I want to once again thank Michael David Wilson and Bob Pastorella at THIS IS HORROR for devoting three episodes to this epic interview.
All three parts are available using the links below. I hope you find them interesting, inspiring or hopefully a tiny bit useful if you’re a writer or fan of writing.
Part ONE – TIH Episode 150
In which I discuss my biggest fears, my thoughts on story structure for prose and screenplays, and some of my screenwriting experiences.
Part TWO – TiH Episode 151
I discuss my early – unpublished – literary novels and how writing lit fiction helped develop some of my tools for genre fiction. Also chat more about screenwriting and my personal take on why horror is a great escape from the real world horrors we live with every day.
Part THREE – TiH Episode 152
I discuss my writing habits, talk about my experiences with the folks at the Lovecraft eZine, and offer some take-it-or-leave-it advice for writers from my own experiences or passed down from far more talented folks than I.
