I don't only write horror, but I mostly do. Why? I have no idea. But I grew up during the cold war on a steady diet of science fiction, disaster movies and comic books, and if that heady cocktail of alternate realities wasn't enough, there were always the nightly newscasts from a far-off land called Vietnam to add even more flavour. Stir in a dash of The Day After, garnish with a soupcon of Night Gallery, and voila, we have the brain of yours truly, served decidedly chilled.
