Massacre Magazine’s Women in Horror – Day One

During February we will be highlighting Massacre Magazine’s Women in Horror

women of horror banner 1.2

Issue One of Massacre Magazine featured these talented writers:

Tracy Kuhn PicTracy Kuhn – Horror is for Boys…

Tracy Kuhn is a freelance writer and editor who lives in York, England, with her husband and two daughters. She’s always written short stories and gets her inspiration from being generally nosey. She only recently came out as a fiction writer and has had several short stories published under a pen name, in a variety of magazines. She has a flash fiction story in an anthology and has had several stories published by Ether Books.
She has also had several pieces of non-fiction published. She has recently found herself in the world of YA horror after re-discovering her cache of horror novels from her teens, and is currently halfway through her first novel.
She spends far too much time on Twitter and Facebook and recently started a blog which is supposed to be about writing, but usually ends up a little bit ranty.

Dana Wright – Demon Darkling

Dana and Tadpole 2013Dana has always had a fascination with things that go bump in the night.  It began with two cut out Halloween decorations of Dracula and his Bride that she kept up year round, much to the concern of her parents. Writing and reading have always been her passion. She is often found playing at the local bookstore where she works as a manager. In her off hours, she tries not to maim herself with crochet hooks or knitting needles, watching scary monster movies with her husband and furry kids or blogging about books. More commonly, she is chained to her computers, writing like a woman possessed. Coffee and chocolate at the ready, she loves to read and is pretty sure her to be read pile will one day crush her in her sleep. She is currently working on two young adult fiction novels and a menagerie of horror stories.

Julia Kavan – Safe Harbour

Seneca gifBorn in the University city of Cambridge, England, Julia has spent most of her life living in Cambridgeshire – atmospheric and the perfect inspiration for ghost stories.
She loves exploring the darker side of human nature, writing psycho-sexual and psychological thrillers, horror and supernatural mysteries.
She finds inspiration in the British landscape, art, photography and music.  When she isn’t writing you can find her rambling (or tripping over) in forests or being crushed against the barriers at a rock gig – she loves the great outdoors and deafening music equally (and has a death wish…really, she’s too old for gigs).
She has also taught creative writing classes for over ten years, whilst writing screenplays, tackling novels and experimenting with short stories.
