Tell us a little about your story.
TUPPERWARE PARTY is basically Desperate Housewives meets Slasher, where a mundane, boring tupperware party in a suburban neighbourhood takes a turn for the worse.
Why did you want to write a slasher story and do you feel you brought something different to the table?
I’d never written a specific slasher story (I feel like my short story THE BANQUET doesn’t quite count) and I just wanted to see if I could do it. I like my stories gruesome and gory so it definitely fits the slasher theme. I don’t think I brought anything new and different to the genre, other than people might find it fun to read.
Do you have a favourite slasher story/movie?
I don’t read/watch a lot of slashers but Scream is definitely my favorite.
Why is it important to you to have a woman led press like Kandisha?
Because those kinds of press help elevate us women horror writers. They help shine a light on us when we’ve been pushed into the shadows of a male-dominated genre. They make us feel seen and valued.
What’s next for you?
I’m currently in the middle of writing the 4th book of my vampire horror series while co-writing a Splatter Horror Western story with my friend. I’m also preparing to release my short story collection AS THE NIGHT DEVOURS US in August or September.
Where can people find you?
I’m on Twitter as VillimeyS, they can find my anime-styled art on Instagram @fangs.and.light I have a Booktube channel called Fanged Pipsqueak Reads where I review indie horror and manga and I’m also being silly on Tiktok @villimeymist
