Why I write…

Why I write...

Here, within the dark walls of my blog, you will find discussions of sexuality, gender politics, pictures of pretty goths, book and film reviews and samples of my writing. To be honest it tends to cover anything that interests me.

Why do I write?

I write to understand. Each character I create faces a problem I need to solve and each story asks a question I wish to answer.

Writing horror is like slow-dancing with your greatest fears – exhilarating and terrifying. My stories contain themes of identity, sexuality, sexual violence, misogyny, motherhood and last but not least self-acceptance through adversity. They represent a woman’s hidden life in microcosm. They entertain (if being terrified and horrified is your idea of entertainment) and they stimulate sexually and intellectually.

My novels are character-driven horror, sometimes chaotic or surreal, often hectic and fast-paced, always incredibly violent and deliciously sexy. I write stories for the disturbed to remind them they do not suffer alone.

Quotes about Carmilla’s work –

“Carmilla Voiez is more of a singer than a writer. She tells her compelling story in a hypnotic, distinctive voice that brings her eerie world vividly to life.” Graham Masterton

‘Carmilla Voiez makes Clive Barker look like Stephanie Meyer.’ Jef Withonef, Houston Press

One thought on “Why I write…

  1. I don’t know if I write for any other reason than it’s an itch I need to scratch, that can’t be ignored. I suppose it helps me understand things, but even then I could find other ways to express that. Infection with printers ink at an early age, I suppose.
