What sparked your interest in werewolves?
Living with four dogs gives you a taste for the tame canine world and some ideas for a supernatural wild one.
What spawned the idea for your story?
“The Perfect Present” came from a love of the Regency era, Lovecraftian horror, and outright weirdness. I like the idea of mixing manners with horror or rather throwing a bit of horror into mannerly world and seeing what happens.
Are you a Pantser or Plotter?
Since I have ADD tendencies, sometimes I’m a pantser, and sometimes I’m a plotter. The idea is to keep the process fresh and interesting.
Is this a familiar genre for you… or did you try something new?
I’ve used werewolves once before in an unpublished novel, but Lovecraftian fantasy is fairly new to me. But my writings have always been a tad weird.
What is your next project?
One world I’m working on has spirits in it that are powerful but are owned and controlled by a secret society.
For something weirder, I’m working on a world that involves bad fairies, sentient roads that purposefully lead you astray, and the traveler that handles both.
