Artistic Statement

I tell human stories set during extreme situations. I consider myself a horror writer, as most of my work uses at least the mechanics (if not also the references) of the horror genre as a leaping off point, but, for what ever it might be worth, to me the genre encompasses authors like William Shakespeare, Cormac McCarthy, Margaret Atwood, and Harold Pinter, as well as Stephen King, Peter Straub, Richard Matheson, and Clive Barker. I aim to for a theatrical experience that is darkly comic, frightening, fast paced, and hits the head as well as the gut.
