Get to know the writer:

What is your novel about?

My novel is essentially a family drama about estranged, middle-aged people still trapped in the damaging social dynamic of their family of origin. There is literally no escape.

What genres would you say this novel is in?

Definitely horror.

How would you describe this story in two words?

Twisted psychodrama.

What movie have you seen the most in your life?

Valley of the Dolls.

What is your favorite song? (Or, what song have you listened to the most times in your life?)

This is somewhat embarrassing, but probably Yes Starship Trooper.

Do you have an all-time favorite novel?

Frankenstein by Mary Shelley.

What motivated you to write this story?

It started as a personal challenge to write a screenplay at a summer camp setting, which I did. From there I developed it into a novel.

If you could have dinner with one person (dead or alive), who would that be?

William Shakespeare, which would be very weird.

Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

I’m also a filmmaker. I’m passionate about creativity in general.

What influenced you to enter your story to get performed?

It sounded like a unique opportunity.

Any advice or tips you’d like to pass on to other writers?

Write characters you really love (or love to hate) because you will be living with them for a long time.
