JULY 1, 2017
A few weeks ago I was fortunate enough to be asked to come on the THIS IS HORROR podcast, one of the premier horror podcasts and editorial websites in the world.
What was supposed to be a 2-hour interview became an epic 4+ hour dialogue about how I started writing, my biggest fears and inspirations, screenplay work and story structure, what I have coming up next, and much, much more.
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.
Hope you check it out and enjoy it.
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I discuss my early – unpublished – literary novels and how writing lit fiction helped develop some of my tools for genre fiction.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.
