Shannon Lawrence is enjoying another Sweet Success with the publication of her short story, “The Black Undeath” in Once Upon A Scream, (adult horror/fairy tale, ISBN13: 978-1530529513, 280 pages), by HorrorAddicts.com on April 23, 2016. It is available at Amazon and Createspace:
One Upon a Scream is an anthology filled with everything that goes bump day or night. “There was a tradition of telling tales with elements of the fantastic along with the frightful. Adults and children alike took heed not to go into the deep, dark woods, treat a stranger poorly, or make a deal with someone- or something-without regard for the consequences. Be careful of what you wish for; you just might get it. From wish-granting trolls, to plague curses, and evil enchantresses, these tales will have you hiding under the covers in hopes they don't find you. So lock your doors, shutter your windows, and get ready to SCREAM.”
“The Black Undeath” is a retelling of Rumpelstiltskin. An illness, combining the bubonic plague and leprosy, has struck the royal family, infecting their infant son. Can the mysterious little man really help, or does he have ulterior motives?
Shannon is a fan of all things fantastical and frightening, she writes primarily horror and fantasy. Her stories can be found in anthologies and magazines, including Under the Bed, Devolution Z, and The Deep Dark Woods. When she's not writing, she's hiking through the wilds of Colorado and photographing her magnificent surroundings, where, coincidentally, there's always a place to hide a body or birth a monster.
