About this author

I have had a fascination with all sorts of horror fiction since childhood, and it has been the driving force of my desire to write. After meeting Sue Townsend, the author of the Adrian Mole books, at the age of eight, I longed to be a writer. I write horror novels for both adults and teenagers.

Tracy Best wishes with your novels. I agree that ticking clocks on mantles do somehow set the mind wandering into creative zones.

message 16: by Lorinda

Lorinda Taylor Thanks for the invitation to join the Teen Horror Group, but I never write either teen fiction or horror fiction and have minimal interest in those genres, so I'll have to pass. I'm in more groups than I can handle already! :-)

message 5: by Ed

Ed Rambeau Thanks for accepting my friend request, C.J. You seem like an interesting person, as well as quite the accomplished author, so feel free to tell me more about yourself. I, myself, am a singer/songwriter/actor who has recently turned author. My 2 top ten recordings were CONCRETE & CLAY (as a singer) and NAVY BLUE (as a writer)...both in the early 1960's. My first novel is an unusual murder mystery entitled: FORBIDDEN STEPS.

Regards, and have a great day, Ed
