Graveyard Shift Sister: Nuzo Onoh

I’ve just started a series of Black female horror author spotlights and interviews on the Graveyard Shift Sisters blog.

Graveyard Shift Sisters founder Ashlee Blackwell has created this eye-catching tagline for her blog: “Purging the Black Female Horror Fan from the Margins”.

Ashlee is a Philadelphia-based critical media writer who specializes in writing about film (sci-fi/horror) with a niche focus on representations of Black women in horror: fans, artists, filmmakers, and characters. She’s also curated film screenings, developed creative programs and organized logistics for arts based non-profit organizations, most notably with Lil Filmmakers, Inc.

I’m so pleased to be working with Ashlee on this project of featuring Indie Black female horror authors. Read about their writing process, what inspires them and how they came to love horror.

Sound like a tiny, niche market?  Not anymore.

The marvelous Angela Bassett. Above in American Horror Story - Coven.  Also see her in Supernova and Strange Days.

My first victim, er… volunteer is Nuzo Onoh, author of The Reluctant Dead, a collection of African horror short stories. Head on over to the Graveyard Shift Sisters website and check out her work.
