Hi, my name is Joe and I’m a horror writer.
I guess it’s taken me a while to get to the point where I can admit it in a straightforward fashion. It’s not, “I guess I’m a horror writer” or, “People tell me what I’m writing is horror” (which is not to be confused with people telling me my writing is horrible). Sometimes I sit and think it’s been a long twisting road to get here. The truth is, however, a case of life imitating art. It’s the act three twist that sets everything on its head: I didn’t go anywhere. I have always been here.
Even when I was readying Tolkien or Star Trek tech manuals, that was only my public reading, the acceptable stuff. But I think I carried a copy of “The Amityville Horror” for all of my eight grade year. I can’t even count how many times I checked out the battered, old, red book on demonology from the local library. I don’t remember reading them. I think I mostly got them for the pictures and the images they fired in my imagination.
So, long story short (got to save some of the mystery for later) – I love horror. I write it. I watch horror movies and I review them for a couple of websites (Red Carpet Crash and Talk Horror). And with this, I dip my toes into the horror blogger pool. If you used to visit here in the past, things are going to be a little different. Stick around anyway though. You never know what dark corner we could crawl into.
