March Roundup

Hey everybody, how is your 2021 going so far?

Here’s quick update on upcoming screenings for Things We Dig:

Unfortunately, our Denmark Premiere will be delayed again due to the pandemic. Last I heard, Night Terrors Film Festival still plans to have their event, but the April dates are out. I’ll post new screening info as soon as it is available.

Some great news, though!

I am so very happy to announce that ‘Things We Dig’ has been selected to screen at the Austin After Dark Film Festival! This will be a drive-in event taking place May 14-16th! Tickets are not on sale yet, but they will update their webpage soon. You can also check them out on FB for the line-up.

Who’s ready for a roadtrip? We can’t wait!!! Congratulations again, cast and crew! #teamdiggers


A few weeks ago, I was interviewed by Emilie Black of Cinema Crazed in honor of ‘Women in Horror Month‘. Thank you for giving me this opportunity to chat about my passions!

That’s all for today! More exciting news soon re: ‘The Test‘.

Stay healthy, stay sane!

And now, this!

So, a few weeks ago, I wrote briefly about awards and my feelings about them….

Well, it is my absolute pleasure to update you all with:

*insert drum-roll here*

Congrats to #TeamDiggers! So proud of my cast and crew!

Thank you Sick Chick Flicks Film Festival! These are the moments us filmmakers work blood, sweat and tears for!

Here’s the list of the other winners in their categories:

Congratulations to all!

Awards and nominations…oh myyy!

No, I’m not talking about the Golden Globes or Academy Awards…

Writing noms, acting awards.. pshaw… I never really cared about any of it before, but now that I’ve been nominated here and there, I’m suddenly very interested, lol!

I’m absolutely thrilled to announce that a short screenplay I wrote, “Parcopresis“, made it into the 2021 Killer Shorts Horror Short Screenplay Competition! It is in the top 15% out of 952 submissions! Still pinching myself and yet, I’m daring to cross my fingers for the semi-finals in March.

Congratulations to all the other quarter-finalists and thank you Killer Shorts Horror Short Screenplay Competition and your impressive (and a little intimidating) panel of judges!

To see the list of all the quarterfinalists, check out Killer Short’s website here.


And then there were the Hollywood Blood Horror Festival announcements earlier in January!

Big congratulations to our littlest vamp Morgan Marlow for winning Best Child/Young Actress! So deserved! You SLAYED it! Literally!

And finally, I’m beyond honored and thrilled to share Best Acting Duo with my co-star Jenn Larson! Looks like our bloody red wine-soaked rehearsals and improv sessions paid off! Thank you Hollywood Blood Horror Festival for our “Things We Dig” awards!

Huzzah!!! πŸΎπŸ§›β€β™€οΈπŸŽ‰
