About Mark Souza

I lead a pretty boring life, really. During the day, I build jet aircraft - well, not all by myself - I do my part. At night, I create monsters and new worlds for them to play in. I write fiction - horror mostly, but my interests are broad and I will not be boxed into one genre. The only thing I can promise readers is a commitment to keep them entertained. I hope to become one of your favorite authors.

After reading this story, I will never look at a cornfield the same way. A lot of action and creepiness is packed into this short story. The characters are well-developed and the plot steadily takes us from a sweet opening to a horrifying end. I loved the writing style, the imagery, and everything else about Cupid's Maze.

Definitely agree with this being a 'Stephen King'-esque take on corn mazes. Good dialogue, description etc. The next horror/thriller bestselling author.

A fun little story! Good dialogue; I felt I was in the car with the two characters. Good creepy creatures. Enough tension to give you a scare. I came away with a chilling dislike of corn mazes! Well done.

This was the first of Souza's work that I had ever read, and I was hooked by his tight, believable prose right away. The "signposts" within his story were perfect. He didn't give too much away, but enough to make one pause momentarily, knowingly. We didn't know what was coming. We only knew that we had to find out what it was.
I will definitely be back for more and will never, ever stop the car.

Definitely creepy, the abandoned cars, bad map, dusk decending, and then the ..., I'll just say yikes! Good suspense and overall execution.

It has a very Stephen King-esque vibe to it. I approve!

I will never look at corn the same way again. Creepy and suspenseful. The story built from so innocent and everyday to a nightmare. Fun story and great writing.
