Interview with Amy Michelle Mosier, author of Midnight Guests and Other Weird Stories
Inspired by Twilight Zone, Midnight Guests and Other Weird Stories is a collection of 13 short stories of much variety. There are ghosts and monsters of my own making. In a couple of them, the monsters are us – that is, humans because of the way we sometimes act monstrous to each other. The longest story and opus magnus of the book is “The Wind in the Hollow” and I leave the reader (hopefully) guessing about who the real villain is.
Ghosts, monsters, villains – we’re firmly in the territory of horror fiction, right?
Without the label of a genre, how will readers know if they’ll like it? Who do you think it’ll appeal to?
Ha ha, that’s fighting talk! Tell us about any of the characters in one of your stories.
And Peter and Fernando have a close friendship as kids, leisurely wasting away summers riding bikes and such.
And there’s a schizophrenic child named Margaret Forsythe who has six invisible friends. Forsythe sounds like such a naturally evil surname.
How would you like the reader to feel as they read the last word of your book?
Oh? Why poetry?
We won’t argue the point. Tell us more about yourself.
Do you have a website where we can keep up with your work?
How can we follow you on Twitter and/or Facebook?
