Welcome to The Gillicrist Pen, a place where writing, INFJ-ness, and special needs all come together. I hope you find it a soothing source of comfort and entertainment.

And speaking of entertainment, I’m delighted to announce the arrival of a super-creepy anthology, just in time for Halloween!

Last year, REUTS Publications held a month-long contest with weekly challenges for submitting twisted, gruesome versions of fairy tale classics. The winners had their stories pulled together, illustrated, and now—published! I’m happy to report that my short story, Cry of the Windwalker, is among the chosen few. Seeing my first creation in print…and beautifully illustrated by a talented artist…has truly been one of the highlights of my life!

So if you’re looking for a spine-tingling thriller, check out Fairly Twisted Tales for a Horribly Ever After…if you dare. ;)

Now available on Amazon!


When it comes to fairy tales, there are plenty of things that go bump in the night. Things so morbid and grotesque, so sinister and diabolical, they haunt your imagination; warnings from generations past that still manage to terrify.

In 2013, authors came together for the annual Project REUTSway writing competition, penning their own interpretive twists on stories we’re all familiar with. Seventeen were chosen, bringing twenty-five new versions to life. From The Brother’s Grimm, to Hans Christian Andersen and beyond, these tales are not the ones you grew up with. They are, however, Fairly Twisted Tales for a Horribly Ever After. Dare to find out what happens when “once upon a time” ends in the stuff of nightmares?
