Blood and gore?
Although my work is horrific it has very little to do with the horror genre.
Horror is cheap. Oozing drives such narratives. Rising body counts matter. There’s little time to analyze a slasher’s motivations while all that blood is being spilled.
The other story is more my domain.
I want to study a knife’s handle and why the hand that holds it has white knuckles. I want to know why it used a downward stroke on a victim instead of a lunge. One is calculated, the other is impulsive. These differences matter more to me.
Ending someone’s life is special. It’s extremely intimate. It matters how and why one life is driven to take another. Not everyone has the courage or stomach to develop such hatred and then deliver its final blow.
Before any blood falls comes evil intention.
These are my stories.
