How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
I write horror with an edge of other genres. The stories and the books are also very character driven. I’m focused on making a story that engrosses the reader and gives them edges of the surreal and scary at the same time. It can be hard to keep both of those elements going without giving too much of one of the other.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Read and write as much as you possibly can. Edit and edit until you can’t anymore and then find some readers to tell you what you missed and edit it again.

A dream about a very creepy ghost that stuck with me long after. I could swear I saw her out of the corner of my eye standing my door frames, at the edges of beds crouching, it was very surreal and it stuck with me until I started writing it.
