Interview with Kevin J. Kennedy

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
When I was young I enjoyed Point Horrors but the first adult book I read and fell in love with was Richard Laymon's Darkness Tell Us. I bought it at a jumble sale for 10p because I needed to read a book and write a review for a 3rd of my exam score. It started me on a mission to read everything he had written before moving onto other horror authors.
Who are your favorite authors?
Richard Laymon
Brian Keene
Bryan Smith
Edward Lee
Jack Kilborn

How do you approach cover design?
