Recently retired from a decade of radio work, Kristy Jett lives the dream that every horror fangirl one day aspires to achieve. A former contributor to Bloody-Disgusting, she now writes for Dread Central, TheDreaminDemon, Freddy In Space, It Goes to 11, and even Fangoria. This coming fall she will actually be contributing pieces to the PUBLISHED work of Ax Wound as well as Paracinema magazines. One of her lesser known, but more fun contributions is the horror chat commentary episodes (that I even get to participate in!) called Push Up Your Horror Nerd Glasses.
The Blood Sprayer. She acts not just as a contributing author, but also an editor as well as a talent scout of sorts by locating writing talent for the website.
Most notably, she is the feisty woman working for Fright-Rags. As a powerhouse at promotions and shirt sellings, Kristy has been flooding the facebook waves with horror news and Fright-Rags goodies for months now. I cannot even begin to tell you the huge craze she helped fuel with their Team David/Anti-Twilight t-shirt.
If you live in the NY/New England area, it's nearly impossible to go to a film festival or a horror convention and NOT see Kristy Jett hanging around, chumming it up with horror idols and putting a smile on just about everyone's face who comes within a 100yd radius to her. Not only is Kristy ridiculously talented at writing, networking, and spreading the love of the horror word, but she's also one of the most selfless people I've ever come to know. Kristy isn't one of those people who keeps her connections and her talents to herself, she's a professional bleeding heart and is willing to help absolutely anyone and everyone she deems worthy. On a personal note, I wouldn't know half the people I do know if it wasn't for her, and I wouldn't nearly be as involved in the horror community to the extent I am without her.
She's an absolutely incredible individual with one of the biggest hearts I've ever seen, and she by far epitomizes what it means to be a woman in the horror community. I salute you Kristy Jett for all that you do, and thank you for your countless contributions to making the woman's voice heard a little bit louder.
