DE Bios: P.D. Cacek

One of P.D. Cacek's earliest memories is standing before a tiny black-and-white television on Halloween night and almost choking to death on a Tootsie-Roll pop when Boris Karloff, as the Frankenstein monster, suddenly loomed into view. This, undoubtedly, was the pivotal point that forever changed how she viewed the world. A successful writer of horror and dark fantasy, "Trish" (as she's known to her friends) has had stories published in both commercial and small press as well as the anthologies: Grails: The Visitations of the Night, Deathport, Return To The Twilight Zone, Newer York, 100 Wicked Little Witches, Hotter Blood, Peter S. Beagle's The Immortal Unicorn, David Copperfield's Tales Of The Impossible, Desire Burn, Blood Muse, Gothic Ghosts, and Whitley Strieber's Aliens (due in Spring). An Active Member of both SFWA and HWA, Trish won the Bram Stoker Award for Superior Achievement in the Short Story category, 1996, for Metalica (Hotter Blood -Fear the Fever). Her first collection of short fiction, Leavings, from StarsEnd Creations, is currently in bookstores.
