Shades & Shadows is back! We are thrilled to announce that we have been invited to participate in the L.A. North Hollywood Lit Crawl for the second year in a row!
This year, we’re bringing some of our all-star readers from the past year’s shows for an incredible reading event that is sure to thrill you.
Come see readings by:
Tiffany Tang is related to neither an ancient Chinese nor a powdered orange drink dynasty. She believes in writing true things and is most proud of the work she has done with the San Diego-based storytelling pioneers of So Say We All. Tiffany is an arts contributor to the San Diego Union-Tribune and a writer for Intrepid Theatre Company. Since the publication of creepy little death poems, she has also become an honorary member of the horror genre, which is surprising considering she spends most of her time avoiding anything attached to the words “scary,” “haunted” or “zombie.” This is Tiffany’s first book. tiffanyanntang.com.
Robert Payne Cabeen is a screenwriter, artist, and purveyor of narrative horror poetry. His screenwriting credits include Heavy Metal 2000, for Columbia TriStar, Sony Pictures, A Monkey’s Tale, and Walking with Buddha. Cabeen’s latest book, FEARWORMS: Selected Poems, was a 2015 Bram Stoker Award nominee. For more about FEARWORMS, visit fearworms.com.
Nicole D. Sconiers is an author and screenwriter living in the sunny jungle of L.A. She holds an MFA in creative writing from Antioch University, where she began experimenting with speculative fiction from a womanist perspective. Her debut short story collection Escape from Beckyville: Tales of Race, Hair and Rage was born there and took on a life of its own after she graduated. Her work has appeared in Neon V Magazine, The Absent Willow Review, Clutch Magazine, DrPhil.com and Possibilities: A State of Black Science Fiction Anthology.
Thomas Voorhies received a BFA in Illustration from the Rhode Island School of Design. He writes and paints out of a loft in downtown Los Angeles, and together with Lex Hrabe he has written the Quarantine novel trilogy, published by Egmont USA, under the pen name Lex Thomas.
