Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I'm afraid so. I don't remember the title - third grade was a long time ago for me. Our teacher gave us an assignment to write creative short stories. I wrote an action adventure about a guy who is chased up and down the Eiffel Tower. He escapes by hiding in a dumpster. Unfortunately, in addition to not remembering the title, I also don't remember why the protagonist was being chased. I think I got a "B" or "B-"on my story.
What draws you to the paranormal and horror genres?
My family's from Transylvania.
