I’m thrilled to share that I’ve been featured in De Mode Magazine of Literature’s “11 books to add to your reading list this winter” feature in their Oct/Nov/Dec issue!
I was so honored to have them reach out to me a while back and they’ve been wonderful to work with. I’m so glad that The Impostor collection caught their eye and made them want to include it. They gave me a very in-depth interview and it was definitely a awesome, new experience working with a magazine.

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but this week you can catch me on TV in an interview with Connie Hall-Scott on “The Talk with Connie!” talk show. It’ll be airing on her show between August 31st and September 6th.
It was so great to get to talk with her last week and we had a really fun conversation about werewolves, cryptozoology, and life as an author. If you live in the North Georgia counties of Gordon, Walker, Catoosa, Whitfield, or Murray, you’ll be able to watch the show at the following times:
I’m still in shock that I’ve now had a TV appearance, and I really appreciate Connie reaching out to me about this. I had a blast talking with her and I look forward to getting the chance to chat with her again!
Remember me mentioning how bad I was about sharing interviews here? Especially around a book release? It’s such a busy time that sometimes posts fall through the cracks. I’ll share hen on social media, but sometimes I forget to post them here.
Well here’s another poor interview that I forgot to post. This one is with fellow Parliament House sister, Heather Kindt. (Her book, The Weaver, comes out soon!) I talk about what inspired me to write Stolen and even mention some of the earliest original works I’ve ever written. (You’ll be surprised!)
I also discuss my journey on becoming an author, from my fan fiction days, to focusing on my computer science degree, and finally getting back into writing again. Every person’s journey to finding their craft is different, and these days there are so many potential paths to take too.
So I apologize folks, but I am terrible at remembering to share interviews I’ve done on here. I share them around like crazy on social media, just because it’s easier to to do, but when it comes down to posting them on my blog, I just forget. It’s one of those bad habits I’ve noticed since my debut novel, Stolen, came out in January, and it’s something I hope to tackle as I continue doing interviews down the road.
The researcher in me thinks there has to be a pattern, because I see other authors struggle with this too, especially as interviews get done around release dates. When you have a book coming out, not only are you prepping for your own release party, but you’re also working on book tours and putting together materials for those. Interviews for some reason just get forgotten after the initial social media push.
So in trying to make up for that lapse, here’s an interview I did back in March for The Horror Tree. Now if you’re a horror author looking for publishers to submit to, this site is indispensable. They’re a free site, and they post up information that is often more detailed than what’s on Duotrope. For short story horror writers, it’s a gem.
So you can imagine my excitement when I was asked to do an interview for them! This is one of the most comprehensive interviews I’ve done about not just Stolen and The She-Wolf of Kanta, but also for Night Feeders. Check out the link below!
