I had read plenty of poetry but one day without having read any in a while just decided to write a poem and it took off from there. So in that sense I chose the genre.

When it comes to horror I think at times it chooses me. At times it calls me on to write it and given that it's horror, who am I to object? (less)

I'm proud and surprised to have four at the moment and I'm always thinking of ideas for my next book but never really thought about how many I'd want to have published. I suppose for me it's a take it by year sort of thing.(less)

The Difference Between A Residual and Intelligent Haunting

Ghosts. Some of us find them scary and some of us long to talk to them because they are our loved ones trying to reach out. Ghosts are beings that are still around after death.

So what exactly is the difference between a residual haunting and an intelligent haunting? Well...

Justin is 50% done with Dracula: Dear God! I never thought reading this book would feel like such a chore. Van Helsing praises Mina but rather than talk about Lucy he talks about Jonathan??? Huh??

Also who the hell talks like that and praises people they don't know? Oh how society has changed. ..
