“Arbor Day” is here—join me for a reading with other WICKED WOMEN at the virtual COFFEEHOUSE OF THE DAMNED tonight at 7 pm!

I’m thrilled to announce that my short story “Arbor Day”—creepy trees and bodies is all I’m going to reference—is now available in the newest New England Horror Writers anthology, Wicked Women!

Want a preview of this awesome antho and my story as well? Tonight at 7 pm, I’ll be reading with Christine Lajewski, Jennifer Williams, Elaine Pascale, Sara Marks, and Morgan Sylvia, and I’m the last one of the evening.

HELLNOTES calls THE SHADOWS BEHIND “incredibly smart writing”

Hellnotes Reviews Masthead

Hellnotes, a major reviewer of horror fiction, film, and art, has reviewed my latest short story collection, The Shadows Behind, and given it a rave! Reviewer Elaine Pascale has written: “The stories within tell of lingering loss via imaginative and incredibly smart writing. Schoonover writes of grief and regret that follows like a shadow, and the stories in this collection will remain like a shadow for some time after you finish reading…the writing is intelligent and the themes transcend genre. Add this book to your summer reading list.”

I am SO EXCITED about this! You can read the full review here: https://hellnotes.com/the-shadows-behind-book-review/
