Photos Touched By Artist And Horror Writer Ann Thraxx


   Ann Thraxx is a writer and freelance graphics artist residing in the southern United States. Her passions stem from all things creative: books, film, art, and music. She adopted the AnnThraxx persona based not only on her love of the band Anthrax, but also with the idea that "creativity must be spread in order to 'infect' everyone." 

      Ann's interest in the graphics side of art, by her own admission, is a way to offer a unique perspective on photography, sketches, and paintings. Her approach is self-taught. Her consistent involvement in writing for the last 25 years is linked to her immense love of reading. She is fascinated with the macabre, and samples of her poetry, short stories, and many of the “Touched by AnnThraxx” creations can be found at www.annthraxx.wordpress.com

  Ann Thraxx is also involved as a writer and editor of www.riversofgrue.com and as publicist for www.outofmyheadradio.com

[Excerpt from an article written by Ann Thraxx]

       . . . The monsters in our head the monsters in our heart the monsters in our soul the monsters in our head the monsters in our heart the monsters in our soul the monsters in our head the monsters in our heart the monsters in our soul the monsters in our head the monsters in our heart the monsters in our soul the monsters in our head the monsters in our heart the monsters in our soul . . .

   Oh, my darling invisible friends, how the world has changed!! I am certainly not the oldest person in the world, but I have experienced the world long enough to know that change happens whether we want it or not. Years ago, this whole “internet” business was non-existent, and the only people you really knew were those you came in direct contact with…unless you were just geeky or curious enough to branch out and get one of those archaic things known as a pen-pal (I was, and I did) and even then, you only knew what was written on that piece of paper that came in the mail, or what photos were included, and even then it was a given that all of that information could be a lie.


   Nowadays, it’s incredibly easy to lie. You can become a totally different person with a few keystrokes! Why, all you really have to do is think of who you want to be, type it out all neat and tidy-like, and voila! You are now Sam Jones, Athletic Director for the prestigious School of Really Smart People Who Like To Be Athletic (apologies to anyone named Sam Jones…)

     I have encountered quite a few people online in the last several years. Some are exactly what they portray on the screen, and some are brazen crazies online and perfectly sane in person….and some are somewhere in between. Some people forever hide behind cartoon avatars and others give airs of being incredibly educated or influential, when in real life they are trembling wallflowers…

     Why is that? Why exactly must you always pretend? Doesn't it get tiresome? I'm so puzzled by this double-agent mentality. I've been thinking in recent weeks about my own online persona. Granted, the name “Ann Thraxx” is not my actual name. But I like that name, and have even told people, “Call me Annie,” because really, my pen-name has become an integral part of me. 

    It is my nom de plume and rather than hide behind it, I've simply absorbed it. I am Ann Thraxx, and that’s okay. I can differentiate between stepping outside my door and going to pay a bill or signing for a package, and signing my alias to the various little notes I leave on Instagram. It’s not rocket science…

article WHO ARE YOU here

By Ann Thraxx

Remember when we put our heads together and came up with a plan?
… and everything was simple, back then.
It didn't matter if the trip into this Neverland would cost us our sanity
… because everything was eerily simple, back then.

I remember all too well,
that willingness to step onto the coals of Hell.
I remember you beckoning me forward,
reminding me to ignore the heat.

I recall the smell of my flesh against the fire
with the first step, and the second.
The sound…
soft moans of pain
leaking from my throat,

as I tried to keep it in my head that
we would be unstoppable together.

I faltered, I remember.
I stumbled.

I remember you whispering that I could be wicked, if I wanted.
I remember you murmuring your admiration for my lack of caution.
But I tripped, and fell, burning my hands and knees
and your eyes glazed over with disinterest when you heard my pleas.

My failure… your disgust.
Your forked tongue… my mistrust.

Everything was simple, back then.
Everything was eerily simple.

Every day is a struggle now,
remembering that I am supposed to be normal…
forgetting you, little by little…
watching the scars of our trip through brimstone
heal, little by little…

I remember you retreating back into your psychosis,
wishing I could slip in with you…

I hope when I forget you
you’ll still remember me.
