I’m blogging on the subject of horror this weekend at the Carina Press website:

In the past years, horror has become a favorite genre of mine for when I want something escapist and different.  I see many comments from people on the internet, especially women, who say that horror isn’t their thing.  I always thought that, too, until I stopped reading suspense/thrillers for a few years because they were getting too creepy, too centered on the many gruesome ways serial killers could torture and kill women.  I believe the book that pushed me over the edge was Birdman by Mo Hayder.  A well-written page turner, but very gory. Werewolves, evil ghosts, and mutant bug invasions began to seem like a nice alternative.
