Hi! Thanks for stopping by my website. You’re probably here because you found me or my work through writerly venues, but I’m also a wife, cat momma, Dr. Pepper addict, and self-professed craftologist. At social gatherings, I’m the one awkwardly pretending not to be awkward.
As far as the writing goes, I specialize in horror, literary fiction, gothic, poetry, picture books, and some dark fantasy. I have short stories and poetry appearing or forthcoming in over two dozen venues, including The Spirit of Poe, Buzzy Mag, Underneath the Juniper Tree, the British Fantasy Society journal Dark Horizons, and the National Federation of State Poetry Societies’ prize anthology Encore. I won 2nd place in the 2011 Edwin M. Eakin Memorial Book Publication Award sponsored by the Poetry Society of Texas. I’m represented by Michelle Johnson of Inklings Literary.
I’m also very involved in the writing community. I’m the president of the North Branch Writers’ Critique Group, vice president of the Denton Poets’ Assembly, webmaster for the Poetry Society of Texas, member of the National Federation of State Poetry Societies, and affiliate member of the Horror Writers Association. Either I love giving back, or need to learn how to say no; you decide. And I’m absolutely tickled pink to be the new bimonthly Twitter columnist at Writer Unboxed – listed in Writer’s Digest‘s “101 Best Websites” for the past six years.
I live in Texas with my sweet husband, Kyle, and two diabolical cats: Buttons and Snaps. I am hyperactively organized and willing to share that neurosis with other writers at The Organized Writer. While you’re here, you can also find my available works, check out my current projects, and browse pictures of writers’ offices at The Decorative Writer. I post new blogs once a week, and I love to read your comments! You can also usually find me flitting around the Twit-o-sphere @AnnieNeugebauer, and generally hanging out anywhere books live.
