I worked for many years as a technical writing, writing about subjects I did not care about or that were mind-numbing. If I could power through a software user guide, I can crank out anything. Even if the writing is sub par, if I press long enough, I usually find my rhythm and break the block. The hardest part for me is getting the right idea to get started or covering the boring connective tissue between plot points. Many times, I'll type in [INSERT] and skip whole parts to keep the momentum going. Then I return to the [INSERT] instances when I'm more inspired.(less)

It feels like there is a constant swarm of emotion and experience and words inside me. The only way to survive it somewhat sane is to vent it. I vent it through writing. Writing allows me to create entirely new worlds and also map out the world inside my head.(less)

A Head Full of Ghosts unnerved me. It got under my skin. It affected me. If nothing else, good horror should do all those things. I'm not infatuated with the exorcism subgenre or supernatural horror in general. I enjoy some quality selections, but it ...more

The Waning by Christina Bergling
"This tale of abduction, imprisonment and torture (mental as well as physical) won't be for everyone but for people who like to look into the dark, I can highly recommend it. Great writing and characterisation, punchy and a proper page-turner."
The Rest Will Come by Christina Bergling
"Where do I begin?!?!

This story had me hooked from the very beginning. I loved the author’s voice and the way they pulled me into the story! I loved Emma’s character and appreciated that she had a lot of resilience before things went south.

You is a fascinating descent into a stalker's mind as he tells his victim their story. The blended first/second person narration is very effective, putting the reader in the mind of the stalker. The almost stream of consciousness delivery of the stor ...more

Kill Creek by Scott   Thomas

Kill Creek is a long, thick traditional haunted house tale. I felt torn about the book overall. In one instant, Thomas's prose is elegant and dazzling. In the next, it becomes belabored, heavy, and expected. I spent the read alternating between being ...more

The topic of cops shooting unarmed black men is difficult and controversial. I think it is made even more so when filtered through the lens of a teenage female witness. The Hate U Give walks the story from the gunshot itself through the aftermath for ...more
