I’m proud and excited to be featured on The Scary Reviews today. I was interviewed by David Spell, a very well read indie reviewer and creator of the site, as part of his brilliant Spotlighting Women in Horror feature. It was fantastic talking to him about the music that inspired Anatomy of a Darkened Heart and other works, the authors that have impacted my writing, my favorite themes to write about, and how I came up with the title for my book. There’s much more, too! David asked questions I so enjoyed answering. See the full interview here. Hope you enjoy learning more about AoDH, my writing process, and the fantasy land I’d preferably live in! 🙂
Yesterday I was thrilled to find horror and dark fiction review website The Scary Reviews had posted a review of Anatomy of a Darkened Heart. I have to say, when I found out the wonderful David Spell was reading my book, I was nervous. AoDH is certainly dark, but it isn’t horror. Some people say AoDH creeps them out while others enjoy its darkness with no creep factor. David is a seasoned horror reviewer, so you can imagine my split feelings between excitement at his reading my book and apprehension. What if it simply didn’t hit the mark of being dark enough to satisfy a reader with so many dark fiction books under his belt?
I’m so fortunate to be featured on David’s new section of his website “Women in Horror”, a project that’s very exciting for us females who want to be recognized for our darkness. Make sure to check out the other ladies who have been and will be featured on David’s site. David’s interview with me will be posted December 15, so stay tuned for that as well!
