Where do you want to be in 10 years?
I would love to be living in the house that inspired the home in my Spiritus Series and still writing scary stories.

What is the biggest mistake you've made in your life?
My biggest mistake would be when I let "life" get in the way of writing. I lost some precious years trying to do what I was expected to do instead of what I wanted to do.

What would you do for a Klondike bar?
I could kill off your favorite character...

Favorite Memory: I was little, probably not even in school, sitting at my grandmother's desk pretending to write my masterpiece. I was also drinking soda out of a brandy glass. The would be one of my first memories of being a writer.

Favorite Place To Write
I love to write in the center of the house. I can't shut myself away in complete silence. If I do, I end up trying to solve the world's problems instead of writing.

Greatest Inspiration
I look to real places and my own actual experiences for inspiration.
