Nina writes what she refers to as "horror's softer side." It's not too graphic, scary or intense for she has a deep love of monsters that show compassion...even though they'll still rip your guts out and feed on them if the occasion calls for it.

Classic horror is a satisfying indulgence but it doesn't have to always be horrific to be enjoyable. For instance, zombies no longer simply lumber about, they can now flat-out run (Dawn of the Dead (2004)), hold down jobs (iZombie), lead a group of their own (Land of the Dead) and even cooperate with humans to an extent (Z Nation).

And she knows there are others out there that share these views so to those...welcome sisters and brothers to fiction our way.

This is a really good question. Years ago, wayyyyy back when I was a teenager, I read a book (it was so long ago that I don't remember the name of it, sorry) where a young girl's deep backyard was full of shadows -- some shaped like people but there was no sun and no people attached to them!

One day, she saw them moving on their own. Well, the girl made contact with them and found that they lived in a whole 'nother world in her backyard. They invited her into their world and it was great! I was enthralled by the thought of visiting a shadow world back then and kinda still am now.

The things I would do in that dark, magical place? Well, I would eat there, of course, because those shadow people ate shadow food and the food would replenish itself to it's original shape as long as they left a bite or two for it to have something to reform itself.

Also while visiting, I would love to drive a shadow car, read a shadow book, visit a zoo full of shadow animal - would they even stay in their cages? and fly in a shadow airplane. but mostly, i would want to spy on people living their lives on our side. Might even haunt them a bit. *laughs*

Hmmm...thank you for this question, it's given me "potential plot" food for thought.

Always,
Nina

Storms series by Tim Dooley and the Walking Dead: Woodbury series by Robert Kirkman and Jay Bonansinga. I’m late with the latter, I know, but in my defense, I haven’t even watched "The Walking Dead" television series yet. I'll be searching for more zombie books and cozy mysteries to read as time permits.(less)

"Good bed time horror story

You know those books where everyone gets out somehow....this is not one of them. I loved it, a bunch of kids, a demon, and a willingness to kill everyone....LOVED IT"
