Women Writers of Horror or Dark Fantasy Who Twitter


It used to be that writers of Horror or Dark Fantasy stories were predominantly men. And it still might be that way but women are growing in the writing of those genres. Since joining Twitter I’ve discovered several women, with very interesting Tweets, who write Horror or Dark Fantasy or both.

If you are female and write either genre, DM me on Twitter or leave a comment and I’ll be glad to add your name to this list. Maybe we can grow the list.

  1. I’m not on Twitter, but I am a dark fantasy/paranormal horror female writer. Staceykatheryn.wordpress.com. You can find pieces of my first novel at Sangueseries.wordpress.com..I loved this post. I’m glad to find there are other female authors in the same genres!

  2. Just came across this – are you pretty much sticking to print writers? I write and produce an award-winning audio drama, 19 Nocturne Boulevard, which is an anthology that ranges through horror, dark fantasy, light fantasy, sci fi, dark social commentary, and humor.

    Oh, and I’m female.
