How long have you been writing?
: About 18 years.
What is the best book you have ever read?
: The Shining. That book scared the hell out of me and was very entertaining. Right up my alley!
Who is your favorite author?
: Stephen King, because he is so imaginative. But I also love the style of Richard Matheson as well.
What is the best story you have ever written?
: I think it would be one called "Car Games". It's in my new collection, Twilight Ruminations.
What is some advice you would give new writers?
