Why did you decide to be a writer?
My father always said I could tell a good story, especially when I came home late and I had to think fast. LOL And I’ve always loved horror movies as a child and teen. Torso was the first Horror/Thriller I’ve ever seen.
Do you have a “day job”? If so, what do you do?
My day job is what I do. I’m a full time book writer and country song writer.
What genres do you write?
Horror and paranormal with a little comedy and romance.
Is there a genre that you’ve been wanting to experiment with? If so, what is it and what attracts you to it?
Action. Westerns. What attracts me to western movies and books is it takes you back in time to a place and feel of how the world once was. Plus I used to train horses.
What inspires you to write?
The fact that I love Horror and the paranormal and I love for people to experience the thrill of a good scare.and its a way for me to share the realness of both the paranormal and Horror.
What authors/books have most influenced you?
Wes Craven, Steven King, Larry McMurtry, and Steven Spielberg
If you could choose an author to be your mentor, who would it be?
When did you first consider yourself an author?
After the first sale of my book, I received great reviews from people asking and telling me to write more. They actually were calling me an author before I was calling myself one.
