Synopsis for Deadly Women

Serial killers, psychopaths, brutality and violence, horror and terror, cunning, wit, beauty and charm—what am I describing? Deadly women, of course. Included in this series is Pillow Talk, nominated for Spinetingler’s Best Short Story on the Web award. Pick your Poison:

Pillow Talk: If sexy Henrietta asks you if you are afraid of the dark, it’s already too late. 

One, two, three…

Nails and teeth go beneath.

Hair and gums, unbecomes.
Legs and fingers, let them linger.

Heads and tails flip for sells.

What does this mean? Ask Rhiannon, she’ll be happy to show you.

Dead Sunset Red: At Faraday Psychiatric Hospital, Cecilia stares at herself in the bathroom mirror. She knows today is the anniversary of something very dreadful she has done, but she can’t remember what or why. When she applies her favorite lip gloss, Dead Sunset Red, it triggers a floodgate of horrific memories beyond comprehension.

My Review for Deadly Women

I have to say that out of the three stories, Mantra is my favorite. It had a twist at the end that I did not see coming. But, they were all very creepy scary. The first one, I have to admit, had me laughing. I don’t know why. Maybe I’m just twisted that way. Dead Sunset Red, it was good, but like I said Mantra was my favorite. If you like scary creepy short stories, Deadly Women is the choice for you!
