Please Vote for me in the 2014 Masters of the Macabre Competition!

I'm very pleased to announce that I've been selected as a finalist for the 2014 Master of the Macabre challenge, hosted by Horror Addicts.  I had to write and record a horror story incorporating the following elements:

Location: London
Item: Gasoline
Creature Origin: A Child’s bedroom

You can listen to my story "The Thing Under the Bed" here (at the 48 minute mark) or read it here.

After you have, please send an e-mail to horroraddicts (at) gmail (dot) com with the subject line "MMM" and in the body say you want to vote for me.  Thanks everybody!


  1. I voted! Your story truly was horrifying- that poor poor little girl! =( Fingers crossed you win!

    1. Thanks, Leandra! It's weird, it was an idea I had in Montreal last year in August and I thought I would write a novel...then they gave me almost the exact perfect prompt for this competition!
