Horror Movies, Comics and Bad Television Reruns from my Childhood.

Amy Spector grew up in the United States surviving on a steady diet of old horror movies, television reruns and mystery novels.

After years of blogging about comic books, vintage Gothic romance book cover illustrations, and a shameful amount about herself, she decided to try her hand at writing stories. She found it more than a little like talking about herself in third person, and that suited her just fine.

She blames Universal for her love of horror, Edward Gorey for her love of British drama and writing for awakening the romantic that was probably there all along.

Amy lives in the Midwest with her husband and children, and her cats Bowie and Poe.

The influence is very subtle, but if you pay close attention, you'll notice there is always a rubber head unmasking at the very end. (less)

Christmas+Lights.jpg













It’s Christmas Eve. And like nearly every year, I’m at my in-laws house, the kids are asleep and I am hiding in the guest room with my laptop.

That sounds worse than it is. I love my in-laws, I’m just completely wiped from the last few weeks and my social threshold isn’t very high even when I’m at my best.

I’m not at my best.

I normally prefer reading—or writing—to hanging with extended family an...

“Sailors are like my overies due North”
Amy Spector

“Most of all, though, Daniel liked Max’s compassion for those around him. Yeah, he said it was fueled by guilt, but everyone’s life was full of those regretted moments, and most people didn’t change themselves to make up for it. It never occurred to most people to even try to be better.   Unable”

“Conventional people are roused to fury by departure from convention, largely because they regard such departure as a criticism of themselves.”
