I have 2 of my horror stories published in the new issue of Subcutaneous Magazine
The first called The Woman, The Roomis a fictional tale based on my real life situation. Some of you may know of my illness and what it is doing to me, I guess conveying it in a fictional horror tale is my way of dealing with it.
The 2nd story is Wax Dollsa fictional tale of a bad family situation and one young woman’s way to deal with it. You may be reminded of a true story of a New England family tragedy when reading it and the popular limerick that accompanied the tragedy, but I assure you this tale is a work of fiction.
I also have original artwork in the magazine of a shrouded death figure done in charcoal and pencil.
