Horror author Latashia Figueroa was kind enough to invite me to guest post on her blog about the movies I can’t forget. I’m posting it here with her very fun intro so you will get to know her and enjoy her blog.

I was born in a great decade. I’m old enough to remember what a rotary phone looks like and yet I’m quite skilled in using my smart phone ( so i’m not old). I remember when MTV aired Michael Jackson’s Thriller video. That was awesome. I also remember my parents telling me to “go play outside”, and I  liked it.  Parents weren’t over policed back then. They allowed their children to enjoy the occasional horrible meal (McDonald’s was my treat on Friday’s); no one criticized that the beef wasn’t organic or the chicken nuggets was deep fried in fat. Although, I do worry about those things now. And a lot of  us were introduced to horror films at a young age.  And I am grateful. These movies and T.V. shows terrified and excited me and I wanted more. I’m not alone. But what is it about these films that…

    When I was in High School, my friends and I had a blast with horror flicks. The Shining, Friday the 13th come to mind. After that I strayed away from the genre, coming back to it with my teens. Teens seem to have a special stomach for horror 😀

    I know! It’s quite interesting how that works. I also find that the older I get the less tolerance I have for watching violent scenes. If someone is about to get their hand slammed in a car door I look away. Yes, my screen watching is indeed like my reading habits.

    Thanks for commenting Angie…

    I got pulled into your blog by a little social media cross pollination; that is, I was browsing my about.me views and found myself here. It’s interesting how one can get lost in the labyrinth of social media after really just setting out to clean one’s email.

    Lucky me, you have a great blog with wonderfully interactive posts that encourage writers to build community. I’m proud of you, like minded, and will follow.

    P.S.: Does Walking Dead count as horror, because I’m hopelessly invested in the characters and their outcome and binge watch every season?

      Kennedy you made my day. I had a conversation with author Melissa Yi a few weeks ago and she asked me why I had my blog. The answer is exactly what you mentioned, to build community. It’s the point of view and conversation that make it so enjoyable. And certainly the cross-pollination (delightful!) that you mention. I have met online some interesting, articulate, creative and fun people.

      The Walking Dead is the best! I save-up on the episodes so I can binge watch. It’s a blended dystopian and horror for me. I like when genre’s mix. I’m reading a SciFi book called Dying for a Living that is a murder mystery on a conspiracy scale (Kory Shrum) Do you have favourite authors?

      Thank you so much for following and I look forward to hearing from you.
