Stepping Outside Your Comfort Zone

Many people read my work expecting a mass of intriguing crime scenes, that almost tip the scale when it comes to blood and gore! I love creating these types of stories, but I recently asked myself if this was the only type of writing I could accomplish?
Now, several weeks later, I realize, if I intend to become an author worth his salt, I need to expand my horizons and work on material which propels me from that little comfort zone I have established. I have started this process with two of my latest digital shorts, “House of Misery” and “Misery Unleashed.” These you might classify as paranormal/horror, which may not seem to break my stronghold away from the blood lust, but it does start me in another direction and hopefully more fans are receptive to this. I promise you, the serial killer tales will still be there, but there will also be some, that just might touch your heart. (Yes, just a little hallmark.) I always envisioned my writing having multiple phases, and within each phase comes new challenges. Each will be answered in due time and I hope all of you stay around to watch! Well, time to finish editing my fourth novel, Weaving Evil,  (Old habits are hard to break). I promise you, this will knock your socks off. Hehe!

Until next time…remember, death is only a click away!
