Buffy fangirl for life!

I am Ally, I am a postgraduate student of journalism.

I have worked with Screaming Dreams publishing as assistant editor and am currently writing a horror short story.

I love comics and horror movies and am a collector of anything Halloween related. I strived as a SFX make-up artist for a few years and am still passionate about prosthetics.

Any content you would like to see on this blog, don’t hesitate to contact me!

I am always looking for passionate and interesting characters to interview and contribute:

  1. Hey Ally! I love your blog! I found it by accident while writing a post for the YA Scream Queens (a group of female horror writers who banded together to share the terror!). Really loving what I see here!


    • Awww thank you SO much!! I am glad you like! I wanted to create a blog celebrating women in horror and show the world that women in horror are more than just the naked girl running from a psycho! hehe
      Does YA Scream Queens have a site? I’d be interested in checking it out!! ๐Ÿ˜€ xxxx

  2. Hi there, great looking blog. I found it via the Horror Blogger Alliance. I was wondering is there room on the site for a male horror author to possibly be interviewed?

  3. I certainly have a few views on female horror figures. From how the role of women in horror has changed, and that there is a gap right now for a new ‘Ripley’ to come along and kick some horror ass.
