About Us

Keep It Creepy.


To say we’re fans of everything creepy would be an understatement. Whether it’s the latest Stephen King book, a collection of under-the-radar horror movies, or an unsolved case that’s still haunting us 50 years later, we’re dying to share our latest dark obsessions with fellow enthusiasts.

Check back daily as we unearth historical crimes, real ghost stories, and the scariest book recommendations. And sign up for our newsletter to get our top creepiest tales delivered straight to your inbox every week. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to join in the conversation.

And if you unearth any hot tips or strange finds, clue us in at editor@the-line-up.com.

Our Editorial Policy

Everything we cover—from highbrow literary pieces to Internet memes—is chosen by our editors, regardless of media affiliation. If our parent company or one of our partners has a story they know you’d kill to read, you’ll see a tag with their name by it—no foul play.

Our Team

Catherine Phelan, Director of Content Strategy

Catherine has been writing and editing for the web since moving to New York City. Her first memory is of realizing that C A T meant cat—and she hasn’t stopped reading since. Recently, Catherine has been making her way through the classic mystery novels of Agatha Christie.

Lisa Quigley, Senior Editor

A horror author herself, Lisa has long been a lover of all things strange, spooky, and macabre. In addition to her duties at the helm of The Lineup, she's the co-host of the award-winning horror podcast Ladies of the Fright. If she's not reading creepy, witchy, or metaphysical books, she's probably hiking, camping, cross-stitching, listening to podcasts, cuddling her two kids, drinking craft beer, or binging the latest unsettling TV show.

Kelsey McConnell, Assistant Editor

Dipping a toe into all forms of media, Kelsey McConnell received her bachelor’s degree in Film and Television Production from San Diego State University, as well as an MFA in Musical Theatre Writing from NYU. She got her start in the online editorial world by reviewing and analyzing the social impact of comic books. While an avid reader and writer in her downtime, she’s also a big movie buff and proud dog mom.

Jennifer Jackson, Founder

A lover of all things digital, Jennifer has been editing and writing for websites and reading ebooks for the better part of a decade. She checks Goodreads every morning for new book recommendations, and she’s recently discovered a love of British murder mystery TV series which she plans to investigate further.
