What Readers are Saying

With a creepy and realistic vibe, Dread pulls you in right from the start and keeps you reading. Set in the middle of a spooky town, the end of this story will shock you! Dotted with believable characters and dialogue, I really felt myself drawn into the story, picturing every word inside my head.

Kayla Krantz,


Terror at 5280' story - There's Something Up There by Joy Yehle. This story was one of my favorites. It managed to make me feel bad for the characters with their tragic backstories. I loved how the emotional aspects didn’t stop the scenes from being full of suspense. Chills definitely went down my spine.

Reviewer at Gingernuts of Horror

Joy is an author of horror and dark fiction. Although she claims Denver and Calgary, Alberta as her hometowns, she makes her base in a small Colorado town along the Front Range.


She likes to imagine the dark in everyday situations and in the unexpected evil right next door. According to her, nothing is scarier than an evil that can walk around in the light, nowhere is safe.

When Joy is not crafting dark and terrible stories for her readers she can be found wandering around haunted locations, cemeteries, or communing with the dark side.

If she is oddly missing from those places, she is probably camping or hiking with her very patient husband, gaggle of kids and grandkids, a gray tabby cat, a rescued Pitsky, and a very rambunctious German Shepherd.
