Maria Alexander is a dark fiction writer. Her credits include stories in Gothic.net, Chiaroscuro and Paradox Magazine, as well as lots of anthologies. She's also a published humorist and poet, with a poetry collection nominated for the 2011 Bram Stoker Award. Her debut novel, MR. WICKER, came out from Raw Dog Screaming Press in September 2014. She lives in Los Angeles with ungrateful cats and a purse called Trog. She's also EXTREMELY unhappy that Scribd reset the read count on her documents. Add 5,000 to everything, and that's about the right number of reads. Jesus.see more
