Even from early childhood, Lilly Sinclair was intrigued by monsters in the closet, bumps in the night, and the darkest corners of the human mind. In her writing, she creates tactile characters and delicate plot lines from a well of familiar subject matter that is sure to resonate with all horror fans. Her intention, however, is to provide a fresh perspective on these universal themes, particularly through the use of archetypal role reversal.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
It was the rough beginning of what has become "Lucifer Rising: Child of Fire", which I plan to release this summer. I wrote (and scrapped) draft after draft and had ultimately given up. And then I met Paul Thomsen, author of the "American Satanists" series,and he helped me immensely by giving me a boost of confidence along with some constructive criticism. It was the catalyst I needed.
What is your writing process?
Chaos. I usually see a character very clearly, but only a vague idea of what struggle he/she is enduring. The plot line comes as I write, so even I don't know for sure how the story is actually going to end until I write it. It makes the process fun for me, because it's almost like I'm reading the story as I write it.
