
4) Why is horror writing important to you?
Because to me; it's the hard road.
5) Is the future of horror female?
I hope so, but I guess we'll have to see.
