Emily + Weird Darkness YouTube Channel

Last year I discovered something pretty great.

I was looking for something spooky, that I hadn’t seen before and found myself listening to episode after episode of Weird Darkness while I worked.


What is Weird Darkness?

Straight from the website, Weird Darkness is made up of stories of the paranormal.  Creator and host Darren Marlar presents stories of ghosts, demons, cryptids, unsolved, mysteries, aliens, and other things dark from a variety of published authors as well as our fans.

Who is Darren Marlar? Well, he is a working actor, voice artist, and radio personality and to be honest, I think he’s one of the best. I love his voice. It’s absolutely fantastic for movies and the radio, don’t you think?

Emily – A YA horror short

A while back, I wrote a creepy short story for Julie Hutchings and Kristen Strassel’s Flash Fiction showcase, called March Madness. My piece was called Emily. It was dark. About a girl who was locked away in a mental institution. Because, what is a better background for horror stories than a mental institution?

Anywho, I submitted my story to Weird Darkness…and I am so honored that Darren chose it to include in his showcase.

I think that Darren’s voice and the fantastic production really brings my story alive. I seriously got goosebumps just hearing him read it.


Won’t You Listen and Get Creeped Out?

Listen to Emily here. I’d really recommend listening to the whole episode, and if you like what you listened to, pretty please like it, share it, or leave a comment. I’d love to hear what you think!
