I write socially conscious thrillers and horror. Stories that entertain while also touching upon issues of racism, sexism, homophobia and "otherness." Stories that explore the humanity in horror and the horror in humanity.
Much of my interest in these themes comes from the fact that I am a psychologist. I’ve conducted hundreds of research studies on prejudice and stereotypes and my work has been featured in The New York Times, Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan, Esquire, and Oprah Radio. As a professor, I loved to share my knowledge of psychological science with others in a fun and engaging way. Now I continue this same work through my fiction, freelance writing, and my blog "The Writer's Laboratory."
