My name is Zena, and I'm a lifelong horror fan, writer, and filmmaker.

My writing has been featured on Bloody-Disgusting, Florida Geek Scene, Black Girl Nerds, HorrorHound (Print), iHorror, Wicked Horror, and Dread Central.

I previously ran a monthly column at Dread Central, Zena's Period Blood, which focused on under-appreciated and hidden horror films. I also ran another monthly column at Wicked Horror, Blood on my Sofa, that revealed my movie recommendations.

In addition to my written work, I'm a filmmaker. You can watch some of my short films on Vimeo. was created in 2011. It's an outlet where I can freely and creatively express my love for the horror genre.
