Wendy Howard tackles Beverley Allitt: Women in Horror

I really enjoy Wendy Howard’s writing. As a part of February’s Women In Horror Month, I had the privilege of meeting her in virtual space and writing an article about torture.

Maybe I’m biased towards Wendy because she shares a name with one of my favorite characters of mine (Wendy Willow). Nah. She’s just a compelling writer.

This was one post that Wendy wrote for WiHM. She discusses a very real serial killer who had Munchausen Syndrome AND Munchausen-By-Proxy Syndrome. These are both rare conditions, and to have them together was, as I said in the comments, “like finding a unicorn. A horrible, flesh-eating unicorn, but still.”

In my series The Psych Writer, I will be tackling both Munchausen and MBP. I think it would make for some interesting characters if handled correctly, and I like to pick things apart. As I said, Munchausen Syndrome and MBP are rare, but they’re fun to explore (as long as you’re not the one suffering from it).

Enjoy Wendy’s article and sleep tight.
