"I like to include a fair amount of emotion in my stories – some would say that’s a female writer thing. I prefer my characters to be multifaceted, flawed and deep. The problem is finding the balance between adding those things to a story in measured doses and pushing them to a point where you’re resorting to melodrama. You want your character’s plight to reach your readers, to touch them, to move them, but you don’t want the readers overburdened by it. It’s a precarious line for a writer to walk, and I’m not so sure I always get it right." Chantal Boudreau

Chantal Boudreau is my Woman In Horror today! Chantal is another one of my Women In Horror who I share a tale with in the cancer anthology Let's Scare Cancer To Death. Her great story is One Lonely Night. All the sales for this great book go to cancer research.

Chantal is not only a great author, she is a super illustrator as well. I am intrigued by the art on her website http://chantellyb.wordpress.com/  . Also, if you go to Amazon and peruse her books, you will be able to click on the covers and as you read samples of her stories, you can also see her superb art work. Elevation(Fervor), and The Blood Is Strong: The Snowy Barrens Trilogy 1 are great examples. Her art is a grand mixture of Renaissance style. Very cool. In The Blood Is Strong, her art goes to the Native American style.

I enjoyed the sample reading so much I bought The Blood Is Strong: The Snowy Barrens Trilogy #1 and Shear Terror. I know I'll be back for more. 

Her books include an anthology called Tales For The Toilet. Okay, I'm intrigued and this is on my future list.

Chantal was one of my Women In Horror last year and she has added more to her portfolio since then. I am very impressed. No grass is growing under this superb author's feet. Go to her website, Amazon page, and Facebook page-all the links are above, and you will be as intrigued as I am.

Chantal Boudreau is a Woman In Horror!
