Celebrating the Third Year of Women in Horror
For those who didn't know, February is the time to celebrate Women in Horror http://www.womeninhorrormonth.com/ . So, every week I'll be posting a book or author pic. of some of our well known women horror writers. My third post for WiH is on Gemma Files, and here's an article for you to learn a little more about the author via wiki.
Gemma Files is a Canadian horror writer, journalist, and film critic. Her short story, "The Emperor's Old Bones", won the International Horror Guild Award for Best Short Story of 1999. Five of her short stories were adapted for the television series The Hunger.
Gemma Files graduated Ryerson Polytechnic University in 1991 with a degree in journalism; various freelance assignments eventually led to a continuing position with entertainment periodical eye Weekly (www.eye.net), where she gained local repute as an insightful commentator on the horror genre, independent films and Canadian cinema. She was listed by Cameron Bailey of NOW Magazine as one of the Top 10 Coolest People In Canadian Cinema for 1996. She has also written reviews for www.film.com and for the Canadian horror magazine Rue Morgue.
