Meet Danielle McCrory

Danielle McCrory was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona. She attended school in Tucson and Flagstaff, and has degrees in Graphic Design and Physical Therapy. She currently lives in Tucson with her husband, Ryan McCrory, and their two cats, Brodi and Jaxson. Danielle loves horror movies, animals, rainy days, and Halloween. In addition to her love for all things scary, she is also an avid reader and lover of books. Danielle’s love for reading was passed along by her father, who taught Danielle how to read with Goosebumps books, of which she had many. Danielle then went on to read Fear Street novels, before turning to Stephen King, Michael Crichton, and Michael Connolly. Danielle’s favorite author is Stephen King. While Danielle often entertained the idea of becoming a writer, she didn’t give the dream much serious thought until her father passed away from cancer in 2020. She turned to writing as a way to cope with her loss, and ended up writing a full length novel about a young girl who also lost her father. This novel, Wasp Canyon, follows a grieving girl as she makes a horrific discovery on a hiking trail and finds herself battling demons much darker—and much more dangerous—than her grief alone. Danielle loves writing because she believes there are still so many scary stories left untold, and she is thrilled to get the opportunity to tell some of these stories. She is currently working on her next two novels, which she plans to release next year. Danielle’s love for writing continues to grow, and she is always looking for more books to add to her library. “There’s nothing like curling up with a hot cup of coffee, a cozy blanket, and the most gruesome horror novel you can find.” -Danielle McCrory

Welcome to the dystopian future of mass entertainment in 2084, where the Jerry Springer Show is the inspiration for a counselling show with a difference: Counselor and Client competing to win, against each other. Katy was fine with crocheting and needlepoint, but her past involved stitching of human parts.

If she wins, she gets her dream aquarium bathtub. If she loses, ‘the forfeit is designed for maximum personal humiliation’. Enter Captain Stanislav Boglosovic from stage-left, a thin elderly former ‘translator’ wanted for war crimes, struggling in retirement in Brazil. If he wins, he gets his pension; If he loses, he calculates Prison, but he’s never lost; whatever it takes to win, there are no limits. But who will win? And is the prize worth the effort for one, and the forfeit for the other? Let the tournament commence, and all our hopes and fears begin.
