Uncomfortably Dark serves as a conduit to inspire my readers, to share new horror, and to keep them informed of my latest work, updates, and news. Join me and find out what makes me cringe in this dark and uncomfortable world. So, find a dark corner, pull up a chair and light your candle.  Let's get uncomfortable.
