Hello all. I have author Drake Vaughn stopping in today for an interview. It is always interesting to find out about the author behind the work.
Drake’s latest book is called When the Devil Climbs. Please read on for the interview…
BW: Welcome to my blog Drake, please tell us about yourself.
DV: I’m a horror author whose “crinkled fiction” is a blend of the thrilling macabre, dark humor, and supernatural madness with a heavy psychological bent. I enjoy writing about the shadowy, gruesome corners of the human experience and eerie tales of the occult.
BW: When did you know you wanted to be a writer?
DV: I started as a passionate reader, which helped cement an interest in telling my own stories. As a child, I created a book in the second grade about the death of a crayon, so I guess I always had a morbid curiosity. I also enjoyed cartooning in school where I’d draw caricatures of the teachers in goofy situations. I’d pass them around to get laughs, mostly from the girls, so I guess that was a strong motivation as well. Mostly, I enjoy the exploring of ideas that speculative fiction offers.
