On Tour with Dead Writers is Z.J. Czupor‘s new installment on Rogue Women Writers. Guess the correct dead writer and be entered to win a free book.

Over the duration of her short life and writing career, this author wrote six novels, two memoirs and more than 200 short stories. Stephen King called her fifth novel, which combines psychology with the supernatural, “one of the most important horror novels of the twentieth century.” In 2007, an award was established in her name for outstanding achievement in the literature of psychological suspense, horror, and the dark fantastic.

Who was this award-winning horror and mystery writer?

The winner will be randomly chosen from those who respond to mysteryminutecontest@gmail.com with the correct answer by 12:00 p.m., ET, October 20th. The prize? A book by one of our Rogue authors! This month it will be Runner by Tracy Clark.
