I read that you grew up in a haunted house!? Is that why you write horror movies (and books, I guess)?
Yes, I spent the first thirteen years of my life living in a severely haunted house in Jackson, New Jersey. As a child, I developed the ability to communicate with both human and non-human spirits and have had terrible interactions with demonic forces in my adult years as well. All of this has definitely influenced my writing. Not many people have experienced the level of paranormal fear that has coursed through my own veins, so I think it gives me a unique advantage when writing horror movies (and now horror novels).
I love the horror genre. The fans are simple THE BEST. I wouldn't have it any other way. :-)
