Sirrah Medeiros is my Woman In Horror today! We go back a ways. Back to the days when I was a writer wondering which path I wanted to take. I had written for many years as a ghostwriter for traditional publishers and just did not wish to go that route any longer. I'm not going to get embroiled in any discussions about that here. This is Sirrah's post and it doesn't matter anyway. We all decide for ourselves.

I stumbled onto a group of writers helping other writers and was quite intrigued. I tossed some stuff out from time to time and made some great friends there, Sirrah being one. Sometimes good things go away for one reason or another. This was one of them. But Sirrah and I are still friends and I respect her work greatly.

You will notice two great publications below. One is a stand alone collection of poems,  novel size, titled Seasons of Sentiment: A Collection Of Poetry and Prose. As she says, "Sirrah transcribes a collection of poetry and prose that explores life’s complexities. She captures the experiences of life with humor, heart, and a keen insight into human emotion." And this is exactly what she does. Sirrah has witnessed many experiences along the path of her life, and she gives her take on the ups and downs of life in a most charming way.

In the anthology I Believe In Werewolves, Sirrah wrote a fantastic tale, Once Bitten-Not So Shy, which was picked by Spirited Woman for their Top 12 New Year's Book Picks-Great Inspirational List Of Reads last year. This is really amazing because we're talking about a horror story. How many horror tales do you know that inspire people? This one of Sirrah's does. Her story brings the reader into the life of a tormented soul, torn between two worlds, one of human morality, and the other of a bestial, seductive existence.

She is a great person and a credit to all horror writers. There is more on the horizon for Sirrah, so keep your peepers peeled!

Sirrah is a Marine Corps Veteran! I salute you, Sirrah! Semper Fi!

Read Sirrah's superb book of poetry and her horror tale. Enjoy them both, for you will be reading words from a master of the craft.

Sirrah Medeiros is a Woman In Horror!

Blaze McRob

Sirrah Medeiros was born in 1967, in Cleveland, Ohio, the youngest of seven children, and the only girl. Sirrah grew up in the small rural township, Rootstown, Ohio, before moving to Kingsport, Tennessee, where she graduated high school. Sirrah has spent much of her life traveling to, and living in, various parts of the world. A Marine Corps veteran, Sirrah uses much of that travel and life experience to enrich her writing, weaving tales of intricate texture and detail.
With a keen interest in science, Sirrah graduated from the University of Maryland with a BS in Environmental Management. Sirrah enjoys writing mysteries and horror stories often times based on a scientific theme.
Sirrah is the author of numerous short stories and poems. Most recently, Netbound Publishing published Sirrah in the horror anthology I BELIEVE IN WEREWOLVES. This collaborative effort contains her award-winning short story ONCE BITTEN - NOT SO SHY. The Spirited Woman's New Year's Top 12 Book List recognized Sirrah in January 2012 for this titillating story.

At first I was going to refer to this as a collection, but the more I read the more I realized this was much more. What we have here is a gathering, a gathering of wonderful thoughts and ideas from a very imaginative and amazing writer. The essence of entertaining and thought provoking fills these pages from top to bottom. From poetry to short stories there is something for everyone tucked away in this neat little package. Having been a fan of Sirrah for some time now there was no doubt in my mind that I would enjoy this book, but never in my wildest dreams did I think it would affect me the way it did. Her poetry is captivating and enchanting, real and humorous. She captures the everyday in such a colorful and vivid manner that once I began reading Seasons of Sentiment, I could not stop. I know, that sounds so cliché, but I can assure you that it was the case. In the middle she has a sprinkling of short stories that I know will delight any reader opening the pages of this wonderful book. I highly recommend Seasons of Sentiment not only to fans of poetry or fans of short stories, but to anyone who enjoys experiencing life and all of the beauty that surrounds us each day. Seasons of Sentiment is one book that will never gather dust sitting on a shelf.

I do not often read werewolves stories often but I got asked to review this and well since it is Halloween time and did not have any plans for the weekend I decided to read this.
Wow! What a great bunch of stories.Some were longer and others and some I did enjoy more than others but it kept me reading up to the end of the entire ebook. None of these stories scared me but I am not easy to scare.
