 "To write is to breathe; to breathe is to live; therefore, I live to write." T.K. Millin 

 

"Let them eat tuna!" Efi Loo

   

 T.K. Millin is my Woman In Horror today! I met T.K. a while back. She was an author in Angelic Knight Press' anthology Satan's Toybox: Demonic Dolls with her tale Mr. Jingle. This tale is quite a chiller. Below is a review of her tale and a link to the reviewer.


T.K., with the help of her illustrious feline companion Efi Loo, have started up Efi Loo Publishing, Inc. Fiction In A Flash, a collection of six tales of terror under 1,500 words, is her latest book, and another one is coming. Don't miss the new one and be sure to read the first one.

T.K. was one of my Women In Horror last year as well. Here is what I had to say about her then:

T.K. Millin is new on the scene, but she is already writing some great horror. Her story Mr. Jingle in Satan's Toybox: Demonic Dolls is a must read! Not only can she spin a great horror tale, but she also is aware of real life horror and acts to combat it. She has a soft spot in her huge heart for animals and does whatever she can to see they are not abused or neglected. Read both of her blogs: Efi Loo, the CatVamp, has her own blog with wonderful flash fiction.

I am proud this lady is my friend, and I want her to write more great stories for me to read!

As you can see, she is indeed writing more stories.

T.K.Millin writes horror and does good for animals and humans as well. How many times do we see where horror writers give so much of themselves? T.K. goes over the top.

Read and enjoy the below passages and find out more about T.K. Millin: Woman In Horror, and Woman Of Mercy.

Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Writing Fiction in a Flash was a blast!
Mostly, I spend my time writing middle-grade and adult mysteries, along with an occasional children's short story.  For pleasure, I enjoy reading a good horror story so when a group of fellow authors approached and encouraged me to join their flash fiction community in the horror genre, my curiosity was peaked.
I continually look for ways to challenge myself as a writer and venturing into the world of flash fiction was a venue that pushed me beyond limits I never knew existed.  Developing a new story line each week, based around a theme, drove my imagination wild!  Having to write it in less than 1,500 words, pushed me to new heights!
Each of these stories began as one writer's desire to push their limits on a blank screen with a blinking cursor.  And in the end, wound up creating the pages of,  Fiction in a Flash!  Six Tales of Terror.      
"To write is to breathe, to breathe is to live; therefore, I live to write." -T.K. Millin   

From the Inside Flap

A little backstory about the tales you are about to read...
Welcome to the world of Flash Fiction!  Flash fiction was started by different communities of writers from all genres, who set out to challenge, and inspire, one another to write a short story (usually between 500 and 1500 words) each week based on a different theme.  This platform provided authors the opportunity to keep their creative juices flowing and to have their work read and critiqued by other writers.  After each chapter heading, you will find the theme the story was based on.
Thank you for your interest in Fiction in a Flash!  It is my desire this collection of six short tales takes you somewhere far, far, away; even if only for the very short time it will take you to read them.
