Winter is coming.
Maybe. Possibly. Hopefully. One day.
But who says you have to wait until winter to feel that chill up your spine? We have a lineup of exciting authors for you, including our first returning readers! Two of our authors will be on our stage for the second time, introducing you to their newest works!
Coming off of two shows in October for the Lit Crawl events in SF and L.A., we’re incredibly excited to continue our journey and our efforts to build a community of genre fiction authors and fans, connecting readers and writers. We can’t wait to share the night with you.
We proudly present readings by:
Tom Voorhies received a BFA in Illustration from the Rhode Island School of Design. He currently lives in Los Angeles and is the co-author of the Quarantine Novel trilogy. Published by Egmont USA.
Lauren Perez is an LA-based writer, with publications in the Collagist, Bartleby Snopes, and Corvus Magazine. She also once wrote a 40 page paper on cannibals, back before they were cool.
Tim Chizmar lost himself in evil, scary books as a child. One day, a morally righteous librarian refused to check some out. Reading about demons, beheadings, and cannibalism wasn’t the norm in Linesville, PA. Tim’s mother insisted that her son be allowed to read whatever he wanted. The upset librarian said, “You son is going to grow up to be a great horror writer one day – OR A SERIAL KILLER.” As of this writing, Tim has not killed anyone. Yet. But he has written and sold many screenplays in Hollywood. When he’s not burying bodies, Tim is a comedian, actor, writer, director, and producer living in Los Angeles. What drives his success is knowing that somewhere in Pennsylvania, a librarian is praying for his soul.
Justin Robinson Much like film noir, Justin Robinson was born and raised in Los Angeles. He splits his time between editing comic books, writing prose, and wondering what that disgusting smell is. Degrees in Anthropology and History prepared him for unemployment, but an obsession with horror fiction and a laundry list of phobias provided a more attractive option.
Gretchen McNeil is the author of YA horror novels POSSESS, TEN, and 3:59, as well as the new mystery/suspense series Don’t Get Mad, beginning in 2014 with GET EVEN and continuing in 2015 with GET DIRTY, all with Balzer + Bray for HarperCollins. Gretchen also contributed an essay to the Dear Teen Me anthology from Zest Books.
Gretchen is a former coloratura soprano, the voice of Mary on G4’s Code Monkeys and she sings with the LA-based circus troupe Cirque Berzerk. Gretchen blogs with The Enchanted Inkpot and was a founding member of the vlog group the YARebels. She is repped by Ginger Clark of Curtis Brown, Ltd.
