Praise for Bodies Full of Burning

“If “women’s magic is in our blood,” Bodies Full of Burning encapsulates that power and puts it on display, in all of its many forms, for the world to see”


— Rebecca Rowland, best-selling editor of six horror anthologies and the author of The Horrors Hiding in Plain SightPieces, and The View Master.

There is something in this book for everyone who enjoys a little bit of the macabre—it’s an outright smasher, but equally importantly (even horror fans have morals, right?), it’s brilliant to see women’s health being discussed (albeit fictionally-I hope!) and celebrated artistically like this.”
— S.J. Townend, award winning short story writer and author of the collection Sick Girl Screams.
