Interview at The Interrogation Room

It was great to be invited over to The Interrogation Room on the Dirty Books Blog by Tom Leins. He asked me some interesting questions about my new short story collection, Nightmare Asylum & Other Deadly Delights, and being a writer at Close To The Bone. Despite the handcuffs and the hard chair, it was an interesting experience. Tom was polite and courteous at all times – but coffee was not included…

Heres a little snippet from the interview:

Firstly, congratulations on the publication of Nightmare Asylum! How hard was it to select the stories – and indeed the running order?

I have been writing short stories for the last thirty years or more, and I have always dreamt of having my own collection. I selected my favourite stories with the strongest characters and the most unique situations for the book. Still, I wasn’t sure about the running order and wondered if I should have started it with a horror story or maybe I should have begun with a little more conventionally structured story such as ‘Women’s Work’. I am always second-guessing myself. 

Do you have a favourite story in the collection? If so, why is it your favourite?

Yes, I do! It took me about five years to write ‘Nightmare Asylum’ because I did so many drafts, trying to capture the atmosphere of a reoccurring nightmare that I had experienced in my twenties. Night after night I dreamt I was trapped in a Victorian mental asylum and nobody would believe a word I said Read Interview
