1. Who has been the biggest influence on you as a female horror writer?
My mother, she loved reading horror, crime and fantasy books and I still have her library.
2. Do you think the style of horror differs between women and men authors? E.g. psychological vs gore?
I write paranormal/fantasy horror so I am all about psychological elements to the genre but I have a fair amount of ew… gore. I grew up reading Graham Masterton so I also take influence from him. Stephen King is also very psychological in his writing so I don’t think there is a defining difference.
3. Do you have a main subject that your write about? I.e. certain bad guys or themes?
Not really, I take mythology and society’s stigmas and mix them up into their own meaning. I try to have a moral to all my books, but it is for the readers to see, not for me to tell them what they should take from my books.
4. If you could have dinner with a famous horror writer, living or dead, who would it be and why?
I have been compared to Lovecraft, and J, R, R Tolkien, I grew up watching the Hammer Horrors and lots of other horror movies, I read Dean Koontz and Graham Masterton too. I would love to go to a horror themed dinner with all of these writers and talk horror.
5. Favorite female horror writer? Why?
Barbara Erskine is my favourite female horror writer, she is great with historical details, psychology and most of all her scene setting is second to none.
