Hello. I’m a devotee of the horror genre in need of an outlet, a way of indulging my passion and putting it out into the world. My first blog, in which I created horror-themed desserts, was called Terrifying Treats. I received such a positive response that I thought it was time to move in a more general direction. I started the blog Imp of the Appalling (Iota) in 2014 as a way to chronicle my observations and encounters with the horror genre in my everyday life, through writing reviews of films I’ve seen and news of festivals I’ve attended.
My focus has shifted in recent years towards writing original fiction, and so I’ve made the decision to remove my mask and transform the blog into an author site, with my own name on the masthead. Although there will be some changes, the imp lives on, and you can still expect the reviews, festival reportage, and thoughtful genre analysis Iota was known for.
If you would like to leave feedback or just have a chat about horror, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment. You can also find me on Twitter @AlisonGarsha. I’d love to hear from you.
