It’s still Women in Horror month, so please take a few minutes and get to know author Sheri Williams. I already knew she is a fun, amazing person and a talented writer, but there were a few things I didn’t know. Let’s find out…
How long have you been writing?
Um….since second grade? No. I really started writing about 4 years ago.
What draws you to horror?
I like to kill people. Sounds horrible, but it’s true. I’m a super optimistic person and I try to be happy, so the anger has to go somewhere. Every annoying parent at school drop off…..they all die horribly in my stories.
Do you write any other genres?
Oh yeah. Romance. Fantasy. And middle grade under a pen name 😁
Is there a genre you’d like to attempt but haven’t?
Ummm. I’ve sorta tried a bunch, in different variations. I really love Gothic stuff so would love to play around with that more.
Do you think women horror authors have a hard time getting acknowledged?
Definitely. It just doesn’t seem to be as recognized. Although, the real fans are rabid!
What is the most difficult thing you’ve ever written and why?
My first book. Fairy tale romance. It’s still the book I’m most proud of.
Who are some amazing female authors (from any genre, any style, any time-period)?
Misti Murphy, she’s my wifey. She writes dead sexy contemporary romance. I’m a huge P. Mattern fan. Quenby Olsen writes fantastic books. Huge fan. Can’t forget Lindsey Goddard, that chick is awesome. And then there’s Anne Rice and Anne McCaffrey….my heroes.
Besides writing, what brings a smile to your face?
My daughters. My hubs. Books. Doctor Who. Geeky stuff in general. And donuts.
Did you have a favorite book as a child?
Alice in Wonderland. Still my favorite to this day.
Here’s a tough one: What’s your favorite color?
Blue, color of my hair and the Tardis.
What are you working on now, and where do you see yourself in the future?
A middle grade alternative history, magical realism. And a paranormal (occult) thriller with a horror aspect.
Where can we find you on the web?
