1. Who has been the biggest influence on you as a female horror writer?
I don't think anyone has particularly influenced me or my writing. I would say that my friends have encouraged whatever twisted stories my mind comes up with. I watch movies and listen to music for inspiration, so you could say that a lot of things have influenced me.
2. Do you think the style of horror differs between women and men authors? E.g. psychological vs gore?
I haven't noticed a difference between how men and women write horror. I think it depends on the author as an individual. I prefer a nice mix of both.
3. Do you have a main subject that your write about? I.e. certain bad guys or themes?
I like to dabble in all genres, but I think my favorite is paranormal. The possibilities are endless and most times I'm able to take my stories further than they would have gone in any other genre.
4. If you could have dinner with a famous horror writer, living or dead, who would it be and why?
I would have to go with Stephen King. I think his work is really interesting and I'd like to pick his brain, and, of course, get some advice.
5. Favorite female horror writer? Why?
I know this might be an unpopular answer, but I don't read very much. I used to, but like many other things, it distracted me from my own work. I use all kinds of excuses not to get any writing done. Years ago, I decided that I would rather be writing my own book than reading someone else's. I'll get back into reading one of these days.
