Lizzie Violet is a writer, horror aficionado, and lover of all things Zombie. She was that creepy little girl you caught reading Poe in cemeteries & continues to do so as an adult.
Her shelves are filled with tales of horror, death & creepy little dolls. Those who visit her lair, beware, as there are horrific surprises lurking, waiting, anticipating.
Don’t let her sunny smile and quiet demeanor fool you. Those are the creatures you should truly be watching out for.
