I love writing characters and watching them take on personalities outside of my control. When I write I’m taken on for the ride as much as the reader. It’s always a thrill to see where a story goes and what mischief the characters get into.(less)

Nope!

Just kidding. I actually love happy stories and have written some scripts for kid shows. I'm still most influenced by horror and macabre, though, so usually I'm working on something with tragic characters, dark themes, and impending doom.(less)

An out-of-print creature feature! Snakes are my favorite beast to go berserk and here we have a satisfying nest of Indian cobras terrorizing a New York City apartment building. It's a good set-up that's just as zany as one would expect and hope for. ...more

Does it live up to the hype?! R.L. Stine has made They Call Me the Night Howler one of the most anticipated books of the year (for Goosebumps fans, anyway) thanks to a surprisingly impassioned campaign of calling it his best work in decades. This is ...more

Justin Tate, The Death Sonnets

“Someone once asked me what I thought horror fiction did. What its purpose was . . . I replied that when I wrote horror fiction, I tried to take the improbable, the unimaginable, and the impossible, and make it seem not only possible--but inevitable.”
Michael McDowell

“He felt at once betrayed and betrayer, deceived and deceiver. He was a criminal forced into crime, an unwilling whore.”
Peter Benchley, Jaws
