Frightmare in the Falls October 27 to 29, 2023


I'm thrilled to be returning to Frightmare in the Falls again this year with the Great Lakes Horror Company at Booth 114!

I'll be running a free writing workshop. At this workshop, I'll lead you through various exercises so that by the end of the session, you'll have the skeleton of a short story. It's up to you later on in your laboratory to clothe those bones with flesh and give your creature life!

The workshop is free and in room 207. You don't have to sign up in advance, just show up.
You don't have to be a writer. You don't have to have any ideas before you come in. 
You don't have to share with the class, we won't have time to share. 
Just bring a pen and paper or your laptop or phone, however, you like to write. 
I've given this workshop a few times over the past year and have listened to the feedback on how to improve it. 

At the booth, you can find the brand new hot off the press from the Great Lakes Horror Company, Weird Tales of Terror. This is a collection of my early work, a few short stories, and a very early novel. 
I love this new edition. 
The cover photo is by Mothmeister. They also provided the artwork for Dearly Departed, the collection I did with Andrew Robertson last year. There will be a few copies of that one as well at the booth.

I'll also be reading tarot at the booth at the still-low price of $20. 
First come, first serve, although feel free to book a time if you like!

Over the past few months, I've started a Poshmark Closet and have been selling new and vintage clothes, toys, and other goodies on there. I'll have some jewelry at the booth from the store. 

I've also started a new YouTube channel GothmothersClosetResell. Right now, it's about showing you what's in the closet as I list them since most items are black and hard to see in a photo or two. 

I'm also working on a novel in tiny little slices, Serial Vlogger. You can read it for free over at Substack!

 In addition to the above events, I will be reading tarot at Ground Control on October 7 for their goth market in the afternoon. The Great Lakes Horror Company will be there as well selling books, and very cool horror items. There will be many other vendors to break in this brand new home for goths. 

That night will be the reunion for Sanctuary Vampire Club and I will be dancing the night away at that one!

Ground Control, 1279 Queen Street West, Toronto

Also, over on Substack, I've been posting a brand new original horror novel, Serial Vlogger: A Novel in Tiny Slices! Currently, it's free! Slice number three was posted on Sunday.

I've also begun a new adventure, a Poshmark store with a matching YouTube channel!

I've also posted a new video on my Sephera's World Channel!

Have a great day!

Fan Expo Final Schedule 2023


Fan Expo Canada in Toronto, Ontario is coming up super fast!

I'm super excited to be on some programming!

On Thursday night at 7:30, there are three of us from the Horror Writers Association Ontario Chapter reading from our work. We each get ten minutes. I'm not sure when I go on, so come early and enjoy!

On Friday afternoon at 4:30, I'm super excited for a panel about horror TV shows. 


4:30 pm to 5:15 pm in THEATRE #6: GENERAL PROGRAMMING [South Building - Level 700, Room 711] Yellow Jackets, American Horror Story, Dahmer, Ratched, The Last of Us, Midnight Mass, and so many more keep us tuning in every week or just plain binge-watching. What is it about watching regular people slowly unraveling (or not!) as they are plunged into a horrific universe that keeps us riveted? What horror in our own lives are we keeping at bay by watching cannibalism, vampires, flesh-eaters, and more? Join us for a discussion about your favourite horror TV series and why we can't get enough! Be warned: There might be spoilers and there's nothing scarier than spoilers!

Today, we were able to confirm Lizz de Savoye of Planet Lizzdom will be joining the panel. We are still waiting confirmation for the fourth panelist. 

On Saturday at 5, we'll be running a writer's workshop. Bring pen and paper or laptop or even your phone to make notes during the exercises. The goal is to have the skeleton of a short story by the end of 45 minutes as we lead you through exercises. Don't worry, you don't have to share with the class, there isn't time. You don't have to sign up in advance and come on in even if you're running late. 
The story you work on doesn't have to be a horror story, it can be anything you want. After all, you're the only one looking at it! You do not need to have an idea for a story to do the class. We are covering the basic elements of crafting a scary short story so you can figure it out as you go along or even when you get home!

I'm planning to wander around and look at exhibits as well as this year I don't have a booth. If you see me, say hi!

I've started a Poshmark Closet as I'm at the downsizing part of my life. I have tons of items that just sit in boxes for various reasons and it's time to move them along. I'm sure most of you know how that goes!

I also source modern, interesting items at various places that I think might be of interest to some. 

Some items, whether mine or from a store, are brand new, never worn/opened, and some even have tags!

My Sephera666/Gothmother's Closet might be considered an everything store in one respect, yet in another, it has niches, as listed on the poster. 

The only thing I find difficult about Poshmark Canada is that there's no way to have separate closets for separate items. If there were categories in our actual closets of toys, clothes, and books, then that would be easier for both selling and browsing. But it isn't that, it's all about keywords. So I'm trying my best to use the keywords appropriately. 

My closet is chock full of clothes and accessories that are great for fall, Back to School, Solstice, and Halloween. There are nice pieces for cosplay, fetish play, costume parties, masquerades, goth parties, witch festivals, pagan rituals, and more. 

I'm still new at this but am trying to list new items every day. So follow me on at sephera666 

If you're new to Poshmark and buy something from any closet on the platform, you can use the code sephera666 to receive 15% off your order. 

Naughty French Maid, brand new, never worn

Ghosts on leggings!

Black dress with white cats!

Barbiecore! You'll likely need a pink skater skirt for some party or event this fall!

Cute flowered half top with buttons and a tie at the waist. Long sleeves.

Little white mini shorts work well for any costume party! The buttons are fun!

You could wear the yellow and black flowered shirt, the white hot pants and these tan leather zip-up boots then top it all off with a cowboy hat for a Western or Country look!

On my Sephera666 closet, you can bundle as many items as you like for bigger discounts. 
Also, make me an offer if you want at any time. I'm always open to offers. 

This brand-new little top is so cute. I had to buy it a few days ago so that someone can wear it. I'll never be that small. The photos don't capture the true essence of the soft, shiny material. It's like fresh mocha frosting on a cake. 

Another Barbiecore look. That pink Barbie color will be hard to find when you're looking for a Halloween costume! Great trousers for a fifties look, a country look, or just wear them because you like them!

Photos don't do justice to this nifty multilayered electrifying top. 

You can find all these pieces and dozens more over at Sephera666 at

Fan Expo Appearances


It's been a while. A lot of life changes and this and thats to deal with these days.

However, I'm super excited to be doing a few appearances at Fan Expo in a couple of weeks!

As part of the Horror Writers Association Ontario Chapter, I'll be doing a reading on Thursday night from one of my works. I've been told it can be a mature audience so I'll see what I pick. 

I might be on a panel with the HWA Ontario Chapter about ghost hunting, but I'm not sure yet. 

There will be a panel From Yellowjackets to Straightjackets: Why Do We Love Horror TV? which will be a conversation with Andrew Robertson and two other panelists about our favourite horror TV shows, and maybe even some tips and tricks about how to write for such shows as well as enjoying them. 

I'm also running a FREE Writing Workshop. I ran this course at Stokercon and it went over well. At Fan Expo, I only have 45 minutes to run the workshop, but it's interactive and you will leave the workshop with the beginning sketches of a new story or at least more of an idea about the elements of a horror short story and how to craft one. 

So for the Writing Workshop, bring pen and paper or your laptop or whatever you like to use to take notes and sketch out a story. We will be writing in class though likely there will not be time to share our work with each other this time, depending on how many students attend. 

As far as I know, I will NOT have a booth at Fan Expo this year. I understand that the HWA Ontario Chapter did not book a booth this year, either. So, you'll see me at Fan Expo at these appearances and also wandering around looking for good deals.

Keep watching my social media or the official Fan Expo Schedule Page to learn when these panels and presentations will occur. I'll update as I learn more.
