MURDER COASTER is a weekly true crime podcast, delving deep into the stories and psychology surrounding the world’s most bizarre and brutal crimes

Christa Carmen lives in Rhode Island and is the Bram Stoker Award-nominated author of the short story collection Something Borrowed, Something Blood-Soaked. Her debut novel, The Daughters of Block Island, will be released this fall from Thomas & Mercer. Additional work can be found in Vastarien, NightmareOrphans of Bliss, Year’s Best Hardcore Horror, and the Stoker-nominated anthologies, Not All Monsters and The Streaming of Hill House.

She loves true crime because, as a woman, she feels consuming stories of kidnappings and murder are equal parts survival skills 101 and exposure therapy. In other words, don’t try to sneak up on her while she’s jogging, because she’s got one headphone out and one hand on her pepper spray.
