  1. Hey thats awesome you write horror. I write a lot of horror. I love horror movies. I have a huge collection. I write a lot of vampire stories, slashers, universal monsters inspired stories, hammer inspired stories. I am 39 short stories away from writing my 1000 short story. I’ve written 26 books. I have Anxiety and Bipolar. Nice to meet you I’ll be checking out your blogs.

    1. Thanks for stopping by, and congrats on being so close to an incredible amount of stories! 1000? That’s some work ethic you’ve got there – I’m not even a tenth of the way there… I won’t ask what your favourite horror film is – I’m not that cruel. But are there any horror movies in particular that have inspired you when writing horror fiction?

      1. Plenty a lot I have ‘the’ collection of horror ‘Halloween’ ‘Scream’ slasher books with teens against a whodunnit killer ‘A Thirst For Murder’ was basically like Scream and dedicated to Wes Craven after he died. I did a fan fic book of Freddy vs Jason 2 which has Michael Myers horror legends Vincent Price, Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing and a group of teens as the heroes in that book there are a bunch of songs written in and an ending monologue from Vincent Price. I’d say Scream Halloween and The Horror OF Dracula Christopher Lee Peter Cushing movies have been the most influential. Halloween is my favorite horror movie. I have done so many different kinds of horror.
