ABOUT STEPHEN SIMPSON
I write nightmarish books that will probably scare your socks off and they should maybe come with warnings, but it is the thrill of a racing heart, the goosebumps on my skin, the spine-tingling anticipation of what lies beyond the page that excites me to write horror stories.
In my spare time, I watch a lot of horror movies, and when combined with my vivid imagination and intense fear of the dark there can realistically only be one career path for me - horror fiction author.
I live in Northern Ireland with my family, one African Chiclid, a cat who just moved in one day, a Chinchilla, and maybe a haunting or two.
How long have you been writing?
For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved making up stories. Stories are how I have always kept myself entertained, being rather lonely as a child. I only started writing these stories down when I was about 41 years old, so you are never too old to write your first book :o) It was only a few years ago (circa 2021) that Lynette decided to split her genres, and so I was born, and I got credit for all those scary, gory, mind-bending stories you love to read late at night.
Do you have a day job?
My day job is 100% writing related. When I'm not writing my current work-in-progress, I am making promotional graphics and videos. I create audio books, do book formatting, upload books to different retailers, and the list goes on. Being an indie author is not for the faint hearted. It's hard work and you really have to love doing it ♥
