I’m Bad at Interviews…

Candace Nola from Uncomfortably Dark emailed me several excellent interview questions about my horror writing and I had to go and ruin everything.

Don’t believe me? Here are a few quotes from the interview.

UNCOMFORTABLY DARK: What made you want to become a writer and when did you first begin writing professionally?

JOSH: I had no choice in the matter. The demons that incubated and hatched in my head demanded an outlet, and I was powerless to resist. I’m no more a professional writer than a hostage is a professional captive.

UNCOMFORTABLY DARK: What most inspires your ideas for your stories, real-life, bits of dreams or something else? 

JOSH: A chemical imbalance, I’m assuming.

UNCOMFORTABLY DARK: What legacy would you like to leave behind?

JOSH: A general sense of unease.
