“I think most writers bring something of themselves and their experiences to the stories they write. There are times when it’s a deliberate choice and in others it’s completely subconscious. It can manifest in many ways, drawing upon personal experience, as one would, say, in acting for example, to resonate with the character on a deeper level, or giving a character one of your own experiences as a means to process it yourself or make it more relatable to the reader.”

“She twists our perspective and offers us a different look than what we’re used to. She uses the ‘horror’ aspect very intelligently, it’s not about blood and guts, but more about shocking us. “ link
