Born and raised in the Midwest, Janet Loftis fled to sunny California to escape the cold, dark winters, only to now explore the colder and darker sides of human nature in her horror and fantasy fiction.
With a BA in Anthropology and Archaeology, and a MA combining Cultural Anthropology with Creative Writing, Janet's stories are inspired by the mythos of cultures around the world. From science-fiction to fantasy to horror, and from short stories to screenplays, Janet has seen her fiction published in a variety of online and print magazines, and placed in the finals and semi-finals of screenplay competitions.
Next on Janet's agenda are more horror shorts, a horror screenplay, and the marketing of a family-friendly screenplay.
The three stories published here are taken from Skin and Bones, a collection of eleven short stories and a novelette currently available from XC These dark-tinged, anthropology-inspired tales will intrigue fans of horror, dark fantasy, magical realism, and science fiction.
