“…Rose’s film is a dark and unsettling take on the period film, with a finale that’s bound to etch itself into the mind of FrightFest goers this weekend…”


I like to draw upon my own experiences when I write my stories. I transport myself back to fearful nights spent beneath the blankets and lonely afternoons doing Ouija boards under a hot sun. I write about things that make me curious and I investigate fear. I’m influenced by intimate prose, cinema and music, and subtle human stories of the subconscious. I also love a good ghost story or a wacky horror that takes me by surprise.
