When we watch fiction horror we play with dark and challenging emotions. Horror makes us stronger, smarter, emotionally robust, and more creative. In Mastering Fear: Women, Emotions, and Contemporary Horror (Bloomsbury 2018) I examine emotions and women in horror across the life phases from child to old age. Some will die and some survive – but we, the audience, learn to master fear.
The Single Series combines what I know from my research about emotions and choice, with my life experience as a single mother with a broken heart. Single & Rich is about money and Single & Fearless is about courage. The aim isn’t to make money or conquer fear.
