I’m a respectable suburban wife and mother by day, a teller of dark tales by night. I’d rather be spooked than shocked, haunted instead of horrified.
I cut my teeth on the spooky soap opera "Dark Shadows" when I was a kid. When I grew up, I learned to appreciate storytellers like Rod Serling, Stephen King, Dean Koontz and Virginia Coffman (look her up!). I wouldn't want to try comparing myself to these writers, but their work gives you some idea of what I like in a scary story.
My work has appeared in "Weird Tales" and "Amazing Stories."
