Fractured by Erin Hayes
Publication date: July 8th 2014
Genres: Adult, Horror


Blinded by a mysterious seizure when she was three years old, Bash Martin has managed to carve out a normal life for herself as an adult. Yet she still yearns for a deeper connection with her twin sister Lily, who has always been jealous of the attention their parents bestowed upon Bash due to her disability.

A dream vacation seems like the perfect chance to heal their relationship, but Bash soon realizes there is something terribly wrong with Lily and that her sister is hiding a dark secret. And when a supernatural fire engulfs their hotel and corpses come back to life, the sisters are plunged into a nightmarish world that threatens not only their lives, but their very souls.




Sci-fi junkie, video game nerd, and wannabe manga artist, Erin Hayes writes a lot of things. Sometimes she writes books, like the fantasy mystery Death is but a Dream and the sci-fi middle grade book Jacob Smith is Incredibly Average.

You can reach her at and she’ll be happy to chat. Especially if you want to debate Star Wars.

Top 10 Favourite Films

Hi there!

I’m Erin Hayes and I’m the author of the horror novel Fractured and a few other books across a wide variety of genres. I’m sci-fi nerd, a geek, and a bookworm. But I’m also a movie buff who loves movies.

So, let’s do things a bit differently today and check out my top ten favorites films. Some may be those you’ve heard about before. And others may be really obscured.

Here we go from the top:

10. District 9
The beginning started a bit rough for me, but once it got going, OMG was I hooked!

9. Aladdin
I think Aladdin was the Disney movie that had the most impact on me as a child. I was entranced by the magic in it.

8. Monty Python and the Holy Grail
I had no idea what it was when we popped it in the DVD player, and I still might not know everything about it. But I quote it probably 27 times a day.

7. Nosferatu
I had the pleasure of seeing a screening of this with a live orchestra. It takes a lot for something to spook me, but this managed to do it easily.

6. Alien
Speaking of spooking me, Alien did that too. And it combines horror, science fiction, H.R. Giger and Sigourney Weaver. It doesn’t get much better than that.

5.         The Fifth Element
Science fiction was never as fun as it was in The Fifth Element. A big, sweeping epic. A love story. Light versus Darkness. And Milla Jovovich kicking boo-tay.

4. Oldboy
Oldboy is a Korean movie that unfolds like some weird, horrific puzzle. The music is great. The cinematography is great. And I still watch it with my jaw dropped.

3. Star Wars
This is for the original trilogy. These were the movies that opened up the universe to me. And I love them for that.

2. Princess Mononoke
This Japanese animated movie by Hayao Miyazaki is my second favorite movie for good reason. It’s beautiful and you can tell that this story is Miyazaki at his best.

1. Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
This is it, the ultimate. My favorite movie since I was too. It combines film noir with my favorite animated characters and holds up so well. I was sad when Bob Hoskins died this year. It was like Eddie Valiant dying for me.

Thank you so much for having me, and I hope you enjoyed this list and maybe found some new movies to watch! Enjoy.
