C.C. Winchester believed that like many writers before her, her horror loving journey began with the works of Stephen King. After reading Salem’s Lot as a teenager, she found it necessary to sleep with the light on for a week and she loved it! But upon reading said books, she was informed by her mother that around the age of five, she started sneaking into the living room late at night to watch zombie movies and such with her parents. Her mother said that though her infiltration was discovered and she was promptly removed from said living room, that she would return in what she thought was stealth mode, only to be removed again. She currently resides in Dallas, Texas with her daughter who also writes stories. Their home is full of four-legged loves; three dogs and four cats (all rescues), who love to help them write!
