Over at Alan Baxter’s place I answer five questions about my Spectral chapbook, Home and Hearth, and a variety of other horror and dinner party related things.
1. What’s “Hearth and Home” all about and why did you write this story?
Well, it’s about a woman whose teenaged son has come home after a lengthy trial. He was found innocent but things are not as they should be, life doesn’t return to ‘normal’. Basically it’s the story of Caroline’s journey through figuring out just how far from normal things are. I wrote it because Simon Marshall-Jones from Spectral Press had said ‘Sooo, hey, how about a chapbook story?’ And I’d seen the work he’d done with other authors such as Gary McMahon in the chapbook series and thought ‘Yep, get me some of that!’
