Hotel of Horrors

with Author Aminah Iman

About this episode

Audra Russell speaks with horror author Aminah Iman.

Aminah Iman left her job to write in 2005 and is the author of 18 books, all published under Red Ink Publications (of which she is CEO). She clearly loves what she does and has a big heart for helping other authors find success.

She took newcomers Jaqueline Stone, Nefertiti and Omega in to rally the all women of color publication house. She started writing at a young age and believes, whether read, spoken, or written, words are the essence of power. Aminah loves reading as much as she loves writing and spends a great deal of her free time immersed in the pages of a book. Her genres range from Historical Fiction, Horror and Supernatural which she has read and written for over 15 years.  

We laugh way too much as we talk all things horror, including her new short story collection, Hotel of Horrors, which releases on Halloween; the importance of Black representation in horror; and her “Mind Palace” where she stores lots of creepy facts to use in her writing.

So sit back, relax, and enjoy! Just…don’t drink her coffee, y’all! LOL!
