New essay for Women in Horror Month

I’m so pleased to be part of The Horror Tree’s Women in Horror Month.  In my essay “Upcycling Emotions, or Why I Write Horror,” I talk about what draws me to this genre built upon the dark side of the human experience.  I also touch on how I came to write my story “Hell-ium Balloon” from Last Girls Club

I hope you’ll explore the other pieces that The Horror Tree features for this month and in February of years past, too.
