From the day she was born, Bram Stoker Award-winner Jessica Landry has always been attracted to the darker things in life. Her fondest childhood memories include getting nightmares from the Goosebumps books, watching The Hilarious House of Frightenstein, and reiterating to her family that there was absolutely nothing wrong with her mental state.
Since then, Jessica’s fiction has appeared in many anthologies, including Tales of the Lost, Twice-Told: A Collection of Doubles, Monsters of Any Kind, Where Nightmares Come From, Lost Highways: Dark Fictions from the Road, and Fantastic Tales of Terror, among others. Her debut collection, The Mother Wound, is out now from Independent Legions Publishing, which includes her Bram Stoker Award-winning short story, “Mutter,” and her Shirley Jackson Award-nominated novelette, “I Will Find You, Even in the Dark.” As well, There Is No Death, There Are No Dead, an anthology co-edited with Aaron J. French, is set to be released in August from Crystal Lake Publishing; and her short story, “Carbon Rites,” will be appearing in Aliens vs Predators: Ultimate Prey, edited by Jonathan Maberry and Bryan Thomas Schmidt, out December 2021 from Titan Books.
Her original horror feature, MY ONLY SUNSHINE, was accepted into the Whistler Film Festival’s Screenwriters Lab in 2020 and is currently in development with Eagle Vision, producers of CBC’S BURDEN OF TRUTH. Alongside Neshama Entertainment, Jessica has written four MOWs: A SECRET TO KEEP, BREAST CANCER BUCKET LIST, DEADLY MOM RETREAT, and THE THERAPY NIGHTMARES, with several others in development. She’s also currently writing for APTN and Eagle Vision’s joint sitcom, FAMILY FIRST; Eagle Vision’s factual series, 7TH GEN; an original Christmas MOW with Vortex Media; a World War II biopic with Sir Harry Films; and has other projects in various stages of development.
Your best bet at finding her online (aside from where you are now) is on Facebook and Twitter where she often posts cat gifs and references Jurassic Park way too much. You can also check her out on IMDb.
