Host, Voice Actor & Producer of NIGHTLIGHT: A Horror Fiction … & Voice Actor on Cast of Wonders
Tonia Thompson is the creator and executive producer of NIGHTLIGHT, a horror podcast featuring creepy tales from Black writers. Tonia has been writing horror since the second grade, much to the dismay of the teachers in her rural East Texas community. She is currently working on her first audio drama series, described as a podcast version of American Horror Story meets Superstition. Tonia tells horror stories regularly on Twitter, and in her spare time, she loves to hike, but normally chooses to sleep in instead. She lives in Texas with her husband and son, but dreams of living in Colorado, especially in the summer.
