From an interview with Chelsea, one half of the dynamic duo, by Gwendolyn Kiste (www.gwendolynkiste.com/Blog/in-this-goth-we-trust-interview-with-chelsea-goodwin/)
“I wanted to be a writer ever since I read Nancy Drew. I love pulp formulas and love to use them in my own work like Pine Hell(available on Amazon Kindle) by spoofing, queering and subverting them.
My favourite authors include some mainstream authors like Patricia Cornwell and Dan Brown, but aside from that, the books I revisit the most are Frankensteinby Mary Shelly, Bram Stoker’s Dracula, The Picture of Dorian Gray, anybody from the old Alfred Hitchcock anthologies, Anne Rice, Stephen King, Joyce Carol Oates, anybody that’s been anthologised by Ellen Datlow, and anything that ever appeared in Weird Tales magazine. Neil Gaiman is of course God as any follower of the Lucifer tv series knows.”
