Welcome Shannon Lawrence and her latest publication.
Take it away Shannon!
To celebrate the release of my new holiday horror collection, I put together a family-friendly list of holiday horror films everyone can enjoy!
Thanksgiving: Addams Family Values
While not a horror film, it’s all about a dark, macabre, and yet loving family. As someone who has Native American heritage, this film is a must-watch every single Thanksgiving, all due to the Thanksgiving play they put on at summer camp. Hilarity ensues.
I saw this in the theater when it came out, and it scared the bajeebers out of me, but it has since become a favorite. In my defense, I was quite young when it released. The gremlins delight in spreading mayhem through a small town on Christmas, and it’s an equal delight to watch them.
New Year’s: Ghostbusters 2
There’s no movie quite like this one for a rousing New Year’s sing-along. All in the name of saving the city from a giant marshmallow monster. Along the way, enjoy the foibles of the nerdy heroes who get into their own shenanigans.
Groundhog Day: Happy Death Day
Okay, this one’s not actually set on Groundhog Day, if I’m remembering right, but since it’s a horror version of the Murray flick, I figured I’d use artistic license and include it. This one’s a horror flick with a sense of humor. The main character keeps getting killed and coming back to the same day. In order to stop the cycle, she has to figure out who’s killing her.
Valentine’s Day: My Boyfriend’s Back
A slapstick zombie flick. What do you do when you die full of unrequited love? Why, you come back, of course!
While my book is not one I’d consider family friendly, I hope you can enjoy these flicks with the family, then maybe retire for some reading time on your own. The stories are in loose order of the holiday they represent, so they can be read all at once or on the related holiday.
Release day is November 20. The Kindle version is available for Amazon Kindle. It will also be widely available from online retailers.
Family time can lead to murder and mayhem, especially during the holidays. A turkey with a tale to tell, elves under attack, sorority sisters putting on a killer party, a woman’s desperation to save her family, and a stranger ringing in the New Year. These and other tales of woe await you beneath the mistletoe.
Be careful who you offer a kiss. It may be your last.

BIO: A fan of all things fantastical and frightening, Shannon Lawrence writes in her dungeon when her minions allow, often accompanied by her familiars. She writes primarily horror and fantasy. Her stories can be found in several anthologies and magazines, and her collections, Blue Sludge Blues & Other Abominations and Bruised Souls & Other Torments, are available in stores. You can also find her as a co-host of the podcast “Mysteries, Monsters, & Mayhem.” When she’s not writing, she’s hiking through the wilds of Colorado and photographing her magnificent surroundings. Though she often misses the Oregon coast, the majestic and rugged Rockies are a sight she could never part with. Besides, in Colorado there’s always a place to hide a body or birth a monster. What more could she ask for?
