DAYS OF THE DEAD: Las Vegas has crawled its bloody entrails back in its tomb for now…
I was beyond honored to be a part of the thrills, chills, and celeb appearances this year. Such a blast to be able to book and moderate two panels of successful writer voices as championed by the organization: HORROR WRITERS ASSOCIATION Las Vegas chapter, of which I co-chair with the lovely and talented Miss Murder MERCEDES M. YARDLEY. On Friday we had Mercedes along with KATIE SALIDAS & MARK SAVAGE on the panel, moderated by myself. It was fun and we did the best we could picking up the slack when one of the team fell out as a panelist. That being said, the real gem was Sunday when we had a special drop-in; my old friend CLIVE BARKER. Sadly Mercedes wasn’t able to attend that day, and told me she literally cried when she heard she missed sharing that hour and a half with him talking about the craft.
In the past, I’ve been honored to work with him on a book (ITS ALIVE: BRINGING YOUR NIGHTMARES TO LIFE from CRYSTAL LAKE PRESS seen in the pic angle here alongside my book SOUL TRAITOR from SPOOKYNINJAKITTY) and over the years I’ve been lucky enough to have spend hours communicating and visiting at his home. He is an artist and a gentleman. Here’s some pics and video from the exchange of ideas we had on that special day.
I will always admire and appreciate my hero, my friend, CLIVE BARKER.
Both THEN & NOW and as long as we are honored with him on this mortal coil.
Don’t miss an opportunity to attend DAYS OF THE DEAD when it comes near you!!
Huge THANK YOU to BROOKLYN EWING for being so easy and accommodating with us.
