Meet The Author

"Christie Stratos’ writing is seasoned and refined, and she kept making me gasp with surprise, which isn’t easy to do."

At 1,950 words, this horror short story is a 10-minute read or less.

It’s the quietest evils that are the most horrifying—their persistence, constant presence, and unyielding terror. Real horror flourishes in its perpetual infliction of fear.
