Thanks for the comment on my "Risk" video lecture, Shalene! I did work with Ms. Swank at Seton Hill -- she was a riot in my literary criticism course and others, and you're lucky to have her as a teacher. I will try to post more lectures on youtube when I have powerpoints or vids to go with them, but I also capture audio from my writing classes sometimes and post them on https://soundcloud.com/dr-arnzen

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.

Bragging rights
4x winner of the Bram Stoker Award for my weird writing.
