February’s Finale: Four Female Ghosts and Why They’re Scary

Just to show you how into this ghost thing I am…that’s me. The other features in the photo were added by my sister-in-law Maureen Schoonover.

I’m very thankful I could participate in the New England Horror Writers’ Women in Horror Month blog series! “Wandering Women: Four Types of Female Ghosts and Why They’re Scary” examines why creatures like La Llorona, the churel, preta and the noppera-bo send us running for the hills. You can read it here: http://nehw.blogspot.com/2017/03/women-in-horror-month-finale.html

“Wandering Women” is the final installment in the February series. The other six posts are here:

Part 1: Morgan Sylvia examines identity in Go Ahead. Make My Day.

Part 2: E.A. Black tells tales of her experiences with E.A. Poe in Baltimore (can we say “girl after my own heart?”)

Part 3: Elaine Pascale explains How WIHM Saved This Final Girl…

Part 4: Juss Stinson offers advice for fledgling horror writers.

Part 5: April Hawks shares thoughts on Women in Horror month and the horror writing community.

Part 6: Christa Carmen addresses February’s Women in Horror Month as a platform to explore the dreaded question: Do you believe in writer’s block?
