Are there any specific authors who inspired you to write a horror novel?

Probably all of the authors who wrote about life in a horrifying way. Ultimately, there is nothing scarier than the real world, and I confess to a need to examine dark tendencies – both on an individual and societal level.

Which books would your fans be surprised to know you love?

It’s not all darkness and mayhem here! Sometimes I just like to read about trees! And I probably need to read more about birds. And cephalopods…
