Kate Monroe not only writes some great horror, she is also the editor for Siren's Call Publications. I first met her when Angelic Knight Press was accepting submissions for Satan's Toybox: Demonic Dolls. Her story Lullaby is included with other great stories.

Her bio:

Kate Monroe is a red-headed author and editor who lives in a quiet and inspirational corner of southern England. She has penchants for chocolate, horror and loud guitars, and a fatal weakness for red wine.
Her interests in writing range from horror to erotica, taking in historical romance and tales of the paranormal on the way; whatever she has dreamed about the night before is liable to find its way onto the page in some form or another...

Below is the description of Kiss Of an Angel:

Shannon Kiernan has never enjoyed Halloween, for each time that it passes with nothing out of the ordinary happening to her, her frustration increases. This year, though, everything will change when she finds it impossible to resist the pull towards the grim and forbidding manor at the end of the street.

Equally impossible to resist are the sensuous pleasures and dark secrets that await her there; and that which she finds will change her life forever...

Approximate length of this novella is 16,000 words.

A teaser for Playing With Fire:

Evie's woken up the morning after a wild party with a naked man in her bed before - that in itself isn't unusual.

But the man she finds in her bed this time is no ordinary man, and this is no ordinary love story. There's something about the mysterious stranger that she can't explain, and even though he won't tell her his name, she can't forget him.

He knows that he should stay away from her. He knows that his desire for her could put her in the path of the most terrible danger. Some things, though, cannot be defied...

Her short story in Satan's Toybox: Demonic Dolls is given a little praise below:

Lullaby by Kate Monroe is a wonderfully told heart rending tale of a doll that is passed down through generations of female family members. The doll has been waiting for the perfect playmate. Now finally a special little girl has received her and is chosen to be the one to help the doll do what it has always wanted to.

Visit Kate on her blog. Read her great tales. Kate Monroe is a Woman in Horror!
