Read on for the author’s thoughts on the series!
Alright, let me start by saying that I love scary movies, but they scare me senseless! I jump at all noises, cringe at every shadow, and can’t sleep well. Yet, with all that in mind, I can’t get enough of them! I watch them as often as possible, so it made sense that I had to write a horror series! Funny enough, most of the time I scared myself with what I wrote!
Overall I had a lot of fun writing this series. I learned a lot about suspense, fear, excitement and the like, and it was intersting trying to tackle my demons while writing. In the future, I really do hope that I get a chance to write horror again, though I might have to add some science fiction or fantasy to it to make it more my speed!
