Every up and coming author has probably had to deal with the subject of trying to get free funds to use to establish themselves. Getting such funds, also known as grants, can be somewhat of a challenge as I am figuring out for myself. All I can say is, just like everything else in my life, I will persevere. Sincerely, I truly want to promote literature with my material, wicked as it may be. And literacy as a whole. I believe it is truly sad how low the academic standards in my homeland of America have dropped since I was a child. I believe if I can achieve what I want to, I can at least cease this trend and promote horror at the same time. Two birds with one stone, if you will!
I am a horror fanatic as well as a writer. I consider my contemporary peers tame by my standards and hopefully one day, my works will set the standard! I have completed 32 short stories and have published 3 books of short stories. I have completed 3 novels, 3 novellas, and have completed two parts for a dark fantasy series. I write what I consider 'Elemental' Horror, borrowing from genre's such as Gothic, Gore, the traditional ghost story, and the Occult. Hail Horrors!!
