I created this blog in February 2012 in celebration of Women In Horror Month. I started this blog with the hopes of interviewing 29 Women In Horror during the 2012 Women In Horror Month. Enthusiasm and support reached a fever pitch, and before I knew it, I had 53 interviews ready to go!
I had the privilege of being WiHM founder Hannah Neurotica’s assistant for the month and it was one of the most fun things I’ve ever done as a writer and horror fanatic.
Long before my participation in Women In Horror Month, a deep affinity for the ladies of horror grew within me. From Elsa Lanchester as the Bride Of Frankenstein to Elvira to Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode and every amazing woman in between, I love the strong characters that are finally becoming more common in our beloved genre.
With so many amazing ladies offering their time and insight to this blog and the movement deserving year-round recognition, I will continue to post interviews, essays and artwork for as long as Women In Horror continue to kick ass!
In other words, I won’t be going anywhere anytime soon.
The name, ‘Cup Of Stars’ comes from Shirley Jackson’s amazing novel The Haunting Of Hill House, and is an encouragement to any and all creative women who refuse to give in just because there are people out there who may not understand or appreciate what they are contributing to the art world.
I thank you for stopping by, wholeheartedly appreciate feedback and hope you enjoy the blog!
