It’s a very special Halloween edition of Femme on Creatives with Dr. Fox Henry Frazier (poet, essayist and owner of the indie publisher, Agape Editions). Fox and Alyson talk about the appeal and power of horror stories and Fox reads from her vampire novel in progress, A Terrible Beauty is Born (inspired by a line from William Butler Yeats’s poem Easter, 1916). She talks about her motivation for writing this book and the story behind it and it’s truly compelling. Come engage with the beautifully spooky right now with Alyson and Fox, you won’t regret it.
