Tracie McBride is my Woman In Horror today! Tracie is one of those women who is into everything. In addition to being a fantastic author, she is a mother with three children, a wife, and a teacher aide. She is an associate editor for Dark Moon Digest, and vice-president of the writers' cooperative Dark Continents Publishing.
Tracie is a short story writer, but she has an inkling to write novels. Speculative fiction is her true love. Of course, speculative fiction encompasses horror on so many levels. Supernatural, fantastical, and futuristic elements are all here. And Tracie's is dark, launching from reality.
Like most authors, the license to make stuff up is on the top of her list for being an author. In many of her tales, Tracie takes some of the more poignant moments from real life and weaves them into fascinating tales which are not only terrifying but totally unique to her.
I have picked her collection of short stories Ghosts Can Bleed, intermixed with glorious poems, to showcase her talents. This is a marvelous blend of eclectic tales, perfect for every lover of the Dark.
Tracie McBride is a New Zealander who lives in Melbourne, Australia with her husband and three children. Her work has appeared or is forthcoming in over 80 print and electronic publications, including Horror Library Vols 4 and 5, Dead Red Heart, Phobophobia and Horror for Good. Her debut collection Ghosts Can Bleed contains much of the work that earned her a Sir Julius Vogel Award in 2008. She helps to wrangle slush for Dark Moon Digest and is the vice president of Dark Continents Publishing. She welcomes visitors to her blog at http://traciemcbridewriter.wordpress.com/
