We all need a mortality check from time to time to get our stories out there.

Today’s featured international bestselling author is a New England-to-SoCal transplant, and the co-founder of the Horror Writers Association (HWA) San Diego chapter, KC Grifant. KC and I had a chat about her book, “Melinda West: Monster Gunslinger”, gaining confidence as a writer, and more!


Key Things You’ll Learn:

What inspired her to make horror her genre of choice as a writer

Her advice for aspiring writers and how she found the courage to write

How she balances work, life, and writing

Her plans for upcoming books
