This is it! Tomorrow May 1st is the official release of the new SQ! It’s been an amazing and tiring last couple of months, but here we are. Last time you had a chance to meet the phenomenal artists of SQ, now allow me to introduce the writers.
Each writer and contributor is well established in their own right. With years of experience and fantastic insight, this crew brings more than a little unique flavor and voices all their own. So without further ado, the writing contributors!
(unashamedly lifted directly from imdb!) Five-year Studio veteran Shawn Anthony became Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Harvest Moon Motion Pictures & Television in October 2015. In this role, he oversees worldwide operations, including film, television and On-Demand production, marketing and distribution for one of the most up and coming, innovative and film friendly entertainment companies in the world. Anthony is a multiple award-winning director, writer, and cinematographer with experience in feature films, shorts, On-demand, and Television Programing.
(Stole this bio as well. Thanks Fangirl!) Jessica Dwyer started the Fangirling at a young age. Baptized in many a genre by a sister who had tons of Vampirellas sitting about as well as local Creature Feature every Friday night on PBS, Jessica didn’t stand a chance of turning out normal. This is something for which she is thankful for everyday of her life.
Growing up in Southern Illinois, Jessica’s love for all things weird and wonderful left her with a slight case of being the outsider, but she had ways of coping. Most of these entailed movies like Nightmare on Elm Street and The Lost Boys. She read Clive Baker while other read Sweet Valley High. Her path was set.
Jessica started up Fangirl Magazine to celebrate the female fans of the world and the things that they love. It’s not just the Fanboys out there, and the gals should have a chance to be heard.
Jeff is a long time horror fan whose first remembered encounter with the genre (after The Wizard of Oz) was watching the first broadcast of The Twilight Zone episode, “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge.” After losing his way in the 80’s, he then made the mistake of “growing up” in the 90’s and the 00’s. He eventually saw the error in his ways, and while he qualifies as an old fart, he now strives to be an “Old Boy.” And as Robert Bloch frequently said, “… I really have the heart of a small boy. I keep it in a jar on my desk.” Jeff lives smack dab in the middle of a corn field in central Iowa where his constant vigilance is your first line of defense against the Children of the Corn. He also writes reviews for Horrornews.net and Gruesome Magazine
Rebecca has a Masters in Film Studies from the University of Southampton. Addicted to horror in all its cultural forms for as long as she can remember, some of her favourite films include Demons, À l’intérieur, Non Ho Sonno, Nosferatu, The Shining, Spring, and Les Yeux Sans Visage. You can find her over at Den of Geek, Wicked Horror, Big Comic Page and That’s Not Current. She also co-hosts the international horror podcast: United Nations of Horror. When she’s not writing or talking about horror, she’s happiest out in the wilderness surrounded by animals and working on her plan for the zombie apocalypse.
Joseph Perry, a lifelong monster kid and horror fare fan, has been living and working in South Korea since 2008. He is a writer, editor, and teacher whose genre film, rock music, and professional wrestling articles have appeared in several publications and online. He’s happy to say that he has passed along the fright-film journalist genes to his son Cohen; the two have written several articles together about their annual experiences at the Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival in South Korea. Joseph is also an occasional co-host on the Horror News Radio family of podcasts, reporting on the various film festivals that he attends in Korea and Japan. You can find his blog at tastethemilkofchocula.blogspot.com, follow him on Twitter at @JosephWPerryJWP, or email him at email@example.com.
Cohen Perry is a high school teacher that uses film, music and culture as a means to help students understand our changing world. Following in his father’s footsteps, he got his start in freelance writing by covering the Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival in South Korea– eventually going on to publish articles on classic French horror and travel. You can read his contributions in publications such as Propeller Magazine and Videoscope.
Contributing Writer/Reviewer at Bloodbath and Beyond, Contributing Writer/Reviewer at Flickering Myth and Contributing Writer/Reviewer at Diabolique, busy busy busy! Not to mention a brilliant writer with an occasionally magnificent beard! (when it’s there)
Without the efforts of them, none of this would be possible! Thank you all so much!
