I get asked this a lot. I get inspired from a lot of things. Dreams are the important source. I dream very vividly, usually chased by monsters and demons, running through hallways of opulent decadence. So that's more than enough material right there. I also review horror movies and sometimes I get inspired after watching one. Sometimes I hear a song and I get an idea for a character and that character leads me to a story. Other times, I want to capture an emotion or a feeling and the story or poem emerges from that starting point. I'm always open and ready for inspiration wherever I can find it.
The two compilations, A Fine Day for Murder and Into the Dark are dark but not overly dark. They're not terribly gruesome though they may be bloody at times. I'm more focused on the characters' inner lives, and psychological horror than trying to disgust or terrify the reader with visual depictions of violence. The darkness is more akin to The Twilight Zone and Buffy. However the short stories I have written recently are a bit darker and more intense.
My horror poetry is poetry that captures a mood or tells a story. It doesn't rhyme and doesn't abide by any poetry rules. Art should defy convention.
