Biography

Christa Carmen
Christa Carmen's debut collection, Something Borrowed, Something Blood-Soaked, was published in 2018 by Unnerving, and additional work has been featured in Fireside Magazine, Year's Best Hardcore Horror, and the Bram Stoker-nominated Not All Monsters: A Strangehouse Anthology by Women of Horror and The Streaming of Hill House: Essays on the Haunting Netflix Adaption.

When she's not writing, she keeps chickens, uses a ouija board to ghost-hug her dear departed beagle, and reads books like Mary Who Wrote Frankenstein and The Gashlycrumb Tinies to her daughter. Most of her work comes from gazing upon the ghosts of the past or else into the dark corners of nature, those places where whorls of bark become owl eyes and deer step through tunnels of hanging leaves and creeping briers only to disappear.

  • Both Not All Monsters: A Strangehouse Anthology by Women of Horror and The Streaming of Hill House: Essays on the Haunting Netflix Adaption have made the 2020 Bram Stoker Awards® Preliminary Ballot for Superior Achievement in an Anthology and Superior Achievement in Non-Fiction, respectively. Congrats to editors Sara Tantlinger and Kevin J. Wemore, Jr.!
  • Horrorbound.net calls Something Borrowed, Something Blood-Soaked "Matrimony, Addiction, Feminism in a Package!" Read the full review here.
  • Christa Carmen will be performing the voice of Abigail Somberlain for the audiobook adaptation of Dean Kuhta's epic fantasy novel Silvarum.
