I love horror and thrillers, especially the psychological kind. Beyond Return of the Aliens and a YA story I wrote way back in 1995 or so, I hadn’t really written anything in the horror or thriller genres. I enjoy both thrillers and horror, but I prefer more of the psychological type. I’m not much into the whole slasher ones.
Anyway, last November I went to a writer’s conference, and there was this workshop on writing flash fiction. Afterwards, I decided to try my hand at both horror and flash fiction. This piece is the result of my experiment.
I thought I’d go ahead and publish it on Smashwords. Otherwise, it was sitting on my computer doing nothing. I don’t know if I’ll write any more of these stories, but it was fun to do something different.
Here’s the description of this flash fiction story: A lone traveler arrives at an old house in the middle of the night. Even creepier than the house is the man who lives there. But not everything is as it seems.
I am going to try a flash fiction piece for romance to see if I can do it.
