Greetings and Salutations!
You’ve reached the new online home of author and all ’round general force of nature Jhada Rogue Addams.
I spend the lion’s share of my time running around and having sordid little spiritual adventures out in nature and working with paranormal investigators as a medium – as well as writing fiction and working a full time job. In the middle of all this, I’m also doing a great deal of travel writing, so I’m keeping myself busy.
I started writing poetry at the age of 15 – it was all fairly emo, as almost everything is at age 15; but I didn’t start writing fiction until about 1999.
Being that my mother had always been an enormous fan of psychological or gothic horror (she started reading Poe when she was 4), it seems that I’d always been a fan of horror – especially within the splatter genre in my younger years, and was always reading horror anthologies as well as poring through tomes by Clive Barker, Stephen King, Robert Bloch, Nancy A. Collins, Poppy Z. Brite, John Skipp and Craig Spector.
As I got older, I discovered the Hot Blood series, and became fascinated with erotic horror. For some reason, the combination of seduction, passion and gruesome, bloody trysts with psychologically jarring elements had me hooked.
Thank you for visiting, and I hope you enjoy my work!
