Today is the second post of my Whaddya Wanna Know? series. In this series, I answer questions posed by readers, fans, bloggers, and other authors ... in an attempt to further expose the inner workings of my deranged mind.
Where did your interest in horror stem from?
"I’ve always been drawn to horror, even when it scared the daylights out of me. When I was quite young, I used to sleepwalk. I would go into the living room, put the television on, and sit on the couch until I woke up or someone found me. This was back in the days before cable television was prevalent and one of the few things on late-night broadcast television was a horror program—Chiller Thriller or Creature Feature or something similar—so I would usually awaken to a movie featuring a monster of some type. If I was alone, I would finish it before going back to bed.
From those unusual seeds sprouted a true affinity for horror that I still retain. Thankfully, the nightmares stopped long ago."
This question came from an interview at Picked By Poison. You can read the original post here.
