What does she write about?
Hmmm...potato chip bag creatures on the beach, possessed monkey bridges in Vietnam, retired Inuit shamans, crime sprees with cockroaches, Pennsylvania tea bugs, the peculiar addictions or Salem witches, dust storm bunnies in Kansas, California ghost towns, Jersey serial killer heros, and more. Yep, you got it. She is all over the place and clearly has some issues.
Why horror and sci-fi, you say?
For 20 years, she's been a professor at a small community college teaching the most feared course on the planet: Public Speaking. Witnessing grown people weep, beg, scream, freak out and pass out is just another delightful day on the job for her. Terror down to the bone. She's seen it all.
Of course, her parents raised her all wrong too. Cause isn't that what parents do? Sitting her down in front of the same films they were watching. Ahh, the days of one shared screen for the whole fam. Her clearest, youngest memories include, The Poseidon Adventure, Night of the Living Dead, The Shining, Baron Blood and Suspiria. Sorry there, Disney.
She's won numerous artistic & academic awards over the years for her projects in Communication and seats in her classes sell quicker than tickets to a Rolling Stones concert. J.C. also loves goats of any kind, even the ones that faint.
