I like to draw upon my own experiences when I write my stories. I transport myself back to fearful nights spent beneath the blankets and lonely afternoons doing Ouija boards under a hot sun. I write about things that make me curious and I investigate fear. I’m influenced by intimate prose, cinema, music, and subtle human stories of the subconscious. I also love a good ghost story or a wacky horror that takes me by surprise.
