Profile: Annie Neugebauer

Hi! Thanks for stopping by. You’re probably here because you found me through writerly venues, but I’m also a wife, mom, cat mom, dancer, and self-professed craftologist. At social gatherings, I’m the one awkwardly pretending not to be awkward.

As far as the writing goes, I specialize in horror, literary fiction, poetry, gothic, and speculative fiction. I’m a two-time Bram Stoker Award®-nominated author. I have work appearing in more than a hundred publications, including magazines such as ApexBlack Static, and Cemetery Dance, as well as anthologies such as Year’s Best Hardcore Horror Volumes 3, 4, and 5 and #1 Amazon bestsellers Killing It Softly and Fire. My stories “Hide” and “So Sings the Siren” are honorable mentions for Ellen Datlow’s Best Horror of the Year series. My book of poetry received an honorable mention in the Stevens Competition by the National Federation of State Poetry Societies and placed 2nd in the Edwin M. Eakin Memorial Book Publication Award by the Poetry Society of Texas. I’m represented by Alec Shane of Writers House.

I like to stay involved in the writing community. I’m a founding member and past president of the Denton Writers’ Critique Group, member of the Poetry Society of Texas and the National Federation of State Poetry Societies, and active member of the Horror Writers Association. I’m honored to be a columnist at two different Writer’s Digest award-winning websites: Writer Unboxed and LitReactor.

I live in Texas with two terribly cute cats, an even cuter baby, and a husband who’s exceptionally well-prepared for the zombie apocalypse. I’m hyperactively organized and willing to share that neurosis with other writers at The Organized Writer. While you’re here, you can also find my published works, read the latest buzz about them, and browse pictures of writers’ offices at The Decorative Writer. I usually post new blogs 1-4 times a month, and I love to read your comments! You can also find me flitting around the Twit-o-sphere @AnnieNeugebauer, and generally hanging out anywhere books live.

Most Recently Published Work (as of July 2020)


2019. The year certainly made its mark on the world—and more than its share of scars. It also made for a bounty of good horror stories of the extreme kind, the best of which the tales herein serve to illustrate.

2019 was the year Year’s Best Hardcore Horror went global. Not by design but because the stories inside just happened to have been written by authors hailing from various parts of the globe. From Australia by way of South Africa, to Italy, Scotland, Norway, Taiwan, North America and India–the common denominator being that their tales come from darkest regions of imagination.
