TCBennett_CemeteryRiots_TitleOnlyI’ve been working hard with T.C. Bennett and we finally have all our stories collected, chosen, and edited. They’ve been sent off to our Layout person and we are eagerly awaiting the pdf of the finished work so we can review it yet again and send it to our authors before it goes to print. We’re on track for our June deadline. Note, the names below do not represent the story order. We read and reread them all to order them to give the collection the best possible flow. Congratulations to all the contributors. It’s going to be a wonderful collection of dark cautionary tales.

Winter Horror Days front CoverWhen I moved from Massachusetts to California a year ago, I was happy to find the friendly and active Los Angeles chapter of the Horror Writers Association aka HWA LA.

A couple of months ago they put out a call for holiday stories for their charity anthology. The only requirement was that the story have something to do with a Winter Holiday. The collection is titled Winter Horror Days.

I brainstormed for a while and finally came up with the tale called, “The Quiet Christmas Tree.” This humorous cautionary tale involves a man, and a Christmas tree haunted by his emotionally abusive late wife. It also involves the bumbling impoverish burglar who steals the tree for his family. As with all good tales, it has a “happy” ending and the right people learn their lessons.

My story was accepted and I’m excited to be in great company with many other HWA LA authors. The book is up for preorder now HERE in paperback and also available in all e-formats.
