MARELIZE ROETS

STORYTELLER

I am a fiction author who focuses on literary fiction, psychological horror, and realism. I aim to remove the crutch that is gore and high shock-value from the horror genre and embrace the true challenge of bringing about real, psychological fear to an audience that is persistently more and more numb to its tactics.

"What scares me is what scares you. We're all afraid of the same things. That's why horror is such a powerful genre. All you have to do is ask yourself what frightens you and you'll know what frightens me."

John Carpenter
