About Lydia Prime
Lydia Prime is a New Jersey born creature of the night. Her short story, Sadie, (published in Kandisha Press’, Under Her Black Wings: 2020 Women in Horror Anthology) won the 23rd Critters Annual Readers Poll for Best Horror Short Story (2020). When Lydia isn’t releasing monstrosities from her mind, she happily helps others work with their brain children through her editing services. On Fridays, she even offers free faulty advice to those in need. Charitable, and chilling—what a gal!

"With Under Her Black Wings, Kandisha Press has put together a collection of stories that touch upon a wide variety of subjects and give glimpses of horror from all over the world. The collection serves as a wonderful introduction to a lot of authors that I had not been acquainted with before, and also contains a few tales from some familiar faces. Among the familiar faces, The Sisters of Slaughter present Desert Kisses, a tale of revenge that reminds us that hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. Somer Canon delivers one of the most fun stories we come across with The Riddled Path. It's simultaneously hilarious and horrifying...There were so many new to me authors that caught my attention....If you are looking to adorn your shelves with some accomplished ladies of horror fiction, Under Her Black Wings is an appropriately worthy gateway." - Brennan LaFaro, DeadHead Reviews (abridged)
