I don't only write horror, but I mostly do. Why? Because humans are hard-wired to feel fear, so nothing affects us quite as much as a good scare. Besides, whether it's a community facing a zombie invasion or one man alone struggling with his inner demons, there's no better way to illuminate the very best and worst of mankind's nature than against a dark background.

I always have at least two or three pieces on the go at any given time, so if I get stuck, I either leave it and dig into another story, or else I go back to page one and spend a few days editing what I have so far. More often than not, the simple act of rereading the story from the start will get the juices flowing again.(less)

Thanks for the question, David!
I put it down to the TV shows I watched growing up, especially shows like Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Twilight Zone & Night Gallery. I loved that I could be completely engrossed in the story, and then there would come a little twist at the end that turned the whole thing upside-down and threw it right back at the viewer, usually to illuminate some dark corner of mankind's nature. Rod Serling was a master at the art, and he more than any other inspired me to start dreaming up my own stories. I'll never be able to do what he did, but if I could have even a fraction of that man's talent, I'd be a happy man!(less)
