Writer Statement

The trends that you will find in my horror stories usually include two types of elements: the supernatural and the folly of man's assertion that he/she has control of situations that will not be controlled. Combined I use them to illustrate the scariest thought to me what is supernatural just might be the natural and our actions against it is what creates the true horrors we face.
