Advice I would give to aspiring writers:

Read. All the time, in all genres. Always carry a book with you. Don’t go to sleep until you’ve read at least a chapter a day.

If you want to be a writer, just write. Don’t form a group and talk about writing. Don’t go out to coff...

What inspires you to write?

I love creating. Simply put, it gives me great joy. I love writing, and it stems from a long love of reading. As a child, I'd stay up late, always pushing curfew, needing one more chapter. The first time I stayed up all night reading-- sunlig...

How did you become a writer?

When I was eleven, I have the vivid memory of swimming in my backyard pool and talking to myself. Alone, my daydreams became words and I began creating magical creatures. Later I can say I wasn’t so much telling myself a story as building an...

How did you become a writer?

The first short story I wrote was in 6th grade. It was an adaptation of Lover’s Vow, the final segment in 1990’s Tales From the Darkside: The Movie – a horror anthology film. I knew then I wanted to write horror.

Before that, I had been watch...
