Bio: For me, writing is an outlet, a means of releasing pent-up emotions and giving my imagination full reign to express itself.
My earliest attempts at creative writing began at about age eleven, when I found my mom?s old manual typewriter (yes, I said ?manual? typewriter) and began to ?two-finger? type dialogue and describe scenes from my favorite movies. Remembering actors? lines word-for-word was not a problem since back in the ?old days? (late sixties/early seventies) you could spend an entire afternoon in a theater watching a movie replay for under a dollar!
By my mid-to-late teens, I began to write my own fictional stories, most of which were inspired by some pretty vivid nightmares! It?s amazing what the subconscious can think up!
What?s resulted is a collection of short stories that run the gamut of suspense/mystery, horror/thriller, and psychic/supernatural themes. These genres have always appealed to me for their shock value. Not only do I greatly enjoy being scared and ?kept in the dark? until a story?s conclusion, but I also wish the same for my readers. With ?Night Terrors,? I believe I have achieved that level of tension. But then again, that?s my opinion. You?ll have to see . . . or read . . . for yourself!
