What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
What about writing horror draws me?
I like to explore the darkest parts of the human pysche, that is what really fascinates me most. In Tales From The Library of a Twisted Mind, my collection of horror shorts, I tend to get into those issues pretty quickly. I am inspired by Stephen King, Dean Koontz and James Herbert, and have spent many happy hours curled up with their works. Disturbing matter is firmly tied in to the darker side of the human psyche in many ways, and I feel, has as much of a place in horror as the violence, shock and gore factors used by many authors.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Characters just pop into my mind when I am doing something else, meditating or going about my daily life, as do the stories themselves. There is no guessing who or what might trigger the muse.
Dimitris had a small crew left to finish up excavations at the site, when they made their final discovery. They had thought the site was finished at the edge of the mountain, but opportunistic excavations- really Dimitris was just filling a final week- discovered the entrance to an ancient cave.
The team of six dug their way into the cave, and were astonished to find, deep within, the biggest heap of obsidian blades they had ever seen. There must have been thousands of them in a pile. Dimitris was just pulling out his phone to call the museum of antiquities and let them know of his find, when a deep rumbling started up. The ground wobbled and shook, and Dimitris dropped his phone, which had no reception anyway.
“Earthquake,” he shouted. “We have to get out of this cave right now.”
