Question: What is the title of your current book, and tell us a little about it.
Nine Short Horror Stories, Vol. 1
This book features nine completely original works. My mentor, Joan Hovey, accomplished author from New Brunswick, strongly encouraged me to publish every one she read.
Each story explores human suffering, pain and the last stitch effort to escape into the light. Many of these stories reveal light and darkness don’t always speak loud enough to guide. In some cases, nothing reaches out? The prevailing question is whether hope is a matter of emotional discernment or a state of the spirit.
Last question, if someone comes across this article and reads it, what would you like to tell them about why you think they should try reading your book or books?
My website: www.bestshorthorrorstories.com offers my best in a collection of separate horror stories.
Each story is presented (all or in part) with its
· *written form
· *video trailer
· *audio book (read and dramatized),
· *script (if applicable)
· *and in some cases, its own short film.
At this point in time, all of it is free online.
In addition, a new downloadable program will be offered in late summer 2015 to show how I create a full-fledged story production in such a short turn-around (roughly 21 days or less). This will be a product to purchase.
Anything else you'd like to add that I didn't ask you, but you would like to share with our readers?
Many authors claim they love to write for the sake of writing. I will echo the same.
In addition, there is a unique set of reasons for my writing.
Long ago, I met the most spellbinding speaker of my life. He could tell a powerful story within four minutes and leave you speechless and alone, casting you upon on the edge of powerful emotions you never knew you could feel.
In the same time period, my mother also possessed this unique skill.
On a very deep level, my soul wants to carve my own story telling upon life’s stone canvas.
And I desire to do it out of pure respect for these two great storytellers in my life, my mother and the Catholic pastor of the Church we attended.
You may ask me why I choose horror.
The first short story collection that scared me to my core was entitled, "Night Shift" by Stephen King.So, thank you Mr. King for introducing me to my own fears at a young age.
And thank you mom (R.I.P.) for emotionally influencing value via stories into my life.
And thank you Father Eder (R.I.P), for reminding me that there are other intense emotions to feel other than fear from a short story/lecture.
I write to convey the purity of intense emotion(s) with my story telling. And maybe you will remember not the words written, but what you felt.
Blog Writer's Note to Author: I've always enjoyed great horror writing and the writer's who know how to do it well. Just like you I love reading Stephen King stories. I'll definitely check out your books. They sound quite interesting and amazing. Good luck with your writing, and thanks for the interview.
