1) Why did you choose to write horror?
I love the genre, there are so many stories to tell. I started writing paranormal romance, but with a darker side to it, before I released my first horror story - Halflings - last year.
2) What is your fav thing about the genre?
I love how diverse it is and how many different monsters, creatures and other horrible things can be included in a story. Horror is different for everyone. Some like gore, some like psychological and everyone has a phobia.
3) Tell us about your latest book
Halflings is the first book in a series about a young woman called Riley who discovers she is more than she thought. Supernatural creatures exist and they must be stopped and Riley finds herself dragged into that life. It isn't easy, especially when she falls for the enemy. There are a lot of different themes in it and I hope readers enjoy it.
4) If you had one piece of advice about writing horror, what would it be?
Go for the unexpected. Think about the worst possible thing that could happen to your character and then let it happen to them.
5) Who are your fav women in horror?
Oh, so many! I love Anne Rice, Susan Hill and some more recent writers like D.J. Doyle and S. K. Gregory. I do love horror movies, but the older ones with actresses like Jamie Lee Curtis. I am a big fan of Halloween.
