Where do you find recommendations? Are there any Horror Spotlight books that have been recommended to you that you loved?

I find most of my books on social media. A mix of Facebook and Instagram mostly. These come from other readers, other writers, and websites like LitHub,, etc. Both Mongrels and The Grip of It came highly recommended, and I loved them both.

Are there any upcoming Horror Spotlight releases you're excited about?

I think they’re already released, but I’m waiting on my copies of Never Whistle at Night and Maeve Fly and I’m so stoked to read them. I don’t know if you’ve spotlighted Your Shadow Half Remains by Sunny Moraine, but I’m super excited for that. The Dead Take the A Train looks pretty cool too. 

Let’s get a little adventurous. Answer one or both: What Horror Spotlight book (or story, or movie, etc) would you like to see turned into a Muppet Movie? And/Or Who would play you in a horror movie based on your life?

Okay, who would play me in a horror movie based on my life? Crispin Glover. He captures my weirdness perfectly. Well, him and Melissa McCarthy. Can we split the role between them?

In regards to your own work, tell our readers a little bit about what’s new and/or coming up for you.

I’m currently at work on a novel surrounding a haunting that deals with grief, guilt, and coming out. I also have a couple of short stories in the works and I’m making notes for another novella. 

Where can people find you on social media and/or find your work?
