I wasn’t familiar with the Overdrive App until my sister told me about it. Her daughter had a reading assignment, and her teacher passed along information regarding the app that has changed the way I sit in traffic.
As a child, before I knew how to read or write, I loved to draw and I would illustrate pages and then dictate the stories to my mother, who would patiently write them down for me. Stories have been important to me ever since, and I see much...
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.
I have a ton of favorite authors and to a degree have been influenced by them all, but I would have to say if I had to drill it down to two specific people, it would be Stephen King and John Steinbeck.
