A Bram Stoker Award nomination for “If Someone You Love Has Become a Vurdalak.”

The Horror Writers Association (HWA) just announced the Final Ballot for theΒ  2023 Bram Stoker Award finalists, and my short story “If Someone You Love Has Become a Vurdalak” is a nominee!!

It’s my first time as a Stoker finalist, and it means the world to me – my love for horror and the horror community runs deep, and it’s so moving to be recognized by them for this weird dirty queer addiction tale.

Big big love to the incredible The Dark magazine, for publishing it in the first place!
