Tell us a little about yourself. I am an award winning writer, essayist, playwright, reporter, and TV news producer. My work has appeared in numerous publications from Cemetery Dance magazine to Exploring Alaska, and I have written for many publishers including Zondervan, Barnes & Noble Books, Adams Media, Chronicle Books, Borderlands Press, and Pocket Books. I've been a joke writer for Joan Rivers and I write really bad poetry.
What was your motivation behind this project? I have always thought there was a way to take some of the standard ideas in secular horror (haunted houses, etc.) and write them for a Christian audience. Something Stirs is my haunted house novel.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? God is bigger than anything that confronts us. He is able to repair our brokenness, give us true hope, and help us discover our own worth. There is power in the name of Jesus; the power to transform lives.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? In watching the interaction of the characters as the book progressed I was constantly reminded of the very real consequences of our actions...good and bad.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I have always enjoyed Charles L. Grant, Mike Dellosso, Joe Lansdale, Lisa W. Cantrell, Dean Koontz, and Jonathan Maberry. Oddly enough, I don't really look for inspiration. That tends to come from the process of doing the work. Writing generates its own inspiration.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: I have been blessed more than I can say in that, not only do I get to do what I've always wanted to do for a living, but people actually read what I write. My prayer is that it will bring them enjoyment and give them a glimpse of some aspect of the Love of God.
