What is your name and what is your horror area of interest?
Hello, I’m M.D. Neu. I’m a Paranormal and Urban Fantasy author. I grew up on Stephen King’s books and I fell in love. There is nothing better then a creepy story, told right. I also, enjoy Alfred Hitchcock movies; The Birds and Psycho are my two favorites, but Rear Window is up there as well. As a writer I want my of body work to stand up to these masters of horror and psychological thrillers, maybe someday.
What is your work in HAGL2 about?
I provided an article for Horror Addicts Guide to Life 2 titled, When Did you know? It’s a personal piece about my coming out as a gay man. We all have different stories and lives to share and I wanted to offer up mine for folks to learn from and hopefully appreciate. We live in a wonderfully diverse world, and I think the more we understand about each other the better we become as a species.
What is your favorite horror subject and why?
My favorite horror subject is vampires and ghosts, I think they are wonderful. In my mind they are both misunderstood and extremely powerful. As an author you get to play with these types of monsters, and are only limited by your imagination. For example; how would vampires exist in our technological world? How do they keep themselves from being found out on social media? This is the same with ghosts, we’ve all seen the videos and heard the stories, and yes, some of it might be fancy editing and special effects, but what if it’s not? What if they are lost souls who need help? Or worse, what if they are angry souls, demons, and spirits out to cause harm and pain.
You get to play around a lot with these types of characters. I not only enjoy writing them, but I enjoy reading what others have done with them. Even some of the older horror movies with ghosts and vampires are epic and fun to watch.
What are you looking forward to in the horror genre?
I’m hoping to see a transition back to the ‘good old days’ before they showed everything on screen. I believe that no images we put on screen or down in words is nearly as powerful as our minds. King and Hitchcock both understand this in their storytelling. They never show you everything, they leave a lot up to your imagination, which is more terrifying then anything we can watch. So, I want to see more of this in movies, TV, and books. Story Tellers need to give us the basics and let our mind paint the rest of the gruesome picture.
