JILL BEHE - WOMAN IN HORROR!

Jill Behe is my Woman In Horror today! She wrote a rather lengthy piece for her Woman In Horror post last year  http://www.blazemcrob.com/2013/03/jill-s-behe-woman-in-horror.html . This is a great read and I suggest you take a peek.

Jill is quite an author, and I really love her work. We share pages in the zombie erotica anthology fifty shades of decay in which she wrote S.P.Q.R., a very intriguing story. She also has a short story, How do you do it, Mr. Sullivan? in Midnight Movie Creature Feature 2.

That being said, the piece of hers I enjoyed the most was her novel Mossy Creek. It is a great suspense tale, riddled with humor, mystery, romance, and heart-ache, all taking place in a close-knit community. What surprises me is that it is not available for purchase anymore. That bothers me because I believe it to be a great tale. It should be demanding an audience. I wish to see it back up in print and ebook real soon!

One piece from my blog post of last year that I will post here is the very bottom part of what Jill said:


  "With February’s honoring of Women In Horror, and now, with this bonus month of March, were I to say anything to my sisters out there, young to mature, and especially for those who might be fence-sitting, pondering whether or not to take their shot in this crazy world of writing and publishing, it would be:
YES. 
And with extreme prejudice!
Over the years, I’ve written hundreds of stories, but in the end, that’s only half the equation.  There’s that other half, that if neglected, forgotten, or not believed in, causes our art to suffer, our dreams to never meet reality. 
And why?
Because our work must ultimately be read.
That’s the whole point.
J.S.B. "

Yes, Jill is so right! Your works must be read, ladies. Remember, it's merely one word after another. Let your stories flow!

And so I say once again, without a doubt, Jill Behe is a Woman In Horror!

Biography: Jill is the eldest of four children born to Christian parents in East Central Pennsylvania.  It took a while, but the rebel within finally broke free.  After shocking family and friends by enlisting in the U.S. Army, then marrying—not much of a shock—birthing three sons, and getting divorced—again not much of a shock—she’s now settled in, back in the great State of PA ... until the next adventure.
She has a murder-mystery/cozy titled “Mossy Creek,” published by Triskaideka Books, 2011, a co-authored zombie-erotica short titled “S.P.Q.R.” in the anthology “Fifty Shades of Decay,” published by Angelic Knight Press, 2013, and yet another short story of horror, “How do you do it, Mr. Sullivan,” in the anthology “Midnight Movie Creature Feature 2,” a May December Publication, 2013!

Bio number two:


Jill is the eldest of four children born to Christian parents in East Central Pennsylvania. It took a while, but the rebel within finally broke free. After shocking family and friends by enlisting in the US Army, then marrying--not much of a shock--birthing three sons, and getting divorced--again not much of a shock--she's now settling in, back in the great State of PA ... until the next adventure.
Jill began writing nonsense stories for her siblings and friends while in grade school, probably from the time she learned cursive. Her writing has improved. (A good thing.) With time, maturity and persistence, she continues to hone her craft in a variety of genres ... and at the urgent butt-kicking of her friends.
During the thirty-odd years she was 'away from home,' she never lost her love of creating prose. It was only a few years ago, she met another writer, and accepted an invitation to join a writing group. Not only did she make many new friends, she also learned more about the craft, and how to market her work.
To date, the Rebel has three novels, a novelette, and over a hundred and fifty short and flash fiction stories in her arsenal of completed works, with more on the table to finish.
Currently, she's working on a sequel to Mossy Creek.

4.0 out of 5 stars High Quality Cheese April 10, 2013
By NJMetal
Format:Paperback
MIDNIGHT MOVIE CREATURE FEATURE 2 showcases thirteen stories that rival every cheesy Saturday late night horror flick you've ever seen in your life. Continuing the tradition set in MayDecember Publications first Midnight Movie Creature Feature, this collection continues and reinforces the campieness. If you love a cut-rate radio host introducing low budget monster movies on late night cable then then is the place for you!

The bakers dozen of tales contains some real gems. The opening story is a Hitchcock-esque story of Were-animals set to the tone of a medical report and is brilliant in scope and content. The collection sallys forth with stories about sea creatures, creepy toys, worms, zombies, roaches and even a few unsavory humans. All the contributions really embrace the concept of the late night b-movie yet are solidly written so as the only thing that is campy is the spirit of the story.

There were two stories that felt 'off-the-mark' to me. They didn't feel very 'creaturish' to me and seemed a bit out of place in this collection. But those two are the exception to the rule. And to those story's credit they are both still solid stories even if the editor felt they did exist somewhere on the fringes of the collection.

You can never go wrong picking up an anthology from MayDecember Publications. Continuing that tradition is this beauty, MIDNIGHT MOVIE CREATURE FEATURE 2 will fulfill all your monster story needs at a price that won't frighten anyone. If you know this publishing house then you won't be disappointed and if you've never read anything from MayDecember this is the perfect place.

Fifty Shades of Decay by DeMarco, Guy Anthony, Ethridge, Benjamin Kane, Rosamillia, Armand and Marquitz, Tim (Feb 17, 2013)

Book Description

February 17, 2013
**Mature Audiences Only**

What's sexy about zombies? 51 authors answered that question with wild, weird, and titillating tales. From love during the apocalypse, to love that goes beyond the grave and back again, to love that well, never dies, you'll find these pages filled with desires demanding to be fufilled, hungers to be slaked, and lovers who won't let a little thing like death (or undeath) come between them. Do zombies need sex as much as they need brains? What would you do to bring a lover back from the dead? What if you survived the apocalypse only to find yourself alone and sexually frustrated?

Light some candles, put on some mood music, and cozy up with 50 Shades of Decay. The zombie sexpocalypse has begun...
4.0 out of 5 stars A myriad of stories!, March 15, 2013

This review is from: Fifty Shades of Decay (Kindle Edition)
First, I want to reiterate, this book is rated MA for a reason. This is not a book for the squeamish either! With fifty-one different authors, there is plenty of variety in this collection. And while some were able to gross out the best of 'em, (me), there were others that ... dare I say ... touched me with sincerity and possibly a bit of romanticism. And then there were others that were just plain hot. :)

If you enjoy zombies, and can handle a fair amount of guts, gore and ... other parts ... then I suggest a read. With fifty-one stories, there's bound to be a couple for everyone's taste!

Mossy Creek by Jill Behe (Jun 30, 2011)

 Welcome to Mossy Creek. We’re small and easy-going with a lot of community pride and camaraderie. What we don’t have a lot of is crime. Mossy Creek is a close-knit laid-back little borough, so close to the southern border of Pennsylvania, it’s almost in West Virginia. Townsfolk like to say: “We’re south enough to lend credence to our slight drawl, but sufficiently north of the Mason-Dixon to be damn Yankees.” Times they are a changing. When evil rears its ugly head, the whole town is stunned. But no one was prepared for murder...especially one involving a teenager. Come sit a spell. I’ll tell you all about it.

With Behe's "Mossy Creek," I sat down with my Kindle PC, I read the work straight through, start to finish, a first since reading on the computer isn't normally my preferred method. How'd that happen, the author carrying me through in a single sitting? The suspense and ease of read in the way the novel's constructed. The characters were believable and I very much enjoyed the novel's narrator and protagonist, Maggie, and her love-interest, Wyatt. The novel has humor, mystery, and heartache. And with me from a small town in Oregon, the novel took me back to what living in a close-knit community feels like.

Room for improvement? Don't know. If there's any complaint, it would be the work left me wanting more. It's my hope that the author strongly considers making this the start of a series. Now that I've visited Mossy Creek, I'd love to return. Anyone who loves romantic mysteries, as well as pages that just seem to fly by, then "Mossy Creek" is definitely a book to pick up.
