Unique Writer, Living Poet and Determined Author by day and night, I have always been told I have a way with words and very vivid imagination.

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)

You’re probably thinking yes but now your thinking about the last horror movie you saw and realized it had no blood in it at all. Horror doesn’t need blood to win people over or catch their attentions but it is used as an effect because it is so associated and common in horror that it’s just naturally assumed that horror has to have blood but it really doesn’t. Sure, vampire novels and movies n...
