Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I wrote a story in 6th grade about two kids who go into a haunted house. They encounter a demonic television that spits out horror icons like Freddy Krueger, Dracula and Chucky that attack the kids. They end up escaping at the end. This was for a contest, which I won a prize for, oddly enough.

What is your writing process?
As far as fiction goes, I load up on caffeine. I'll drink an Amp or coffee before I start. I'll then put on some music, usually alt. rock or metal. Sometimes I'll come with a music list that reflects the type of scene I'm writing, sad, angry, action packed. This happens late at night or early in the morning due to my current third shift schedule. My wife and son are asleep, so it eliminates distraction. I don't like referring to them in that way, but you know.
