BILLIE SUE MOSIMAN-WOMAN IN HORROR


Billie Sue Mosiman is quite a prolific writer. She is also highly skilled at the craft and writes compelling horror. To receive Edgar Award Nominations AND Bram Stoker Award Nominations says a lot. She is such a dynamic person as well, all over Facebook, supporting other authors, spreading cheer, and handing out great advice. Speaking of advice, go to her blog and garner valuable tidbits amongst the great interviews she conducts over there. Her words of wit concerning Amazon and Kindle should be read by all writers. I was going to add some other auto-biographical information here, but Billie Sue did such a great job on her Amazon page that I brought it over here for you to enjoy.

I am a thriller, suspense, and horror novelist, a short fiction writer, and a lover of words. In a diary when I was thirteen years old I wrote, "I want to grow up to be a writer." It seems that was always my course. My books have been published since 1984 and two of them received an Edgar Award Nomination for best novel and a Bram Stoker Award Nomination for most superior novel. I've been represented by the William Morris Agency, belonged to many professional writing organizations, and wrote columns and reviews in magazines. I have been a regular contributor to a myriad of anthologies and magazines, with more than 150 short stories published. My work has been in such diverse publications as Horror Show Magazine and Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine. I have one collection of my short stories called DARK MATTER in hardcover and several e-book collections. For a while I taught writing for Writer's Digest and for AOL online, and gave writing workshops locally in Texas.
Once I was on a panel in Austin, Texas at a book conference where the then First Lady of Texas, Laura Bush, attended and later had me sign my book for her. She, of course, became the nation's First Lady.
I was born in Alabama and live now in Texas on a small ranch.
My work has been predominately suspense thrillers, but I also wrote a western historical, a trilogy of vampire novels, a travel memoir, and, of course, many short stories. My latest novel is BANISHED, a dark fantasy horror novel involving fallen angels. Most of my work has been made available at kindle.com for the e-book reader, including my Stoker-nominated novel, WIDOW, and my Edgar-nominated novel, NIGHT CRUISING.
I love to read (especially on my Kindle), paint, take photographs, and travel. I can name two inspiring persons in my life. One was my grandmother, Naomi, who by simply loving me unconditionally gave me faith in myself--and, every day and forever, my husband, who has lived this adventure with me.
Because of my love of storytelling, I've been fortunate enough to make a lifelong investment in writing stories and novels.

A little bit about her great book Banished:

Ed Gorman, award winning author of BAD MOON RISING, says: "Banished by Billie Sue Mosiman is one of the most provocative and compelling fantasies I've read in a long time. Storytelling that is both page-turning and stunning." When the Queen of the Fallen Angels came to earth again she took the dead body of a ten-year-old native girl on an island. It was the 1200s and life was primitive, but Angelique managed to rule the people for two hundred years until Columbus arrived. Escaping her island home, the little angel with her malevolent intent, wandered through the world using humans to do her biding as her parents and guardians. Then she brought down Nisroc, an angel she trusted to be her partner and helpmate. The problem was, Nisroc wasn't like Angelique. Nisroc learned to love. And he had to flee from his life with the terrible child before he lost what soul he had left.

If this sounds like a great read, well, it's because it is. Visit Amazon and look at the ton of other books she has!

Billie Sue Mosiman is a Woman in Horror!
