Where do you get your ideas?
Everywhere. I can get an idea while watching TV (like I did for STATE OF EMERGENCY), listening to someone speak, or even just browsing the web. But don’t worry — if an idea is inspired by you, I won’t reveal any personal information.
Why horror? Are you a serial killer?
Horror writers are some of the nicest people you’ll ever encounter. Horror is cathartic, so we unleash our rage in a word document, then everything is sunshine and roses for awhile.
You wrote a whole novel so essays should be easy for you, right?
No. Essays and novels are two completely different beasts.
So you write young adult fiction. Is your book like Twilight?
I have a great idea for a book! Will you write it?
Will you read my book?
