In honor of Samhain launching their horror line next month I thought it would be fun to write a story starter for the horror genre. Of course this is a romance writing blog but I think the horror/romance genres can blend quite well. (My hubby calls it hormance:-D.)

Your heroine is a scientist and a workaholic. She brings her work home with her sometimes. Living alone, it’s not a problem. There’s little risk. Course she wouldn’t mind bumping into her new neighbor more often. She’s working on a new project late one night when she sees something hideous emerge from her neighbor’s basement. What does she see? What does she do? Who or what is it that lives in her neighbor’s house?
