Hasn't anyone ever warned you that it's the sweet-looking ones you have to watch out for?

I almost feel like the genre chose me more than the other way around. I grew up watching horror movies and the X-Files. By the time I was 12, adults were handing me Patricia Cornwell novels and telling me, "I think you'll like this." So I guess I've always been intrigued by the darker sides of humanity and the things that go bump in the night.(less)
