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)

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
