Full Body Chills

Being a huge fan of the Crime Junkie podcast, I was so excited about the opportunity of having a couple of my short stories produced for their Full Body Chills segment. “Lucky” is a story about a recent college grad who goes on a date with danger. Trigger warning: trapped places. “The Story of Vera Valentine” is about a girl in boarding school and her unusual roommate. Trigger warning: creepy dolls.
