Issue Three Contributor Biographies
Natalie L. Sin
Natalie L. Sin is a horror writer and avid coffee drinker, not necessarily in that order. Sin has appeared in “Necrotic Tissue”, Strange, Weird, and Wonderful, “The Monsters Next Door”, “Macabre Cadaver”, and “Tales from the Moonlit Path”. Her dream is to have one of her stories inspire a Hong Kong movie. In the meantime, Sin continues to honor the source of her inspiration by making awful things happen there.
