Christa Carmen

Christa Carmen's debut collection, Something Borrowed, Something Blood-Soaked, was published in 2018 by Unnerving, and additional work has been featured in or is forthcoming from Nightmare Magazine, Vastarien: A Literary Journal, Wicked Run Press, Fireside Magazine, Year's Best Hardcore Horror, and the Bram Stoker-nominated Not All Monsters: A Strangehouse Anthology by Women of Horror and The Streaming of Hill House: Essays on the Haunting Netflix Adaption. Christa holds an MFA in Popular Fiction from Stonecoast, of the University of Southern Maine.

When she's not writing, she keeps chickens, uses a ouija board to ghost-hug her dear departed beagle, and reads books like Mary Who Wrote Frankenstein and The Gashlycrumb Tinies to her daughter. Most of her work comes from gazing upon the ghosts of the past or else into the dark corners of nature, those places where whorls of bark become owl eyes and deer step through tunnels of hanging leaves and creeping briers only to disappear.
