Wyto (Stephanie Wytovich) spoke with me recently about horror poetry and the +Horror Writers Association. Cheers!
 
Today I stole my buddy Mike Arnzen away from his computer and threw him in THE MADHOUSE with me for a short stay. Mike has been here with me a couple times now, and fun fact, has even hung out with me and explored an actual madhouse before (see: Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum). So sit back, relax, and get into the mind of one of my favorite writers!

Work
Occupation
Faculty member in Seton Hill U's MFA in Writing Popular Fiction. Writer of horror fiction, humor, poetry, and criticism.
Employment
  • Writer, 1989 - present
  • Seton Hill University
    Professor of English, 1999 - present
Story
Tagline
"Where does it go from here? / Is it down to the lake I fear?"
Introduction

I write horror fiction and teach in the Writing Popular Fiction graduate program at Seton Hill University.  I invite you to learn more about my work:

Creative Horror :  http://www.gorelets.com

Social Network  :  http://michaelarnzen.com

New books and stories and articles and classes are always in development.  I'll post news here and share research and "likes" in between all the usual wacky snippets and odd discoveries that you expect to find on sites like this. 

If you are a writer interested in learning more about the craft of (and approaching the marketplace for) genre fiction, visit Seton Hill's MFA program at: http://fiction.setonhill.edu  You also might be interested in the book I recently co-edited with Heidi Ruby Miller called "Many Genres, One Craft": http://manygenres.blogspot.com

I'm not sure what google+ really is yet, but I'm approaching it like a hallway rather than a room.
