Women in Horror Month - Ginger Nuts

It's February, it's Valentines Day, and my gorgeous husband's birthday, and my adorable niece and nephew's birthdays and the Wallet Moths are tearing at their paper wings.

February also means Women in Horror month and the wonderful Jim McLeod of Ginger Nuts of Horror is celebrating. Jim has invited a bunch of horror writers to write about the female writer who inspired them to write and a female writer who is publishing now that we should all take notice of. The series kicks off today with Nancy Kilpatrick who talks about Mary Shelley, Shirley Jackson and Tanith Lee, alongside Sandra Kasturi and Colleen Anderson. My article will appear some time this month featuring Emily Bronte, Enid Blyton and... (ooh, the suspense).

Other events:

Mark West will be publishing his Mixtape Blog Post where writers will be recommending horror stories by women. I will be wittering on there too.

Kevin Bufton will be hosting interviews with female horror writers. Yes, yes, I may be talking nonsense there too.
