Horror Came Naturally to me

One of the interview questions I get asked the most is ‘Why Horror?’ The answer I give is always the same. It was never my plan to write horror. It just kind of… happened.

The first book I ever sat down to write was kind of an urban fantasy YA action book. Ok I was only fifteen, but even then, the basis of the story was straight forward, and rather uninspiring. The final version was horrific in many ways. Not only was it poorly written, but it was certainly more of a horror story than an action one.

A few years later (try seven), I started my very first blog. I put my heart and soul into it and tried to post something every day. A piece of flash fiction mainly, unedited and raw, they were more like brain dumps. I would grab a concept and create something. After three months of posts, I final took a look back through them all and noticed a recurring theme. Horror

  1. Interesting … I now know why I write horror.

    “So why do I write horror? It is who I am, I can’t help it.”

    Well said, Alex, well said.
