My guest today is Zrinka Jelic. Zrinka lives in Ontario, Canada. She’s a member of the Romance Writers of America and its Fantasy Futuristic & Paranormal chapter, as well as Savvy Authors. She writes contemporary fiction, which leans toward the paranormal and adds a pinch of history. Given Jelic's love for her native Croatia and the Adriatic Sea, her characters usually find themselves dealing with a fair amount of sunshine, but that's about the only break they get.
Zrinka’s pick for favorite woman in horror is Alexandra Sokoloff. She is an American novelist and screenwriter, and the author of the Thriller award-nominated Huntress/FBI series, following a haunted FBI agent on the hunt for a female serial killer (Huntress Moon, Blood Moon, Cold Moon, published by Thomas & Mercer in 2015). Her first novel, The Harrowing, was published by St. Martin's Press in 2006. Her second novel, The Price, was published by St. Martin's in 2007, her third, The Unseen, in 2009, her fourth, "Book of Shadows", in 2010. She is a Bram Stoker and Anthony award nominee and a Thriller award winner, and the co-author of the paranormal mystery romance series "The Keepers".
She also co-wrote the screenplay for the psychological thriller Cold Kisses, and two books on story structure, Story Structure and Writing Love, based on her Screenwriting, Tricks for Authors workshops and blog.
Her short story, The Edge of Seventeen, was the recipient of a 2009 International Thriller Writers Award.
