Colorado-bred writer, Christina Bergling, sold her soul early into the writing game. By fourth grade, she knew she wanted to be an author. In college, she studied English with a Professional Writing emphasis. Her creative nonfiction class yielded two pieces that were later published—Tell Me About Your First Time in the college literary magazine riverrun and How to Kill Yourself Slowly on denversyntax.com.

However, with the realities of eating and paying bills, the survivalist in her hocked her passion for dystopian horror for a profession as a technical writer and document manager. Bergling published the short story Death and Other Disappointments while working as a technical writer for a Department of Defense contractor. That job took her to Iraq for one rotation, which cracked her mind open to a whole new perspective and started infecting her writing. She blogged from Iraq and during pregnancy and now continues another blog centered on running.

Her debut novella, Savages, was released in December 2014 and was followed by a second, The Waning, in July 2015.

    I saw that you commented on my blog! I’m working on building the greatest horror blogging guild ever. Here is some info:

    I am writing to tell you about the Horror Bloggers Guild (HBG). The HBG is a new resource and community for horror bloggers to join forces and do cool things. My vision is to develop an awesome group of the top horror bloggers on the internet in order to make it easy for the internet to find us, create a space for collaboration and swapping tips, and moral support.

    Blogging is hard. Bloggers can get discouraged and isolated. Bloggers in general rarely make it past 6 months. I’ve had a hell of a lot of fun and probably would not have continued blogging if I did not meet some other cool bloggers that helped me on my way. New things are on the horizon and I’m game for any idea that comes along.

    If you are interested in learning more about the HBR you can check out our site here: http://horrorbloggersguild.weebly.com/

    If you would like to join the HBR you can submit your application here:

    You can also join the Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/260723900784249/

    Sincerely with slippery intestines,
