Hi Everyone-- This week, I've invited my gal pal Jessica McHugh into the Madhouse to chat about her book, The Green Kangaroos . Now I've had this book on my shelf for years now, and I'm so excited that I've finally blocked out some time to get to work on it, and I gotta say, it was one hell of a ride.  It reminded me of a science fiction version of one of Ellen Hopkin's books, and as someone who is a fan of medical horror and books about addiction and psychological chaos, I enjoyed this one immensely. Now for those of you who don't know Jess, she  is an author of speculative fiction spanning the genre from horror and alternate history to young adult. A member of the Horror Writers Association and a 2013 Pulp Ark nominee, she has devoted herself to novels, short stories, poetry, and playwriting. Jessica has had fourteen books published in five years, including the bestselling Rabbits in the Garden, The Sky: The World and the gritty coming-of-age thriller,


Hi Everyone-- Today in the MADHOUSE, I'm chatting with Tiffany Scandal about her punk rock, feminist horror book, Shit Luck. I told myself this year that I was going to make a point to get to some of the books I've been staring at on my to-read list forever now, such as: Shit Luck by Tiffany Scandal, The Green Kangaroos by Jessica McHugh, Glue by Constance Ann Fitzgerald , and  Puppet Skin by Danger Slater . I'm happy to say that I've been making good progress on my goals, and this one in particular was an absolute blast to read. I laughed. I cringed. I gasped. The story always kept me guessing, and to me, was a mixture of Nightmare on Elm Street  meets Groundhog Day . So do enjoy our chat below, and be sure to check out Shit Luck along with the many other cool projects Tiffany has on deck. You won't be regret it, and much like the character you're about to meet, I'm sure you'll keep coming back for more. Trapped in a slasher movie, Stepha
