HALEY NEWLIN grew up watching Vincent Price movies and hanging on every grim tale Lemony Snicket spun. It was no surprise when Newlin began writing her own dark fiction. In 2016, her gothic short story “The Tactics of a Cryptic Arbitrator," was a finalist in the Penmen Review fall fiction contest.  She has published two novels, Not Another Sarah Halls, and Take Your Turn, Teddy, and is working on her third, The Nowhere Man. Her short story "The Butcher on Blue Jay Way," is featured in Kandisha Press' SLASH-HER anthology.. This collection has received praise from Stephen Graham Jones and Barbara Crampton. 

Newlin is also a book reviewer for Cemetery Dance Magazine

“In Not Another Sarah Halls I tried to be intentional in expressing what I have come to call the beauty of horror; the genre’s demand of self-reflection and unqiue ability to humble us in our own humanity. Horror makes readers ask what would my manifested fear look like? But most importantly, in inciting self-reflection, it helps readers determine not only what their fears are, but gives them the courage to look their fear in the face and say, ‘This is how I beat you.’"
