Well, to be honest, I was always drawn to writers like Dean Koontz and Stephen King, so when I envisioned the types of stories I would write one day, I always figured they would automatically fall into the ‘horror’ category. The funny thing about Betrayals is that it happened by accident in the sense that, when I was trying to tap into that “great big library in the sky” (you know…the place where all good stories come from) for my next idea, I must’ve wandered into the wrong section. And once I had the concept of the story it simply took over. Everything else was shelved and the more the idea developed in my mind, the more I started to think that I so wanted to live in that world.
Have you been writing a long time, or is this your debut novel?
I've been writing since my early teens. My friends and family can attest to the fact that back then, wherever I went, my ugly blue typewriter went with me. And the thing weighed a ton! I started taking writing a lot more seriously a couple of years ago and Catch, my debut novel, was agented and came very close to being published. But you know what they say about near misses… It was disappointing, sure, but I got to work with some amazing people during that time and will forever be indebted to them, because my writing would be nowhere near where it is today without them.
