Tell us about yourself:
I’ve been a writer for as long as I can remember, I’m constantly finding journals from when I was little, stories about dragons and ghosts and princesses who were fighting off all the evil in the world. A storyteller, that is what I am.
Why do you dig horror?
It started as a fear of the dark at a very young age. I used to force myself to watch scary movies, to get over that fear, and it helped. I fell in love. The adrenaline rush, that indescribable feeling you get. It’s just amazing how one genre is capable of bringing so many people together.

How has being a woman in the industry helped / hurt you?
If anything, I have found some brilliant women with the same interests. Some who I’m creating with and some who I’d love to create with in the future. We’re all learning how life works, no one has it figured out. You ca be calm as a duck on the surface, and paddle like hell underneath.
Tell a woman who wants to get into horror something you wish someone had told you.
When something goes wrong, don’t you dare give up, you keep on trucking. You’re not alone. Look for like-minded people, they are out there. Create, contribute and collaborate. Don’t let others’ opinion of you, or your work of art determine what you do. Take advice, but always follow that little voice inside your head, that voice is who you are.
